PS4 Camera and PS Move Sales Skyrocket In Wake of PSVR Announcement
Looks like people are genuinely excited for the PlayStation VR.
Sony’s PlayStation VR may be extremely cheap – it is currently the cheapest VR solution on the market – but that seems to come with some sacrifices made. You see, while the PlayStation VR requires the PlayStation Camera for the PlayStation 4, and definitely benefits from the PlayStation Move motion controllers, neither of these are included with the package out of the box (though Sony has confirmed that it will have one such bundle available).
This has led to a surge in sales for the PS4 Camera and PlayStation Move controllers- sales of the Camera are up by nearly 1000% on Amazon, with the Camera jumping to the #20 place on the charts. PS Move, meanwhile, has seen a smaller jump of 305%.
Of course, without knowing exactly how much these accessories were selling before, this is a meaningless statistic, but it sounds like Sony genuinely has quite a few people looking forward to the PlayStation VR.
