Gamers show no interest in VR in 2016

VR is one of the top trends of games industry as of today. Gamers can already choose from a variety platforms: Oculus Rift, Vive and PlayStation VR. Still there appears to be little demand – out of 13,000 respondents who answered, only 15 percent actually said they intend to get their VR headset this year, with 60 percent flat-out saying they would not consider a purchase.

Price might be the case, ranked most important by almost 32 percent of gamers. Gamers will have to spend $600 and $800 for the Oculus Rift and Vive, respectively. PlayStation VR’s price is yet to be discovered.

It worth mentioning that 75 percent of respondents were the ones owning a gaming PC, who are said to be the target audience of VR-oriented companies.
