It never caught on in the 80's.

It never caught on the in 90's.

People forgot about it for an entire decade.

The 3D gimmick failed to catch on so now they're trying to force VR on us.

It won't catch on, it'll be niche as fuck and they'll move on to something else.

I hope it's Battleship playing sex-robots.

Demand fuels innovation.

There is little to no demand for VR, they're hoping it'll catch on if they dump enough money into subsidizing it and marketing.

Lots of good ideas and superior tech fail.

Why VR won't catch on:

Because people outside of it can't interact with people inside of it. Unlike a game of Mario on the NES where the whole family can watch and "play along" ('Jump!' 'Try hitting this block!') VR is a solo activity
>>
>>322790939
It only has two routes to take.

1. VR ends up a gimmick that does not catch on and dies out just as quickly.

or

2. VR isn't a gimmick and catches on so much that it becomes everywhere, and gets watered down and casualized to the point that everyone starts to hate it.

So either way, what people actually want out of VR, they won't get it.

It IS the next step. When I was a kid everyone dreamed about VR even back then, it'll always be a human fantasy to walk in a virtual world and VR is the realization of that. Now the tech might not be quite there yet, but the recent efforts are by far the best that have been made to establish the technology. Think any other tech, the PC took more than a decade to take off...The newest model of OR in 10 years or so will probably be closer to what it's supposed to be.

Also, can't forget that PSVR exists, so the price will be reasonable (~$1000 for a PS4 and PSVR together, whereas PC+Rift or PC+Vive is ~$1500 USD)

3D TV's and monitors is gimmicky. VR very seriously isn't. It's something you have to try. Just get a demo from a friend once they have a Rift, or go to CES or some other show/con that Oculus will be at.

Just like the iPhone created its own demand, VR is going to catch on very very quickly once consumer devices start getting in people's hands in the next month or two.

>>322798919
>People think current VR is just strappiung a monitor to your head.
There is a lot of hardware and software complexity that makes VR as lot more than just strapping a screen to your head.

It tracks your head with zero latency (well, near-zero and then adjust the rendered image with the most recent motion data, which is actually works really well) in 3d space. The lenses warp the screens to make them take up a more of your FOV, then software pre-warps the image to correct for that warping.

Result: brain believes what you're seeing is basically real (if you're scared or heights IRL, expect that feeling in VR. Ditto for claustrophobia, horror games, etc, it's amplified in VR compared to a normal monitor game)

The entire sound pipeline is also handled by Oculus software, so things you hear in the game world actually sound like they're coming from those object. Plus, due to the complex HRTF stuff they're doing, you don't just have "surround" audio, you have perfect surround including vertical spacialization as well. Binaural audio in VR is insane. Put on some heaphones and look at one of the Technolust preview videos.

So yes, "strapping a monitor to your head" is VR. What, you expect someone to come out with a brain plug first? This isn't the matrix.

this
>>
>>322796365
>>322799197

images adjusted to the awareness of your own body motion should be more than enough to give a good feeling of presence, all limitations considered. The mind is a very malleable thing and most of what you consider reality is just generated in the brain.

>>322799789
So it's a monitor that you can plug headphones into.

I don't like VR porn at the moment. I tried that shit out on my Gear VR and my body just started acting on its own. Like, the actresses weren't even very hot but my dick got hard against my will because my brain thought it was in a situation where I could biologically reproduce. I don't feel aroused by the content but for some reason my body just reacts to it. It's so fucking weird. I don't like it.

>>322799990
No, it has headphones, a DAC built in to the headset, and it's powered by a custom audio spacilization SDK (Oculus Audio SDK).

Plus on normal monitors you don't get shit like "time-warp" to reduce input latency, high-contrast OLED screens, and monitors don't take up 100+ degrees of your field of view. Plus there's isn't software just used for tracking a monitor in space, right now the only support for something even remotely close is the VR SDKs. Also, all tracking is one-to-one. There's no extrapolation of "user looks 10-degrees to the right, the in-game camera moves 20" like track-ir.

I'm not sure what you want besides a spinal plug. Our eyes see two 2D images and out head moves. Rift and Vive are designed to account for that more perfectly than any other shitty VR system before them.

Even in the future, can you really imagine yourself doing the movements like those seen in Assassin's Creed? How about a game like Farcry or Skyrim and having to actually walk/run everywhere. You'd get tired in less than 20 minutes.
The only solution would be to make games even easier and simple than they already are.
These VR goggles are a gimmick for gaming, people will have their little honeymoon with it like the Wii and Wii-mote but after the novelty wears out it'll be the Kinect and PS-move all over again.
Although i do think there will be a longer dedicated fanbase to it than motion controls had.

Without being able to have your entire being in virtual reality and only your vision, it is a gimmick, because you have to know the buttons on a controller in order to play it well as well as counterbalance looking and turning the character.

VR has plenty of interesting applications and can be quite the revolution, but not in videogames. As far as videogames go it will never be anything more than a gimmick that spawns a few interesting games.

I see the mass-interest in VR among gamers as a sort of acknowledgement that the industry has permanently gone to shit and will never get better, and VR is seen as a way to escape from that. Substitute new tech for good game design.

Also a built-in mic.

It's a clean-looking conglomerate of current and specially developed technologies and software to make a good gaming and social experience. The fact is, you can't just strap a screen to your face and call it good. You need lots of other little bits of tech, and libraries that pull every little piece together flawlessly. Beyond that, you need games and software that runs on the device.

The Rift and Vive took a shit-ton of work and R&D to get right. Your trivialization ignores how much insane effort and manpower it took to get to this stage.

you are right, [your favorite niche game that sold like shit] must be shit too

I'm personally really hyped for the inevitable VR zbrush. RIght now Oculus has a similar application though it seems to be the MS Paint of VR sculpting.

Congrats you've pretty much described r&d for everything on this planet. That doesn't mean it's going to be more than a gimmick.

This is where it's actually going to be at. Any other interface will be so completely obsolete as to be laughable. Just give us another 10 years to make the tech more practical and efficient, and 10 more to make it accessible to the masses without scary Matrix style brain jacks.

You must have a weak neck. You wouldn't be much fun at the go-kart track.

I played through entirety of Doom 3 in VR and I never had any issues with neck pain

you would have to be medically disabled to have neck pain from VR gaming, how can you even look around in real life?

As some who tried the Crescent Bay prototype at CES last year, it's really fucking light. And yes, they had me whip my head around once or twice during the demo (throwing a rubber duck behind me that I didn't see, hear it land behind me, whipped my head around to see it, no discomfort whatsoever)
>>
>>322804281
That's all it'll have anon. All flash but no substance with the limited control options you can't really make anything interesting with it aside from VNs and such.
>>
>he unironically believes room-scale+motion control is not a gimmick, and actually the next step for VR
>>
>>322804795
And all manner of cockpit games. And platformers (it comes with Lucky's Tale). And FPS once motion controllers are out (Bullet Train).
>>
>>322804635

consumer friendly does not mean that everyone and their dog can run it, VR obviously targets higher end range of consumers

Remember when phone watches were basically only available to turbonerds?
Now every soccermom on the block has a smartwatch.

Whoops. Was for
>>322804635
>>
>>322805004

but it is

motion control and room scale is a natural fit for VR, one of the first things everyone does in VR is look for their hands and try to touch objects or walk around
>>
>>322805084
So it's not consumer friendly then. Especially since Sony wants in on this action too.
>>
>>322804281
The problem for non-believers is that nobody's fucking tried it.

Everyone who's put on a Rift or Vive in the past year or so has had great things to say about the tech.

We didn't have the tech to make it work in the 90s. Now we're just barely getting to the point where enthusiasts have desktop computers powerful enough to run these headsets at 1080p/90FPS per eye.

It's really impossible to accurately portray the experience of being in VR without actually experiencing it. Presence is something that has to be felt to be believed.

Omnitreadmills are more viable than asking people to clear a big enough space in their houses to use room-scale.
Maybe eventually, but not for a while yet.

Smartwatches are a gimmick anon. Apple Watch is doing awful across the globe. If Apple can't even market a product you know it's dead in the water.
>>
>>322805163
>Now every soccermom on the block has a smartwatch
Not him but I've never seen a soccermom with one. They're one of the few that would most likely reject it outright.
Anyway it's still a turbonerd thing.
>>
>>322805531
>counting platform-exclusive shit like Rock Band
>>
>>322805121
Aside from the bundled games? Edge Of Nowhere looks tight, and Minecraft in VR sounds fantastic (the sense of scale just isn't there on a monitor). Also Technolust looks really interesting and gives me crazy bladerunner vibes.

>>322805202
This is what I see as well. VR isn't just 3D on your head. It's a new entertainment medium that plays off a lot of what games have already been doing but making it a step closer to real.
>>
>>322796081
I even remember an arcade game which had a similar gimmick long before the Oculust Rift appeared where you had to control a turret and turned around shooting various enemies. I liked it very much and I regret not having played more ;_;
>>
>>322805830
I'm pretty hyped for those too. But in addition, I am fully convinced The Climb will be a great game, after having tried out the Back to Dinosaur Island 2 demo (with an xbox controller no less). Also the best VR graphics I've seen till date.
>>
>>322806187
Did it have a huge suspended helmet thing? One of the theaters in my town used to have that but it never works. The FOV was shit anyways, wasn't really worth playing when it did work IMO.
>>
>>322805780
>exclusive
Once both technologies get off the ground, you can start crying about exclusives - but it really makes no sense to expect developers to work with two completely different runtime environments without any unified standards, especially when the tech is so new and entirely untested, and studios are being funded by either Oculus or Valve specifically
Even then, they aren't making developers sign exclusivity contracts saying "YOU CAN ONLY DEVELOP FOR RIFT/VIVE AND IF YOU DON'T WE WILL SUE" or anything like that. All they've done is give them funding and devkits. A lot of these games are being developed in-house, as well.

>>322806187
>>322806509
Shit, I remember that thing. It wasn't even 3D, it just had a little screen in it. I remember it being super clunky, although it was cool at the time.

Do you live in a poor non-state like Texas? Cause that shits everywhere here in Florida, and it's.. Florida.

>>322805723
But the userbase of smartwatches has increased incredibly from what it was not 5 years ago.
I dont understand how someone can live through the nineties / early 00's and not see that even small userbases grow huge over time as prices drop and support increases.
