Sony launched its PlayStation VR headset back in 2016, and today the Japanese company 1M units sold. This milestone cements Sony in second place at the VR market - Samsung is first with 5 million Gear VR units sold, while HTC Vive is trailing at third with 420,000, followed by Oculus Rift with 243,000.
Sony admits that this number should be taken cautiously since there “is a long way to go” with almost 60 million PlayStation 4 owners. Shawn Layden, CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment America, said there was a lack of VR headsets around Christmas, and Sony even held back promo activities because of supply constraints. He promised the PlayStation VR would have caught up with demand by the end of 2017.
Playstation VR owners have purchased 5.25 million VR games up to date. According to Sony, the average session is 25 minutes per person. Even though the company sells the headset for gaming, Sony Pictures is bringing the famous series Breaking Bad to the PSVR.
