"Microsoft's VR experience creates a room for your racing experience."
Why would I want to strap a metal device over my head just for that?
To look cool loool. The use cases for this is extremely limited even then there are probably better alternatives.
Wow..... They couldn't even make it possible to do first person cock pit view. I would definitely buy an Oculus once they get that to work good. This demo is actually kind of embarrassing lol.
@Zeref I prefer BBQ sauce tbh.
Lmao, Well It's good to know that Xbox One Gamers are hyped for VR. It looks like most Xbox fans that were excited need to purchase a PS4 soon for a true console VR experience.
This is definitely the funniest news of the month, did Spencer really think that this presentation is going to impress anybody? If anything, it's a step back to what we've seen from other VR (racing) games before.
So the idea is that instead of playing in your own house, it feels like you're playing in a cartoon theater? Ummm…neat?
Exact same game and experience.... except with a helmet over your head LOL! that demo clip made me feel embarrassed smh...
XO can't handle real VR, plain and simple. Good to know there's potential in the PC space, however, for better rift support and potential windows integration. Plus, if they form a good partnership with Oculus now, when the next console launches, they can build it with VR in mind.
Microsoft is all about misinformation and marketing. It doesn't have to "work well" in the sense of it benefiting gamers, as long as it "works", they can market it and trick people into thinking it'll work like other Oculus games on PC like real VR. If everybody read news sites and did their research, a lot less Xbox One would be sold. Microsoft know exactly what they are doing and who their target is with this partnership. And again it's sad people want to keep supporting MS.
XBone FAIL !!!
If the video were to show Project Morpheus with Driveclub, the Sony-only people in here would be bouncing off the walls.
@BattleAxe Not if it was setup like this.An it wouldn't be it would be cockpit view more then must likely with the option to move the camera behind the car with the whole screen still being filled with the game itself.
To visualize what it's like to "wear" Oculus? Real Hardware test would give much more accurate on how good it really is. E3 2015 Hardware face-off between Morpheus and Oculus would be interesting.
Lol that video also killed my excitement for the feature. Hopefully they evolve the experience because this right here is just a buzz kill.
If the virtual TV was larger than your real life TV of if you live in a crack den those would be possible reasons.
Maybe if they had dancing salsa girls from telemundo walking around with some tecante in hand, maybe I might throw that device over my noggin.
But then how can you afford a darn oculus rift? And a Xbox one aaaaand a gaming pc lol
Why would you render the room at all, vs. just having the game take up the full view? I know this is just a demo, but it may be the worst conceived demo I have ever seen.
Wow !!That was...ok..0.o hey at least they're trying. this is in no way competing with morpheus that actually is for games that are built from the ground up to utilize VR headset.
if not a game made for VR, it had been so, as a movie screen But I believe Oculus will change that for the Xbox.
I hope some games will be built for Oculus on Xbox One. This feature really just don't make sense to me.
"This is What Forza Looks Like on Oculus" I wouldn't know what it looks like because you're shitty IGN flash video want work on mobile! Also IGN did you seriously switch for disqus to livefyre? Wow. Stupid move.
They created a VR room with a TV in the distance with Forza playing on it. No, really. That's what it is. Stop laughing.
this is far better.. https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat...
"This is What Forza Looks Like on Oculus" That was crap... Perfect example how NOT to utilize VR.
I finally got the video to work on mobile and this was the most hilarious thing I've ever seen. Did someone laugh at the end of the video? What a horrible idea. Just embarrassing.
I guess if you don't have a TV it would be nice haha
If you don't have a TV either you don't have money to afford one and the same goes towards Oculus. And if you did have money you'd most likely get a TV.
@The_Infected: Spending 1000 dollars on OR might mean you can't spend 1000 dollars on a tv. I am in the beta program for OR and one of the most popular apps was a virtual movie theatre. It was just like this, it simulated a Theatre with a screen you watched. And a lot of people loved it. Personally I didn't find much use for it, but I guess there is a demand.
Are you Kidding Me? like Seriously who thought that was a Good Idea. i can do that without oculus Rift :/
This is so awesome! I can sit in my room playing video games and it looks like I'm sitting in another room playing video games! "This is what we call "Third person VR". We don't put you in the game. We put you in a VR room that you play your game in. A truly innovative approach to VR." Yo dawg, I heard you like playing video games, so we put you playing your video games into a video game!
Ohh because its not Project Morpheus right ? lol move along fanboy child
I'm looking forward to the Rift next year, but damn, they really just had to shove that xbox brand down our throats.
So much hate. Who cares? The only ones hyping VR are the Sony fans. If you want true VR, you'll be gaming on PC. #tistrue
It's like you're sitting at home and playing a game! WTF is this S#$%
So instead of playing forza on my xbox one on my tv in my room, I can stream the xbox one game to my pc and put on the oculus rift so I can watch my avatar sit in a room playing xbox one on the virtual screen in the room. This is like a dream come true. /s
Your comment made my day! Bubble hahaha
I could swear I was really playing Virtual Skeeball!
I dont even....
So let me get this straight they partner with oculus with a controller no one wants for vr that can stream only some xbox one games only in 2d with no vr if u have a pc to handle it as well as an xbox one ,fantastic announcement lol
The quality is also horrendous. its dumb. They must have been scared to death of PM if they went off the deep end and even proposed this as an alternative to actual VR.
It's a typical MS move though, buy your way into an industry instead of working on it yourself. This goes from Skype to Nokia to Mojang and even to the notorious 3rd party exclusive deals. This is why I just can't support this company, these practices just go against my principles.
This looks like some hastily thrown together response to something they deem a threat. A stop-gap solution until they can get a new console out that can actually handle good VR. Makes me wonder what Sony plans on showing at E3.
Wait. So this basically simulates me sitting in a room playing a game while I'm sitting in a room playing a game. Alright.
LMAO! Yeah I was thinking the same thing. Not very impressive at aaaaaall. But hey MS has not been impressive since they started this current gen.
Best description so far. Lol
wait until they add the feature that allows you to strap on a virtual VR helmet while sitting in your virtual environment! ;)
Man that was lame.....
...I cannot believe someone thought this was a good idea.
Considering the original ideas they had for the Xbox One's policies, this actually may be one of their better ideas. It's a very low curve...
"This is going to be very jarring for you, but, there has been a malfunction with the headset you ordered from us. Right now, you're actually in your room at your computer wearing an Oculus headset, but, you're in a coma-like trance, my friend." - Steve (Customer Service) https://pbs.twimg.com/media...
Well there you have it folks, hype killed. Anyway to say you can do VR on xbone lol talk about desperate.
Xbox won! /s
This literally had me in tears. Phil should've at least invited someone along for the fake applause. Very awkward!
LOL! i noticed that also. He was waiting for at least one person to clap.
That part was hard to watch...
Reminds me of this... https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Kind of dumb tbh
It's not kind of dumb. It is dumb.
if not a game made for VR, it had been so, as a movie screen, you know? But I believe Oculus will change that for the Xbox.
What did...who did...why did...What?!
it looks like you are playing at home with your tv http://media.giphy.com/medi...
Reality redefined. Now we can have the feeling of being immersed in a game we're playing in our own home. VR is about immersion.
Well if you always wanted to know what owning a private movie theatre feels like this will do the trick. http://cdn.winbeta.org/site... Funny how this reminds me of the big screen TV demo of Hololens.
I love that picture. Shows the average person's kitchen. I really believe there comes a point where technology becomes stupid and cumbersome to more traditional methods of getting things done.
I'm sorry but that must be the dumbest piece of technology that has ever been created. I mean, I'm speechless. Why would anyone want to do that Roomception thing?
