PSVR 2 Sales Hit 600,000 In First 6 Weeks, Is Beating Performance Of Original PSVR

Sony interactive Entertainment has claimed that PSVR 2 sold around 600,000 units during its first six weeks on sale, putting it ahead of the original PSVR at this early stage in the device’s lifecycle.

The format holder revealed during a business webcast that the PSVR sold 8% fewer units during its first six weeks than its successor, and while it’s still early days yet, it seems PSVR 2 is at least off to a promising start. Analysts had previously pegged the device at 270,000 units sold by the end of March 2023, so it’s done better than predicted .
