Only 2 Percent of Steam Users Own VR Headsets

Zack Zwiezen, Kotaku:

Still, even after one of the largest spikes in VR usage in Steam history, less than 2% of Steam users are using HMDs. VR is expensive, not viable for everyone, and relies on powerful PC hardware. Thinking about these factors and looking at these numbers, it makes sense why folks are trying to mod Half-Life: Alyx to make it playable without a VR headset.

Puts some context into Valve’s decision to drop Mac support from SteamVR.
