Sony Has Now Sold Over 3 Million PlayStation VR Units Worldwide

Sony Has Sold 3 Million PlayStation VR Systems

Other new PS VR games include Winking Entertainment's "Unearthing Mars 2: The Ancient War", scheduled for release September 18, according to Eleanor Liu, that company's marketing and PR manager. Sony has managed to ship more than 21.9 million PSVR games and experiences in this time, which is testament to its success among peers.

In one sense, this is an wonderful number, and it's pretty clear that PS VR is a sales leader in this market.

The PlayStation accessory became so popular that market research back in 2016 revealed that the PS VR took control of the market share over other VR devices such as Oculus and Vive.

Oculus declined to say how many headsets it had sold to date, while HTC, Microsoft and Samsung didn't immediately comment. The main question was how well developers would support the system, but looking at Sony's most recent figures, it seems the average PSVR owner is buying around seven games and experiences to accompany the system.

IDC recently projected that VR headset sales will soar from 8.1 million in 2018 to 39.2 million by the end of 2022, representing a five-year compound annual growth of 48.1%.


The post details some of the platform's best-selling games - which includes Skyrim VR, Resident Evil 7 Biohazard and Farpoint - and highlights two upcoming titles (Creed: Rise to Glory and Evasion) that are coming in the next two months.

The PlayStation VR version of Creed: Rise to Glory will launch on 25th September 2018, for $29.99 United States dollars. Evasion launches on October 9.

See the announcement at the PlayStation Blog.

The numbers of PSVR compared to those of competitors (and competitors is a stretch considering the only VR unit capable of being used with a PlayStation is PSVR) are very telling.

Sony is celebrating the PSVR's latest milestone in several ways.
