VRFocus reports on Sony Computer Entertainment America CEO Shawn Layden commenting on why Project Morpheus titles won't boast '50 hours of gameplay'.
think such would be a medical hazard...
Medical hazard or not, I just wish they would tell us if we're going to be able to play all our PS4 games on the Morpheus, with or without 3D and VR.
That would really hurt your eyes and give you massive headaches If you played it for too long
Yeah, but how can they say it won't be 50 hrs. It will be as many hrs as we want it to once we buy it. Havnt they ported Skyrim to Occulus or are going to?
They will cut Skyrim/Witcher3/NBA2k15 to 50 hours lol... They probably mean the games Sony will make.
50 hours of Project Morpheus later; "I know Kung-Fu."
Funny bubble for you!
Thanks this comment my day!
I wonder how screwed up your brain could get if they make an Inception/Matrix kind of game. Within the game you're putting on a VR headset at the destination to reach another area, but you get so many levels deep that you don't even know which one is the "real" level or worse... the immersion is so deep that you don't ever take the VR headset off at all. I wonder if it'll get so far that developers need to code in reminders for gamers to take the headset off. I doubt it'll get that bad, but you never know haha.
@lxlkuyaboilxl Didn't watch the South Park episode on the Rift? :)
@opoikl LOL that was insane.
@opoikl Lol Steve from customer support will call in game saying, "Listen my friend. This is going to be very hard to comprehend, but none of what you are seeing is real." O_o,
Dammit, now I'm psyched to re-watch Chuck.
That is probably a good thing. If you look at a regular screen too long it hurts your eyes. This would probably be completely unhealthy. Also, could playing too much VR alter your perception?
I can only imagine it would get to the point where they begin showing my apartment (without my knowledge) to potential buyers, and stating, "the man in the corner with the contraption on his head? just ignore him. He says little, keeps a clean area, and won't be a bother. Just don't take the visor off his head. Doing so could damage him more then he already is. Other than that, this is a wonderful place for raising a family." We are all going to be like Kevin Spacey from K-PAX.
We are all only going to eat fruit?
What does the length of a game have to do with the amount of time you play a game? Just because a game doesn't have 50 hours of gameplay doesn't mean a gamer won't play more than 50 hours on Morpheus.
Let's say that 2 hours a day is not damaging your health. It will take 25 days to beat a 50 hour game for the story only.
And that the thing. There are no guidelines for how much VR a person can play a day.
Exactly, how many times in a game have we said "Once I get to this part I'll put it down" and 2hrs later your still sitting there, not blinking, still playing...
It's reasons like this that VR won't have as big an adoption rate as supporters entire it to be
I disagree, and ppl who get into RIGS will be putting in hundreds of hrs. I think Mr Layden was just fending off questions about overuse and motion sickness from the "gaming experts" @ fox.
It's like Clockwork Orange..
"IT'S A SIN!"
I would at least hope it could be implemented into games like the witcher3 for example, to be able to follow Geralt as usual, but be able to look around the environment (up, sides etc). ... The world is so big and well done, you miss some of the vastness having the camera aimed at him in its default state. Some of the mountains are massive and tall: adding the ability to look around would immerse the player that much more
Maybe it should have a auto pause or shut off function after one hour of playing to prevent problems
To Be Expected... However, the individual game prices need to offer value due to the lack of (consistent) longevity. Be great if VR Games cost no more than the latest Blu Ray Movie Releases ...$20 or so /
I wonder if the titles will still be $60
It says theyll cost the same as traditional console games.
I am the lawnmower man.
Maybe the next iterration Project NEO will be able to do 50 hours.
Well most RPG's past that so I'll just wait till they have an RPG on it.
But I was so looking forward to playing Project Cars with a G29 steering wheel & Project Morpheus which I'd surely get many many countless hours playing
I would argue most games don't have that much to them. So I don't see the issue. I'm excited for the games. But all the things VR can do aside from that is just, if not more exciting in my opinion.
50 hours of gameplay for Summer Lessons?
But they'll still cost $60,and not be worth it.
Just wait until a sword art game is released.
