Beat Saber Officially Surpasses One Million Copies Sold

Today Beat Games announced that its viral sensation VR game Beat Saber had officially sold one million copies across all platforms including PSVR, Steam, and Oculus Home. The news comes on the same day that its first official pack of paid DLC was released, Music Pack 1 in partnership with Monstercat.

“In February we reached 1M sold copies across all platforms,” said Michaela Dvorak, Head of Marketing at Beat Games in a statement to UploadVR.

After just a month of going on sale it had already sold 100,000 copies and that was just on Steam, so after hitting PSVR as well late last year the jump to over one million isn’t very surprising.

Variety is reporting that Beat Saber may be the first VR game to surpass one million copies, but that’s hard to say for sure. Skyrim VR sold very well for and has been out since late 2017 on PSVR and about a year on PC headsets. At E3 last year Bethesda told us that Skyrim VR, DOOM VFR, and Fallout 4 VR had all sold “really well” so far. We’ve reached out to Bethesda for comment, but a representative replied that they “don’t have any stats or sales numbers to share at this time.”

A big driving force of Beat Saber’s popularity on the PC side is the ability to create custom beat maps for any song they want and even custom sabers. This feature is not supported officially, as evidence by the studio releasing new songs regularly both for free and paid.

Beat Saber actually originates from a mobile game about switching colors and jumping on platforms and at an XRDC session last year, Beat Games CEO Jaroslav Beck talked about the game’s surprise success.

“We didn’t make something for other people,” Beck told UploadVR in an interview. “We made what we wanted to play and what we were passionate about. As a result, the quality shined through. Focusing most of our time on polishing the final 10% of the game is the best decision we made.”

Most of the major brands worldwide are investing in some way in virtual reality.
