PlayStation VR hits 3 million sold

Sony says PSVR software sales approaching 22 million; Skyrim tops the list of most-played PSVR games

PlayStation VR sales have apparently picked up the pace in the past year. Sony today announced that it has sold through more than 3 million units since the PlayStation 4 peripheral's debut in October of 2016.

After enjoying sales of 915,000 over its first few months, the PSVR installed base seemed to stall, ending its first year on sale with "one million-plus" players. The acceleration in sales since then was likely boosted in March of this year, when Sony cut the price of the PSVR to $299, making it the least expensive of the high-end VR headsets on the market.

Beyond celebrating the hardware milestone, Sony also announced that it has sold through 21.9 million PSVR games and experiences, with a total catalog of almost 340 games and experiences on sale worldwide. The 10 most-played PSVR games follow below.

  1. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR
  2. PlayStation VR Worlds
  3. Rec Room
  4. Resident Evil 7 biohazard
  5. The Playroom VR
  6. Job Simulator
  7. Until Dawn: Rush of Blood
  8. Batman: Arkham VR
  9. Farpoint
  10. Superhot VR
