PlayStation VR Tops 3 Million Sales

PlayStation VR Tops 3 Million Sales

Almost 22 million PS VR games and experiences have been sold to date.

Sony's PlayStation VR headset for PS4 has now sold in excess of 3 million units, the firm has announced. The headset, released in October 2016, has seen strong software sales, with nearly 22 million VR games and experiences being sold.

To celebrate the 3 million sales milestone, Sony has announced release dates for two upcoming PS VR titles. Creed: Rise to Glory from Survios lets you jump into the shoes (and gloves) of Adonis, played by Michael B. Jordan in the original film and upcoming sequel. The game releases on September 25. Also coming to PS VR is Evasion, a first-person sci-fi shooter from Archiact. Evasion is due for release on October 9. Pre-orders for both games begin today.

Late in 2017 a revised PS VR headset was released. The new model didn't add any essential features, but did include a breakout box that allowed an HDR signal to be passed through (one new 4K TV owners were appreciated of), and thinner cables.

Tom started life on a circus in Australia before his family moved to the UK. His love of gaming started soon after, which essentially meant he bought every video game magazine available and worked numerous part-time jobs as a child in order to afford costly N64 games. He created UK site VideoGamer.com, of which he was the Editor for over a decade. He now doesn't like circuses.
