According to the articles, it could be either one. So will it be Augmented Reality or Virtual Reality that goes mainstream first?

They are both already mainstream.
AR gaames have been on cellphones for awhile now (Ingress, PokemonGO). You can try VR with a cardboard headset you make your self and a phone. Or for a measly $300 you can get a PSVR.
Which one is going to last? AR, no doubt. Jury still out on VR.
