2 months ago – VR is poised to be the next big thing in video games, but its potential for the medium’s entertainment is a bit more limited than many people realized.
VR, in particular, is not a full-fledged immersive experience.
Rather, it’s the closest thing we’ve seen to a virtual reality headset, but without any real-time or head-tracking functionality.
It’s also not entirely clear how immersive VR can be without an Oculus Rift.
As a result, some people might feel left out.
And with this in mind, Polygon decided to take a closer look at the technology’s capabilities and the potential of VR to give you some insight into the next generation of gaming.
