Sony has made an announcement that it sold 3 million PlayStation VR (PSVR) headsets by the end of July, showing that its popularity has come down since the fall 2016 launch.
At the end of 2017, Sony had sold 2 million units, which means that it sold another million in the last eight months. On the top of it, he has sent 21.9 million PSVR games and experiences, which is an impressive figure, while considering some negative press around virtual reality of late.
The fact is that Sony often tells about sales, while opponent Oculus and HTC are silent on this subject, that says a lot about the success of PSVR. This is likely because it requires only the PS4 console, not the valuable PCs like HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. There is also a lot of quality content on PSVR, now 340 games are available.
Speaking about the content, Sony celebrated the milestone by announcing the launch date of two upcoming games. The VR boxing experience Creed: To emerge on the basis of the film by the same name, Glory, PSVR will arrive on September 25, pre-order starts from 8 am this morning. Meanwhile, pre-sales is still launching for the sci-fi FPS Evasion, which comes on 9th October.
Sony revealed that the best-selling VR game to date is The Elder Scrolls V: Skirim VR, after PlayStation VR World, Rec Room and Resident Evil 7 biohazard.
