Phil Spencer hopes VR isn't the future of gaming.

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Phil Spencer hopes VR isn't the future of gaming.

Well i agree with him. I can't see VR becoming a huge success in the long run but I might be wrong of course. Personally I dislike the idea of wearing anything while playing. Well except the sexy lingerie I bought thinking Phil would be spying me through Kinect 😏

One thing I've learned reading these Spencer threads; he's truly a charismatic person. Otherwise no-one would bother trying to interpret different meanings of what he's "basically saying".

Brought to you from the people that gave you Kinect, HoloLens and IllumiRoom.

Not to mention it isnt VR at all. Its a lie.

Even having that into account, while its these bricks you must put in your head, it will never be super popular.

What do you call it, when you move your head (in the real world) and your vision ingame follows the motions?

Its real VR.

People need to stop downplaying this already.

 

This is like "ps4 haz no gamez".

It most likely is the future of single-player gaming.


and online multi-player gameing.

The only thing it isnt suited for is co-op (2 ppl on 1 screen) & many players playing at once games, like Mario Party.

Shut up bitch.... VR is MY FUTURE. Where I will have VR friends and hopefully a VR lover and we can have a VR life... 💗💖💕

Just wanna say your profile pic sells this...

OT: Yeah I have to agree with Phil on this one. Also I feel that this isn't the true VR people have been envisioning, but rather have accepted because they want to be a part of something new. A lot of people genuinely like this, and I'm sure its for them, but in general I feel a forced excitement on that end. Same with AR, but to a lesser degree. AR at least seems closer to the AR people have envisioned, and defintitely seems to widen gameplay experiences rather than limit them like I feel current VR will. The HoloLens is just as seemingly annoying to wear, no somehow more than VR machines.

Definitely the best sentence of this thread.

He is salty because he no have games for VR .if have something he will be hype it from every ways



It's funny how people are trying to say he's wrong when it's his own opinion.

Plus what he said is true anyway. VR probably won't be the future of gaming because not every type of game will work well with VR, only certain types. It's the same thing as saying that motion controls were the future of gaming, and for a while they were and they did offer some great experiences, but they only really worked well for certain types of games and look at how they are barely used now.

The only way VR would ever even be the future of gaming anyway was if everyone had one, therefore it would have to be bundled with something or come with a system. Sort of how Microsoft wanted Kinect to be huge and supported more so they bundled it with every Xbox One at first so that way everyone had one if they bought an Xbox One.

VR is great to see, but it won't be the future of gaming. It will be something that's hyped up about at first and will be cool to see in use but I think after a while it will end up just like motion controls. Now of course I could be completely wrong and maybe it will take off hugely, but like it has been said most factors and signs currently are pointing to it not happening. 



I dont hope its the future. I hope its part of it



Maybe not the future... But VR or AR will play a huge role in it for sure.
I'm really excited about AR (at least the way MS is envisioning it with HoloLens). I'm less attracted by VR for now but I have to admit that being able to be fully immersed in a SP campaign for games like Halo would be cool to, but again just as an option.
