Newegg drops PlayStation VR price, but only briefly

Though Sony spent a lot of time at E3 2017 focusing on its heavy hitters coming to PS4, it devoted some of its press conference to incoming games for the PlayStation VR as well. Games like Moss, The Inpatient, and Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR definitely have some PS4 owners excited, but considering the PSVR costs as much as a PS4 Pro, that might serve as a barrier to entry for those who would otherwise like to give VR a spin. Newegg seems to have something to say about that, discounting the PSVR today through its eBay store.

PS4 sales are going to slow, Sony warns

PlayStation 4 may have given Sony a welcome nudge upwards in its latest financial results, but the company is warning that sales are likely to slow in the year ahead. Sales in Sony's Game & Network Services division rose 6.3-percent year-on-year, to $14.73bn, an increase which the company says was primarily down to greater sales of PS4 and games for the console. Now, though, the PS4 enters a new stage of its life, Sony warns.

Sony isn’t that interested in phones anymore, looks to VR

Sony isn’t that interested in phones anymore, looks to VR

Sony's smartphone business has always been seen as on the verge of folding. After a brief period of fame, Sony's flagships have mostly failed to secure a foothold in the market, thanks to a combination of high prices and less impressive features. When Sony sold its VAIO PC business to a Japanese company, it was expected it would do the same with its smartphones soon as well. The good news: Sony President Kazuo Hirai thinks that smartphones are still a viable business. The bad news: it really doesn't care that much anymore.

PlayStation VR ‘Aim’ gun controller hits shelves in May

PlayStation VR owners will soon have access to a new ‘Aim’ Controller vaguely shaped like a gun. The new controller will be available starting in May to coincide with the Farpoint virtual reality shooting game that is exclusive to the PS VR.

PlayStation VR sold 915,000 units, surprises even Sony

PlayStation VR sold 915,000 units, surprises even Sony

It’s both amusing and also telling that Sony itself was caught by surprise that its PS VR system did well after all. Although it was definitely singing the virtual reality tune, Sony’s actions spoke louder than its words. Its rollout of the PS VR was more conservative compared to the likes of the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive. It’s caution, however, may have been unwarranted, as it is close to reaching its 1 million sales goal with 2 months to spare.

Numskull launches official PlayStation VR storage stand

Numskull launches official PlayStation VR storage stand

If you count yourself among PlayStation VR's early adopters, you may want to have a look at this new stand Numskull. VR headsets can be tough to store, since the fact that they're made to sit on your head gives them a somewhat bulky and awkward design. Stands like these have been one of the better solutions, but this has the distinction of being officially licensed by Sony.
