More than $100 million has been spent in the Oculus Store

During the opening keynote for Oculus Connect 6, Zuckerberg revealed that the Oculus Store has seen more than $100 million in purchases.


Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg kicked off Oculus Connect 6 with quite a few interesting statements and announcements. While we saw some announcements of new features coming to the newest Oculus headset, Zuckerberg also revealed that over $100 million has been spent on the Oculus Store, with 20% of that having come from purchases on the Oculus Quest alone.

An exact breakdown of the purchases wasn't shared during the keynote, however Zuckerberg and others at Facebook and Oculus believe that this is a key sign that the Oculus ecosystem is alive and healthy and that there is a passion and commitment from the developers and content creators that help stock the virtual shelves of the Oculus Store with new applications and experiences.

The first keynote of Oculus Connect 6 was an interesting one as well, as we saw quite a few announcements coming out of the virtual reality developer. These developments include hand tracking for the Oculus Quest, which is set to arrive sometime in early 2020. There was also the announcement of Facebook Horizon, a completely new service that will allow creators and consumers to band together to create, share, and take part in a large virtual world focused around social activities.
