PlayStation VR was launched last month in mid October and many gamers were eager to get their hands in the technology. However, VR still has a ways to go before it hits mainstream gaming and some have wondered if the technology is quite there yet.
Earlier today at the company’s earning briefings, Sony’s chief financial offer Kenichiro Yoshida stated that sales of PlayStation VR are “on track.” The reporting period for the last quarter actually ended on Sept. 30, which is most likely why Sony didn’t give an exact figure.
An exact estimated figure for PlayStation VR seems not to have been drawn up by Sony. In September, PlayStation boss Shuhei Yoshida stated: “To be honest, we don’t know what the demand will be.”
In October, shortly before PlayStation VR’s launch, PlayStation executive Jim Ryan stated that “hundreds of thousands” of units will be sold at launch. It has been predicted by Superdata that PlayStation VR could sell 2.6 million units by the end of 2016.
We may have to wait a little longer to get the exact figures, but Sony seems to be happy with sales so far. PlayStation VR has received a good response from gamers but it’s yet to get any truly great games.
As we reported earlier, Xbox head Phil Spencer has stated that he’s excited by VR technology, but feels it still has a way to go. Do you own a PlayStation VR headset? Are you impressed?
