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.

I have gotten the survey twice since I've gotten my G2 and neither time has the survey detected it despite it being connected. The second time I even had it on and nope. Instead it detects only my Quest 2 which wasn't even hooked up...but the Oculus software was installed. I don't have much faith in the accuracy of these surveys.

So that's why the Quest 2 is dominating, lol

Also bit the bullet today - cancelled my EVGA XC3 3090 from at local shop and was about to buy the Asus RTX 3090 ROG Strix Gaming card, which was in stock ($500 cheaper than MSI Suprim X which costs $3320 over here, which also is in stock) - but now after putting the kids to bed, all cards are gone 😬 Well, shop says they'll have new stock in 3 weeks, maybe that wait is worth $500, lol. Will need a new rig for that too, but let's get the card first.

As long as it happens equally for all hmds it might not be a problem, lol - but it does make you wonder..

Yeah I wasn't really thinking about any particular headset... just under-reporting of headsets connected in general means the figures for VR use may be even better.

It's a CONSPIRACYYYYYYYYYYY!!! 😯

 

There are probably 10 times more Rifts and Rift Ss out there!!!!!!!!!!one1one!!! Bloody Valve sabotage, that's what that is! 😁😎

 

You also have to remember that Quest 2s connected wirelessly via Visual Desktop also aren't detected!

I've done the survey several times but it's the first time I checked what was reported. Ah well, as long as it's not taken too seriously.
