Is the Growing Cost of VR Killing the Industry?

Is the Growing Cost of VR Killing the Industry?

VR Gaming Can Cost a Fortune While VR is considered by many to be the future of gaming, there is no denying that it is much more expensive at the moment than regular gaming. Anyone who wants the full-on VR experience will have to shell out at least $399 for an Oculus Rift, which is currently the most affordable high-end VR headset on the market. HTC Vive, on the other hand, costs $599, while Sony PlayStation VR costs $449.   Costs can increase even more if there are compatibility problems. If a computer does not have the required specs to meet the rigid demands of high-end VR gear, the only option is to invest in an equally high-end computer. The Razer Blade 2016 is one of the smallest VR ready laptops available on the market, and its price starts at a steep $1799. The high costs of acquiring the necessary hardware to experience the best of what VR can offer is part of the reason why sales of high-end headsets continues to be lukewarm, especially when compared to hugely successful consumer electronics like the PS4 and the Xbox One. Market analysis firm Canalys revealed that in the third quarter of 2017 (June to September), shipments of high-end VR headsets breached 1 million shipments for the first time, with Sony’s PlayStation VR leading the way (490,000 units shipped), followed by Oculus Rift at 210,000, and HTC Vive at 160,000. Other VR companies such as China’s DPVR combined to ship some 140,000 units. In contrast, each of the aforementioned gaming consoles sold a million units in its very first day of availability.   VR Technology Yet To Hit Its Milestone Yet to say that the cost of VR is killing the industry is a bit extreme, and in some ways inaccurate. True, sales of VR headsets have not met lofty expectations, but that does not mean the industry is not making any sort of headway. Breaching the 1 million mark in the third quarter of 2017 is proof that progress is still being made, and that the industry, though not exactly thriving, is nevertheless not dying either. What’s more, sales of VR headsets have been trending upward this 2018. In fact, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Sony PlayStation VR have combined to sell more than 2 million VR headsets through the first nine months of 2017 compared to the 1.7 million units they sold in the 2016. This increase in sales is modest at best, but it is still much better than no growth at all.   One of the key reasons that VR will continue to be strong is its...

More FPS Without Overclocking – How To Do It?

  The gaming world is full of fascination and energy and the P.C. gaming industry is earning billions nowadays. Yes, you play and they earn; it’s as crazy as it sounds. All you game lovers must like to play the games that are heavy on your graphics card and require more FPS. Overclocking is sure as hell a simple way, but as you were told in the previous article, it always comes with a risk. So, how to get more FPS without overclocking? Let’s have a look! It doesn’t matter which modem you have; it all starts with the graphics card. Following are the simplest ways to get more FPS without overclocking:   1. Get The Most Recent Drivers Don’t dare to play weighty games on old drivers. The latest ones are available, so get ’em and replace your old ones. It’s the simplest way to get more FPS without overclocking. It is as simple as upgrading your card, that’s it! Despite its simplicity, a surprising amount of people ignore it due to the lack of knowledge. When should you upgrade? Now, that’s a question. A pop-up notification tells you whenever there is a new driver available. See, how you should upgrade. First, know about the graphics card and windows version you have. Then, go to an authentic website for the newest driver including Intel, AMD, or Nvidia. Make sure you do not go to the website of card manufacturers like Sapphire or Gigabyte. Yeah, you have to download it, nothing more. Download and then install the driver. Once installed, your game and windows should be updated. If not, go the developer’s website for games and update the windows yourself. 2. Use AVG Uninstaller and Program Deactivator Have you suspected that your PC works slower than the time when you first installed the windows? Yeah, it happens. The more programs you install, the slower it becomes and it directly affects your game’s performance. It happens because a lot of unwanted programs run in the background even when you haven’t opened them. AVG uninstalls such programs and you get more FPS without overclocking. Even the 15 days trial works fine. After downloading and installing, go to “Optimize” and select “Uninstall Programs.” So, what’s the difference between the built-in uninstaller and AVG? It’s the filtering feature of AVG that helps you to look into programs you rarely or never use. Go to “Filter List” and select “Rarely Used Programs” and “Programs Not Used for a Long Time.” Click on “Uninstall” when you find the desired program. 3. Optimize Your Game Settings Updating your driver as described in the first option will...

Now You Can Run PlayStation Games on PC

Sony released its PlayStation Now game streaming service for PC earlier this week which means you no longer require to purchase PlayStation hardware to play number of first party Sony games. How cool is that? You can easily run many PS3 classic games on a PC running Microsoft Windows operating system. It could be a major evolutionary step in Console gaming industry. Some other PlayStation services like the TV-streaming program PS Vue could come to PC as well soon. Playing games on a PC through PS Now still feels a lot like playing on a Sony’s product. It still uses DualShock 4 controller, and the interface is a variant of the XMB that the company has used for years. Playing through PS Now has few back draws and input lag-delay being a major one if connected through WiFi (not tested on LAN yet) which could make Online Multiplayer games harder to play. We are expecting some fix to this issue in future updates. You can checkout video below of PlayStation Now service by Jeffrey Grubb/GamesBeat. You can only play PS3 games on the service now. Sony is likely to expand what it offers through its streaming service for PC, TV and mobile phones. PS4 and PS2 games should be added as gamer’s hunger for trying out new games is inevitable. Gamers can enjoy playing Uncharted, God of War, and Sly Cooper for now without having to purchase Sony’s PlayStation...
