Season 10, Episode 08

We’re completely wrong with our price predictions at the following link.

Consider this my stance on VR. It’s expensive. Of course it is. It’s the first iteration of it and, like all firsts when it comes to new technology, it’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, it’ll start high and the price will come down.

VR is also here to stay. As much time (which isn’t too much, but enough) as I’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). Haven’t had a single bad experience with any of them in fact, I wanted more. Devs are on board as well with most saying they’re excited for what VR brings to the table. Most of the criticism I hear about VR come from people who just haven’t tried it yet. And that’s the biggest problem with VR, outside of the high price of entry at the moment for most people, is that it’s extremely hard to describe to people without actually having them experience the technology. It really does fit the cliche of “you have to see it to believe it.”
