2016 has been a great year for gaming and gaming hardware, as we have seen the launch of the slimmer version of Xbox One and PlayStation 4 along with the launch of VR headsets like HTC Vive and PSVR. VR headsets have proven to be quite expensive hardware and their success can only be measured in terms of how many units do gamers have.

The research specialist Superdata has tried to predict that how many virtual reality headsets will be sold by the end of the year. According to the predictions of Superdata, PlayStation VR will have sold 2,602,307 units by the end of 2016.

  • PlayStation VR – 2,602,307
  • Samsung Gear VR – 2,316,632
  • Google Daydream – 450,083
  • HTC Vive – 420,108
  • Oculus Rift – 355,088

Superdata further explained how they worked their analysis. According to the firm, their analysis involved retail checks, executive interviews, pricing data and more.

SuperData’s approach to the market for consumer-centered virtual reality includes retail checks, executive interviews with decision-makers from all of the relevant firms in the marketplace, pricing data, our survey-based consumer tracking panel, and digital content purchases collected from our data providers

The firm further added that to get the final result of their analysis they combine both proprietary and public data sources.

We combine both proprietary and public data sources to arrive at an objective reading of the market, including financial information obtained through our client network.

Sony has jumped into the virtual reality market with PSVR but according to the analyst, the company is splitting its market with so many different products. According to Michael Goodman, Sony has launched its products in such a way that consumers have a hard time deciding what they want, also given that purchasing them together costs a lot.
