Expect many news stories about VR getting people sick

Pussies! Oh you were just jealously trolling anyway?! I apologize.

Most people can learn not to get sick. I've had people who started out not being able to stand more than a couple minutes in VR now able to use it indefinitely.

There will always be some people who never adapt, but my experience so far is that most people will get used to it.

Sitting helps some. It depends on the game. I have never had issues with PS VR or HTC Vive but have had issues with Oculus on 3 of the 4 times I used it. Ibhave used PSVR twice and HTC once but at trade shows.

Sitting helps a lot. So far I've never experienced any VR in which walking felt natural, it always feels odd in some way.

I do not get sick butv have been made uneasy in some. Narcosis and War Thunder had a few issues but when I lookee at a fixed object like a wing while turning it helped.

there certain biological factors that vr will never over come regardless of the tech. vr is nothing but a fad just like 3d tv and it is going fail like ever other time it has be released

There are even technologies in development which trick your mind in believing your body is really're so wrong with this statement. But if it makes you feel better just stay in your bubble.

End of 2017 it won't be a fad anymore once Xbox does it too, am sure that will change your mind!

Garethvk891d ago

Companies like Sony have put so much money into it and games for it that should it fail, it will be one of the worst in history.

Garethvk891d ago

It will either be the next big thing or 3D TV.

At least spell the headline right if you're going to post panic pussy posts..!

Someone is angry. How is this a panic post? You have noted the numerous articles about people getting sick playing the new Resident Evil? But they are all wrong and panic posts? Were you at E3 and did you play the games in question like I and the others in attendance did?
