Sony officially unveiled the consumer title for the Project Morpheus during the Tokyo Game Show Sept. 15.

We've known about the virtual reality helmet and even its first quarter 2016 release window for some time, but during their Tokyo Game Show keynote, Sony execs got specific about the intention of the device. They renamed it the Playstation VR.

Forbes provides further details:

First announced back in March 2014 at the Game Developers Conference, Sony's Oculus Rift rival is powered by the Japanese giant's latest console – the PlayStation 4 – so the official moniker makes sense.

"The name 'PlayStation VR' not only directly expresses an entirely new experience from PlayStation that allows players to feel as if they are physically inside the virtual world of a game, but it also reflects our hopes that we want our users to feel a sense of familiarity as they enjoy this amazing experience," said Masayasu Ito, EVP, Division president of PS Product Business and VP, Software Design Division.

"We will continue to refine the hardware from various aspects, while working alongside third party developers and publishers and SCE Worldwide Studios, in order to bring content that deliver exciting experiences only made possible with VR."



Virtual reality is on its way, folks. And there are many, many options between this Playstation VR, the Oculus Rift, HTC/Valve's Vive, Microsoft's Hololens and more. Let's hope this variety of product provide more than disappointment.

How quickly the time goes by, especially when you're playing video games.

Over at the Playstation Blog

they've begun celebrating the landmark anniversary of the first Playstation launch in America, which happened 20 years ago Sept. 9.

Those were exciting and pioneering times for all of us: new technology, the arcade experience in the home, and no guarantee that we would still be around come the turn of the century –- or sooner. Exciting times indeed.

But we did make it. And thanks to the dedication and passion of the greatest gaming community of all time, the PlayStation Nation, we are celebrating the twentieth birthday of the original PlayStation system, which officially launched in North America on September 9th, 1995. At its launch, PlayStation was a stylish, powerful, developer-friendly game console that popularized polygonal 3D graphics and CD playback of games and music.



Do you have any memories of that launch? Any favorite PS1 games?
