It’s changing, it’s growing, and with each new game, it’s getting better and better. VR is very much alive and anyone who thinks otherwise is wrong.

VR wasn't dead or dying. It was just an experimental tech with a high entry cost, which prevented most gamers from adopting it as fast as they'd like. Also high-end VR is still 1 good year into it's life cycle almost 2 for PC, and good gaming experiences are just starting to come out even if they are older games being remade for VR.

But look what happened when the price dropped on all headset this holiday, all 3 nearly sold out everywhere. The market is there, they just have to get the price down and consistent where a profit can be made (hopefully $250 for PSVR, and $399 / $499 for Oculus and Vive), and continue to produce the content to support the headsets.

VR is in its infancy still, and it takes 2 - 3 years to start pumping out games consistently. So expect VR to be a big push for next-gen, come 2020.

I was watching the lawnmower man over this past weekend. I would love to get VR setup like that at my home with the gyroscopic thing you climbed into and rotated all around with the full body suits.

I love my PSVR. It's truly a game-changer and has opened my eyes more than ever to what the future of gaming could be like.

Anyone who thinks VR is going anywhere has not put it on yet. The experience is something any gamer should have.

LOL Opinion piece, trying to state something as fact. VR is on the peak it's fad curve. Won't be around all too much longer. Thank god.

iDadio259d ago

And your response is an opinion comment stating it wont be around much longer as a fact?

dreue259d ago

zaherdab259d ago

"Won't be around all too much longer. Thank god." wow vr must really have hurt you:( what about people having fun with vr does that hurt youre feelings too?

T2X259d ago

That's your opinion. The actual fact, if you bothered to check, is that they have sold a lot of units and xmas will sell even more. Even if I didnt like it, I would at least applaud the tech advances. Apparently not you though! Lol.

VR in some shape or form will be around for quite some time! Will also be the standard way to play games. Not saying that will be soon, so don't worry, you can still enjoy your flat games for a while, but it will happen. Until then the tech needs to be perfected and without putting it out there this can't happen...

Sold my psvr, biggest regret ever, fantastic device just fell into some financial difficulties losing my job, I miss it for sure.
Was it perfect no but the experiences and party nights with friends and family were special ones, especially seeing my mum and dad finally get why I like playing games after 37yrs lol. Seeing my mum cry with the ocean game, the deep was nice and putting a dolphin youtube video on where lots of dolphins were swimming around my mum who had a fear of water but loves the BBC David attonbourgh documentaries was great.
