SONY EXPECTS 130 MORE PSVR GAMES THIS YEAR

Following the success of its VR headset, Sony says it expects 130 games to be released for PSVR by the end of 2018.

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

Sony attributes the headset's success to dropping the price of the peripheral.

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; its inclusion in this news seems like a sure indicator that we can see more non-game content heading to the PSVR as well.

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.
