Experienced Points Why the Oculus Rift is a Big Deal

Shamus Young:

Maybe you're really upset that Facebook bought Oculus Rift. Maybe you're okay with it. Maybe you're wondering what the big deal is. I mean, it's just a gimmick peripheral, right? Who cares? And they've been talking about it for twenty years. What makes it so special this time?

What makes VR so special? Isn't it just like playing a game using 3D glasses? Minecraft was doing that years ago! (Oculus Rift, PC)

yeah i bet is one of those accessories that you are curious at first and later you will throw it on a shelve to collect dust just like old Nintendo peripherals. Do people even realize how stupid they look with that thing on their face? ahahahahhhhhhh

I dont think VR is the future, i think it will be important and a big piece of the pie, but with new AR technology out. I think people are more comfortable with it.

Personally I'm not that interested, and I tried out the prototype a few months back.

However I do see thee Oculus Rift as the first step in the long development to actually make VR better.It wont be accepted by everyone at first, and it will take at least 5-10 years to be fully accepted by gamers.

It may even become another gimmick aslo by then so who knows.
