The perfect Virtual Reality solution has been a pipedream for many gaming technology companies since Nintendo tried to bring it to the mainstream with the Virtual Boy in 1995. As the years have passed, technology has now progressed to the point that we now have three completely viable gaming Virtual Reality headsets in Oculus Rift, the HTC Vive and the newly-released and most consumer-friendly, PlayStation VR.
I remember trying the Oculus Rift three years ago and left the demo feeling incredibly motion sick. Albeit, it was literally a demo in which you flew around lava-filled mountains. Regardless, I was left in awe from the experience, but the queasiness was enough to make me concerned about Virtual Reality.
Well, the time is finally here in which we have PlayStation VR, a device which is more affordable, especially for people who already own a PlayStation 4, in comparison to the VIVE and Oculus. However, my number one concern with VR is surrounding the potential for motion sickness, and it’s already interesting to see what people are coming up with to combat the terrible feeling of your head spinning or your stomach-turning.
