While there are no official figures, data tracker GfK has worked out that PlayStation VR about to sell more units than the combined forces of both Oculus Rift and HTC Vive here in the UK.
“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.
“Our survey shows that initial reactions from owners of PlayStation VR are positive,” he adds. “Some told that the experience surpasses expectations, and for many it is a talking point with their friends. Others believe the VR gaming experience to be a solitary one, but have been pleasantly surprised by social elements of VR gaming.”
This should not come as a surprise keeping in mind that PS has a stable fanbase in UK (around 3.5 million PS4 units sold).
