Dev kits have reportedly already reached some developers
Rumors of a virtual reality (VR) headset for Microsoft’s Xbox One console first began to swirl in March — around the same time as Sony’s Project Morpheus announcement at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) — but almost ten months later we have yet to see such a head-mounted display (HMD) with our own eyes. However, with Xbox boss Phil Spencer admitting, time and again, to “playing with virtual reality”, we can be certain of one thing: we are not dealing with a piece of vaporware here.
Maximum PC editor Jimmy Thang was able to interview Eve: Valkyrie lead designer Ian Alexander Shiels at E3. During their discussion Shiels talked about Eve: Valkyrie and how it is a VR-only experience.
We go hands-on with the latest gaming gadgets at the 2014 Game Developers Conference
We had the chance to check out GDC 2014 held in San Francisco, CA and this year was really about virtual reality. We had everything from the Oculus Rift development kit 2 to Sony’s Project Morpheus and a bunch of VR accessories and peripherals thrown in for good measure.
