Hard to say it's a success or not, but Oculus Rift already lost $500 millions in lawsuit for stealing VR technology secrets from ZeniMax, to make it worse, ZeniMax is seeking law order to stop sales of Oculus Rift altogether.

“Since its October launch, PS VR continues to be well received by people around the world thanks to the high quality, revolutionary VR experience it offers. With more than 53.4 million PS4 units sold through globally we firmly believe PlayStation VR will take the lead position in the VR market” said Andrew House, President and Global CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment. “We are increasing production to meet demand and will continuously support content developers as they create innovative VR experiences that are only possible on PlayStation.”

Was the kinect a sucess? How much did that sell and ended up beeing a fad?

How much did the Vita sell and was touted as a failure?

I just don't see how this is anything but a flop.

Mine is sitting in my closet. While very cool, the lack of good games and the cumbersome set-up makes it not fun to regularly play or leave plugged in.
