Diablo Creator on VR: "We've all seen it coming"

VRFocus - With virtual reality (VR) technology becoming more and more prominent by the day, plenty of videogame development legends have spoken out about devices such as the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD). Most recently David Brevik, the famed co-founder of Blizzard Noth and designer on the original Diablo, has commented on the kit. Instead of glowing predictions of the future, the developer's statements were somewhat mixed.

The story is too old to be commented.

“You look dumb wearing it,”

You look dumb wearing a condom too but that has never stopped people getting jiggy.

People are so obsessed with how they look and what people think of them its pathetic.

While i do think that vr is gonna be the future of video games (not anytime soon), they're gonna have to find a way to make it less bulky. The majority of people is not going wear this thing with other people around. I think when it gets to the point where its not so big and bulky to where it covers your half your face and more like glasses people will start warming up to vr.

VR will be DOA, because while everyone is waiting for it something better will come along and take us all by surprise.

VR may not catch on with the masses right now but it will eventually. It's been tried in the past and Oculus/Morpheus are just the latest incarnations. When the quality, price, and comfort hit a sweet spot VR will be huge.
