Analysis from data tracker GfK has revealed that the PlayStation VR is set set to overtake the combines sales of both Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive in the UK. While no official sales figures have been revealed, the findings aren’t surprising – the PlayStation VR headset is the cheapest VR device of the three, and doesn’t require high-spec hardware to work.
“Early UK sales of PlayStation VR indicate it is already approaching the combined installed base of HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. Initial PlayStation VR game sales are also positive with eight or nine boxed releases featuring in the Official UK Top 40 games chart (week ending Saturday 15th October 2016),” said GfK director Paul Simpson.
With the price of the PS4 also reduced thanks to the PS4 Slim, sales are only going to get better for the PlayStation VR. Christmas will also give the VR headset a good boost.
