PlayStation VR games will nearly double by the end of 2018

If you’re still holding off on a PlayStation VR purchase due to concerns over its longevity, then Sony has some reassuring news for you.

The gaming giant says there’ll be 130 new games before the end of 2018, bringing the total to 280.

In a statement to Nikkei (via siliconera), Sony said the impressive sales tally of over two million units makes it easy to justify developing more experiences.

Whether that’s through third-parties or Sony itself, there’s now enough of a user base to ensure resources continue to be funneled to VR.

Sony announced the 2 million figure back in early December, and that figure is likely to have grown significantly during the Christmas season.

Of course, the sales don’t hold a candle to the 70 million PS4 users out there, the PSVR has still made significant progress.

Sony isn’t a stranger to offering fantastic deals on the PSVR, many of which we saw during the Black Friday sales.

2017 saw impressive VR experiences like Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, Gran Turismo Sport and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

In our review of the PlayStation VR, we afforded it a perfect 10/10 score. Games editor Brett Phipps wrote: “PlayStation VR is simply the best virtual reality headset you can buy right now. It’s cheap while not compromising on performance and quality. The headset is simply stunning and incredibly comfortable to wear, and the games already available are some of the best VR experiences I’ve ever played.”
