Simplyplaystationgaming.com take time to look at what we know so far about Sony's VR device and if it will be a hit or not.
They should put all their efforts in traditional games instead. More AAA exclusives that are fun, fresh and just awesome to play! Once they have released quite some hit games, they can create addons to extend the life of the PS4
Traditional games that use the headset as a display and less of a Virtual Reality device. If it's full 3D with a 90 degree viewing angle, moving your head moves the camera, uses a Dualshock 4 and not move controls, then they'll have a hit, no question. I don't want an Uncharted game that tries to fully embrace the VR side of things, I'd rather it were just for viewing. Even a 3D movie on it would be more immersive. Ideally I want it to recreate the imax experience at home for games and movies. Simples.
Couldn't agree with you guys more, I don't want this tech to hold back any fresh ideas devs have for this gen
I just hope they manage to control the heat, I was using the Oculus Rift at the weekend and whilst yes it is just a dev kit and not final design it made me very hot. I also felt a little sick when playing a FPS shooter with it as well.
Hmmmm it won't be of much use to me if VR requires a 3d television.
Loved what I was able to experience at CES.
If the average console gamer wont spend and moan about $100 for a camera will they spend over four times that much on two small tvs you fix to your head, that also requires previously mentioned camera. I dont know...
I don't think it will retail for 400, they will know that it will bomb with that price.
I doubt this thing will sell for £400. The magic price point is going to be £199 or at a push £249 for early adopters.
I'm interested to see how Sony deal with managing Project Morpheus. If it launches at a reasonable price with enough content and it's marketed well then I can see it doing "ok". I'm not expecting it to sell millions and millions. I haven't even picked up a PS4 yet so I'm going to focus on that before I even THINK about VR!
I'm concern about Sonys marketing strategy for Morpheus. So far they haven't done well on sparking the mass consumers interest in the PS move or Vita. With the Move, I understand that it's not a true game changer that is a "must have" for gamers. However, with Morpheus if it does everything VR is supposed to do and do it well, it may be a big hit. I'm no marketing expert, but I think people would have to experience it first hand before they can become a believer. That means not only should Morpheus be available at the electronic stores, but it should also be available at all kinds of different cross promotion events.
I agree. I bought the Move when it launched but the support was pretty underwhelming. Morpheus does seem like it's going to be a much bigger deal especially with Sony claiming that it's "not just a peripheral", but I guess we'll just have to wait and see in that regard.
Its a day one for me. I think people will realize what this tech is as soon as they try it for themselves.
