    Probably complete bollocks given the sauce tbh.

    A bit weird that they haven't included the Vive Pro, Rift S and the Valve Index though.

    I understand your skepticism of Superdata - I share some of it, if not as passionately.
    But it is possible to extricate the units form the game sales from recent discussions at OC6 - this article may be more virtuous:

    https://arinsider.co/2019/09/30/has-oculus-sold-333000-quests-so-far/?fbclid=IwAR0Vd-8AUXQid0ziG4g3kEFWaVS64HOmQcomsSroHJ43XkgBoEvz3nsY09E

    And other sources are jumping in with more information from the paid report, including your requested Valve number:

    Might be a bit more to this - and very interesting if true.

    Please don't. There is no discussion other than Superdata stats are complete tripe.

    Yea these numbers seem a bit weird o.o without even really diving into them.

    We should make our own Ultramegadata.
    (Both Ultradata and Megadata were already taken)

    Ps4 numbers and CV1 do seem realistic though, also corresponding to official numbers from Sony claiming 4.2 mill sold PSVR hmds in March 2019.
    Intel i7 7700K (4.5 GHz); MSI GeForce GTX 1080 8GB Gaming X (oc 2100 MHz gpu boost, 11 GHz mem speed); 16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200 MHz; MSI Z270I Gaming Pro Carbon AC (VR-Ready) mainboard; Samsung 960 Evo M.2 SSD + Toshiba P300 HD; Windows 10 OS; Valve Index and Oculus Rift CV1 - the latter nearly always using super sampling 2.0.

    That is always the problem with Superdata numbers - that are interspersed with some plausible statistics. We knew that the Index was low bar, so 48,000 is plausible. We knew the Sony reveal numbers, though by now they must be 5m. And thanks to that extrapolation from the OC6 statement many were looking at a 390,000 speculation on Quest. The full shelves at BestBuy and the calling out of the Amazon claim lead many to consider a slowing, and over these three months no one still expected the "million by the end of the year" rumored claim. But as we never got confirmation on the CV1 sales issues or Go all we are left with is extrapolation from disparate sources, (just how they like it!)
