What needs to change to get you interested in VR Gaming?

Cheaper devices, more powerful hardware, lighter or different headwear / glasses, better controllers and / or tracking, avatars with legs & feet Grin, reduced motion sickness, more games that interest you, etc?

I've been in the industry for a number of years. I remember watching people try Egghead Shred in VR at SIGGRAPH... 'must have been 30 years ago. Heck, even I thought VR Gaming would go mainstream by 2018-2020. Yet, although gamers have access to the Quest, Pico, Vive, etc. VR headsets and controllers, I think there's still a lot of resistance to VR Gaming. Any thoughts?

  • Safe play zones or VR treadmills.

    if I had a decent size level back yard, 30’ x 30’ would suffice, or there was a workable VR 360 degree treadmill for indoor use. These two options would increase my VR usage from casual (twice monthly) to daily.

    I have a Rift S, and PS 4 headset, but barely use them. I thought about buying the Oculus Quest 3, but I would still be limited by the same 10’ x 8’ living room space.

  • Bring the cost of entry way down. Release more dedicated VR AAA games. Also, make it more comfortable for those with glasses.

    Thanks for your feedback, Bruce Thumbsup  I'm happy you brought this topic up - it's a good one!

  • My phisiology would need to change. VR makes me nauseous & gives me vertigo with headaches. 

  • Depending on the game, it happens to me too... especially virtual roller coasters.. lol  Roller coaster

  • Thanks, Jeremy!  I agree. Cost of entry has always been an issue. Facebook / Meta seemed to get it pretty low with the Quest 2, but with the trade-off of user privacy... requiring a Facebook account to use (now a Meta account). I think ByteDance requires something similar for its Pico users. When Meta changed the Facebook account requirement, it increased the price of the Quest 2.

  • Quality content game.

  • I guess more triple A games . Big titles

  • Make more affordable and a decent specs
