Samsung Gear VR the winner of VR wars?
It appears that in the increasingly competitive VR market the Samsung Gear VR (based on Oculus Rift technology but adapted for Samsung phones which power it) did very, very well compared to other devices last year (2016).
According to this article here in MCV, which presents work from SuperData, the device shipped more units last year, substantially too, compared to the other usual suspects (please read the full article for numbers involved).
I have personally really rated the Gear VR device and perhaps this piece of information does show the way forward for virtual reality in 2017 (and even past that) with all the characteristics attached to this specific piece of hardware such as, most notably, considerable cost-efficiency.
