Over at PlayStation.Blog, Sony, and fans alike, are celebrating a monumental milestone. PlayStation VR, or rather, virtual reality in general has been written of as a fad by many, and ignored by many others. Yet, these numbers indicate that many people out there are ready for the next step in gaming. For the celebration, folks over at PlayStation.Blog had this to say:
“We are excited to reveal today that Sony Interactive Entertainment has officially sold-through more than three million PlayStation VR systems worldwide, along with 21.9 million PS VR games and experiences. We’d like to thank all our fans for the amazing support, and we’re thrilled that so many of our gamers have experienced the magic of VR and stepped into the captivating worlds that electrify our senses.
To commemorate this special milestone, we are delighted to announce the launch dates of two highly anticipated PS VR games coming this fall, in a collaboration with our partners:
