VR Gaming
« on: April 03, 2015, 10:56:17 pm »
The next big gimmic or innovation to gaming. The potential of VR gaming  once again crossed everyones mind when the Oculus Rift was sucessfully crowd funded. Since it was bought out by facebook people have lost faith/interest in it but the amazing potential led to others joining in namely Sonys "Project Morpheus" and Valves SteamVR.

What are everyones views on this potential future for gaming?

I think it will be nice at the start but then sink into a pit of unused stuff for a few years then be suddenly rebooted with a few successes and become a generally accepted concept like console and PC games are.

I don't think it will have much use outside of gaming except for building purposes, like virtually implanting new buildings into the landscape before building them to check they match up with the aesthetics promised.

etc.

VR has massive potential, I'm definitely planning on getting one once they are released.

I'm just hoping they aren't gimmicky.

I saw a video not long ago that would move the POV if you moved your phone around so you could look around.
Imagine doing that while watching movie on a VR headset.
