PSVR Turns One: One Million Gamers And Counting

Forums - Sony Discussion - PSVR Turns One: One Million Gamers And Counting

The worst thing about VR is that people have to try it to invest in it. I got my PSVR on day one and I love it* but since that day, I've seen zero demo units for it. And rightly so. I saw a news story a few days ago about a LICE epidemic happening recently because people try on Halloween costumes and put them back on the shelf. I imagine PSVR demos would cause pink eye or something.

Only 1 million so far? It were 0.915 million in February...

0.9m by February, and they sold 500k during a three month period to June

so i'm not sure why they are lowballing their numbers in this article. They should be closer to 2m than 1m.

No, I don't know. Even most of the pessimistic outlooks for VR had pegged PS VR higher than 1m+ through one year.

Although I suppose that there were a few people who expected less than 1m during that timeframe. Somewhere.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Wasnt the PSVR production stupidly low through the year?

I think i read that somewhere.

Could be wrong tho!

As part of the 1 year anniversary

104 games and experiences are onsale on the psn psvr store. (Including a couple you can play without VR like Tombraider)
If you haven't tried DC VR yet, for $10 it's a steal (65% off with ps+, 50% off without)

I bought a couple more increasing my backlog and now have almost 60 psvr titles just one year later. Looking forward to Skyrim, Doom, more RE7 and GT Sport VR.

There's a few gems, yet there are many more. Don't forget to try Rez Infinite.

Early expectations were unrealistic, here is more realistic take on it

You can still be disappointed until 2023.



I saw an article saying Oculus was going to be now $200.00

Wonder how that will affect the VR industry and/or the PSVR.

Oculus Go, not Oculus Rift
