announced that it has sold over 3 million PlayStation VR systems. While that's an impressive feat, it gives us an indication that virtual reality (still) hasn't really hit the mainstream.
But it's hard to really give the 3 million number context. Most manufacturers don't release sales numbers for their VR headsets -- competitors like HTC's Vive and Facebook's Oculus never have. According to earlier reports, Sony sold 915,000 PSVR sets by mid-February 2017, about four months after it released. This would mean Sony sold 2.1 million PSVR sets over the next year and a half.
Statista forecasts that Sony will account for 43 percent of the VR devices shipped in 2018, with Oculus following at 19.4 percent and HTC at 12.9 percent. That would put Sony pretty far ahead of the competition.
Sony also said that it has sold 21.9 million VR games. To celebrate, Sony announced two new games coming to PSVR: Creed: Rise to Glory (which releases Sept. 25) and Evasion (which releases Oct. 9). Preorders for both games are open now.
