The Oculus Rift Will Battle PS4 And Xbox One At E3

Microsoft , Sony , Nintendo ….Oculus? It’s no surprise that Oculus VR has just announced they’ll be bringing the Oculus Rift to E3, as they’ve had a presence at many, many gaming events to date, and E3 will be a can’t-miss for them.

The Occulus Rift looks neat with lots of possibilities, but in my eyes, it looks too cumbersome to become a hit with consumers. I'm excited to see what they can do with it, but I just don't see it ever becoming mainstream.

I don't think "virtual reality" will be viable until we have something closer to a holodeck than a helmet.

vR sounds cool but I'm never gonna sit on my living room with a helmet on. Would love to have a bash at ot, but it would never replace the good old fashioned TV and couch combo.

ABizzel11658d ago

I don't see how it can compete at E3 since it has to be seen to give off its wow factor, and seeing how most people watch E3 rather than attending it's going to be hard to do.

But nonetheless, it's good to seem them out there and really getting support.

In the very least we're going to have a whole slew of funny videos of people destroying expensive property. People might want to think about having a good spotter till they get used to them.

Really shows how immersive it can be. Now for normal everyday gaming I'm not so sure, but it sure looks like it'd be fun to take a spin on them once in awhile. Oh how I would love to hook up my parents or my little nieces and nephews up to one of these things.

It basically comes down to this. If you have a PC you get the oculus rift. If you have a PS4 or X1 you follow suite. Lol they arent versing each other.

Occulus Rift look like a miniture flat screen tv attached to blk scuba glasses. if they want to compete with Sony VR glasses this E3 they out of luck (far as design) concern.

@ junkyard

why??? so you're able to life-like jack-off more better??

JohnathanACE1659d ago

It will be interesting to see how the Oculus Rift will fair against Sony's VR headset. I wounder if Microsoft will do something similar to compete with the two? A VR headset combined with Kinect could work quite well.

Jovanian 1659d ago

next gen hardware isn't strong enough for a decent VR experience

JohnathanACE1659d ago

The gen just started. We really don't know what these consoles are capable of. We'll just have to wait and see.

KonsoruMasuta1659d ago (Edited 1659d ago )

Yes, VR needs an insane amount of power that only a hardcore PC can offer! That's why the rift is going to support mobile android devices. /S

Get off your high horse.

Oculus said they would like to get VR on smartphones in the FUTURE. The hardware performance of mobile platforms is evolving at a steady quick pace.

Even then, smartphones won't be playing the latest games with cutting edge visuals in VR. Neither will the consoles.

You can still have some great VR experiences even with simpler graphics though.

annus1658d ago

Did I seriously just read that? Sure, you won't be getting your Killzone in 1080p with VR, but immersive VR has existed for DECADES, consoles will be just fine even if they have to drop the resolution for it.

weirdly enough, what excites me about OR isn't related to games present or in the future, i'm really wanting one to visit black mesa and games I played in the late 90s... to see those worlds in VR would be so surreal.
