HTC Vive, it had plenty of different games and some rollercoaster demo etc. Some action games, scary games and exploration. I mean it was cool for a while but that's it. Using a headset got annoying quickly and some extra immersion isn't worth it. And I couldn't see My surroundings which was disturbing. It's actually creepy to think one day My kids spending their day wearing these headsets. 

Well the Vive is the most unfortable from the big 3 but alright, might not be for you in that case. Are you often looking for your sourrinding while you game? I never do it so never bothered me its not possible in vr, If i game, i always watch on my tv and not my sourrinding anyways

Do you know the book/upcoming movie "Ready Player Once". Possible our future is like that lol:D

He said the headset got annoying quickly, but didn't exactly specify that it was "uncomfortable". The headset isn't objectively uncomfortable for every single person out there either from what I've seen.

Heh I'm thinking about the sex-scene from Stallone movie "Demolition Man" and hoping our future won't be like that.

I've done my research, I've seen the people blown away by VR and I've also seen those who just aren't interested in it. People will play games the way they want to play them. 

The 2nd is something I havnt really come across myself to be honest. I have demoed my PSVR to like 50? people and everybody was pretty blown away. Some people got motion sick (thats definitly a problem for some) but nobody said the expierence as it is wouldnt be mind blowing. 

Sure most of them havnt bought a PSVR themselfs (though most of them dont even own a ps4 or any console at all), but it was definitly the "coolest" tech stuff I have ever shown to other people (cooler then stuff like the new iPhone and co).

 

Make me wondering if those people that dislike it just had a bad expierence (bad game, bad setup, whatever) or if they really just didnt liked the expierence of beeing able to basically teleport into a different world.

I'm not the one trying to present my opinion as an objective fact. I don't need anybody or anything to support my opinion because I never claimed it to be anything more than my opinion in the first place...

So if I say the Nintendo Switch has better graphics then the Xbox One X anybody that want to disagree to me have to ask at least 3,8 bio people if they think the same?

Not the same. Graphics can be objectively measured. You can measure pixel counts, resolutions etc. You could factually say that one console does indeed have better graphics than another. You can't say one is objectively better overall however, just that you (or a number of other people) prefer one over the other, since a console's overall quality includes a number of subjective factors, the main one being game library.

Besides, even if you were talking about a subjective thing, people could just disagree. They wouldn't need to ask billions of people if they weren't making unsubstantiated claims about what "most people" think. It's quite easy for people to say "I prefer this" than "most people prefer this" with no support needed for the former...

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Vr is a nice addition to gaming, but it will grow alongside regular gaming without replacing it. Vr will never become gaming. It’s a way to game, but never, never everyone will want to play VR 100% of the time.

Never ever? Who knows what is in 50, 100 or even 1000 years. Never ever is completly random.



The definition of 'gimmick' as it is used in gaming discussions is the same as for 'hardcore' and 'casual'.

You like it = Hardcore, not a gimmick.
You don't like it = Casual, gimmick.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

That's taking it a bit too far, these days we can rarely speculate past a decade in most fields of tech. One things for sure, the traditional screen is going nowhere and while there are 2d screens there will be people who make and play games on them. Think of it akin to when games went from 2d side scrollers to the illusion of 3d space with polygons. It'll take a a generation to get there it the same way, a lot of tech is shifting in the same way it did back then and it's even harder to keep up with which direction it will go so 5 years to a decade is far enough to be looking forward if even that. 

So you think a scenario like in "ready player one" is impossible?

 

BTW: In terms of tech. Nobody is really using old mobile phones anymore. Got basically completly replaced by smartphones (or at elast 90+% so far) in just 10 years. So who knows.



VR uses motion controls, so that cant be a gimmick either then.
