PlayStation VR Tops 1 Million Units, Horizon: Zero Dawn Tops 3.4 Million

Sony Interactive Entertainment has revealed (via Business Insider) the latest sales figures for both PlayStation VR and Horizon: Zero Dawn.

The PlayStation VR headset has sold over one million units since its launch in October of last year. Horizon: Zero Dawn has sold over 3.4 million copies since its launch in February of this year.

In total, worldwide sales for PlayStation 4 are “almost” 60 million, considering they reported over 60 million shipments in April of this year. The company also noted PlayStation 4 Pro consoles make up one in five of total PlayStation 4 hardware sales.

Finally, Sony announced a “Days of Play” promotion from June 9th to the 17th, where they’ll host big sales on both software and hardware. They’ll be launching a limited edition, gold-colored PlayStation 4 console during the promo, which will retail for $249.99.

    So many people trying to look up Summer Lesson Girl’s skirt.

    More money for more amazing Sony output!

  • Mr0303

    By my estimation the Pro sold just over 2 million. I’m kind of glad that the adoption rate isn’t too great – perhaps Sony will drop this terrible mid generational trend.

  • totenglocke

    I’m amazed they found a million retards willing to pay $600+ to strap a phone to their face and wave some wiimotes around.

  • Travis Touchdown

    They’re not going too. They desperately want this to happen.

  • Travis Touchdown

    They very likely didn’t. Most people who bought it just bought it for the novelty and then never actually really used it.

    I know DSPgaming owns one. That’s the kind of person I imagine bought it.

  • Travis Touchdown

    Yeah, I strongly doubt Horizon sold that much. For a title that no one is talking about or cares about at all…? No.

    PSVR, I think, is one of the biggest Playstation related disasters in recent memory. I could see Capcom outright sinking themselves trying to get that thing to take off.

  • Fenrir007

    Wait, the PSVR involves phone strapping?

    Someone is butthurt

  • Travis Touchdown

    No, no, I’m just knowledgeable about how Sony operates.

    Breath of the wild is released on a dead system and fast-selling one but hard to find due to shortage.

    Horizon is released on a 60 million units console.

    Both games are not in direct concurrence even they had been release the same week.

    You have more chance to find a copy of horizon and a PS4 to play it than to find a switch to play Breath of the wild.

    Most of this numbers are based on the shipments (sold to retailers not to customers) and digital sales. No used copy are counted, and it had already been told Horizon reached 2.5 millions unit in two week. It was already outselling breath of the wild it’s not a recent news. The PSVR lead the VR scene due to being cheaper than the HTC vive and Occulus rift

    The Pro is actually great for people like me who don’t buy consoles at launch- I suspected something like the Pro was going to happen. It’s a great piece of engineering.

    What I’m more worried about is a 5 year console cycle.

  • Mr0303

    Good for you, but I’m fundamentally against these mid generational upgrades – they segregate the player base and give devs more work in terms of optimisation, which will often lead to performance issues on one of the platforms.

    I’d much rather have proper generations than mimicking the mobile market.

  • totenglocke

    “What I’m more worried about is a 5 year console cycle.”

    Historically, five years is the normal life span of a console. The only reason why the 360 and PS3 were dragged out so long is because they were sold at such a huge loss initially that they couldn’t afford to release a new system until they finally made a decent profit.

  • totenglocke

    How does some people paying for better graphics hurt anyone else? You have the same games on both systems. I bought a PS4 a couple of years ago and haven’t upgraded because most games don’t get a huge improvement (plus I haven’t found a good gaming 4k TV at a reasonable price), but unlike you, I’m not jealous that someone else might have slightly better graphics.

  • Mr0303

    Did you even read my post before replying? Where in it am I complaining about better graphics or being “jealous”?

    I said that these mid generational upgrades segregate the player base since some multiplayer games will perform better on the upgraded platform, which gives them an advantage and that they give developers more work in terms of optimisation, which may lead to issues on one of the platforms.

  • Feniks

    Yeah I only play weebshit that doesn’t push the PS4 hardware and won’t for a long time so a long cycle is best for me money wise. I like Sony for supporting their hardware for 10 years.

  • totenglocke

    The headset is functionally just a screen strapped to your face, no different than the “VR” crap with cell phones.

  • Fenrir007

    Ah, I see.
