There’s now more than 3 million PlayStation VR headsets out in the wild, Sony have announced. It ticks off another major milestone for the system which passed 2 million sales between Black Friday and Christmas last year.
It’s taken eight months to rack up this extra million sales. Along the way it will naturally have been helped along by Christmas sales and discounting around the end of the year, and a major price cut back in March. If it follows a similar pattern going forward, it looks likely that the system will pass 4 million units by the end of 2018.
Slow and steady might well win the race, but that’s not the mantra that the video games industry tends to adopt, but PSVR is clearly targeted at core gamers and not the mass market just yet. That’s emphasised by the attach rate that the system has, with 21.9 million games and experiences being sold meaning that there’s an average of seven games per headset.
