It’s been a big few months for PlayStation VR with the release of acclaimed games like Farpoint, SUPERHOT VR, and Tiny Trax – all of which have scored highly here at Push Square. And pushed for an update on the peripheral, outspoken Sony bigwig Jim Ryan has noted that the device is “going really well” – even exceeding the organisation’s expectations in some area.
“We’re nine months in now, and we’ve sold over one million sets,” he told German channel Inside PlayStation. “There are 100 virtual reality experiences already in the market, which is an amazing number – it’s way ahead of anything we were expecting. On average, people with PlayStation VR are buying about five games. So, it’s a really healthy ecosystem building between these bitesized titles and the larger releases like Resident Evil 7.”
Ryan hinted that there’s much more to come for Sony’s virtual reality headset, but wouldn’t be drawn on specifics. It’s fair to assume that we’ll be seeing a lot more PlayStation VR content at the company’s Paris Games Week press conference later in the year, however – especially with a number of its European studios hard at work on the device.
