So I have been noticing that I have a lot of “hate” in my head when it comes to new game hardware. The bad thing is I am not sure if I am making a judgement call on my feelings or just that I am being a sourpuss. Every time I see a new head mounted VR system or some motion controlled joystick/glove and boots setup , I hate it! The first thought that comes to my mind is that it will be a failure or that no one will buy it.
This all came to my attention the other day when I sat down at my buddy’s pc to play Hawken. He got the game along with his purchase of the Oculus Rift. When he told me he spent 300.00 dollars for this thing I cracked. I can’t see how people jump onto another peripheral and furthermore spend 300.00 dollars on it.
Oh well I will keep this one shorter than normal, don’t want to focus so much on a negative post. 🙂 Anyways I will work at not being so negative to new gaming hardware in the future, but 300.00 on a vr helmet from the 90s… sigh.
