- Virtual reality is still big news these days.
- Xbox and Sony have chosen opposite approaches to the tech.
- This means that VR could end up defining the next generation.
Virtual reality has been big news for the past few years. Aside from a disastrous stint in the 90s, it has always seemed like the realm of science fiction. These days, virtual reality is actually pretty attainable. You can purchase a starter set for the PlayStation 4 for under $200 on sale, not including PlayStation Move.
For the upcoming generation of consoles, Sony and Microsoft have chosen two different paths. Microsoft has made it clear that they will not be focusing on VR, while Sony has doubled down on the VR headsets. Whichever proves to be the correct path will probably define the ‘winner’ of the generation.
