Even with the newest bundle launched in March of this year that means that PSVR has roped in somewhere in the region of $900m+ for Sony at the very least, and that's just for the Hardware, 22million games sold for the device is nothing to turn your nose up to.

900 million in revenue... which is pretty meaningless without knowing how much each unit actually costs, what r&d cost, marketing costs, etc. They could easily be in the red on this.

I May get one if it lowers its price.

I wish everyone could experience this little beauty of a device. Here's hoping the Ps5 releases with two SKUs, one specifically bundled with VR, even if it's only ten percent of the manufacturing line if it keeps costs down and prompts people going for the upgrade to take the true upgrade. This thing wows me everytime I put ot on.

*Two bundles, not SKUs. I mean all ps5s to be VR ready with no need for a breakout box,it costs them little more to add the extra port but it'd be great if Sony pushed a 500 quid ps5 bundle with a headset if ps5 launches at 400.

Decent numbers for what it is, but VR is not going to be anything other than a niche for a long time. But hey the people with PSVR buy many games for the platform so my guess is that its at least viable enough for Sony to make PSVR 2 for the PS5.

Wow, at over 80 millions of PS4 sold, 3 millions VR - about 4% of all PS4, is disappointing.

For a periphereal which costs as much as the console, needs for the most part dedicated games and is very hard to advertise? Not at all.
This is shown by the fact other PCVR headsets, that are longer on the market already, have an even larger install base and sell much less.

You do realise one gets used to it and the sickness disappears? I never had any sickness to begin with btw. I wish the people who feel the need to comment at least knew what they we're talking about.
