VR can’t be dy­ing if Sony’s sold three mil­lion PSVR units

Not to men­tion the sale of 22 mil­lion games and ex­pe­ri­ences as well.

Where HTC and Ocu­lus typ­i­cally re­main mum on sales num­bers, Sony is known to brag about how many units of its Play Sta­tion VR head­set it has sold. By the end of July, the Ja­panese com­pany had sold three mil­lion head­sets — along with 21.9 mil­lion games and ex­pe­ri­ences — clearly in­di­cat­ing its pop­u­lar­ity hasn’t de­clined since its 2016 launch. One rea­son for its pop­u­lar­ity could be that it works with a com­par­i­tively af­ford­able PS4 con­sole, and doesn’t need a beefy PC rig like the Vive or Rift re­quire. An­other rea­son is the amount of con­tent avail­able on the plat­form, with 340 high­qual­ity games and ex­pe­ri­ences ex­clu­sive to the PSVR, with more on the way.
