  • VR - Do i need to say more?

    Not sure about the rest of you but i have been looking forward to VR ever sense the VirtualBoy came out and was a flop, i knew it could someday happen. It seems that developers are also hopping on the band wagon and there are going to be a pretty good size lineup this year for games supporting VR. Me i am going to be more partial to getting the Playstation VR just because my comp is okay but i dont think i could handle a good VR experience with out an upgrade and i cant currently afford to buy the device and an upgrade.

    Currently i believe the main competitors are

    Oculus Rift - Coming out soon and haver heard its nice.HTC Vive - Have not read or seen to much about this but i looks like it would be paired up with SteamPlaystation VR (Morpheus) - Also being announced this year. Rumors of being announced in April but most likely around June i think at E-3.Samsung - From what i have seen looks like it just uses your phone with a headset attachment not sure how good that would be.

    Until the cost comes down to the $100-300 I don't see it catching on mainstream. This will be almost forever seen as "weird" by anyone that isn't a fairly avid gamer. It has its applications and games in which it will shine, but I think for it to replace a keyboard and mouse completely it will be a long time.

    I'm thinking BF4 for instance, prone, crouch and a few other basic and important movements are not easily done from what I can see. I would love to be able to stand up using a mock rifle with sensors built in, but I can't see it being better than a keyboard/mouse combo anytime soon.

    I honestly think people invented it for porn.

          That's cool zero you will need to let me know how you like it.

          As for VR going mainstream i think it will catch on and i don't see it replacing mouse and keyboard but replacing monitors. There are a few systems currently being developed that would allow you to carry a rifle and run and duck on a tread mill that may be taking it a little far right now.

          I haven't tried any yet so i do not know how it feels, but from what i can gather and the resolution these can put out they are already better then my 52"tv and my 2 monitors for my desktop. Really and this may sounds stupid but i just want to kinda get the immersive feeling. if i was playing ark, i would feel like i am on the island(with full ear headphones on for sound). I would still think using the normal controller for moving is fine, but to have the ability to turn my head and my character do it just pulls me in just a little more. Also for FPS to peak out of a corner you should be able to just tilt your head. just my thoughts. Also i do not doubt this is going to be big for porn.
