PS VR Sells 2 Million Units

Sony has revealed that its PlayStation VR hardware has now sold more than two million units worldwide. The news comes on the back of positive momentum from the PS4, which now has an installed user base of more than 70.6M, meaning that nearly 3% of PS4 owners have also bought PS VR in the year since its release in October 2016.

Sony shipped in excess of 900,000 PS VR units within the first four months from launch, taking a further nine months to double this figure without early adopters or a holiday season to boost sales.

The impressive 150 VR titles currently available on the PS VR have aided adoption of the tech, achieving more than 12.2 million copies sold at retail stores across the globe, according to the latest sales data from Sony. Games such as Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, Farpoint and Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes are among the some of the most popular experiences. Sony confirmed that over 130 future titles, including anticipated games like Moss and Bravo Team are heading to PS VR.

Andrew House, Chairman of Sony Interactive Entertainment said, “We are delighted that so many people are enjoying the unique entertainment proposition of PlayStation 4 and that an emerging technology like PlayStation VR continues to gain traction… We will continue to work closely with partners to maintain this momentum and remain steadfast in making PS4 the best place to play.”
