There are quite a few large companies out there that are currently working on their own virtual reality headsets. As far as Sony is concerned, its Project Morpheus has just received a brand new name, which is definitely catchier: PlayStation VR. The name change was announced by the Japanese company during the Tokyo Game Show press conference, where Sony’s representatives also revealed that the hardware would be available to try on the show floor.

The PlayStation VR will compete with other similar headsets such as Vive, which is being developed by Valve and HTC. Facebook’s Oculus Rift also deserves a mention, of course, as does the Microsoft HoloLens and the Samsung Gear VR. The PlayStation VR will boast some impressive specs at launch. Its current version features a 5.7-inch OLED display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, as well as nine LEDs that ensure proper positional awareness. Sony has yet to reveal an exact release date for its virtual reality headset, but one of its previous statements pointed to 2016.

      If it cranks down the graphics of the games it will. Why do everyone just blatantly think you need the best graphics for a good VR experience?
