Sales numbers are in for the first generation of VR headsets as 2016 comes to a close. With sales figures in, who wins most VR headset sales for 2016?

Despite PSVR only arriving in October of this year, PSVR is clearly ahead of the other big players the HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift. Sony has sold 745,000 units since its launch in October, followed in a distant second by the HTC Vive with 420,000 units, with the Oculus Rift in third with 355,000 units.

Half of Americans do not know or care about VR

Despite many media outlets (including this one) specializing in Virtual Reality. It may come as a surprise that over half of Americans has never heard or do not care about virtual reality.

Clearly, Virtual Reality is far from mainstream and has lots of opportunity for growth.
