We experienced Windows Mixed Reality. Results: Well, mixed


Re: Doomed to fail (again)

Hmmm, I too am unconvinced about VR generally, but sales of the top two top platforms are pretty good IMHO:

Sales to mid 2017 according to WSJ:

Samsung Gear VR (cheaper) - 8m units - launched Nov 2015

Playstation VR (expensive) - 1.8m units - launched Oct 2017

Oculus Rift (expensive) - 383k units - launched Mar 2017

All systems enable you to "see" your controller while the headset is on BTW.

Oculus is indeed clearly a flop but IMHO PSVR/Gear seem to be doing fine.

Doesn't mean VR will conquer the world of course.
