What is Virtual Reality Gaming?

Virtual Reality Gaming (VRG) is an easy concept to grasp. VRG is where an individual can experience a 3D gaming environment through a Virtual Reality (VR) Headset. 2016 is the year VRG will break through the cracks and make its first debut with The Oculus Rift, released on 28 March 2016.

Comfort, Mobility, and Design

In a new industry were technology needs to fit into smaller spaces, comfort plays a huge role in these leading VR Headsets. The most comfortable headset seems to be the PS Morpheus, with a sleek design and lightweight mobility this headset makes it the perfect for VRG. With more pressure being on the forehead and less on the face, it is also makes a perfect design for consumers with glasses. The least comfortable out of the three is possibly the Oculus Rift with a tight fit and a little too snug around the nose, consumers reported of having to take off the headset every 20 minutes or so. Each VR Headset has their own unique design with the PS Morpheus choosing to go white and having a forehead strap, unlike its competitors.

Immersive Display

Each VR headset has an Organic Light-Emitting Diploid Display (OLED). The field of views are slightly larger on the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive at 110 degrees and the PS Morpheus at 100 degrees. However the HTC Vive has the largest tracking area with 15 x 15 feet unlike 5 x 11 with the Oculus Rift. The price range varies to provide costumers with a variety of VR Headsets to choose from. The PS Morpheus starts at $399 with the Oculus Rift at $599 and the HTC Vive at a whopping $799.

Games

These VR Headsets have launch titles making the most novice gamers thrilled to see the latest gaming technology. Some of these launch titles are Elite: Dangerous for the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, Adrift, a PS Morpheus exclusive, and an exciting climbing adventure originally a PS Morpheus exclusive but the developer is redressing the balance with The Climb, an Oculus Rift exclusive.
