Sony Has Sold 3 Million PlayStation VR Systems

Nearly 340 games are available for the system, Sony said, and it shared the 10 most popular to show that PSVR owners are playing a variety of games.

Despite having a rather quiet start, PlayStation VR has gradually won the hearts of many PlayStation players, not only due to an important price cut but also to a constant commitment by Sony, who has continued to believe in the project by publishing many VR titles, meaning the headset has now sold over 3 million units globally. We know because, today, PlayStation is celebrating 3 million sold systems. The main question was how well developers would support the system, but looking at Sony's most recent figures, it seems the average PSVR owner is buying around seven games and experiences to accompany the system.

That's far more than the approximately 1.6 million Oculus headsets shipped (about 700,000 in 2017 and 900,000 in 2018), 1.1 million HTC Vive headsets shipped (about 500,000 in 2017 and 600,000 in 2018), 450,000 Microsoft headsets shipped (about 300,000 in 2017 and 150,000 in 2018) and 1.5 million other headsets shipped (about 500,000 in 2017 and 1 million in 2018). "We are several years away from this becoming significant".

Now, talking about PS VR games, Sony revealed that Bethesda's The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Sony's PlayStation VR Worlds were the most-played games on the platform.
