Sony's PSVR Has Sold Over 3 Million Units Worldwide

Sony Has Sold 3 Million PlayStation VR Systems

Other VR gaming makers, like HTC (which makes the Vive headset) and Oculus (which makes the Rift and the recently-debuted Oculus Go), don't disclose their sales numbers, so it's tough to generalize a larger industry trend from Sony's report. Specifically, Statista shows that PSVR has sold 2.7 million units - it's likely their data is soon to be updated now that Sony has announced PSVR has hit 3 million - with Oculus only selling 1.5 million.

In addition to 3 million in sales of the hardware, Sony said it has sold 21.9 million games and "experiences" for the device. To celebrate the milestone Sony is announcing the launch of a pair of new PS VR games that will land this fall. "Creed: Rise to Glory" features the same title character as the MGM/New Line Cinema film "Creed II", the latest movie in the "Rocky" film series, which is being released theatrically November 21. The game is called Creed: Rise to Glory and will launch on PS VR systems September 25 with pre-orders underway now.

Along with those two new games heading to the virtual reality headset, Sony is also talking up the ten most played games on the platform. This is quite an achievement considering the VR unit costs almost as much money as a PS4 console itself. As an added bonus, an exclusive avatar and theme pack will be available to those in SCEA regions who pre-order. There's a selection of around 340 PSVR games to choose from, and plenty more to come, so if you haven't yet taken the plunge, now's a great time to do so.

PlayStation is also offering discounts for VR titles on the PlayStation Store. Games such as Beat Saber, Tetris Effect, and Blood and Truth are among the games coming out for PS VR this year. Do you think Sony will continue to support VR when next-gen rolls around?
