The technological level of the headset doesnt have anything to do with it. If there was anything vr on the marketplace before the recent stuff, the recent stuff isnt 1st gen. Should be easily checkable shrug.

Just saw a thread saying how online play didnt get going until ps3/360. I see a parallel.

1993 – SEGA announce new VR glasses. They were never released

That's the closest we ever got to consumer level VR with proper graphics and head tracking. Everything else was experimental or Commercial level expensive s***.

Everyone loves to point out the virtual boy as VR but again, no head tracking, one color (two if you count black for the background) and it's too primitive to even call it VR (or you might as well call a View Master 3D a VR headset).

The Oculus Rift kickstarter ushered in the actual first generation of viable consumer level VR. Anyone who says otherwise is full of it. If you want to argue about ANY form of VR, well there's stuff going back to the 50's and 60's. So? Someone has produced a flying car prototype but that doesn't mean we're all going to work like the Jetsons.

people are calling out on you and I

Says people, refers to solely himself making himself look bad across multiple threads.

Good work bud.

How messed up are you for lying to people.

I know right. What kind of lifeless fool would try to convince people that consumer grade VR existed in the 90s?

7 posts above you were called and wasn’t your post..

Maybe you should recount them, I already said nothing of the sort exists. Were you perhaps moderated for trolling or something?


Look at this f***ing troll. Trolling the the board and topics. NO ONE is agreeing with you. You bring up a board that has been in active because of your lying pride? How f***ing messed up are you?

I agree with him. KillerTruffle and arleas also agrees with him.

Calm down, and just accept the facts.

I dont recall if the virtual boy was marketed as VR. If it was, then the current stuff isn't 1st gen. I wouldn't compare 80's brick cell phones to smart phones either, but the tech isn't the point. 1st gen is more primitive than later gens.... I honestly don't see the issue. Tho darktheron went a bit overboard to say the least.

Hoverboards. Are they actually hoverboards? No. It's a marketing term.
Mixed Reality. Is it actually mixed reality? Not yet, it's just a marketing term.

You have to fit the definition of VR for it to actually be VR: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_reality_headset

Virtual Boy is just a stereoscopic 3D viewer. You can find stuff like it today at a much better quality, and these are products that market themselves as such, not VR.

Definitions change over time, so I'm hesitant to agree based on that alone. Looking at the wiki pages sources, as one should do, I saw this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VFX1_Headgear. There seemed to be a few more listed as well.

It was originally called the VR32 but it wasn't ever marketed as anything more than stereoscopic 3D.

As I said, the first one that was likely to actually be VR was never released. Sega's VR would have truly been the 1st Generation if it made it to market. Nothing else was aimed at the consumer.

As for the VFx1... I don't even remember hearing about that. It sounds pretty primitive (45°FOV? 256 colors? $600 in 1995?). So ok, sure, that one is "first gen" but I'd be curious to see how many of them actually sold.

You realize he was referring to me right, the one counteracting your point?
