Facebook's Oculus Rift saw strong performance during the holiday season as Amazon sold out of units and Steam reported higher numbers in Rift users, but the numbers don't suggest a sustainable VR boom.
Rumors point to Iribe disagreeing with Oculus' future vision, but the company did stress to GameDaily, "PC VR is still a category we are investing in. It's still a part of our strategy."
But the battle over the Oculus settlement isn't over.
'Realistically, we are going to wind up competing with the Nintendo Switch,' John Carmack said in a keynote address this week.
Oculus Quest looks great for VR 1.0, but the real inflection point is yet to come, says Tim Merel, who believes it'll be a few more years before a standalone VR installed base can hit 10M.
That brings the Oculus office spend to $106 million over the last three years.
