PlayStation VR has carved it’s self out a true niche with console gamers as Sony celebrates 3 million units sold as of July. Sony could very well be the market leader for Virtual Reality as far as we know as other major manufacturers withhold sales numbers.
Unlike the PS Vita, (the handheld that Sony essentially sent out to die) PSVR has been very well supported with 340 games released to date. You’ve got experiences that range from social gaming to interactive film in addition to the traditional VR game offerings.
PSVR only requires a PS4 console in addition to your headset to get started (although you really need a PS4 Pro for better visuals) and that simplicity seems to be powering VR adoption on the platform.
We are excited to reveal today that Sony Interactive Entertainment has officially sold-through more than three million PlayStation VR systems worldwide, along with 21.9 million PS VR games and experiences. We’d like to thank all our fans for the amazing support, and we’re thrilled that so many of our gamers have experienced the magic of VR and stepped into the captivating worlds that electrify our senses.
To commemorate this special milestone, we are delighted to announce the launch dates of two highly anticipated PS VR games coming this fall, in a collaboration with our partners:
September 25, 2018
Jump into the ring with a premier VR boxing experience from Survios that puts you in the gloves of Adonis Creed on his journey from an underground amateur to a spotlight champion. Creed: Rise to Glory hits PlayStation VR September 25. Pre-orders begin today at 8am PT.
