The PlayStation VR2 sold significantly better than its predecessor in the weeks following its release. Sony disclosed (PDF) during a business presentation that it sold nearly 600,000 PS VR2 units in its first six weeks of availability. That is approximately 8 percent more than PS VR sales during the same time frame. As noted by PushSquare, this number only reflects sales through the beginning of April, so Sony has likely already surpassed the 600,000 mark, especially since the headgear is now accessible at retailers following two months of exclusive availability on Sony’s website.

In addition to announcing the successful launch of PS VR2, Sony has also revealed its future intentions. Over the next few years, it appears that the company will invest a growing amount of capital into the development of new PlayStation franchises. By the end of the fiscal year 2025, PlayStation Studios’ investments will be divided evenly between existing and new IPs. In recent years, it has primarily focused on well-known console franchises, such as God of War and Horizon, according to the graph it presented. In 2019, for example, only 20% of its investments were allocated to the development of new properties. Forty percent of PlayStation Studios’ investments for the fiscal year 2023 will be allocated to new franchises, which is a slight shift from the previous year.

Sony plans to increase its investment in live service titles such as Destiny 2 and MLB: The Show. By the fiscal year 2025, the company anticipates allocating 60 percent of its PS5 investments to live services and 40 percent to traditional games. Additionally, the company anticipates that sales of add-on or downloadable content will continue to increase in the future. Sony has also disclosed that it anticipates the PS5 will shortly surpass the PS4 in all critical metrics. It is anticipated that by February 2024, the PS5 will have more monthly active users playing more hours on the newer console. Notably, Sony sold more PS5 consoles than anticipated in the fiscal year 2022 after resolving its supply chain crisis and releasing additional consoles.
