VR is far from being Mainstream, what's with the hot take?The Quest 2 has appeared to have sold millions this past holiday season. I got a quest 2 last christmas and it really is an incredible device.
The Quest 2 companion app Oculus reached #1 in the Apple Playstore Xmas day and the Day after. Steam saw record VR growth with nearly 40% of users using the Quest 2 on it's platform. All you have to do is google meta Quest 2 holiday numbers and you will see the hype it's getting.
I'm happy to see this thing catch fire and hopefully attracts more big name publishers. While there are a decent library of games to play, there are few "blockbuster" titles. Resident Evil 4 on the Quest 2 has shown that old classics can be remade anew and feel totally awesome. Doom 3 is another example how an older game can feel totally new (and creepy). Publishers can make money on porting over old titles and making new ones for a much lower budget than other platforms.
Zuckerberg is also building a Ready Player One type metaverse that could be interesting as well. VR is hitting primetime baby!
