My first VR experience was on psvr, and similar. Low resolution, basic controls. But my god, it honestly felt like I was inside a sci fi spacecraft. My brother and I were blown away. Technology finally convinced us of something without smoke and mirrors...on low end hardware.

We went in imagining it as being like 3dtv 2.0 with the screen close to our face. Lol. No.
Yeah it's mental. I can't wait to see what Sony do with Psvr2, built from the ground up on a console built with VR in mind. I can see the SSD helping with stuff as well.

I can't wait to play a Skyrim like game in VR and just spend hours wondering about

no one is forcing you to comment
I reply to anyone who quotes me. Want me to stop commenting? Then stop quoting me :messenger_grinning_smiling:

So ironic that you cannot follow your own advice.
Can you provide an example of me telling VR fans that they can't continue to enjoy it?

My entire argument in this thread is that some people can't handle it due to health, so it will probably remain an enthusiast device. I never once said that fans should not still be able to have it.

Yet you tell me to leave you in peace, hypocrite much? If you want to be left alone don't comment.

Your entire argument is arguing for arguings sake. No one here is dissagreeing with you yet you still like keep saying it like a Karen.

I can guarantee you that what I said before was that there are ways in which a virtual bar is better. There is no way I would say a virtual bar is universally better for everyone.
This is nothing what you said back then. You even dismissed the real one.
Here is your take:



Really, that in the end are the "only" benefits?! But this is the difference between the real and the virtual!!!

Because of that that I think you are trolling everyone. No problem to like to much something, but this...






why do I keep reiterating hard science in this thread?

Imagine it's 2030. You wake up, put on your AR glasses, walk the dog and your virtual pikachu in a meadow of endless flowers which is actually just your dull local field area. You get back home and feel like gaming.

A portal perpetually exists in your gaming area thanks to the AR glasses - it shows a live feed of your virtual house. You simply walk through the portal in real life and suddenly you're in VR as these double as VR glasses. All you had to do was literally walk into your room. You sit on your virtual couch, which is automatically aligned with your real couch. You snap your fingers and get transported to your private IMAX theater that feels as good as the real thing. You play some non-VR games on this 900 inch display that beats any setup possible in reality.

Then you want to play a VR game, so you just continue sitting on your couch and play your VR game like that - and when you reach a calming area in the game, it's more relaxing than it ever could on a 2D display.

See how frictionless the future will be? It will be easier than how you game today even in VR.
When it gets to that point I’m interested!

Okay, so this is more about clubs than bars. Yes, I would stand by that statement, and I clearly said that reality has benefits. I never said that virtual clubs are universally better, did I?

It is honestly true though. Can you really argue that a virtual club where literally anything is possible is not going to somehow make a real club feel dull in comparison? People will still go to real clubs - for those unique real benefits, but a virtual club can be more transcendental and out of the realms of normality.

Real clubs are better in some ways. Virtual clubs are better in many other ways.

The bold is not only a lie but a factually impossible thing.
Yes, you can't exactly make a virtual wish to live for 5000 years. My point is that you can do anything within the context of a virtual world because there are no physical laws that can't be broken. You can even change the perception of your own biology. IE: You could embody an avatar with four arms, be the size of a mouse or a skyscraper, have a torso made of a black hole, hair made of fire etc.

Can you actually challenge my claim apart from the semantics?

Yep, we've found our resident flat-earther guys. The irony of a brainwashed individual thinking others are brainwashed.

I barely watch TV, and I don't even use mainstream media for news; I rely entirely on scientific papers, studies, people who report those, and a little thing called logic that is solely missing from this thread.
Go research blue led light radiation then you sausage. Permanent retina damage.
Huh? I'm not claiming to be an expert. I actually didn't even know much about eye damage until you mentioned it. Just mentioned my personal experience. You come off as really aggressive sometimes.

And apparently VR color displays aren't that big at all for the military. Some of the most strict vision requirements in the world and they're using full-color displays.

Well any way blue light radiation is a big deal.
Fighter pilots have green heads up display in their helmets and cockpits because green light is the least stressful on the eyes.
The military don't want to waste millions of £ on training a fighter pilot for them to loose their sight from a full colour hud.
Blue light radiation eye damage is also accumulative over time. Like being exposed to radiation increases the risk of cancer over time.

I never challenged this. I said that VR is barely any worse than normal displays because blue light hits your eyes very easily even without wearing a headset.

If this concerns you, use a filter.

I'm not saying your wrong but I did what you asked and...

So why does blue light get such a bad rap? First off, there has been some speculation that blue light exposure can cause macular degeneration, but the claims have been misleading. It would take very high amounts of exposure to lead to macular degeneration and it would actually be more likely caused by sun exposure than your smartphone. Furthermore, the risks of macular degeneration are higher from aging, smoking, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, and being overweight.

Now go research blue LED light damage.
How about you do it, I already did your research for you and it came back against your argument. If you want us to see it you do the research and show us, but be sure to get a recent article not some years old out of date one, thanks.

While they're at it, I'd love to see them bring back some research on why no masks are better than masks.

this guy was right. it's not the future of gaming for his audience - which is comprised of flatheads happy to push buttons in front of a tv just as they've doing it their whole life. They're super happy to play GTA V for the 3rd generation straight or to save Princess Peach for the ompth time (even she can't stand it anymore, according to Odyssey)

still, I thank him for the VR ports for Borderlands 2 and LA Noire and the upcoming AAA VR project from Rockstar he seemingly forgot about. Guess not wasting money on these means the ports turned a profit, which is good. May more come up.
