If you’re looking to join the world of virtual reality gamers, there are several options that are available to you. The HTC Vive and Oculus Rift are two of the best systems that are available today; however, the price can scare some people away. The Vive retails at $799.00 and the Rift can be yours for $599. In addition to the cost of the device, you’ll need a new computer to meet the basic minimum requirement to play.
The Samsung Gear might not be as high end as the Vive or Rift, but it still gives players a realistic VR experience at a much more affordable price, $99.00, and in some cases it’s free with the purchase of a Samsung 7 phone.
While we are still in the very early stages of VR technology, we can already see the improvement that the Samsung Gear is bringing to gaming. Once you connect your phone or phablet into the headset, you feel as if you have literally jumped into an alternate reality.
The lightweight Gear VR headset can revolutionize the way you experience gaming. Instead of just playing the game, you can actually be in the game. The Gear VR has the functionality for a complete 360 degree spectrum, just turn around and see what is behind you.
If you’re a fan of first person shooter games, make sure to try out Eve: Gunjack, blow up space ships and shoot pirate ships out of the water using a gun turret, which you can control with simple head motions.
For online casino players, virtual reality can be a real game changer. One of the chief complaints that online casino players have is the lack of the casino ambiance, because they are sitting at home and missing out on the excitement of the casino floor.
The Gear VR will transform their living room into a casino floor. Walk around, enjoy the sights and the sounds of the games, use hand motions to throw the dice when playing craps and tap on the blackjack table when you want the dealer to hit you.
Sports fans are anxiously awaiting the release of their favorite games. While current games such as NBA2k, FIFA and Madden strive to have the most realistic graphics and game play, a VR experience will be a whole different ballgame. You’ll experience what it’s like to be on the field, look around the field and make your decisions.
Based on what we’ve seen in the past year, and how VR has already begun changing gaming, we can only imagine how much better the games will get in 2017 and beyond.by
