Hopefully this helps VR get out of the niche market. But, I'm staying as far away from Meta and Facebook as possible. If I get into VR, I'd rather get a Valve Index or PSVR2.

That's some exponential growth. VR may be here to stay after all.

I think the stand-alone aspect of this has contributed to the success...

Wow I'm surprised cuz I thought VR wasn't growing as much. That's pretty impressive considering how it released at the same time with the next-gen consoles. This sold just as much as the Xbox Series.

High-end VR has been stuck in quite a lul for a while with not many games coming out and seemingly just waiting on the arrival of psvr2 . The quest 2 is sorta like another market as with mobile and console gaming. That's why Digital Foundry has been hailing psvr2 as the return of high end vr.

Wow, Sony Gonna save VR!. Hate to break it to you but VR is doing pretty good as you can see from the sales of the OQ2 compared to any other VR headset. And dont try point it as its own market VR is VR it can be hooked up to a high end pc and work standalone.
