PlayStation VR launched in October 2016.

Those are actually pretty solid numbers. Should break 6 million before PS5 comes.

I wouldn't call PSVR expensive. You can find bundles all the time for $249, and even lower when they have a sale.

Take into account you have to own a ps4 to play psvr, so it really costs over $500 dollars depending on the type of ps4 you get. $250 is a lot for people after they have bought a console.

PSVR seems to be holding the pace, that is very good. Every time someone says Sony is hiding the numbers or that PSVR is doing bad we soon see it isn't true.

Watch out. LABO VR could easily top those sales!

Considering the big difference in price it should. But considering Labo total is like less than 2M I don't think the VR version will do over 4M.

50% of what Kinect did in its first 60 days in 29 months.
Less than 5% of PS4 users bought it.

Looks like a failure to me.

Hype purchase vs sustained purchase, pretty much the same thing.

Why was he moderated for a comment like that on an article?

This area follows the same rules as the forums so you can get moderation here, as well as on posting on people walls or even PM if it's really out of line.
For reason of moderation I guess it would be better to ask the mod by PM instead of on the comment.
