VR Analysis Update (part 2)
I want to address some of the issues with VR that still have some concerned. Price is one thing that deters a lot of people, and it is expensive. The Sony PSVR is $400 for the headset alone. You also need a camera, and the experience is seriously lacking without two "Move" controllers. You can get the headset and all this, plus a collection of games called "VR Worlds" for $500. It's obviously not a cheap entry fee into virtual reality, and many doubt it will be worth the experience--until they've tried it. The reason the system is selling well so far is because people have been blown away by the experience and the amazing potential of this new technology. The reason I haven't regretted buying it is because I, like so many others, have faith in the incredible possibilities that VR brings to gaming and entertainment in general. I can't wait to see what they do with it next! Update: At E3 it was just announced that Bethesda Game Studios is bringing "Skyrim" to VR! It looks amazing!
