Steam Hardware Survey - June 2021 results included

Latest results:

These results are compared, at least for the Rift, to August when Rift peaked at 0.35 %. Since August 2018 Rift has decreased about 6 % (from 0.35 to 0.33). Vive also decreased.  

Compared to other HMDs we see from April to September (note that this image hasn't been updated to October yet):

When updated to October I'd expect:

Rift = 45 %
Vive = 42 %
WMR = 8 %
Vive Pro = 3 %
Rift DK2 = 1 %

BTW - some history:

April 2018:

Oculus Rift 0.20%
HTC Vive 0.18%
Windows Mixed Reality 0.01%
Oculus Rift DK2 0.01%
Oculus Rift DK1 0.00%
Unknown 0.00%


July 2018:

Oculus Rift 0.32%
HTC Vive 0.31%
Windows Mixed Reality 0.05%
HTC Vive Pro 0.01%
Oculus Rift DK2 0.01%
Oculus Rift DK1 0.00%

I guess it's more or less a stand still since July for Rift and the original Vive... I don't think the Odyssey+ has had any impact on the WMR results above, the Odyssey+ is much too new - if it'll have any impact, it won't be before the Steam Hardware Survey November 2018 results.

If you take away the drops in Quest, Rift S, and Rift CV1 from that Quest 2 number it is fairly minimal gain for the month. That would be of course assuming the aforementioned users moved over to Quest 2 which we do not know. Will be curious to see how Vive Pro 2 fits in later on. I expect it will be fairly small.

So that's 60.18% of the VR headsets on Steam being Oculus headsets. Pretty impressive.

 


Yep! Oculus headsets continue to "gain Steam" on Steam, while the competitor headsets continue to... lose Steam?

Original Vive still finding its way into people hands is quite a feat at this point. lol

Nice find, btw I just asked No Man's Sky devs to add native Oculus driver support. It's very annoying that they do not offer proper driver support for possibly the majority of their VR users, especially for such an extremely demanding game.

About 20 days late, RoadToVR is now ready with their take on the June results:

I would imagine with more and more folks getting vaccinated now there are a lot of people just getting out more now which means less time for PC-VR gaming. It is the summer after all, and with restrictions being lifted.

Plus some have just managed to grab a PS5 today and are about to connect their PSVR up to it and never come out of NMS ever again until they have visted every planet once. 😃

Gamers may have taken advantage of the summer software sale and picked up a few pancake games... a lot of VR gamers still do pancake and there have been precious few VR titles just lately.

 

It still seems like too big a fall to me though, even with Covid rule lifting, I wouldn't rule out an error.

Intel 5820K OC@4Ghz, Titan X (Maxwell), 32GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4, ASRock X99 Taichi, Samsung 500Gb 960 Evo M.2, Corsair H100i v2 Cooler, Inateck KTU3FR-4P USB 3 card, Windows 10 Pro v20H2 (19043.1081)

Would make sense, even I fell into a pancake and have been quite impressed with some levels and the graphics, namely in Death Stranding with DLSS. The Steam sale did indeed have many attractive pancakes, and as mentioned we also saw a decrease last year probably due to the summer.

Falling into a pancake is something I just can not do. None reside on my drives any longer, have not since getting into VR. Just not the same to me anymore.
