Beat Saber surpasses $100 million in revenue on the Oculus Quest platform

Beat Saber remains the most profitable Quest title, with others not far behind.

What you need to know

  • Beat Saber is the first game to hit $100 million in revenue from the Quest platform alone.
  • The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners has amassed $50 million in revenue across all VR platforms.
  • Several other developers have reported record sales, citing huge growth in the Quest player base, in particular.

At Facebook Connect 2021, the company's annual AR and VR conference, Facebook announced that Beat Saber had amassed over $100 million in revenue on the Oculus Quest platform alone. Earlier this year, we saw that only six games had surpassed $10 million in revenue, and the quick milestone of $100 million for one of the best Quest 2 games shows just how much the market has grown in 2021 alone.

While Beat Saber has been out for well over four years on the PC, it took a while to make its way to other VR platforms like the Oculus Quest 2. Over the years, Beat Saber has become synonymous with the term VR and has become rather a cultural phenomenon, and now we know just how big the game has really grown.

On a similar front, Skydance Interactive also announced that The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners has amassed over $50 in revenue across all three platforms that it's available on — that's PC, PSVR, and Oculus Quest.

Since its launch, the Oculus Quest 2 has become the defacto place for gamers to get a fantastic experience without having to make much of an investment. Likewise, the influx of customers has been extremely lucrative for developers, who have been largely withering on the vine for years while VR slowly grew.

Other developers of note who have reported record sales lately include BigBox VR of Population: One fame and Downpour Interactive of Onward fame — both studios that Facebook has since acquired to join its Oculus Studios first-party brand.

Spotify Q1 beats on sales of $2B with monthly active users up 31% to 286M

The coronavirus may be decimating some corners of the economy, but the impact on the digital music, as evidenced by the world’s biggest music streaming company, appears to be minimal. Today Spotify reported its earnings for Q1 with revenues of €1.848 billion ($2 billion at today’s rates) and an inching into a positive net income of $1 million. Monthly active users (not total subscribers) now stand at 286 million, with paid (premium) users at 130 million and ad-supported monthly active users at 163 million. Ad-supported users are growing at a slightly higher rate at the moment, at 32% versus 31%, Spotify said. Spotify beat  analysts’ forecasts on both sales — they had on average been expecting revenues of $1.86 billion — and EPS, which had been forecast to be -$0.49 but came in at -$0.20 on a diluted basis and $0.00 undiluted. The numbers underscore the positive signals we’ve had from the wider industry. More generally, we have seen a huge boost in streaming media services — includ

Adobe is giving students and teachers free access to Creative Cloud

A simple "Hey Google, turn on Guest Mode" will ensure that none of your interactions with Google Assistant are collected by the company and nor will they be used to 'personalize your experience' — often an indirect way of referring to targeted ads. When it's on, the Assistant will play a special chime to let you know. Smart displays with Assistant will also show a guest icon on the screen. And you can always check for yourself by saying, "Hey Google, is Guest Mode on?" Even with G
