It's Really Hard to Make Money With Virtual Reality Games

Considering the high profile of the launch we're talking about 2,300 is an awfully low number, even factoring in some of the criticisms of Light Repair Team #4 and its sparse marketing. That speaks to another problem facing virtual reality development: Even after the release of all the major headsets, many Americans don't even know about it. In fact, according to a new study from Parks Associates, 63 percent of Americans are either unfamiliar with or know nothing about virtual reality, and only around 6 percent of men and 2.5 percent of women have any interest in buying a headset. In those conditions, even the best games likely have trouble making a profit.
