Sony Has Sold Over 2 Million PSVR Units Worldwide Since Launch

Posted on December 7th, 2017 by Ziipa

As a testament to the strength of high-quality VR with a relatively low entry price, Sony today announced they’ve sold more than 2 million units to consumers worldwide as of December 3rd, 2017.

The success, Sony says in a press release announcing the figures, is largely due to the number of PlayStation 4s currently in the hands of consumers; a whopping 70.6 million consoles sold to consumers as of December 3rd. This, Sony says, has led to the sale of “more than 617.8 million copies of PS4 games” both at retail stores globally and through digital downloads since it was released in November 2013.

While 2 million is a fairly quaint number in comparison to the 70.6 million PS4s sold, the install base of PSVR has reportedly doubled in the past 6 months. That number derives from an analyst firm SuperData, but if it can be believed, it means that consumers feel confident in the headset’s price, design, and app ecosystem.

Released in October 2016, PSVR has a total of 150 titles to its name—or a little under a tenth of the number of non-VR games currently listed on PSN. Sony says they’ve sold more than 12.2 million copies of PSVR games across retail stores and PSN.

Besides the massive amount of PS4s readily available, much of its success can be owed to the relatively low entry price of the headset, which at its most expensive (assuming you already owned PS Camera and PS Move) cost only $400 at launch. The company has since slashed prices, offering various ‘all-in’ game bundles, which in the case of Skyrim VR, costs $450 regularly. Game bundles not packaged with PS Move, but featuring the headset and PS Camera, now dip as low as $300.

Neither Oculus nor HTC have released solid numbers on cumulative sales to date.

Device makes power conversion more efficient

Posted on December 7th, 2017 by Ziipa

Posted by: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/12/171207154509.htm

Researchers have presented a new design that, in tests, enabled gallium nitride power devices to handle voltages of 1,200 volts. That’s already enough capacity for use in electric vehicles, but the researchers believe that further work can boost its capacity to the 3,300-to-5,000-volt range, to bring the efficiencies of gallium nitride to the power electronics in the electrical grid itself.

Single player Star Wars games are a dream we'd be wise to abandon & History tells us why

Posted on December 7th, 2017 by Ziipa

The recent trouble around Visceral’s cancelled Star Wars game and Battlefront 2’s poor solo outing are part of a trend.

October brought disconcerting news that Electronic Arts had shut down Visceral Games and pivoted” the design of its unnamed Star Wars project from “a story-based, linear adventure game” to something different altogether. As a result, the games media and gamers alike started questioning whether there’s a future for the ambitious, single player centric, story-driven games in the Star Wars canon. The thing is: such games have been a thing of the past for a few years already. Seven years to be exact.
