The problem with VR is that people will buy a console (or PC) to get some exclusive games and good games running well. You buy a VR headset for more than the cost of a console and it's hard to find a decent amount of AAA exclusives that can draw you into that purchase.

For me VR is just missable right now, it reminds me of smartphone gaming where you can find odd bits but they're just not the same as the big releases on console and PC.

Duck of death, 17 Aug 2018Skyrim is available in VR. There are plenty of sports games in V... moreHmmm i am not suren and i hate sports games as i dont prefer any physical activity such as drilling in the gym.
The onkly sport i preffer is running onto the bus or tram in last second :-)

CptPower, 17 Aug 2018So its useless due to lack of games i can use with them. And ... moreSkyrim is available in VR. There are plenty of sports games in VR. Dark Souls is a bit impractical to release on VR as it's a 3rd person view game, i.e. optimised for console. There are however a community mod for Dark Souls that changes it into a 1st person view game and that mod also has a VR mode. One big thing you get when gaming on PC is the unparalleled modding community that fixes all the things game developers forget.

And dont play any sports game at all.
First person shooter, strategy games and games as MOBA league of legends world of tanks, Skyrim, Darksouls etc. No place to USE WR on any of theses.

What a lot different can these brings to the gaming to buy them?
BVecause spending several hundreds bucks for same experience like when normalny playing the game wouldnt rise a finger to buy them in my opinion.

CptPower, 17 Aug 2018So tghese are for a phone use or with PC? If phone then i dont ... moreIt's competing with HTC vive. It's designed for heavy pc games unlike gear VR which is for mobiles. I hope this clears your misunderstanding.

So tghese are for a phone use or with PC?
If phone then i dont understand the steam possibility here due no phone can run any steam game.
And if for windows i dont see anything usefull here.
It may add some extra experience to the gaming but i dont think its worth the money.

Wireless would be good.
