With Oculus Rift getting released on 28th March the Sparks spend time breaking down the reviews that dropped in to coincide with the release.
Antony and Darren give thanks to Palmer Luckey for his vision and for driving Oculus forward and look forward to the future of this new platform that will no doubt innovate and deliver amazing experiences to the consumers.
Also examined is the fact that having PSVR, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive active in the market can only be a good thing for the future of VR as it seems the industry has a razor sharp intent upon making VR relevant.
Once the affordability factor is overcome VR will surely become more mainstream but as it stands at the moment, which platform would you go for?
