Current VR has a lot of problems.  The hardware is fairly expensive, bulky, low quality. It also lacks must have software.  It's also isolating.

Most, perhaps all of these problems will be fixed in the future with better headsets and software.  But what's the priority for you?  

What problem would need to be fixed before you would be interested in a VR headset?

Cost is still a major issue for a lot of us, specially if you add the extras (cameras & controllers) needed for a better immersion.



Please excuse my bad English.

Currently gaming on a PC with an i5-4670k@stock (for now), 16Gb RAM 1600 MHz and a GTX 1070

Steam / Live / NNID : jonxiquet    Add me if you want, but I'm a single player gamer.

Already have the PSVR and Oculus Go. Both on day one.

Unfortunately, I'm having a hard time finding compelling new software for both. Guess I'll just play what I already have.

Well, technically I've been using VR since the Gear VR and now the Oculus Go. But that's just for porn. To actually game on VR I will need a great game first. A good open world RPG.

Also I'll need much better hardware. The current offerings are just pitiful. I need a headset that would actually fully utilize a 3080ti. And all of that preferably wireless.

I already have 4 headsets. I'm sure I'll get a new one rather sooner than later, lol.



Official member of VGC's Nintendo family, approved by the one and only RolStoppable. I feel honored.

I already have Oculus Rift and am happy with the experiences I've had with it.

Anyone that says otherwise is a filthy liar.

Nothing, I feel like using VR regularly would make me feel like the biggest loser (not saying that those who use it are), na mean. But I'm sure future holds tech that will provide virtual realities by a click of a button, without the need of wearing a headset and gesturing like a fool, and then I might be interested.
