15 Things You Need To Know About PlayStation VR

The common sentiment has been that virtual reality’s best chance at mainstream success comes with Sony’s PlayStation VR, which will go on sale in October this year. Unlike other high end VR headsets, PlayStation VR is not obscenely expensive, and nor does it require a super high end PC to function, which most households do not own.

And, judging by remarks that GameStop made during a recent financial call (via DualShockers), it appears as though that expectation may be right- it appears as though Sony may have a hit on their hands here. GameStop claim that the last time the PlayStation VR was put up for pre-order, the entire allocation was sold out in literally five minutes, which is apparently the quickest sellout in GameStop history. As a result of this tremendous demand, GameStop expects there to be very constrained supply of the headset going into this Holiday.

I do expect the PlayStation VR to sell great to begin with, at least- even the PlayStation Vita and Wii U did at first, after all. But the main question in my mind is, will it be able to sustain that level of sales performance going forward? That is something I am truly interested in finding out.

    AAAAAAH ha ha ha ha ha ……. Biggest sellout my @$$ ! What ? They jade 25 to 50 in selected stores ?…. And 10-20 in the rest … Everyone knows Sony has stake in “Gamestop” … Give me a break
    “Save the PlayStation” campaign continues… PATHETIC.

      Good so I’m not the only one feel that way.

      This VR is going to flop. If people dont like the kinect there is no way people will flock into this.

      People spend money on a setup with hdtv, speakers, and what ever they did to get a nice setup just to strap your face with that?


    • Marc Grierson

      This is absolutely nothing like Kinect what are talking about xD

      Kinect was a camera, this is being in the game!! Who bought a TV just for gaming? Certainly not me, I don’t know if you’ve heard but you can watch TV on a TV also lol.

      Be sceptical, fair enough but those 2 points are shockingly bad.

    • Doggystyle

      LOL. Theses fools bought an Xbox to watch TV on their already smart TV. Hilariousness. They’re beyond jealous. Its okay Mark.

  • kma99

    They were allotted 2 to 3 per store at the most. Of course it will sell out.

  • Doggystyle

    I just preordered two PSVR games today to go along with my new headset. October will be so sweet.

    • Marc Grierson

      What did you go for? I’ve pre-ordered Rigs and Batman lol, edging toward Eve as well!

    • Doggystyle

      Batman and VR Worlds. Now I’m waiting for Driveclub VR to get a listing on Amazon.

    • kee1haul

      Amazon doesn’t like you.

    • Doggystyle

      Your mom does. Is that how you wanted me to respond to your silly comment little boy? Beat it.

    • kee1haul

      Have a free upvote. Even your mother wouldn’t bother with that.

    • Doggystyle

      LOL. Wow. I don’t know if I can accept this award. You were the real star here.

  • JuneMas

    Limited quantities at stores plus resellers awaiting poor holidays equals articles like this.

  • kee1haul

    Where are the numbers??? Sony love giving out numbers of how popular they are. I smell a rat.

  • Doggystyle

    When this thing hits the market…..BOOM! Sh*t is gonna blow up.

    • Trim Dose

      hope doesn’t blow up in our heads, that would be bad press for Sony, lol.

    • Doggystyle

      You’re right. That wouldn’t be good.
