Rift/Vive Gap Shrinks In June Steam Hardware Survey Results (Sort Of)

We took a month off in Might (forgive us! E3!) however June’s Steam Survey outcomes are in. Put merely, they don’t present a lot change within the general panorama.

The Oculus Rift nonetheless leads the cost with 44.12% of the general VR headset utilization on Steam. Pairing the 40.76% share that HTC Vive has with the 1.66% share of the Vive Professional, HTC is at 42.42%. That’s a distinction of simply 1.7% between the 2 headsets. That’s about half of final month’s distinction of three.82%. Nevertheless it’s not so simple as all of it appears.

We nonetheless don’t know if this month’s outcomes embody the Oculus Rift S in its findings. We’ve reached out to Valve to ask, however given the outcomes group the Vive and Vive Professional in a different way it doesn’t appear doubtless. It even has separate listings for Rift’s DK1 and Dk2 headsets. Equally, we don’t know if these outcomes embody the newly-launched Vive Professional Eye. And, in fact, they clearly don’t embody Valve’s new headset, the Index, which began arriving on folks’s doorways proper on the finish of June.

If Rift S isn’t included, then it’s not shocking to see Vive acquire floor. Oculus stopped promoting the unique Rift months in the past now in preparation for Rift S launch.

Rounding out this month’s outcomes is Home windows VR’s 11.13% share. That’s a modest soar over final month’s 10.99%.

Both method, we’re nonetheless trying ahead to when these headsets are correctly listed (pun supposed) on Steam. The survey is non-compulsory and never a definitive technique of reporting on the VR market share, but it surely’s one of the best we’ve acquired because it stands.
