During today’s keynote presentation, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced that users have spent over $100 million on content in the Oculus Store, including sales across all Oculus platforms.
Additionally, 20% of those sales represent content specifically available on the Oculus Quest platform. Zuckerberg stated that Oculus are “selling [Quests] as fast as we can make them.” However, he did not confirm any specific sales numbers or units sold with regards to the Quest, Rift, Rift S, or Go devices themselves.
Zuckerberg also assured Quest users that all of the existing and upcoming content will be forward compatible with future versions of the Oculus Quest. He stressed that the goal is to reach a “critical mass” of VR users, and “to get to critical mass, we’re focused on building forward compatibility.”
“If you build something for Quest today,” said Zuckerberg, “our goal is to make it work on all future Quests as well.” He also stated that the platform “is going to dramatically improve.”
The Oculus Quest launched alongside the Oculus Rift S back in May of this year. We were quite impressed upon release with the standalone device and you can read our full review here.
