It doesn't seem a bit strange to you that Oculus is releasing two stand alone VR headsets within a year of each other
Not particularly. The Oculus Go basically replaces GearVR, and Oculus Quest is the stand alone they've been working on, since basically the Rift was launched.
Additionally, stand alone is the easiest way to make a wireless headset.
No, I don't think VR will ever be mainstream. I've always seen at as a niche experience. It's incredibly appealing to VR enthusiasts and not really worth it for everyone else. Most gamers spend less than $200 on their game consoles. I just don't see it ever being worth the price tag to those people.
That's the thing though, the price will drop pretty substantially over the next 10 years. A headset that beats out the PSVR in 10 years, could easily cost $50.Last edited by the-pi-guy - on 10 October 2018
