Facebook Closing Hundreds Of Oculus VR Pop-Ups In Best Buy Stores

I thought VR was all the rage right now. According to this report, the reason behind the closures is that some stores would go days without a single VR demo. 

Facebook is closing around 200 of its 500 Oculus virtual reality demo stations at Best Buy locations across the US, Business Insider has learned. The scaling back of Facebook's first big retail push for VR comes after workers from multiple Best Buy pop-ups told BI that it was common for them to go days without giving a single demonstration. An internal memo seen by BI and sent to affected employees by a third-party contractor said the closings were because of "store performance."
