By Muhammad Bilal Syahrir

Since its first release in October 2016, Sony has now sold 3 million PlayStation VR headsets worldwide. What an achievement.


Recently, Sony published in its blog post that it has sold over 3 million PlayStation VR headsets. Adding on to that, the company also announced that 21.9 million PlayStation VR games were also sold.

Shinta VR announces Codename: Mindvoke, a new VR multiplayer game that will be the first VR eSports tournament in Indonesia.

October 2016, Sony revealed these headsets. And at that time, it claimed to have sold 1 million pieces, meaning that the other 2 million had been sold in the last 20 months.

One of the reasons for an upswing in sales was of course because of Sony’s decision. In October 2017, it decided to release an upgraded version of headsets. The upgraded version included a new device packing, an upgraded processor with HDR support, a streamlined connection cable, and a stereo headphone cable connector.

All of the upgrades were sold at the same price as the previous version – US$399 price tag.

  1. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR

  5. The Playroom VR
  6. Job Simulator
