Sadly, aside from the official name, Sony didn’t give us any information on PlayStation VR.

That includes any inkling of a more concrete release date.

Back in June, Sony’s head of Worldwide Studios, Shuhei Yoshida said that key details surrounding the VR headset’s launch plans were still to be confirmed.

For now we’ll have to settle for the loose 2016 release date that we’ve been given so far.
