HTC Stand alone VR headset coming

HTC Stand alone VR headset coming

HTC is making a VR headset that doesn’t use a phone or a PC

virtual reality video games

The new VR headset will be called HTC Vive Focus. HTC Vive focus will have a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 to power the experience. The VR headset will be robust compared to smartphones. The strongest phone that uses the Snapdragon 835 is the Note 8, so the headset will be pretty powerful compared to other smartphones.

Thanks to LetsGoDigital we have learned the name of the headset. It will be called HTC Vive Focus.

HTC has registered the headset for the US and EU, and it will probably be announced soon. The headset uses “WorldSense” to make sure you don’t hit something while playing it. The headset tracks motion too. WorldSense is a cool technology, and a lot of gamers will want to try it out. 

 

Note that the headset will not compete with the HTC Vive and it will not be able to play coll VR games on Steam, Google Play will power the headset. The headset will deliver a better experience than the Google cardboard, but it will not be the same as HTC Vive or PS VR. It is the first VR headset that doesn’t require anything.

Switch VR probably wouldn’t happen

During Variety‘s Entertainment and Tech, Summit Nintendo commented on VR

Nintendo VR

 

AT Variety’s Entertainment and Tech Summit Nintendo said, “problem with VR is that there aren’t a lot of experiences that are truly fun.” Variety reports, the company may consider the technology in the future. Most Switch fans definitely want VR Switch, but it seems like Nintendo isn’t going to do it. We have seen many leaks about Switch VR, but none of them seemed legit. 

 

Nintendo was trying to do VR on the Switch before it launched but they had some problems. Earlier this year Nintendo said, “If we are able to resolve the issues with playing [VR] comfortably for long hours, we will support it.” 

 

VR is amazing, and a lot of Switch fans want to see Switch VR. PS 4 has VR with good games so we don’t know why Nintendo wouldn’t do it. A lot of people say the Switch can’t handle VR but Nintendo could make something like google cardboard to use VR. Some people think Nintendo’s VR head set will work with a USB cable and to use it you have to plug it in the Switch while it is docked. If Nintendo releases a VR headset, it wouldn’t have the same quality as PS VR or HTC Vive, but it will be good. Nowadays a lot of people want VR and if Nintendo makes a good VR experience Switch sales will definitely go up.

Switch getting VR support ??

Switch might be getting VR support

 

We have seen a lot of rumors about Nintendo Switch VR. In my opinion, this rumor is the strongest one yet.

 

Cody Brocious‏  found VR references while looking at Switch’s code. We see two line of code: IsVrmode Enabled[] – bool; and the other line is SetVrModeEnabled [bool];.

 

He also confirmed that this is Nintendos code not code from Nvidia. Nintendo did say that they are looking into VR for the Switch. This code could be leftover from when Nintendo was developing the Switch. Nintendo could make a head set that connects to the Switch via USB. I think Nintendo should do that because people will be able to connect the headset while the Switch is docked. VR could be why there is a USB port right next to the HDMI port in the dock.

Virtual reality Market in New Video Games and gamers world

Virtual reality Market in New Video Games and gamers world next after E3 2017

Virtual reality is flourishing in 2017. Worldwide revenue for the augmented-reality and virtual-reality market is projected to grow to more than $162 billion in 2020, from $5.2 billion in 2016, driven largely by gaming consoles and mobile virtual-reality headsets and experiences, according to IDC, a research firm.

But in the very first steps of development Virtual reality still faces hurdles in gaming. The industry is still working out how to deal with the nausea that some people feel after they put on an immersive virtual-reality headset, for example. “There are lots of fundamental issues V.R. hasn’t worked out, such as nausea or how our body actually moves and reacts,” said Mattie Brice, an associate director at IndieCade, an international festival highlighting the work of innovative independent game developers. “V.R. has to figure out what’s unique about it besides being immersive, a consumer product buzzword for every advancement since games went 3-D.”

New games and new devices are coming . The flood of new video games is an important marker for virtual reality. Even as the hype over the technology has outrun its actual adoption, the video gaming industry has continued to pour money and resources into embracing virtual reality, cementing its development and advancement — at least in the near term.

“The dream of virtual reality was born in our industry when we created the first virtual worlds,” said Michael D. Gallagher, president and chief executive of the Entertainment Software Association, a trade group for video game companies. “It’s only natural our industry’s passionate and creative innovators, who share that dream, would lead the way in the development of virtual reality.”

Virtual reality has to date disappointed in many areas. Sales of some of the most capable virtual-reality headsets, which put people into an immersive environment, have been somewhat sluggish. Various industries have dabbled with virtual reality — and are still only dabbling. Even Mark Zuckerberg, the chief executive of Facebook, who was a huge proponent of virtual reality and bought Oculus VR for more than $2 billion several years ago, admitted in January that turning the technology into a new computing platform was tougher than he had expected.

“These things end up being more complex than you think upfront,” Mr. Zuckerberg said at the time. “If anything, we may have to invest even more money to get to the goals we had than we had thought upfront.”
