According to the most recent report, provided by SuperData, the worldwide market for VR gaming will reach $5.1B in revenues in 2016. The install base will go over 55 million users.

Virtual reality will start bringing some money this year. Over the last couple of years over $6.1B of investment were made in this sector, so it’s high time for the developers to start showing their product.

Today is a special day for VR-technology, as Oculus VR started to accept pre-orders for its Oculus Rift headset. You can say that the whole VR-rush started with Oculus and the campaign on Kickstarter. However Oculus VR is not the first company to start selling its VR-product. In late November Samsung Gear VR went on sale and, according to SuperData, did relatively well. The product sold out in 48 hours!

Oculus Rift could be pre-ordered for $600. For this you get the headset, the Xbox 360 controller, plus two free VR-games. The first shipment will start in March 2016. It’s hard to say if it’s a good deal. Let’s wait and learn the prices on other devices from Sony and HTC.
