Speculation has circulated within the gaming industry regarding Sony’s purported reduction in production of the highly anticipated PSVR2, stemming from lower-than-expected demand. However, PlayStation has recently announced that as of April 1st, they had sold an impressive 600,000 units of the virtual reality headset. This translates to an average of 100,000 VR headsets sold per week since its launch in late February, surpassing the performance of its predecessor, the PSVR (1), which sold 550,000 units during the same timeframe. PSVR (1) took approximately eight months to reach one million units sold, a milestone that PSVR2 is highly likely to surpass.

The information regarding these sales figures was revealed during Sony’s internal presentation on gaming, hardware, and additional services. The success of PSVR2 has surpassed initial projections, indicating a strong and enthusiastic market reception for the next-generation virtual reality experience. Sony’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of gaming technology seems to be paying off, as the demand for PSVR2 demonstrates a growing interest in immersive gaming experiences.

With the impressive sales figures achieved within the first month, Sony’s PSVR2 is poised to become a significant player in the virtual reality market. As players embrace the new possibilities offered by the advanced headset, it is evident that virtual reality gaming is gaining traction and becoming an integral part of the gaming landscape.
