HTC Vive sales vs Oculus Rift

Both the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift are out. HTC Vive has close to ±95,000 installs (according to SteamSpy), This is an estimation that was done based on the games bundled with the headset. So the site calculated the total number of HTC Vive owners that plays these games, which results in a proximity figure, somewhere around 95K. This is an excellent number considering its high price and the fact that it was launched about three months ago (April 5th).

Anyone knows how many Oculus Rift sold compared to HTC Vive?

bump, but I’ll look into it.

Only thing that I found at the moment is an estimation of five million units in 2016. This is according to a prediction made by Suisse. That being said, there is an article from March 21, 2016 that said that Oculus Rift will sell half of what experts predicted. If you read the article, it mentioned something around 500,00 to 1 million, where 500K seems more reasonable to be honest.

Just to keep you informed, Oculus sold more than 175m000 Rift development kits, so I don’t even know if those numebrs are included or not, but I believe they do.
