As reported by Kotaku (via 4Gamer) the hardware sales for Japan were revealed for the week of October 10th until October 16th. Sony’s PlayStation VR sold more than 20,000 units than the PS4 itself. Check out the list below.

  • PS VR: 51,644 units
  • PS4: 30,154
  • New 3DS XL: 15,905
  • Vita: 8,772

  • Xbox One: 323
  • 3DS XL: 71

Japanese people lined up for many hours during the launch of Sony’s new VR device. Worldwide, retailers are running short with shipments coming later in November and December.

Sony should be happy with the reception that the PSVR has had so far. The majority of people that have used it like the technology and like what it offers.

There are a few issues that doesn’t make it perfect for everyone. Some games cause more motion sickness than others, while there are other issues such as head tracking and more. Still, the issues are’t big enough to make the PSVR totally unplayable.
