The first Steam hardware survey of 2018 is in, and it exhibits Oculus Rift and HTC Vive use at virtually a tie.
This month sees HTC Vive as 46.96% (a zero.three% lower from final month’s 47.26%) of the general utilization, whereas Rift is at 46.09% (a zero.05% lower from 46.14% in December). Steam designates HTC Vive at this month’s most-used headset after the Rift took the highest spot for the primary time in December. That stated, this chart exhibits that Rift and Vive utilization on Steam is nearly neck-and-neck proper now.
Explaining the slight drops on each the Rift and Vive’s aspect, Microsoft’s Windows ‘Mixed Reality’ headsets grew from four.35% to five.17%. As all the time, that is an non-compulsory survey and headsets need to be plugged into Steam when it takes place to rely, so it’s not a definitive means of telling whether or not the Rift or Vive has bought extra.
Now that we’re a month into 2018 we’ve got a little bit of a greater concept of what the VR panorama seems to be like for the yr. Most notably, HTC is about to launch its upgraded Vive, the Vive Pro, as a single headset inside the subsequent two months and then as a full package deal with new trackers later within the yr. Will the upgraded specs assist Vive get forward within the survey?
