PSVR sold 500k in three month period through June

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

If this is the way Mr. House feels, then I am not a fan of him in the role he is in.

If PlayStation is leading the way in VR, then they should be opening up the platform to other types of content and applications. The whole push early on was to use PSVR to catapult themselves into contention with Apple, MS, and Google as an industry leader in the future.

Sony has an opening to own 50% or more of the VR market which will eventually bloom into the 100's of millions of units sold a year. They had better get with the program, and not let another massive opportunity slip away.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

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

Getting out of a game is very easy, take headset off!

As for the first thing, do you have trust issues in your environment? Do you ever play a game or watch a movie with the door closed? How do you know what's going on behind the wall? I don't play with headphones though since my surround system sounds better, plus it allows me to stay aware of my surroundings. Sound is a much better way to stay aware, f*** people that walk/jog with headphones on!

I don't like gaming with headphones on for the simple reason that does cut me off completely. I can hear what happens behind my back, above me, in the other room. Unless your wife uses sign language to communicate, you're fine with a headset, not so much with headphones :)



Pretty good sales. Small price cut and expansion to PC would be a good next step to building the audience (and increase 3rd party willingness to invest in VR).

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.

I think what they mean by there's no competition on the market is that the Rift and Vive don't bother marketing or lowering prices quickly enough to move units. Whether they bring PSVR to the PC, or allow the Rift/Vive on PS4 the result is the same. PSVR still winds up dominating the market, because the other options are either too expensive or too inferior to compete. 



The sentence below is false. 
The sentence above is true.

Has anyone tried PSVR yet on PC?

Nothing proprietary about how the headset works, you can already use it on PC.

I don't think Sony has much to worry about with too little competition not creating content. VR is fragmented on PC and mobile, but between all of them there's plenty competition in software. The tide is rising, just not as fast as some crazy predictions.

Just another week on Vive

Awesome sales especially considering its price. If Sony can get the psvr down to $200 it will go truly mainstream.

That is a start.

I would really like to see an art application on PSVR. Harmonix Music VR has some simple doodling options, but a full fledged art program would be a huge addition to the platform.

It would also be nice to see them work with other brands to create VR store fronts where you are able to try products in VR before you buy. This same concept can be used for educational apps as well. Allow people to use VR to learn to cook, weld, fold, and much more, the possabiltties are endless.

You have to open up the platfom to basically anythng and everyting. Let peoples imagination run wild, and good things will happen.
