Fb’s Oculus Quest standalone VR headset hasn’t been out lengthy, however VP of AR/VR Andrew Bosworth says the corporate is already promoting a considerable quantity of content material for the system.
At Vox Media’s Code convention, the exec detailed that within the first two weeks of gross sales there was $5 million in content material gross sales. We’ve not gotten any particulars on system gross sales, although Fb has by no means shares gross sales knowledge on their VR merchandise.
The $399 headset doesn’t require a PC or telephone to function and presents camera-based positional monitoring like higher-end PC headsets have up to now. At launch the corporate’s retailer had simply over 50 titles accessible to obtain, with a combination of free titles and video games costing as a lot as $30.
Firms within the VR area — even Fb — have been reticent to debate gross sales as a result of there have been so few success tales. Fb has gone all-in on the Quest’s launch, their advertising campaigns have been substantial so it is sensible that they’re keen to element their successes right here.
