Sony Expects to Add 130 New PSVR Titles by the End of the Year

 

The PSVR has done so well in 2017 that Sony now says they expect to add 130 games on PSVR by the end of the year.

In a statement to Nikkei (initially translated by Siliconera), Sony says the PSVR's 2 million sales have helped bolster the company's confidence in the product. There are currently 150 titles available for the platform – if all 130 games arrive that would be an 86% increase to 280 PSVR titles by the end of 2018.

Sony attributes the headset's success to dropping the price of the peripheral, which retails for under $300 USD as a standalone unit.

 Sony also notes that PSVR is home to more than just games, citing a forthcoming planetarium application and the ability to watch moves in a 360-degree space. That Sony has included these new applications in their statement on new PSVR games indicates that we will see more non-game content heading to the PSVR as well this year.

With over 70 million PlayStation 4 units sold, the peripheral has a long way to go before it catches up to its big brother – this kind of influx of games could be just the ticket for increasing those sales even further. The new Skyrim VR and DOOM VFR titles will also increase interest in the hardware.
