RUMOR: Sony to Reveal PS4 VR Headset at TSG


I hope this rumor turns out to be true since I already preordered a PS4. That & I won't have to worry about not getting The Elder Scrolls Online with Oculus Rift Support if the PS4 version also has Virtual Reality Support.

I wonder if they will have Oculus Rift compatibility for the PS4, It would be a smart move if they could make their brand as a cheaper alternative to OR, while allowing it to work with the PS4. This way MS can't sign a contract with them to exclusively work for X1.

Very interesting. Oculus Rift has been looking very promising lately.. A PS4 version could be awesome. Instead of MS's idea of IllumiRoom to simulate peripheral vision for FPS games, you could literally have peripheral vision in a game. Now the only problem is the eye strain involved with OR and I'm guessing Sony's VR.. headaches:

Half-Life 2 sounded amazing from what he wrote, but you'll most likely have a headache after the first hour that won't go away.

 

oh.. and we have this:

The game is so realistic that players are warned not to lean on virutal objects. lmao! XD I can imagine myself leaning forward and spilling my glass of water all over my laptop. XD

Thats a shame. It looked like it was going to be integrated into the kinect initially. I was really excited for it too. It was probably the main thing that got me excited about the new Xbox. Maybe next, next gen. :(

Yeah, but imagine in a generation or two it might become so much more and better, almost Holodeck like. I see this eventually becoming just straight projection with no TV involved. I also see competition arising from the concept. Sony will definitely be in the fray. In fact within the next 4 generations of console gaming, I predict Nintendo becoming strictly handheld, keeping its titles 1st part on that platform while licensing it out 3rd party for consoles, and perhaps even taking the lead on this holo tech as a 3rd party peripheral, while Google enters the console gaming market with Driodsole! XD

I'd imagine Amazon's console would be totally digital and all purchases would be download only. I don't see them spending money on hard copies so they will have to wait for the right gen to put that into place or at least close to it. They could be the company that makes it the standard. I could see Amazon and Google teaming up for a console on this one. Google would fund the hardware, while Amazon would manage the store and acquiring the intellectual property licensing. They would split the profits evenly while each would do what they do best in contracting. I wouldn't be surprised if Google had Samsung build the hardware for them. Samsung is behind the tech of Illumiroom after all.

This headset should be interesting. If Sony allows third parties to make this accessory, then Oculous Rift could be a potential alternative to the official Sony brand. Along with Valve supposedly making their own VR hardware for their Steam Machines, Xbox One seems like the odd man out.

I skimmed through articles today that had Xbox One rumored to get its own VR. 

 

Now if you really want to talk about The Odd Man Out that would be the Wii U as VR would probably be hard to use with a mandatory touch screen.

I think this accessory is far better than Kinect or Move. Its geared toward gaming and not a gimmick. The only question is how much will it cost? Will there be tiered models? The allowance of 3rd party would be big, because Turtle Beach would make one with their headset quality included.

      This has been a busy summer. I'm almost looking forward to winter so I can get a break from all the lawn mowing and outside projects. Hopefully the snow blower I bought this year works good so I'll have alot of free time this winter to get caught up on things. When I've had free time I've been playing Final Fantasy X over the last 5 months and I've somehow finally hit 100 hours on it. Lol. Only took me about half a year.  I still didn't beat it yet but I'm at the end game stuff now with the monster arena and omega ruins.

      I got back from Ohio last night. My mom had a Remembrance Party in honor of my dad this last weekend. It was a really nice time. I'm glad I got to see so many people that knew my dad and talk to them about how he was a positive and/or great influence in their lives. The party was a bbq party too. My younger brother smoked 30 pounds of pulled pork and 20 pounds of bbq beef. I helped with the process. It was a great time.

      My neighbor next door is moving so he had a full house sale over the weekend. I lucked out and bought his snowblower for $150.  Its got some years of use on it, but hes kept it in amazing shape. A new gas one like this is around $800+. I hope it works great this next winter. It could save me all kinds of time shoveling.

      My PC came with a free month of Game Pass Ultimate. I decided to check out what I can play for free and found out how garbage the Xbox App for PC is. I downloaded Halo Infinite. The game wouldn't load. It would show the spartan insignia and then I'd just get a black screen. I never got to the title screen. Upon investigating this, its apparently a common issue. I tried all the "fixes" and uninstalled and re-installed the game twice. It never worked. So then I try to play The Ascent with a friend. The game worked fine solo, but we couldn't connection to each other. Again, I look it up and its once again.... a common issue. This time with no fix. We gave up and bought it on steam where it works without any issues. Needless to say, I'm cancelling Game Pass.
