E3 Impressions - Oculus Rift and EVR | Game Guys

The Oculus Rift headset has been making quite the impact in gaming as of late. Its ability to display a clear 3D image that wraps around the user's vision and submerge them into the experience has delighted many players. So far the support for the device seems to be tacked onto existing games. While the effect is good in those titles, it pales in comparison to EVR, a new title from CCP, the creators of EVE Online. (E3, EVE-VR, Oculus Rift, Tech)

I get the sense that the Oculus Rift is going to be highly dependent on how many games are made that really make good use of it. It's almost like a console in that sense.

I could see this being fan-fuc*king-tastic for in-car view on Forza or GT. :D

Totally agree, if it sells a million then developers will not support it in there games unless it only takes a week to code into the game, just look at Sony MOVE, over 10 Million sold and you only get a handfull of developers supporting it, like KZ,Resistance etc. The tech is awesome but unfortunaly it wont see much use from developers imo, maybe 10 years from now it will be standard and included with your console, maybe PS5, Xbox one 2.

You really can't just 'code it into your game' - some games have done that (HL2) already and it's ok but hardly what VR/Rift was made for.

The best stuff for rift will be rift exclusive (or maybe have a special rift mode at least) because everything changes in there vs on a 2D screen, scale, speed, control choices etc. All of it has to be thought out properly and that's something I've wanted to happen for years. It would make even the simplest of levels in a game seem like a dream, just walking around, layer gameplay on top of that and we have the new crack.

The Rift is my true next gen device,

Hopefully it turns out well they certainly have got enough support.
