Oculus Rift May Have Lost Its Competitive Edge
Meanwhile, Sony, another major player in the VR market announced 915,000 PlayStation VR headsets had been sold by now. It's believed by some analysts that PlayStation VR may have been outselling Oculus Rift by as much as 3:1. Let's not forget HTC, which joined the VR headset war in April 2016 with HTC Vive. The Taiwanese company hasn't yet revealed its sales figures.
CCS Insight, a research group, estimates that 11 million virtual and augmented reality devices were sold in 2016, but only 1.2 million were dedicated VR devices for games. If the number is accurate, it's not hard to estimate how much units were sold by Oculus and HTC. Based on these numbers we can assume that the VR market hasn't grown as fast as the VR developers were expecting.
