Sony's sold around 915,000 PlayStation VR headsets since launch as of 19th February. That's according to group president Andrew House as part of an interview with the New York Times. While it may not sound like an enormous number in isolation, it's worth remembering that the perpetually out of stock peripheral launched little more than four months ago, and already eclipses the estimated install base of the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive combined.

Moreover, Sony predicted that the unit would hit one million units within its first six months, meaning that it's way ahead of schedule. This actually proves that the device is selling much faster than expected, and makes the stock shortages a little easier to understand.

It's very good news for PlayStation VR, then, which is obviously an extremely expensive proposition. Let's hope the numbers continue to convince developers to pledge their support to the system, because the novelty still hasn't worn off where we're concerned.
