Oculus Quest 2 breaks information promoting over 1 million models – KitGuru
While virtual reality is relatively still in its infancy, technology is rapidly evolving and is being picked up by more and more people. Late last year, Facebook released the Oculus Quest 2, a revamped version of the popular standalone VR headset. It seems that the device has made a good start as the headset sold over 1 million units in a quarter, breaking records.
According to SuperData, the Oculus Quest 2 sold 1.098 million units in the fourth quarter of 2020. This corresponds to “more units in a quarter than any VR device that is not operated with a smartphone”.
This is doubly impressive when you consider that Quest 2 didn’t start until October 13th, which means it had a little less than the full 3 months to hit this impressive number.
Second was Sony’s PSVR, which sold 125,000 units in the fourth quarter of 2020. Third place went to Valve’s Index, which sold 61,000 units. In fourth place went the Oculus Rift / Rift S, which sold only 55,000 units.
It’s worth noting, of course, that the Oculus Quest 2 may be the most accessible headset of all due to the relatively low price point and the self-sufficiency of the device. Still, those numbers make an impressive introduction to the VR headset, especially given the fact that the VR market is much smaller than the overall gaming market.
