A lot of PSVR games made the chart. I imagine PSVR has to have sold bonkers in just 3 days for its games to show up on bestseller lists.

This is great news for ALL VR. This is sure to encourage other developers to get on board with PSVR too, along with all the great reviews!

S2Killinit2836d ago

Im looking forward to FarPoint which seems to be a special one. There is a chance its "killer app" status. Here is a look:

I agree. All this VR success encourages more R&D and discoveries toward better hardware and software design, which has already been happening across the gaming industry - such as solving or lessening the "motion sickness" problem. The real next generation of consoles (if there is a PS5) will most certainly implement better HMD design support. If Sony can continue to keep the costs low relative to competitors, then I am on board with their future entries.

My hope as one player in a massive community of passionate gamers, is that everyone can jump in to play and enjoy VR if they choose and that choice will be decided by their own desires and tastes for games and not by a physically limiting barrier.

Congratulations to the Coalition. Nice to see Gears 4 doing great also congrats to Sony on a successful PSVR launch. Great job.

UCForce2837d ago (Edited 2837d ago )

Oh my god ! Thank you, my friend. Unlike other people, you are only Xbox player I respect the most as PlayStation fan. And I'm glad you having fun with GeOW4. It's very good to see an honorable Xbox player I ever meet.

Slowbro2837d ago

Holy crap that spelling and grammar.

G20WLY2836d ago

^Are you slow, bro? I disagree with UCForce here too, but why question his spelling and grammar? Clearly English isn’t his first language. I see no misspelt individual words in his comment, so I have to wonder if the same is true about you?

Now you should go out and get a PSVR so you can play Gears 4 on your XB1. I am not being facetious you actually can do this. See: http://www.playstationlifes... There are also plenty of articles on this.

From the article. Here are just a few of the compatible devices:
Xbox One
Xbox 360
PlayStation 3
Nintendo Wii U
PCs
Blu-ray Players
Cable

@Doctor, yeah but its still better than ms's current offering.

ArchangelMike2837d ago

I'm surprised Rigs isn't higher on that list, it's by far the best of the bunch. Obviously the list doesn't take into account digital sales, which I'm sure would paint a different picture.

UCForce2837d ago (Edited 2837d ago )

Well good new is PSVR is 7th rank which mean the system isn't a gimmick.

Edit : @Kribwalker Well, that's different.

Kribwalker2837d ago

That does not mean the system isn't a gimmick. The only way to tell if it is a gimmick or not is to wait and see what starts coming out in the future. Kinect and PlayStation move and even the Wii all sold, but they all turned gimmicky because of the future software

S2Killinit2837d ago

Its only getting better. All they needed was the sales and they are getting that in spades.

-Foxtrot2837d ago

Well I'm not going against you but the Wii's first year was amazing sales wise...yet that was a gimmick in the end.

Amiga-guy2837d ago

People still don't seem to understand that VR is about far more than gaming, it will continue to develope and grow, with it's reach entering film, medicine education, the list is endless.

VR is no gimmick, for so many reasons.

cyber_daemonx2836d ago (Edited 2836d ago )

@Foxtrot, yeah but VR has more potential than just motion controls. Much more.

@Tyler, Thumper is awesome just on a normal tv. Gonna get Rez as well, love Rez.

I didn't care for rigs too much. I think thumper VR is outstanding though. To each their own.

ArchangelMike2836d ago

Totally. I love Thumper, it was the first VR game I player and fell completely in love with it.

Sharky2312836d ago

I think that's the best part. People are enjoying a wide range of vr games. Didn't see batman on the list. That was a great game or experience!

IamTylerDurden12836d ago

Thumper is amazing, but Rigs is a real game. Rigs is the real deal.

Congratulations to Driveclub VR, it's a dream to play and it's loaded with content. It's my go-to VR game.

jwillj2k42836d ago

@IamTylerDurden1

Thumper pulls you in and makes you feel like you are traveling at an insane velocity in the dark void of space time. You're battling entities that make you feel like you have no business being there. You lose track of your surroundings and hours fly by while you're narrowly escaping death at every turn. It's going to run even faster on the pro which seems impossible.

It 100% is a "real game". Goty imo.

I'm only buying digital for PSVR. You need a seamless transition between game's and experiences. Imagine having to change a disc everytime?. Time to upgrade to a 2TB HD! .

nitus102836d ago

The Playstation lets you change your disk easily without voiding your warranty.

MasterCornholio2836d ago (Edited 2836d ago )

@Doctor

Only the external storage but not the internal.

Had to correct you because I don't want people replacing the internal HDDs and voiding the warranty as a result of that.

ChronoJoe2836d ago

The demo for rigs isn't that great and its also quite expensive compared to some of the other options. I think Rigs, Battlezone and Rez are the best VR games but I'm actually enjoying Driveclub too.

NonShinyGoose2836d ago

Yeah, Batman VR is digital only. I expect that has sold well.

Sony will surely support the system with how well it's been doing in just 3 days.
