Virtual Reality is Just Around the Corner

It has always been the dream of gamer to be able to be in the games they play. No longer will a controller be necessary, and a TV screen will only be for one thing, TV. Games will come to life around us, and as we swing our arms, mighty swords will smite our enemies. A well placed jump will allow us to dodge an opponent sweeping for the legs, and after a win the sweet smell of victory, and sweat, will fill our nostrils. The point is, all we have ever wanted is to live the fantasies of our heroes. Not on just an emotional level, but on a physical one as well. One day we will be able to enter this virtual reality and do just that. Amazing advancements in the last few years have made unbelievable leaps toward virtual reality gaming. These product are crazy awesome, and will definitely prove that virtual reality is just around the corner. (Dev, Industry, Oculus Rift, Tech)

Why does it even matter what you look like when you're playing alone in the privacy of your home? Who are these people you speak of who may somehow MAGICALLY catch you looking like a total loser? lol

I am excited about VR in the form of the Oculus Rift since it's the only product out there with a real chance. Here are a few examples of the potential for a totally new experience and concepts:

The movie theater demo:

Horror game within a horror game:

Why has the gun in the above pic have a red coloured flash suppressor?
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   526d ago
So that people know it's fake.
SaveFerris  +   526d ago
Okay. Never considered that.

Just like 40% of the population over the next 2/3 yrs wearing Google glass/s, it will end up being cool and fashionable and the twat will be the one who doesn't wear one
