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.
Virtual Reality Has ROI. While it might feel as if virtual reality has been around forever, it’s still a relatively new technology. This has caused some businesses to question whether virtual reality is actually beneficial. The truth: of course virtual reality has shown to have positive ROI. British travel group Thomas Cook reported a 190 percent increase in tours booked to New York City after offering a virtual reality experience of the city in their stores. Amnesty International reported a 16 percent increase in direct-debit donations brought on by its VR campaign.
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.
