Sony’s PlayStation VR headset is officially a success — and more big price cuts are coming

If you were an early PlayStation VR adopter who worried about the long-term health of the platform once the novelty wore off for developers, you should probably relax a little.

Sony has confirmed the PlayStation VR headset has surpassed the two million units barrier a little more than a year after it first went on sale.

That makes it the most successful virtual reality headset currently on the market.

The new figures include sales up to December 3, meaning the heavy discounts on Black Friday will have contributed significantly to the tally.

Sony only passed 1 million sales in June, so the uptick has been significant in the last few months.

150 VR experiences are now available for PSVR, with Sony saying 12.2 million copies of them have been sold.

Sales are likely to be boosted further still by the newly-announced holiday discounts in the United States.

The PSVR Gran Turismo Sport bundle (featuring the headset and tracking camera) will cost just $199, which is lower than the best Black Friday price of $239.

70 million and counting

Elsewhere Sony announced the PlayStation 4 console has now surpassed 70 million sales overall. That’s an additional 10 million in the last nine months.

Sony is also offering deals on the PS4 Pro over the festive season. It’ll be $350, matching the Black Friday discounts. The company is yet to announce discounts for the UK market.
