Hm, I wonder if I can edit the poll to add a both option. I actually also do this, but when I fly its in VR.

No pancake only games reside on my system any longer.

It’s even smaller than that. There are a few games where you can see the total number of players, for example on Steam, and compare to number of forum members. Since DCS World is free it’s really hard to figure who the genuine players are though.
A poll on the forums only samples enthusiasts so it’s results are rather skewed.
ED no doubt already knows the answer to this question.

And you do not know.
I am pretty sure the percentage of users using VR in flight sims is likely somewhat higher than the percentage of VR users for overall PC gaming.
But we certainly do not know what those percentages are unless developers like ED were to share that information.

How would ED be able to know this?
(No sarcasm, honest question)



Oh and by moving this poll to the VR sub-forum, it became useless and might just as well been deleted. @moderator, please move it back.

Steam can track your activity and track if you are using VR or not. Presumably the standalone game can report back to ED, which it does for your product Keys and whatnot if you are using VR or maybe what your system specs are.

I would assume ED knows, and if they want to give us the number it would be interesting to know. If they don't we have this rather unscientific poll.

I believe that we have high VR users as we are most optimal target audience next to driving simulators. But outside our niche group, one digit and likely under 2%.

Yeah it is obviously enough for ED to continue to support and expand on.

Even amongst specific PC gamers (Steam users as surveyed) isn't it currently less than 1% ?
