You might have observed Oculus Quest is offered out virtually in every single place, and whereas it’s not sure whether or not the corporate’s standalone 6DOF headset is promoting famously, or is just the results of artificially restricted portions to generate hype à la Nintendo, one factor is obvious: Oculus has offered $5 million price of Quest content material within the first two weeks since its Could 21st launch.
As reported by Tech Crunch, VP of AR/VR Andrew Bosworth spoke at Vox Media’s Code convention this week the place he dropped the quantity.
The corporate hasn’t detailed any gross sales knowledge for Quest, nonetheless supposing (giant grain of salt right here) that each consumer who had a Quest in hand throughout the first two weeks no less than plonked down for Beat Saber (2018), which retails on the platform for $30, gross sales numbers for that interval might tally round 166,000 headsets. There’s in fact no approach of understanding how a lot customers spent on common throughout that point, though it’s meals for thought.
Nonetheless you slice it, getting your fingers on Quest remains to be a recreation of procuring round to search out the quickest ship date. On the time of this writing, Oculus straight sells each flavors of Quest with delayed delivery; a week-long look ahead to the $500 128GB model and two weeks for the $400 64GB model. Comparatively, a Rift S will be bought straight from Oculus with little greater than a one-day wait.
Whereas we’d have an interest to know simply what number of Quests are within the wild now, it’s unlikely Fb will announce the quantity till they’re able to toot their very own horn.
