PlayStation Store Rating: 3/5 Stars

It appears that titles offering demos have done particularly well, such as Job Simulator, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood and PlayStation VR Worlds, and the public’s desire to ‘be the Batman’ was never in doubt. It’s likely that pricing has played a significant role, with several less expensive titles making the top ten, and many $50+ titles like Battlezone and RIGS missing out. Indeed, seven games in the list are priced below $20, a typical ‘impulse buy’ limit. The outstanding (but not surprising) success could be EVE: Valkyrie, one of the most expensive VR games ($70) at #7. CCP Games deserve special mention, having managed a double hit, with Gunjack (another EVE-themed game) at #8.

As a rough gauge for how PSVR games are selling compared to the broader PlayStation game decosystem, we can look to the ‘Popular’ list on the PlayStation Store, which puts the top PSVR download (Job Simulator) in the #27 slot, right next to Destiny The Collection. When you sort by digital-only games however (those which are not sold on physical discs and can only be downloaded from the PlayStation Store), the gap closes significantly, with Job Simulator in the #5 slot. We don’t know exactly what metric PlayStation’s ‘Popular’ list is based on, but this suggests that PSVR games are doing well against the broader backdrop of all PS4 games. Given Sony’s 40+ million PS4 install base compared to a much smaller PSVR install base, that’s good news.

That said, with the fairly small selection of PSVR games currently available, and only one month of data, it would be unwise to over-analyse at this stage. The VR medium as a whole is still finding its feet, and certainly the pricing of content (considering the vast differences in scope and length) is up for debate. PSVR appears to be off to a good start, but the figures after the holiday season will tell the true story.

    A bit premature since there are like 19 games. maybe a top 5 would have made more sense or a top 10 when there are 50 games available.
