Hands-on:Oculus Link Makes Quest Feel Like a Native PC VR HeadsetThe company says it’s using the beta period to test, iterate, and validate GPUs. See this article for a full breakdown of Oculus Link minimum specs and requirements.
– – — – –We went hands-on with Link when it was unveiled back at Oculus Connect 6 in September, and were impressed with the experience, finding that it genuinely felt like using a native PC VR headset.
We’ll be testing Link in the coming days to give you a rundown on just what it can do, and where its limitations lie. We still haven’t had a chance to see if it will work with SteamVR to play non-Oculus platform titles, which would significantly open up the number of games and apps available to it, but make sure to check back soon for the full details.
Nintendo’s Virtual Boy 3D Gaming Console. Similar to SEGA, Nintendo also had the vision of putting out a Virtual Reality headset for the gaming market. They even went as far as putting a VR headset on the market, but unfortunately it didn’t make it far. Released in the mid 1990s and known as the Virtual Boy, the device was a 3D gaming console that had a 3D viewing system rigged out to look like virtual reality. While it was way cheaper than the other options on the market at the time, the device also didn’t manage to truly spark the VR movement, simply because it lacked head-tracking and quality graphics and only offered stereoscopic 3D display.
