PlayStation VR Passes 1 Million Units Sold

PlayStation VR, Sony’s virtual reality headset for PlayStation 4, has reached a new sales milestone. The company has now sold more than 1 million headsets, according to The Verge.

This is up from the 915,000 figure that Sony disclosed in February. The $400-$500 headset launched in October; one major new release was Farpoint, which came out in May.

PlayStation executive Shawn Layden told The Verge that he expects PSVR sales to climb higher, remarking, “It’s still just a million units.” He added that sales should pick up this year as a result of Sony being able to better meet demand.

“We’ll have freer supply in the marketplace,” he added about availability in 2017. “We got to a point around Christmas where you would be hard-pressed to find VR anywhere. So we dialed back some of our promotional activity at that time because we didn’t want to be promoting a platform for people to find out they couldn’t get it.”

Back in February, a report claimed that Sony was projecting PSVR sales to reach 1 million units by mid-April, so it seems like that was a success.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
