PlayStation VR Sales “Hit $500 Million”

Grasping-Ooi-PS-VR-by-Kozou-Rifa

Naysayers and haters of constantly improving VR technology have been proved wrong on the profitability of PlayStation’s VR headset, as the device has managed to hit over $500 million in sales – and that is not including game sales.

While the amount of units sold is not exactly overwhelmingly impressive (about 1.5 million headsets in October) compared to Sony having sold over 67.5 million units of its PS4 worldwide, the device itself is quite expensive and comes in a variety of different bundles – having launched at around $500 and now being discounted to $290 for just the headset.

The milestone (if anything) demonstrates that the technology is quickly becoming a popular medium and will surely become even more notable when further advancements are made, though many may only be interested in the device’s pornographic capabilities…

    Join the "erotic virtual reality experience" discord channel, download all the VR Porn you want in SD (PS4 is not that great at the HD stuff, but Pro is better) then put the videos on a USB storage device. Plug it into the PS4 and use the Littlstar app in the PS4 Video section to view your vids.

    I don't use my PS-VR much, when I do it's often the little show/documentary type stuff on the PS store.
    The one game that convinced me to buy the VR was EVE Valkyrie and it really is an amazing title... just wish it was more single player than multi!

    Playstation VR is doomed like many other VR systems.

    in the 80s companies tried and failed. history will repeat itself.

    click-bait wont help sony, only a price cut will allow their VR to limp on a little longer.

    sword art online fans will never experiance anything remotly close to whats dipicted in that shit boring anime.

    As history has also taught us, whenever a new technology comes along, the deciding factor on its success is whether the porn industry adopts it or not.

    And it has.

    Not helping matters is the fact PC + Linux have a real quality control problem with a flood of shitty indie "VR" titles making VR as a whole look bad. 80% of the VR titles on Steam wouldn't even see the light of day if they did not require VR just to play.

    Personally I think VR is just another silly fad like it was in the 80's, but I won't let that get in the way if it eventually becomes affordable enough to succeed.

    It's not really popular though. It's a gimmick with so little market share that no interesting titles that are finetuned to it can be developed without massive subsidies by sony (and they won't do it). The technology has potential but the headsets have to become much lighter, the screens have higher resolution and the console more powerful. Maybe next generation.

    and that's why there are, at least, another 50 (FIFTY!) VR games in development for PSVR...

    You are actually not exactly wrong but I disagree with your conclusion.
    It IS a Gimmick but for a Gimmick to sell a Million Units is really damn good ... actually it could be more but at least here in my (German) City it usually sold out (with many preorders for new Stock).

    The Face of my Boss when we sold out the Stock the First Day was priceless (he expected it to be Non-seller but was forced to stock the standard Amount from the Main Branch)

    Yeah, sure, if you don't ask for quality, there are a lot of games. Whatever lets you sleep at night.

    Uh... It really isn't that impressive..

    This is more like:
    "Some people are still buying it....kind of...when you don't look at the number of ps4's and the sales charts of....SHUT UP, I LIKE IT!!"

    500 million, on a $500 piece of hardware... So 1 million sold. That's not a high amount.

    The one's that don't try to justify their spending. VR is for people who play 1 hour at a time.

    Or ... It could be that People genuinely like the Experience you know?
    Frankly what you just wrote can be said about any form of expensive entertainment.
    I don't have one but was able to use it and I'm currently saving for one of the newer ones, there are currently several Headsets in the Works that are cheaper and better than the Rift and Vive so we will see how it looks later.

    The whole "virtual reality" name is a marketing gimmick. It's not real fuckin' VR. It's just a goddamn headset with screens and shit built in.

    What the fuck are they going to call "virtual reality" when we actually get it?
