The excitement for Virtual Reality continues! We saw some amazing stuff coming from the RIVER start-ups (powered by the Rottenberg Ventures), special mention to FOVE and their awesome VR eye tracking system! They just launched a Kickstarter campaign, back it up!
The Project Morpheus demo with the guns was a big star here. It was really fun just to watch the great reactions from the players. We got to try a Sixense demo, also with guns… it was just great! Having controllers definitely adds to the VR experience.
A few more people played our FATED demo. Even though it’s still pretty early in Alpha, it’s still making quite an impression. Quote of the day: “Best Demo I’ve played during the event and it was in a f**king Hotel Room!”
We finished the day with a great talk from our friends at Epic. It was good to hear that their Showdown demo worked without any modification @120 Hertz on the Project Morpheus. This is really high end stuff and it was running on a very high end PC rig. The PS4 is a powerful machine and mustn’t be underestimated.
But as all good things must come to an end, we need to get back to work now.
See you later folks!
