#13: Glad the stripper pole in my living room will have more use.

Now with multiple contenders in the VR space, what incentives do developers have to fork their development in either path?

Assuming a AAA game for the masses, there's want for parity between consoles and PC as a base, and then further forking for PC in general, then VR / specific to which VR device is in play? Is this even feasible? Sounds like a big mess and 6 months of patching after release to me.

Have we reached the point of $120 video games if VR really takes off?

Let's be honest, if the Porn industry takes the initiative here, it'll be a well developed technology.

It doesn't seem too unrealistic that VR games could be developed for all VR systems, and it'd be wiser for companies to try and get some open source software that can be used for both.

Having single purpose limited scope hardware never pays off.

Having a single purpose limited scope comment on a news article does pay off. Don't want to comment / write a book about all possible uses :)

Porn industry barely knows how to do a steady pan from left to right, or really anything to do with sound. Good luck to them on their exploration into the world of VR. They might put a lot of effort into a single well edited clip to give the illusion that they know what they are doing, but that'll just be bait followed by disappointment to those looking for that.

There may just be another product that functions as a simple monitor for those folks.
 


If they had like those 360 globe cameras that google cars use it might work.
