One Million Gamers and Counting

VR gaming is over a year old now, and while the technology hit with a lot of hype and excitement, the harshness of reality has set in for a lot of gamers. Now Sony is backing up those sales with actual games which the company outlined in a blog post today.

Sony Computer Entertainment America president Shawn Layden has celebrated the birthday of the PlayStation VR headset by announcing it has over one million users.

PlayStation VR was created to open a doorway into thrilling and captivating new worlds that electrify our senses. Unlike with traditional video game development, there isn't a huge pool of virtual reality successes and failures to learn from and iterate on. For starters, there will be more than 60 new PS VR games released to the platform between now and the beginning of 2018. "Or maybe even an entirely new alphabet!" claimed Layden.

"Of course we're still drawing from the long, proud history of traditional video games development - but VR's unique capabilities mean developing entirely different levels of artistry and engineering", he continued. "Making VR a mainstream sensation will require the full efforts of our very best and brightest".

There will be more news coming on PSVR over the coming months with the PlayStation experience in December expected to unveil new projects and experiences. "I can tell you the best is yet to come", says Layden. And as we celebrate today, I want to give my sincerest thanks to the adventurous teams who helped create, shape, and build PlayStation VR. Looks like there's a good few months of gaming ahead.
