Not that I have $500 or so to drop on an Oculus Rift
when it comes out, but I must say that there's a part of me that would love to have one if more MMOs sign up to support it. Already we're seeing titles from Elder Scrolls Online
to EVE Valkyrie
lending support to this virtual reality headset, which makes me wonder whether this is just a fad or if it's the next big thing for gaming.
After all, we've been down the VR headset road before, particularly in the '90s. I mean, that picture up there? That's Angela Lansbury from Murder She Wrote in 1993
. I might also bring up the topic of Virtual Boy
if it didn't depress me so much. Man, I really wanted VR to be real back then... but maybe its time is yet to come.
Would you buy a VR headset for MMOs? If so, what would the cost need to be and what level of service would it need to supply to get you to go for it?
