CEEK Announced for Project Morpheus and Oculus Rift, Halo Designer Contributing

VRFocus - It doesn’t take a $2 billion investment from Facebook to see that virtual reality’s (VR) will have a big impact in the social space. The potential for users to interact with friends and family in new ways is undoubtedly exciting, and companies are only just starting to releaise what’s possible. On such company is Next Galaxy, which has this week announced an agreement with EON Reality to create CEEK, a new social VR platform being developed for the Oculus Rift VR head-mounted display (HMD) on PC and Project Morpheus HMD on PlayStation 4.

Am i the only one that thinks of VR as a cool "idea" but not practical. I want to know whats going on around me when i play a game. If a game has a good story or is just fun to play i can be immersed plenty and still be aware what's happening around me. I just see it as a path that games will take and kinda suprised how well everyone things hey lets put this thing on my face so i can't see anything else or hear since headphones will probably be used and play. . . makes no sense to me.

I am exactly the opposite to me it makes perfect sense, the immersion doesn't just come from enclosing your view but from the head tracking fooling you brain that you truly are in another world, I have not tried it but I have enough imagination to see it's potential

But there is a lot more to VR than just gaming (the $2billion from Facebook shows that) you really are thinking too small, to me VR will be a huge step forward and will only improve as it develops over time.

You miss what i was getting at i was not saying that VR is bad at immersion im saying that i like the level of immersion of gaming already i don't want to be completly immersed in a game like that could spend way to much time and not even know it.
I don't deny that it has other potential but my comment is aimed torwards gaming.

I didn't miss what you were saying it wasn't hard to understand it's just that I disagree with you, the immersion is far more real in VR and as I said not just because your enclosed into that world.

You say you don't want to be completely immersed into it fair enough but I am exactly the opposite I would love to be, VR has huge potential in all sorts of things and that includes gaming.
