PlayStation VR, known by the codename Project Morpheus during development, is a virtual reality head-mounted display developed and manufactured by Sony Interactive Entertainment, and launched on October 13, 2016.

It was designed to be fully functional with the PlayStation 4. In certain games and demos for the VR, the player wearing the headset acts separately from other players without the headset. The PlayStation VR system can output a picture to both the PlayStation VR headset itself and a television simultaneously, with the television either mirroring the picture displayed on the headset, or displaying a separate image for competitive or co-operative gameplay. PlayStation VR works with either a DualShock 4 Controller or the PlayStation Move controllers.

The PlayStation VR headset has a 5.7 inch OLED panel, capable of outputting in 1080p. The headset also has a processor box which enables the Social Screen video output to the television, as well as process the 3D audio effect, and uses a 3.5mm headphone jack. The headset also has nine positional LEDs on its surface for the PlayStation Camera to track 360-degree head movement.
