Oculus Rift: 11 Interesting Facts about Virtual Reality Gaming: Page 8 of 11

Looking forward to Oculus Rift
11 things you may not know about VR

4. Virtual reality will make gaming more active

Lighter headwear will get adults and kids alike up and moving

Virtual Boy lacked what could be virtual reality’s greatest strength: movement. Long has gaming been associated with lazy teens wasting away on a couch. Oculus Rift’s lightweight headset will give users the ability to move around, fight their foes, and take a walk through a forest instead of pressing a button.

Although the Wii Console sought to do this with their interactive gaming systems, it’s still not the same as being in a VR setting. Perhaps this is why Nintendo is sitting out the VR gaming war while Playstation dives in headfirst. Or perhaps they already learned their lesson with Virtual Boy and will steer clear of this market for good.

Too bad. Mario Kart would be awesome in VR.

I know about this gaming console in the 90s. Then it was a radically new concept in a gaming industry. But more popular were portable game consoles. Therefore, many have chosen them instead of this game console. Now VR games are very popular. A level of a virtual world in modern virtual reality helmets is much higher. But the cost of high-quality virtual reality helmets is high. In cheap helmets, you can only play low-quality games. A great alternative are the centers of virtual reality. For example, the center of virtual reality in Melbourne - https://virivr.com.au/. Here for a small fee, you can play quality VR games.
