Other top selling VR titles at the platinum level include Fallout 4, Gorn, Orbus, H3VR, Pavlov, Skyrim (which released on PC in 2018 but appeared on PSVR in 2017), Superhot, Job Simulator, Onward, Arizona Sunshine and one title intended for adults only.
The gold tier of titles includes Budget Cuts, Raw Data, Virtual Desktop, Stand Out, Tilt Brush, Sprint Vector, Sairento, Zero Caliber, I Expect You To Die, Space Pirate Trainerand Doom VFR.
