A new record high count for VR connections on Steam was recorded in February – 200k more than the previous record just a month before. The Quest 2 leads the way in PCVR popularity, despite actually being one of the very few standalone headsets. It has been the driving force for much of the growth of Steam VR thanks to its ability to also connect to a PC to play PCVR games.
