The Main Event: 9am PT/12pm ET/5pm BST/6pm CESTThen, at 9am PT/12pm ET/5pm BST/6pm CEST the E3 VR Showcase 2019 kicks off! We’ll feature over 30 VR titles including brand new reveals, updates for some of your current favorites and a whole host of gameplay and trailers for things to come. We’ll kick things off with a big reveal from our friends at Vertigo Games and keep things moving from there. We’ve got something for everyone in this showcase: new Quest games and ports, info on upcoming PSVR titles and some truly awesome content for the PC VR crowd.
The VR Today. Currently Virtual Reality is growing in popularity and while companies like the Oculus Rift are losing some of their customers because of unpopular marketing practices, other devices, including the HTC Vive are taking the VR stage. Furthermore, with Google Cardboard creating the concept and other companies taking note, Smartphone Virtual Reality Goggles are letting consumers easily enjoy and experience immersive virtual and augmented reality. With huge consumer base, the multiple platforms for development, and the lack of many VR games and experiences, small start-ups as well as huge companies are investing huge amounts of money into the development of content for Virtual Reality, which might very well help VR finally achieve the world-wide recognition it didn’t manage to achieve on the market for years.
A very special thank you goes out to each and every VR developer that worked with us on this showcase. You guys put your trust in us to pull this off and we can but hope our 75 minutes of celebrating all things VR does your work justice. VR wouldn’t be the same without you!After the show, stick around! We’ll have first impressions on some of our biggest reveals and follow-up articles for all the headlines. And, of course, there’s more VR to come from E3 itself. Check back all week for the latest coverage on the ground at the LA Convention Center.
