Sony has finally launched its PlayStation VR headset, but how successful has it been so far? Quite successful according to Sony Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe President and Chief Executive, Jim Ryan, who recently spoke with CNBC about the launch of PSVR.




Ryan said that PSVR launch sales have been in the "many hundreds of thousands", but didn't provide any specific numbers. He did say that interest in PlayStation VR was "significant" based on pre-order data, with the PSVR headset sold out in countless places, with Amazon UK saying they won't have orders caught up until sometime in December.


He also said that protection for PSVR is going well, saying: "We have made decisions to further increase capacity at the back end of 2016 and into 2017, so there are going to be a lot of PlayStation VRs around the world, whether that's enough to satisfy the demands of the market, we'll see".
