GDC 2020 Survey: Oculus VR Headsets Dominate Developer Interest

UploadVR

The newest survey of game developers conducted in connection with the Game Developers Conference (GDC 2020) reveals a sea change in VR developer interest. In previous years HTC Vive dominated the survey results but Facebook’s Oculus Quest is dominating this year alongside Valve Index and Rift. The key question on the survey — Which VR/AR platform(s) most interest you as a developer right now?

Steam Hardware Survey Revamped, Will Be Reliable Estimate Of PC VR Headset Ownership

UploadVR

Valve revamped the VR section of the Steam Hardware Survey to support all PC VR headsets. The Steam Hardware Survey is offered randomly to a portion of Steam users each month. UploadVR has been collecting the VR headset data reported by this survey for years now. Because Facebook and HTC don’t release sales figures, the survey is actually the most reliable publicly available indicator of PC VR headset sales.

Valve Revamps Steam Survey to More Accurately Count VR Headsets

Road to VR

Valve’s long running Steam Survey has been one of the most transparent data sources for gauging which VR headsets are the most used. Although Steam represents just one of several major VR platforms, it’s the only one of the bunch that transparently presents data about which VR headsets users are using via the Steam Survey which collects data about hardware used by the Steam population. Our last major analysis of the Survey data is here.

Corrected December Steam Hardware Survey Shows Large Oculus Rift S Growth

UploadVR

At the start of this month, we reported that the December Steam Hardware Survey seemed to be anomalous. On further inspection, the likely cause was clear: the number of Chinese users on the Hardware Survey has increased by more than any other month this year. It is possible that the Hardware Survey is registering Oculus Quest headsets as Rift S, since this is how SteamVR sees Quest in Link mode.

Rift Loses More Ground To Vive In November Steam Hardware Survey

The Oculus Rift’s lead over the HTC Vive family of VR headsets in Steam’s monthly hardware survey is now the smallest it’s been in some time. The recent introduction of HTC’s enhanced Vive Pro headset to the survey has proved troubling for Rift’s perceived majority market share. As always, we must remind you that Steam’s Hardware Survey isn’t a definitive means of tracking the actual sales of VR headsets in relation to others.
