The number of PlayStation VR games on the market will increase by 80 percent in 2018, PlayStation says.

There are currently about 150 PSVR games out, if you include the handful of not-really-game "experiences" as well.

Sony told Nikkei this figure will rise to 280 by the end of the year.

PlayStation VR launched in October 2016, and more than two million units were sold in its first 12 months – about three percent of the PS4's 70.6 million install base.

Last year the device's line-up was bolstered by Resident Evil VII, Doom VFR, Star Trek: Bridge Crew, and Skyrim VR.

This month, Supermassive Games releases Until Dawn survival horror tie-in The Inpatient onto PSVR, and next month, Kiwi studio RocketWerks's strategy FPS Out of Ammo is out.

Other PSVR games to keep an eye on include Media Molecule's Dreams, Tripwire's Killing Floor: Incursion, Sony's own Wipeout Omega Collection, Supermassive shooter Bravo Team, Polyarc's cute critter adventure Moss, Ace Combat 7, Get Even, The Last Guardian VR, and racer Vector 36, from NZ-based US transplant Ryan McKee.
