It’s an interesting question, because the promise of VR isn’t entirely clear yet.
Oculus VR is currently trying to get the Rift headset onto the Rift and HTC Vive in time for the holiday season, while Microsoft is launching the Oculus Connect 2 event on January 14th that’s aimed at developers and retailers to get their VR games and apps on store shelves.
But in the short term, it’s hard to say if any of the aforementioned platforms will be able to match the VR quality that people are looking for.
There are many competing VR experiences in the market, and while Oculus and Microsoft have both built great virtual reality headsets, the Oculus Rift is still a relatively new product and has been struggling to get its software updates to users.
It’s also one of the few headsets to feature a wireless connection, which means it’s likely that you won’t see a lot of wireless headset experiences.
VR headsets are usually cheaper and faster than the cheaper and more feature-rich HTC Vive, but that’s not a guarantee of VR quality, and in some cases the Rift can be hard to get set up for.
The headset also lacks a decent display, so it’s difficult to know what you’re getting when you buy one.
While it’s still early days for VR, we do know that there are a lot more people out there that are interested in virtual reality than there are games to play.
There’s a lot to like about VR right now, and the promise is still there for developers to release amazing games.
