Microsoft is dropping VR plans on Xbox

Recommended Posts

This is for the best, VR is still in its infacy and they have more important things to focus on.

Nope. It's the superior way to play. 

 

Naysayers will all be owned down the line. Fact.

It makes sense because Microsoft can't even make games for the main console, where would they even begin with making VR games?

 

And, its not like they can just transfer over games to VR.

 

For example, if you play Halo in VR, you move way too fast.  You'd need to submerge yourself in a 20ft deep pool with a VR helmet to accurately recreate Halo's gameplay.

If the next-gen XBox has no VR, PS5 beomes so much more appealing in comparison. XBox will miss a HUGE library of games.

It's not.  VR is going to continue to be developed as it has massively important applications in healthcare, engineering, aviation, architecture, product design, and even law enforcement.  

 

The tech is going to come down in price and go up in quality.  Gaming companies aren't going to have to develop this shit alone like with the kinect garbage.  It's here to stay.

 

That being said, I havent yet played a VR game and don't have any desire to do so.

They had a game in development, but ultimately shelved it because it was too realistic.  Turns out waiting for exclusives isn't any more exciting in a VR game than it is in real life.

VR is not in its infancy.

 

It's been around since the 90's. The fact of the matter is that nobody wants to put boxes on their heads.

Imagine if they did try to make VR games.  They would be covering the same ground Atari did the mid 90s.  
 

Struggle to release decent games for the Jaguar at the same time while working on the Jaguar VR device.  

 

Young gamers today don't realize everything they are thinking is new has been tried and flopped 2 decades ago.  Older people been there and done that, and are wiser not to fall for cheap gimmicks . 

 

Look at gamers buying up FMV re-releases.

my point is I challenged you to a 1 on 1 fight in either Mortal Kombat, Tekken or Virtua Fighter, do you accept the challenge?
