Since its launch last October, Playstation VR has sold 900,000 units worldwide and has pretty much been sold out ever since. The big issue is that Sony seemed to not believe it would do nearly as well and didn’t bother to produce anymore. However, it appears that has changed.
Speaking with MCV, Sony Immersive Technology Group Director Simon Benson said that Sony are planning to increase production of the headset. Stating..
“[The reception has been] very positive. We were very optimistic about introducing our gamers to virtual reality, but it’s only when you launch it that you know for sure.
“Creating a completely new type of gaming experience that involves wearing something on your head was a real challenge. When we see such fantastic user reviews, we know we have done a pretty good job in getting the important elements just right.
“It is still very early days, but we have a better feel for the demand for VR gaming and so we are planning to increase production. This is a really positive sign for the future of VR gaming and I’m looking forward to seeing even more people getting their hands on their own PlayStation VR headset and entering this new world.”
