It turns out that not too many PCs are currently capable of running VR from Oculus Rift and HTC Vive while over 40 million PS4's can handle PlayStation VR.
This is all well and good but where exactly does this 20m figure come from? It seems to have been plucked from midair with nothing backing it up whatsoever.
Did you know there are are only 20m PC machines capable of VR? No. Please actually explain it.
I really don't see VR taking off just now, i enjoyed the first hours of the time i got to spend with OCULUS, but then it got tiring for me.
I was going through the amazon and i saw the ps vr and clicked to see its price and got their a video and saw how amazing that was. The ps vr was amazing. I think its for professional gamers. But it is more expensive than ps4. Being highrated and its amazing design i dont think oculus can beat it.
It's not will, and it never was will. People writing these articles don't realize that so many of those people that bought those consoles got them to play Destiny, Call of Duty, and Madden/FIFA. These are not the kind of people that are going to put another 500 dollars into buying a face monitor when sitting on the couch after a long day of work is much more appealing.
On the other end of the spectrum, very few people are going to buy Oculus or Vive because they're too expensive coupled with various other things. Games aren't there. Everything is just a glorified tech demo. The biggest game people are trying to shill VR with is Elite Dangerous and that game is an mediocre experience at best (I should know, I've put hundreds of hours into it). Not to mention all three of these devices are still giant scuba diver quality masks. The sensation of first putting one of these headsets was almost the same as my diving mask. Not exactly a comfort.
