Samsung Has Sold Over 5 Million Gear VR Headsets

More than 5 million Gear VR headsets have been picked up by consumers, says Samsung, and those users have played a collective 10 million hours of video with the device. The Oculus-powered VR headset is available at 20,000 retail stores throughout the United States.

Stats for individual apps weren't shared, though it's known the Samsung VR app is popular. It offers over 1,200 360-degree videos.

Tim Baxter, president of Samsung Electronics America, made the announcement at CES. The Gear VR's sales are a good indicator of the potential mobile VR has.
