It's not that I care about it going mainstream, it's just that these devs keep yammering on about how VR is going to "change the world." Didn't happen in the nineties, won't happen now.


Did you use VR in the nineties, the technology was not remotely advanced enough. Has a real chance now. It definitely will change the world in the future. This may not be the time it "sticks" it may be 90's VR (sales and influence wise, clearly not quality wise) all over again. But I wouldn't bet that way. And even if this "gen" of VR does fail its only a matter of time before VR sticks and blows up, IT IS the future only an idiot would argue otherwise.

Yes, because absolutely nothing in the world of tech has changed since the 90's *sarcasm*

The general consumer's perception of VR tech really hasn't changed at all, though. Old memories of shooting blocky pterodactyls with bullets that arc like rocks die hard. It's going to be very hard to change that.


Yes, and the state of the art in CG used to be the one color tank/cycle etc. models in Tron - your point? If someone is too dim to realize that tech changes/evolves then they probably wouldn't buy a VR headset anyway.

VR headsets aren't something that's seen as a "necessity" though, and PCs can be used for productive purposes. I just have the feeling that there are tons of overweight, unmarried, middle-aged guys with little or no interest in gaming who are waiting to pounce on this thing, solely because of the virtual sex applications.

Oh, hey, don't stop there. You left out some other pointless stereotypes like "sweaty" and " basement-dwelling", among others. Let's be as immature as possible and pretend adults in healthy relationships have no interest in erotic entertainment.

Spoilers: They do. Porn is the biggest entertainment industry around. Porn actually forges the direction of entertainment mediums sometimes. If you look up VHS vs Betamax (I know that's way before your time. Get to Wiki'ing), VHS won out the format war even though Betamax was a superior format. Why? The main reason was because porn was released on VHS.

Also, video games aren't a necessity. Dunno who told you they were.


I love the irony of someone calling out "losers" on the internet while creating pointless/inflammatory posts/threads which is as non-constructive as spending hours wanking it to porn.

I actually tried it, playing Dreadhalls, a horror, non-porn game. I'm pretty excited, at least.

You're not supposed to try it and you're not supposed to like it. You're supposed to dismiss it and call it a 90's fad. To hell with with your experience with it and enthusiasm!

Also, if you CAN use it for VR sex, why not? That would be kind of awesome. Any of those anime girls you like? I don't, but I know a lot of people here fantasize about that.


Japan's birth rates will hit the floor. Come to think of it, a lot of places' birth rates will hit the floor with this. Why bother with a real woman when you can have a waifu?


Death rate will surpass the birth rate. Food shortages will end. VR sex becomes the solution to world hunger!!

Just like the internet, once oculuss releases the pornography industry will be one of it's first supporters. The internet is doing just fine last time I checked.
