In the realm of mixed reality (MR) technology, two major players have recently released their latest headsets, sparking discussions among enthusiasts and industry experts. Meta Quest 3 and Apple Vision Pro represent significant advancements in immersive experiences, each with its own features and innovations. Let’s take a closer look at the numbers behind their launches to understand their initial market performance and consumer interest.

Meta Quest, previously Oculus, has been a leading force in the MR market, consistently pushing boundaries. The Meta Quest 3, the latest in the Quest series, arrived amid anticipation. While official preorder figures are unavailable, we can estimate sales by looking at the number of players who own the bundled game “First Encounters.” Around 590,000 Meta Quest 3 headsets have been sold over the past three months, indicating steady demand.

In a surprising move, Apple entered the MR arena with the Apple Vision Pro headset, leveraging its reputation for innovation and design. Initial sales were promising, with 200,000 units sold within the first ten days, suggesting strong interest from consumers.

When comparing the launch performance of Meta Quest 3 and Apple Vision Pro, several factors come into play:

  1. Sales Figures: Meta Quest 3 has sold approximately 590k over three months, while Apple Vision Pro sold 200,000 units in its first ten days. While Meta Quest 3 boasts a larger cumulative sales figure over a more extended period, Apple Vision Pro’s impressive early sales demonstrate the power of Apple’s brand and its ability to attract consumers to new product categories. Considering the Vision Pro is only available in the US, this number is impressive and outmatches the Quest 3 performance comparatively.
  2. Market Presence: Meta Quest has a strong foothold in the MR market with a loyal user base and robust content ecosystem. Apple’s entry with Vision Pro brings its brand recognition and potential appeal to a broader audience.
  3. Technology and Features: Both headsets offer advanced technology and immersive experiences. Meta Quest 3 focuses on wireless freedom and a diverse library of games, while Apple Vision Pro emphasizes high-resolution displays and integration with Apple’s ecosystem.

The launches of Meta Quest 3 and Apple Vision Pro mark milestones in MR technology. While Meta Quest 3 demonstrates consistent sales and a dedicated user base, Apple’s Vision Pro presents a new contender with promising early sales that look to outmatch the Quest 3.

As the MR landscape evolves, competition between Meta and Apple will likely drive further innovation, benefiting consumers and expanding possibilities in mixed reality.
