PSVR sold 500k in three month period through June

Forums - Sony Discussion - PSVR sold 500k in three month period through June

I don't understand why people care about VR and I never want it to become the norm. Oh well. I'll be dead long before it becomes the norm, or even very popular.

You cannot complain that there is no competition on the market when you yourself completely isolate yourself from it. You were the one completely splitting the market by tethering your device to your console. So either allow other HMDs to work with PS4 or bring your HMD to PC or shut the fuck up.

There is no competition on the market because you want it so and you god damn know it.

And here I thought that PC was always that very big market that consoles gamers were missing... but seem like VR to have more competition Sony would have to also sell over the PC markets and leave competitors without market? Or you really think Oculus and HTC would sell much better on PS4 than on PC?

 

@OP I hope it grows even more.

This ^



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

VR is pretty cool. When RE7 came out i got a chance to play it on my friends PSVR and it was a great experience.

Most useless gaming gimmick since 3D.

How is it useless?

Because it's more fun to be in the game and freely look around instead of looking at it through a window?
I hope you still have more than a decade to live.

I don't get it personally. I'd rather know my surrounding and also feel like if I wanted to i could easily get out of a game. 

Eh

Damn, they're complaining because they're selling too much lol. They could dominate all of the market with PSVR2 if they support PC. I really hope they will do that, it's better for the consumer to just buy PSVR and have it work on 2 of machines. HMDs should be interchangeable, just like controllers.

Why would the PSVR dominate the PC market.  They would lose out to the OR and VIVE on hardware and pretty soon MS and their partners will have a device in the Market that does both AR/VR for a cheaper price.  If anything the the PC market is going to become more competitive which should be good for Sony.  Better,. cheaper devices will increase adoption of VR and thus more games.  If MS makes a standard framework then we will see more AR/VR devices in the market at cheaper prices which should hit that sweet spot for mass market appeal.

Sony sales are already a lot bigger than the others while they are outside of PC, so the probability of they selling even more if on PC is real, and it's even possible that they could outsell HTC and Oculus on PC as well.

Has it passed 2m shipped yet? Its been available for almost a year now.

The fact that this is in the lead just shows you how little demand there is for VR.

Possibly so, they sold 500k in 3 low sales months, why wouldn't they have sold 1.5M in the other 9 months?

All reports Sony gave on PSVR were of good sales.
