Tickets Open for Oculus & Women in Games GDC Party

VRFocus- Last week saw Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD) creator Oculus VR confirm that it would be heading to the 2015 Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco, California, USA this March with its ‘latest prototypes’ in tow. At the same time, the company confirmed that it would be co-hosting a mixer with Women in Games International (WIGI), allowing members of the VR community and beyond to meet up. Now the pair have started to offer free tickets to the event, operating on a first-come first-serve basis.

Wait, so that's women in Oculus games. Sweet. We need more of these VR babes.

This is very significant. Great news.

Is it just that easy? I'm genuinely asking.

Babadook7164d ago (Edited 164d ago )

For a few games it's pretty easy. Just need to apply the mod and settings. For most of them of course you need tinker yourself with settings at the moment but it's not that hard (apparently).

RiseNShine163d ago (Edited 163d ago )

It's as easy or complex as you want, most of the big games like Hogwarts Legacy, Atomic Heart, etc, , hundreds of them (check flatscreen to vr discord) have some profiles already made, so you just load them and it automatically sets the best settings others modders have already found, so it's a matter of minutes, but of course you can tinker for hours to make it suit your needs.

Praydog is amazing..not only made a lot of modern Resident Evil games to work in VR, now its Unreal engine games...definitely a talented guy

That's fine. GT7 would overshadow it anyway at it has open wheel and regular cars.

Should have been spending their time updating Squadrons with better resolution, frame rate, haptics, etc as there isn't a game like that on PS VR 2 yet.

But it's EA. They don't think.

Babadook7401d ago

I agree. It would sell better on PSVR2 right now.

Knushwood Butt402d ago (Edited 402d ago )

A wasted opportunity, but I don't buy EA / Codemasters stuff anyway. Grid Legends just came out on Plus and I haven't touched it. Why would I when I have GT7 and PSVR2?

Abnor_Mal402d ago

Not into F1 racing, but still a missed opportunity.

ApocalypseShadow402d ago

That's where opportunity presents itself that they could offer something else that other developers haven't offered yet. Yeah. There's No Man's Sky. But a space game with a story would be great. Like the old days with Colony Wars.

Abnor_Mal401d ago

Exactly, they could have possibly lured more players just from the inclusion of a vr mode.

I miss Colony wars and G-Police, Low-Fi I hope will scratch that itch when it releases. We also need a vr War/Starhawk game.

Knushwood Butt401d ago

Just watched the trailer of Low-Fi. Most definitely on my radar.
