His hands are like “what the fuck is this shit.”
The Looming VR Revolution™ may not completely change the world, but it at least promises to change how we think about video games and porn.
The Unreal Engine will soon get VR content creation tools, and while it might sound an impractical feature at first, the live demo Epic Games shared looks quite interesting.
BUTTS: The VR Experience is a thing. Sure, you’ve experienced butts, but VR butts? This is the beginning of a new era.
If you can’t afford an Oculus Rift and a computer to run it, this Google Cardboard-compatible View-Master headset only requires your phone, and can be yours for just $19 (if you’re a Prime member, that is). That’s only about a dollar less than its previous low price, but this is still one of the best “premium” Google…
HTC and Valve’s Vive VR headset lets you physically move around in virtual reality. You can walk, run, jump, flail your arms, and all that good stuff. You can also be a shambling disaster zone.
I whirled around and plugged two perfectly placed shots into an enemy player. I was finally getting the hang of Vive VR shooter Hover Junkers. I was in the zone. I thought nobody could take me by surprise. Then I watched as another player slowly raised a gun to their head and pulled the trigger.
Valve and HTC’s virtual reality headset, the Vive, is almost here. It’s the one that tracks you while you move around, and it’s pretty damn cool. During a recent event, I got to play 12 of the games that it’ll launch with. Here is what they look like and what I looked like while playing them. Hint: not cool.
Palmer Luckey is currently slapping together a new gaming rig he thinks people might find “interesting.” He is not wrong.
Let’s say you’re interested in Oculus Rift. Maybe you’re like me, and you pre-ordered one to be safe. (You can cancel before it ships!) Thing is, Oculus Rift requires a beefy PC to work, but there’s a tool to let you know if you’re set.
Is this truly the Year of Virtual Reality? Or just the Year That A Lot Of VR Devices Come Out? Find out on today’s episode of Kotaku Splitscreen.
The first consumer model of the Oculus Rift will run you $599, the VR company announced today while opening up preorders for their fancy new headset.
The HTC Vive is in turnaround. After disappointing some people last year by setting the Vive launch date for well into 2016, the company’s back with a second generation developer model so good, it’ll win back our brains.
Oculus announced today that Kickstarter backers of the original Oculus Rift will receive the final hardware—for free! It’s a nice gesture towards virtual reality’s biggest evangelists the day before pre-orders officially begin for the Oculus Rift. The biggest problem? We still don’t know how much it’ll cost.
Oculus has announced that its Touch controllers won’t ship until the “second half” of 2016. The Oculus Rift itself, however, is apparently still on track for early next year. The delay is disappointing; the Touch devices were the highlight of my last VR demo.
When the Oculus Rift finally ships next year, it’ll come with a free copy of the impressive VR platformer, Lucky’s Tale. It remains one of the better VR demos I’ve played—the ability to look around the world with the headset while controlling the character was neat—but it remains to be seen how great of a platformer…
The Vive, Valve and HTC’s VR headset collaboration, will be out in April 2016. Like, for consumers to actually buy.
There’s a Ghost in the Shell “VR experience” that’s being worked on. It was at the Tokyo Game Show, where Toshi checked it out, but there was no footage available for everyone watching at home. Now there is, and what’s more, it’s interactive.
