In an exclusive interview with the New York Times, House revealed that Sony is well on track to beat its internal goal of one million headsets sold by mid-April – six months on from the PS VR’s initial launch.
He said that by April supply of the headsets will improve and that Sony expects to start selling the device in Latin America by the autumn.
“You literally have people lining up outside stores when they know stock is being replenished,” he said in reference to sales in Japan.
Speaking at MIPCOM last October, Sony CEO Kazuo Hirai said that the company has committed to making a variety of content “beyond gaming”, claiming that Sony is well positioned to set trends in virtual reality.
Earlier this month Sony added 3D movie support to PlayStation VR in the latest software update for its PlayStation 4 games console.
