Sony’s PlayStation VR (PSVR) headset has sold over three million units worldwide.
The company announced the news on the PlayStation Blog today, also confirming that it had sold 21.9 million games and experiences for the platform. The console launched back in October 2016 and, last December, Sony confirmed that PSVR had passed the two million mark, so it’s taken another 8 months to sell another million units. Since then, the headset has seen a few price drops and a revised model.
We don’t know how many units PSVR’s main rivals, the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive have sold still.
To celebrate the milestone, there’s a PSVR sale going on on the US PlayStation Store this week. It even includes discounts on two big upcoming games, Bow to Blood and Torn. Sony also confirmed that Creed: Rise to Glory is coming on September 25th and Evasion arrives on October 9th.
PSVR is largely considered to be one of the most accessible VR headsets on the market, running on the PS4 console rather than the more expensive and complex PCs that the Rift and Vive need.
The headset has a busy end to the year coming up with other releases like Firewall: Zero Hour in a few weeks’ time and Astro Bot: Robo Rescue also arriving in October.
