Well we don't have any direct numbers. The best you can do is look at steam's stats and make some educated guesses based on math, or use steam spy and look at how many people own certain VR-only games (which is based on educated guesses).

https://techcrunch.com/2017/11/28/virtual-reality-headset-unit-sales-are-slowly-improving/
According to a report from Canalys, in Q3 of 2017, Sony shipped 490,000 PlayStation VR headsets, Oculus shipped 210,000 Rift headsets and HTC shipped 160,000 Vive units. The research agency has not released data publicly for previous quarters, but says this is the first time that high-end headset sales have moved past one million units in a single quarter

It's possible he's including headsets not mentioned (like the Windows MR headsets).

It aggravates me every time to call those "Mixed Realty" but I see why they did it...if you search for VR headset you get Rift or Vive at the top of your search page, but mixed reality headset? All Windows.

Yeah, further down the article the quote continues:
. This quarter included the launch of Microsoft’s Windows 10 Mixed Reality platform, which hosts content on headsets built by OEMs like Samsung, Dell, Lenovo, HP and others.

What are people even buying PS VR for? There's no good exclusives made for it.

I assume it's because they already own the PS4 and don't have a good PC to play real VR on... plus initially PSVR was the cheapest on its own (before Oculus reduced their price)

I think they're in no hurry to make it on PC though since Denuvo got cracked.
