At the same time, she declared that she had sold 4,2 million PS VR.
Last August, the firm mentioned the sale of 21 million compatible games for 3 million headsets, or seven titles per player. It must be said that at the same time Capcom revealed that more than 600 people had tried Resident Evil 000 in VR.
