Most gaming enthusiasts agree that the future of gaming world lies in Virtual Reality. And they also believe that once the musicians, artists and directors come to begin using VR, it’s going to expand more and provide new direction to the VR world. But then what’s going to happen next? You may ask.
Virtual Reality has at the moment become a hot trend as far as technology is concerned. Everyone from Google to Sony have now jumped into the VR market. And what’s more, some new products are expected to be in the market very soon. And with all this hype, there’s no denying the fact that Virtual Reality is going to have a significant impact on the way we game
VIrtual Reality, so far, has mostly focused on RPGs plus Simulation games. However, there are new styles of VR gaming that are added every single month. So, games such as The Climb are now introducing a whole new gameplay style with the assistance of VR. This new technology, as has been predicted, will not be limited much longer to specific genres.
With Virtual Reality, unlike traditional gaming, you may strap on a headset, and enter the world of the game. It’s amazingly immersive as well as futuristic. However, the systems are in their infant stage, still. Game lovers must be hooked into a computer and companies have not quite mastered the integration of virtual controllers into the devices. Even though the systems still are not completely perfect, they are quite amazing for a technology which is still very young.
Concerning the products, Oculus Rift established a reputation as among the first and most popular or well known systems. But this is not going to be the case any more, for different competition are emerging. For instance, Sony is almost dropping their PlayStation VR that is now going to incorporate VR console gaming plus all their compatible games. Sony’s PlayStation VR headset is going to link or connect to your PS4 and you’ll be able to utilize it together with the dualshock controller. It is combining all the best components of console gaming and VR, and it is going to revolutionize the gaming world when it lives up to this sort of expectation.
And there are also cheaper and less impressive headsets available. For example, Google Cardboard is literally a headset made of cardboard. You may mount your phone to the front, and watch your video with 360 degrees of range. Well, this is not entirely Virtual Reality gaming, but then what can you really expect from just $15 cardboard headset?
There was massive hype surrounding Oculus Rift when it first established as part of a 2012 Kickstarter campaign. However, do you know that some of that excitement has died down over the last few years that it took to develop the headset? With all the products that are about to hit the market plus several newly compatible games, VR is again picking up speed. Therefore, the future is quite looking bright for Virtual Reality gaming. Since it was finally released, Octopus Rift has been receiving several positive reviews as far as their first generation of a system is concerned. Many individuals have been going crazy over the immersive gameplay.
Even though the headsets are still expensive, with Oculus Rift selling at $500, while Sony’s PlayStation VR is going to retail at $400 when it finally hits the market, the prices are going to possibly go down as both the competition and technology grow. However, as things still stand now, this is an expensive investment for casual gamer.
But then good things don’t come cheap. What’s been your gaming experience? Perhaps you’re more than willing to pay a high cost for improved gameplay.
