Sony Computer Entertainment president Jim Ryan had spoken to CNBC about interest in the PlayStation VR headset being “significant”. He has also stated that going by pre-order and initial sales data, he expects sales to be in the “many hundreds of thousands”.
PlayStation VR is already sold out in Australia with PlayStation Australia urging gamers to pre-order the device now if they want to receive it before Christmas.
A VR report released in March estimated that 2.6 million PlayStation VR units would be sold by the end of 2016. It has this week updated the report to state that demand for PlayStation VR could increase in November once that PlayStation 4 Pro has released.
