PlayStation VR headset sales have now passed 2m

PlayStation VRSales of PlayStation VR (PSVR) headsets have exceeded 2m units worldwide, six months after headset sales crossed the 1m mark.

Along with the success of its headset sales, Sony has also sold 12.2m copies of the 150 titles it currently has available on PSVR. And it has over 130 games and other entertainment content currently in development for its VR platform – which are all due to launch by the end of 2018.

Global VR headset sales crossed 1m for the first time in Q3 2017, driven by the 490,000 units sold by Sony in the quarter alone, showing its dominance in the sector. These numbers can only be expected to continue to increase following the launch of an updated version of the PSVR headset two months ago in Japan – a market where it has more than 80 per cent share.

Elsewhere, PS4 has sold more than 70.6m units worldwide, with over 617.8m copies of PS4 games sold around the globe. Meanwhile, it has games such as God of War, Detroit: Become Human, and Marvel’s Spider-Man all on the way.
