Weâ€™re completely wrong with our price predictions at the following link.
Consider this my stance on VR. Itâ€™s expensive. Of course it is. Itâ€™s the first iteration of it and, like all firsts when it comes to new technology, itâ€™s going to be priced exceptionally high. Blu-Ray players were so high getting an original PS3 at $600 was a DEAL! It was the cheapest you could get a BR player and it played games. Jackpot!! So yeah, itâ€™ll start high and the price will come down.
VR is also here to stay. As much time (which isnâ€™t too much, but enough) as Iâ€™ve spent with it, it has drawn me in hook, line, and sinker. I have tried the Vive with the controllers, the Rift with the controllers, and the Playstation VR (Morpheus model). Havenâ€™t had a single bad experience with any of them in fact, I wanted more. Devs are on board as well with most saying theyâ€™re excited for what VR brings to the table. Most of the criticism I hear about VR come from people who just havenâ€™t tried it yet. And thatâ€™s the biggest problem with VR, outside of the high price of entry at the moment for most people, is that itâ€™s extremely hard to describe to people without actually having them experience the technology. It really does fit the cliche of â€œyou have to see it to believe it.â€
