If they can get pc VR games to come in I'd buy it. But after GT sport not being able to handle it well I don't want half assed VR.

I agree. So, do you think the xbox one x could handle it? I played on the VIVE and had a blast with it. I heard PSVR is crap compared to the VIVE and I don't think Microsoft should even consider it if it's not as good as the VIVE.


I have no idea honestly. It should be better than ps4 pro but how much Idk. I have psvr, it can be cool but racing games show its limits. Looking like 1/8th of a mile up the track looks like I'm on a ps2. Up close cars look great but once they're about 4 car lengths away they get pixely. Its my understanding that its all on the ps4 not the vr headset for this. You can use a psvr on pc, I've used it on my x1 and pc for cinematic mode but there's an app to use vr on pc to. My pc can't handle vr though. But I would only want Xbox vr on the x1x, the old Xbox would force us to have crap games.

It needs something amazing that’s exclusive to VR.

What you're asking for would require every VR owner across both platforms to purchase a copy at ~$175 each for it to be commercially viable and break even.

Well according to NPD the PSVR sales are down from last December so... ouch.

Vr is neat as hell for about an hour then you just want a regular tv and controller to actually play games and relax. Same as Kinect and motion controls just distractions that are ultimately gimmicks with no practical application.
My top 10 PS4 games = FFX HD, The Last of Us Remastered, Bloodborne, Uncharted 4, Horizon Zero Dawn, Persona 5, Yakuza 0, FF12 HD, Until Dawn, Journey.

Well, that's how I feel about it.

Once you've activated all the extra gear, made sure the dog's locked away in the next room, shooed all of your furniture out of the way and calibrated, you usually get about 30-40 minutes out of it before the lenses start to steam up, or your duodenum starts to make gurgly noises, or your mind is just too taxed from all that equilibrium-eff-uppery. I mean, they're great, those 30-40 minutes, but afterwards you feel like you need a rest.

I don't know about you, but any gaming device that makes me feel like it needs to be a high-energy event is going to fall neatly into the "once in a while" category.

Though that said, the first time I tried out Job Simulator, I played until I got knackered then spent another hour watching all of the videos I took, so I guess that part counts as my "rest".

A decade working in AAA game development? Time certainly flies.

The industry need it though
Having 2 consoles doing VR is better for 3rd Party devs.

No it really doesn't. Until VR can prove it belongs in the industry as a solid, consistent form of revenue for investors then it will continue to stay as it is, a niche product for hobbists whom enjoy it.

As many others have said, its not evolved or been developed enough to warrant a serious investment from someone like Microsoft whom is already invested in mixed reality.

How can it prove itself if no one support it??

It would just cause all of the haters to complain about MS spending time on stupid VR gimmicks, instead of AAA titles.
