Sony registers new trademarks related to its Virtual Reality device

Project Morpheus (Sony’s Virtual Reality solution) was unveiled in the GDC (Game Developers Conference) last month.

Sony has not given info about the prices or release date for the new device, but its launch may occur sooner than we thought. This month, Sony Computer Entertainment registered some trademarks related with Project Morpheus at the Japan Patent Office.
