There's a selection of around 340 PSVR games to choose from, and plenty more to come, so if you haven't yet taken the plunge, now's a great time to do so.

Sony announced this week that it has now sold over 3 million PlayStation VR systems and about 22 million PS VR games and apps. "Deracine" was one of the titles that Sony touted at E3 in June. Citing TrendForce data from July, Statista said Sony shipped about 1.7 million PS VR units in 2017 and another 2 million globally in the first half of 2018 for a total of about 3.7 million.

The company also revealed that 21.9 million PlayStation VR titles have been sold, at retail and via the PS Store, which is also an impressive feat.

IDC recently projected that VR headset sales will soar from 8.1 million in 2018 to 39.2 million by the end of 2022, representing a five-year compound annual growth of 48.1%. To celebrate the milestone Sony is announcing the launch of a pair of new PS VR games that will land this fall.

Finally, Sony also today released a Top 10 list of the most-played PlayStation VR games to date.

The PlayStation VR version of Creed: Rise to Glory will launch on 25th September 2018, for $29.99 Dollars.

The gaming giant used the announcement to also tease two new virtual reality games coming out later this year, including boxing game Creed: Rise To Glory, which will place players in the ring and into the gloves of Adonis Creed - son of Apollo Creed of the Rocky Balboa movie franchise.

The PlayStation VR headset launched back in October 2016, just before the PS4 Pro.

Sony's VR headset was first announced by it in 2014 at the Game Developers Conference, under the codename "Project Morpheus".

And it's not like Sony hasn't made PSVR accessible.
