My Thoughts on this Story: While there is no surefire way to tell why the PSVR has sold so many units the price point has to be a big seller. I think you also have to take into consideration the number of people who own a PS4 to the number of people who own a PC powerful enough to run a VR headset. The PSVR might be a mass of wires, but once it’s set up its easy to use and doesn’t require much afterthought, or indeed play area. I will be a lot more interesting to see how long it takes the Oculus Go to get to the same amount of sales as I suspect it won’t take half the time it did for Sony.
