In an article from the New York Times, Global Chief Executive of Sony Interactive Entertainment Andrew House announced that Sony has sold through 915,000 units of the PlayStation VR. The sales numbers are being touted as stronger than anticipated given Sony’s internal goal of selling 1 million units in the first six months (for reference PS VR launched on October 13th).
It was speculated that the PlayStation VR had sold more than the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive combined, and this confirms it (with those two having sold less than 700,000 units through the end of 2016).

VR has a long way to go to reach the mainstream, but with three different companies approaching a combined 2 million units in sales, it’s clear there’s a market today for a technology poised to dominate the future. It will be interesting to see if PS VR sales continue strong through the year and if Microsoft responds in any way at E3.
