Bloomberg Reveals Sales Figures, It’s a Trade Failure

Bloomberg Reveals Sales Figures Its a Trade Failure

Released on February 23, 2022, the PlayStation VR 2 would, unsurprisingly, be a commercial failure. It is Bloomberg which announces the news, figures in support, explaining in fact that the new virtual reality headset from Sony has sold only 270,000 copies in the space of a month of operation. We are therefore a long way from the objectives desired by Sony Interactive Entertainment, which had expected 2 million headsets sold in the first weeks of marketing. However, it’s important to take Takashi Mochizuki’s revelations with caution, as the last time he reported that PSVR 2 pre-orders were disappointing, the reporter was picked up by Sony Interactive Entertainment who denied the facts. Following the intervention of the Japanese manufacturer, Bloomberg had reiterated to hold very concrete figures. Takashi Mochizuki says he got his numbers from a study conducted byar IDC, which is based on data collected on the market. Of course, we will have to wait for official figures from Sony, but if we have any news from the Japanese manufacturer on the number of sales, we can decide that disappointment is in order.

If these figures are real, it is a big disappointment on the part of Sony, which would have overestimated the desires of consumers, as well as their wallets. It must be said that with a price of 600€, acquiring the PSVR 2 is obviously not given to everyone, even if we readily admit that for the on-board technology, the Sony helmet is quite accessible if we come back at the price/quality ratio. But in the current economic climate and this unprecedented crisis that we are going through, it is more difficult for consumers to invest in a new virtual reality headset, when it is not even backward compatible with the first and its games. There remains an effective solution for the Japanese manufacturer: lower the price of its product to achieve the objectives. It remains to be seen whether the general public’s interest in VR has not disappeared over time either. When you see how Meta is a total failure, there is reason to ask questions…
