Nobody's asking for VR

Recommended Posts

Nobody's asking for VR, thats what Microsofts Phil Spencer (head of xbox and gaming at MS) said

https://stevivor.com/features/interviews/vr-not-a-focus-of-project-scarlett-says-phil-spencer/

How many Simmer use VR actually? 1 of 100?

And here is my concern. The very few crying so loud that Asobo made VR a priority taking time away from real important stuff like ATC, AI or similar.

Nobody is asking for VR for the XBox is what he is talking about. He even acknowledges that if you want VR you go to PC.

I agree that VR simmers are in the minority but that doesn't mean they don't exist. There are quite large numbers of them spread across many different forums (avsim isnt the only game in town!) and while I wouldn't put VR ahead of more basic functionality it is definitely a feature you need to have in a modern cockpit based simulator(pretty much every PC based simulator be it space, racing or flight now supports VR).

Once you try vr it is very hard to go back to a flat screen.  As head sets and performance get better vr will get more popular. 

 

The immersion factor is impossible to beat compared to a flat screen.

That's what happens when you "ban" talk about a certain reasonable subject. People get confused, things get repeated. Totally not surprising.

Add to that the "no talk about hardware" without any comment (to the questions asked) about what constitutes hardware (TrackIR for example) and people have to be mind readers to know what's going on and whether or not they will be sent to the naughty corner.

Personally I'd rather MS initially focused on seasons, ATC, AI traffic and then maybe VR.

Someone should start a poll:

What do you think, how many threads about VR will we have until release of MSFS?

Valve are trying to promote their own VR so they are willing to make a loss on sales as the numbers will be very low.

 

Imagine this would come out for normal PC users. They would easily sell 10 million copies

Probably you forgot to read this in the very same article:

 “The vast majority of our customers know if they want a VR experience, there’s places to go get those. We see the volumes of those on PC and other places.”

Btw, if you allready own a Valve Index or just the Index Controllers the game is free for you anyway.

Nice move from Valve 👍
