August results of the Steam Hardware & Software Survey show that virtual reality headset sales have stagnated. In August the amount of users with a virtual reality headset has not changed.
The latest Steam Hardware & Software Survey report show that only 0.18% of all Steam users currently own an HTC Vive headset. 0.10% of all Steam users own an Oculus Rift headset, a 0.01% increase from last month.
The new statistics indicate that players may be waiting for the virtual reality headsets to drop in price. At the time of writing the HTC Vive is available for €899,00 and the Oculus Rift is available for €699,00.
Every month Steam gathers information from users that have allowed their specifications to be shared anonymously. Once processed Valve publishes their calculated graphs on a special Steam Store page accessible to all.
