Is the Oculus Quest the breakthrough standalone HMD the industry desperately needs?

Unless you've been living under a rock this past week, you've probably heard nonstop discussion about a product Oculus hopes to sell to the masses in 2019. It's a new standalone HMD gaming system called the Oculus Quest. The Quest could probably be best described as a bridge between the high-end and low-end. On the low-end, Oculus has their Go headset. It's wireless, priced affordably ($199, $249), and just powerful enough to give users a small taste of our inevitable VR future. Then on the the high-end, you have the Oculus Rift. It leverages the full power of a required gaming PC, along with a more robust tracking system and legit hand presence. The problem for Oculus/Facebook, is that whil

Smash Hit Plunder coming exclusively to PlayStation VR on October 5th!

One of the most amazing VR experiences I've ever had the pleasure to enjoy, was Unseen Diplomacy on the HTC Vive. This was back during the original launch of the HTC Vive circa April 2016. Even now, well over two years later, Unseen Diplomacy still holds up as one of the more entertaining examples of Valve's room-scale concept. The developer of that project is Triangular Pixels. For the longest time, we wondered what Triangular Pixels would be working on next. About a year or so ago, we found out that their next project was called Smash Hit Plunder, and it would be coming exclusively to PlayStation VR. It was somewhat surprising to hear they would be bringing their next project to PlayStatio

Hot Shots Golf VR headed to PSVR in 2019!

Golf and VR seem like such a natural. A marriage made in heaven, if you will. Yet, so far, we've only seen a single golf game released on Sony's PSVR platform. The HTC Vive and Oculus Rift have a number of golf games available, but on PlayStation VR, we're pretty much relegated to the disappointing 100ft Robot Golf. Well, all of that is about to change. Hot Shots Golf VR is coming to PlayStation VR in 2019! PlayStation VR diehards have been pleading with Sony to bring the celebrated franchise to VR, and their prayers have finally been answered. Developer Clap Hanz, will be bringing Everybody's Golf to the Japanese PSVR market sometime in 2019, and hopefully the USA version won't be far behi

Windlands 2 coming to the Oculus Rift on September 12th for $29.99!

Late last year, Psytec Games had announced that a sequel to Windlands would be coming in the not too distant future. They released screenshots and gameplay videos. However, they didn't provide a release date, or even a release window for the followup to the HTC Vive launch game. For many months, we wondered when Windlands 2 could possibly arrive. Well, that day is finally upon us. Windlands 2 hits the scene next week, on September 12th, for the Oculus Rift. The game will retail for $29.99, and at least initially is an exclusive release for the Oculus Rift. The game is expected to arrive on Steam and PlayStation VR early in 2019. HTC Vive gamers are more than a little miffed by this timed exc
