Why cant you just get a VR headset for your PS4. VR is not going away because unlike 3D TVs it does allow for an entirely new immersive experience. 3D only added a bit more depth to the same old television format. It failed because it wasn't that impressive.
VR could fail like 3D TV since the main reason 3D on TV or with shutter glasses failed was because it required expensive high Frequency TV or monitors and everyone was fighting for their own standard, not unlike current companies are all doing VR their own way. The lack of a consistent standards could mean VR will die as a niche market just like 3D.[/quotemsg]
This is no different from VHS vs Betamax, IBM PC vs Apple PC. It's the cheapest option with the most acceptable quality that will win at least initially and unlike 3D there are already various price points. The most expensive such as Vive and Rift will probably come down to two thirds the price after a year to compete with the others. It can't be just a fad as it has too many benefits that a TV can't give and it seems most people that view it are sold simply on looking around 360, never mind games, conferencing, remote vehicle 360 views, medical, personal home cinema, virtual travelling.
