How come nobody talks about VR anymore?
>>
>>323682392

Barely any marketing/showcasing and the price tag is big enough to scare most people.
>>
>>323682497
But there was a ton of showcasing during CES 2015 and the videos are all over tech sites and youtube.
>>
I assume once the preorders were done they had no reason to shill on here. Now its a waiting game to see ifthe technology will stick.
>>
>>323683349
But there were so many game reveals over the past days and nobody posted anything on /v/.
>>
>>323683532

Ibdont really care about the machine, we can only hope people came to their senses about a machine designed to fuck up your eyes and make you nauseous

The price point killed the hype and any hope of wide adoption or even development.

No buyers = no devs = shortlived fad = shit.
>>
I got my neet ass to work for a year and saved quite a bit of money... will I be throwing it in the trash if I buy either the Vive or Rift when they are released?
>>
>>323684165

You have the possibility of throwing it in the trash certainly. I'd wait till both are released and then buy.

Personally, I preordered the Oculus for June (and won't need to pay till June). If the Vive comes out in April and is better, I can just cancel my preorder. If the Vive is shit and people report in March that their Oculus is great, I'll stick with my preorder. If they're both shit, I cancel my preorder and spend it on something else.
>>
>>323684839
Good, good. Which are your more excited for, masturbation to VR waifu or playing VR games?
>>
>>323684983

The games definitely. I've been doing nothing but masturbate to VR porn the last half year (with the DK2), but have not had anything good to play on it.
>>
>>323685061
What kind of VR porn? Real life VR porn videos or VR porn games? If the latter, what kinds?
>>
>>323685168

Been playing all kinds of Illusion games on it (a lot of the newer ones got VR patches like Sexy Beach Premium Resort). Runs like ass though unless you got a good computer since Japs can't into optimization (and also use Unity).
>>
because it's dead
>>
>>323684165
I would at least wait until they are out and see what everyone thinks. I love my DK2, but i'm waiting to see how many games will have decent support before i buy the consumer version.

>>323685424

It works with the original DK1 by using the VorpX drivers. Not sure if it works on DK2 though.
>>
Why does it seem like everybody on /v/ owns DK2s? How many of those did they ship?
>>
Poor fags thought it was gonna cost 300 dollars which is as much as they can muster for years of minimum wage labor.
>>
>>323685689

Roughly 60k I think.

Easy to miss them when you've never posted before.

You can save 600 bucks in a few months of living thriftily on minimum wage. You can't save that amount on government neetbux, which is what most of the poorfags on /v/ are living on.
>>
>>323682392
It's been thorughly discussed in the past week. There's nothing left to talk about.

What's there to talk about? Next stop is Rift shipment and actual feedback or Vive price reveal.

got a dk1, cant wait for cv1, got enough money for a high end gaming rig and an occulus/vive

gotta love my country, they give me enough schizo neet bucks to actually afford this shit

Ill wait for vive to come out, read the reviews and comparisons and then decide what to buy, mostly cause oculus doesn't ship to my country, otherwise I would have preordered

Now make it june/july already godammit, I can't even play normal games anymore since I've experienced the immersion of the rift. shits awesome yo

And yet when you say that you don't like it based on the videos, a bunch of assholes tell you that your opinion doesn't count because you haven't tried VR for real yet, but I'd rather buy a 580 TI than a Vive/Oculus any day.
>>
>>323687231
>I know exactly what it's like! I used a virtual boy!
So you basically have no fucking clue why people that have tried older VR and compare it to the new VR are so hyped?

If you were smarter than a fucking retard, you'd stop talking about shit you don't know. You'd know that a "3D tv" strapped to your face only makes people motion sick.

I was unaware that eating chilled hog feces was something you so adamantly defend. What got you into that? Did you diss it too before trying it?

Fuck. The REAL fucking comparison is saying something like:

one of my best buddies is a doctor, he says he's never met a turk that isn't on disability or doesn't want to get on neetbux so we definitely have too many sandniggers exploiting the system, and there's talk of reducing my neetbux, mostly cause of lazy turks, but meh, I'm probably more lazy than any sandnignog so I shouldn't be talking

It's ok, little one. It comes out this year. This is an argument that doesn't need to be happening, so we'll end this here. The coming months will be the best teachers of this particular lesson.

>I better call this argument quits cause I got no proof

Just saying "You'll see I am right in the future!" is moot since I've got the DK2 and it's already great fun,

You might wanna spend 5 seconds on google next time before posting your opinion as fact. There were a lot of people in the past that thought cars were shit and would never replace horses, especially when they just started out with steam engine vehicles.

You're right.

>>323687695
>I have no idea what personal experience is
I like it because I've tried it.

You've just got shit for brains. If you were smart enough, I would try to reason with you, explaining that "The fucking marketing isn't working if people have to keep saying 'you have to try it to appreciate it' because the marketing should make someone appreciate it before they try it"

But that wouldn't make sense to someone with shit for brains, so I don't know if I should even bother.

I don't think there's enough people excited for it now for the general to survive. Maybe when the Rift and Vive are released. There is always talk about creating a DOA5 general on /vg/ whenever a thread is made on /v/ but everybody goes into the thread, jerks off and leaves and the general never gets made. I'm actually excited for a game with shamelessly big tits and sexualised women for VR. Please make it happen Japan, you're my only hope.

It's because nobody wants to think about these few facts:

A) They don't have it right now
B) They are stuck in the past right now
C) Their 50 1080p screens hurt to look at
D) Their current games suck they feel fake
E) They have money right now but they can't spend it
F) In the future they will have no money
G) In the future they will have gold coins
H) In the future they will be playing WOW in 3D
I) In the future everything will smell bad
J) In the future the power company will shut off your power for not paying
K) In the future you will come out of your 3D WOW to find that your cat is dead, you have been shitting on yourself for months, and are skinny and frail, will not be able to get out of your chair, your hands and everything around you are covered in hotpocket debris

you will have nowhere to live, nowhere to work, your VR system will be last-gen and worth nothing. you will be cold and alone. you will try but fail to kill yourself four times. you will ask others to help you but it's illegal where you live so everyone glares when you ask.

you still smell like shit and you eat only enough to get you to tomorrow. the only time in your life that you appreciate is when you're asleep... it's hard to sleep under bridges and on doorsteps.

>Porn drives everything in consumer technology.

This is bullshit, always has been. Porn never conjures up any meaningful technology nor does porn being able to utilize any particular piece of technology guarantee it any sort of success.

The porn industry is not quite as big as people think. To put things in perspective, the toys for pet dogs industry is larger than the porn industry.

It'll be pointless for gaming as long as there's no killer apps. I really can't think of any kind of depth it could add to gameplay. I'm more excited to use it for events like concerts and sports.
Also it's just not as practical as a regular monitor.

In principle, it's more practical. In practice, the pixel density is still quite a few magnitudes off being able to use it as a virtual monitor, 4k is the baseline for being able to read any particular amount of text comfortably and it'll probably be a while until we get there.

Rift re-purposes a lot of technology from smartphones like gyros and the screens, they are refined for VR but it's all true and tested technology.
The concept of headtracking VR is nothing new either, in the 90's it was all the rage in arcades even if it was pretty crude.

Rift is merely a refinement of these concepts.
