So Sony just announced "Project Morpheus" which is their attempt at entering the emerging Virtual Reality market(which previously was only occupied by the Oculus Rift).

I was wondering if people consider this to be an awesome innovation or just another gimmick like 3D?

Personally I think this is a great step forwards for gaming and I hope many games will make use of this emerging technology.

I think is an addition to gaming, since every VR headset now looks weird O__o, but it is pushing the gaming world indeed

These  headsets will add so much more to the table, I'm happy to  be a supporter of this new tech.

I could have sworn this thread, like this exact thread was made like months ago. Am I just crazy or?

I can see this was posted today, but it feels like I have seen this before.

I swear I've seen this before as well, though it was more like a week ago when  I stumbled across it.

You're not the only one. I think we've had our share of the VR threads, maybe one less a month could make it more unique.

 

On the thread. It's going to come and leave. I can't see myself playing with Oculus for more than 45 minutes to 1 hour, and neither does some of the people. VR won't give you any tactical advantage. There is already TrackIR, which already does what Oculus is doing, without the googles and less real head movement. It doesn't immerse you as much as Oculus does, but personally I could see myself using it for longer periods.

VR googles will just be another gimmick.

Every time people hears something new about VR this threads comes again. Third or fourth.

I see massive migraines being a prize for the masses when people start up on VR. So with that being said I think it will pass. Maybe I should start walking around with a football helmet (I think I've said that before) everyday to train my neck for VR gaming.

VR is a thing that has been hyped since the 80's, now it's possible to do it in a large scale. I think it's really really interesting. I expect to, in the relatively near future, play space sims and maybe shooters with VR it seems to be something that will add to the experience more than detract.


btw I'd like to complain about the repetition of this thread but I really did miss the other ones so it would just feel artificial.

Sony announced their VR headset today so I thought that it'd be a tad relevant, sorry not being sufficiently 'original'.

I don't see VR gaming winning over the mainstream market due to price and not having enough must have software

I don't like it, I like my screens and being able to determine what is and isn't real, next thing you know there going to throw out the controller and have games be controlled with you MIND. I like the way things are now.

Disappear within 10 years, seriously I give it less than 2.

 

First of all since you'r still using the regular peripherals it will never immerse you in the way a true VR simulation should.  Secondly just think of how much of a dick you'll seem wearing a box that's designed specifically to make it easier to ignore everybody!

It's a gimmick that failed in the ninetys and it's not gonna work now.

 

EDIT:  I just found out somthing else, the Morpheus (does that name sound desperate to anyone else?) instead of a series of gyros and accelerometers to track the position of the head like the Oculus Rift, their going to use.... Drum roll.... The camera!!  I'm a Sony fan but holy fuckballs is this stupid.

I'm fine with VR being given another chance, maybe this time it'll work out.

VR is a real thing we can uses being in a 3D surounding of a battle field is much more immersive then seeing it though a box, the fact we can look left and right  and move the camera to see which way things are going is much more immersive then anything we have so far.

I'd say it's not my thing because I don't want to game with the screen for my game strapped to my face. I want to game with the only thing being on my head is my headphones. Also, it seems like something like a VR headset which blocks out all light would be really bad for your eyes.

I see it as a gimmick and I've had that opinion since Oculus Rift was being discussed for the first time. Of course, there are very few games that I play where a VR setting would make sense.

I think it will be a great addition for gaming. What I've seen from the newest versions of the VR headset seems really cool and can help you to imerge into the universe even more (can be bad for some). I hope that the developers do not have to program everything for every seperate VR headset and it will be somehow compatible because otherwise it will get pretty rare that this will even happen

I don't think it'll be what people want from it in the tech we have for a long long time, Right now it seems very gimmicky to me personally. On a side note though wearing that kind of stuff must be crazy straining on the eyes that close lol.
