Latest PSVR Exclusive Looks Like Its Release Was a Disappointment

The PlayStation VR exclusive Moss: Book II looks like its release could have been a disappointment, judging by the number of players owning the game on the PSN tracking site.

PSNProfiles, a site that tracks user trophy information, lists Moss: Book 2 since there are only 101 game owners in two warps of the game.

By comparison, Weird West, the game released on the same day as Moss: Book II, has over 700 owners.

It’s worth noting that PSNProfiles is a service of choice. It is currently not possible to clear the entire PSN, so every account that is tracked on the site does so voluntarily, meaning that actual sales of the game will be much higher.

However, the PlayStation podcast sacred symbols (paywalled) notes that the first game, Moss, has over 20,000 owners in both versions.

Moss: Book II is a PlayStation VR exclusive headset that is only supported on the PlayStation 5 via an adapter that users can order from Sony.

Moss: Book II was positively received by critics, with a score of 84 on the review aggregator. Metacritic. However, there are only 29 reviews about the game.

During the recent interview, Polyarc Studio co-founder and art director Chris Alderson said he wants the game to come to other platforms “as soon as possible”.

The original Moss was a PlayStation VR exclusive for about 5 months.

In 2020, Sony announced that the PSVR has sold over 5 million units.

The next hardware, PSVR 2, was unveiled by Sony last year, however a release date is currently unknown.
