Analysts believe that HTC Vive will be sold worse than PlayStation Oculus Rift and VR in the next year
Experts believe that the high price of virtual reality helmet HTC Vive will lead to the fact that it will significantly give for the supply of its main competitors in the face of Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR as this year and next.
Recall the recommended retail prices of the devices:
- HTC Vive — $799
- Oculus Rift — $499
- PlayStation VR — $399
Delivery PlayStation VR, which was released in October, until the end of the year should exceed 1.5 million units. Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, which was released in the spring, should set the score at 650 and 450 thousand units, respectively. The HTC Vive will account for only 12% of the turnover HTC this year.
We will remind, yesterday we wrote that HTC may sell its business of producing smartphones.
