There will be plenty of people willing to pay whatever price it is at launch,and if i was really excited i would be one of them.
I kind of think that my reasons i feel the way i do regarding VR is my age if I'm totally honest,I'm sure if i was around 20/30 i would be super excited for this device.
I also don't have the 20/20 vision that younger people have and that has a impact in the way i think about VR and the fact that on many occasions [not all] i tend to wear distance Glasses [Magoo Vision Fitted] So that also puts me of and i really don't think these devices as aimed at the mature hardened gamers that have been gaming since the 80s.
The Nintendo Wii was a gaming masterstroke at the time mate and i completely agree,stock sold out well in advance and at first you could not get them for love or money,but they were not aimed at the mainstream as families who really didn't care for gaming bought them in there droves for the party impact they provided.
But again with motion controlled gaming and the fact that the Nintendo WII was so underpowered compared to the 360 and playstation 3 it was long before developers eloped in there droves and only First Party Nintendo published titles like Wii Sports,Mario and the rest of the Nintendo fans favourites kept the console afloat .
Then they released the Nintendo Wii U [another stupid name] and look how that has had such poor sales forcing Nintendo to adopt a new strategy and release a new console codenamed NX next year 2016.
I think it will have its fans mate for sure ,and I'm sure it will have some mind blowing games,I'm just saying given my age and the fact i like to completely relax and chill out when playing a game is why VR is not for me.
Like i said,if i was 20 plus I'm sure that i would be writing hundreds of posts about the product and i would almost certainly be that early adopter.
Anyway Fallout 4 is now installing...........See you all next year
