Like a lot of fancy-ass new tech, the Oculus Rift was being hyped out the wazzoo before launch. Of course it was. That’s just how this stuff goes down. VR gaming was going to explode onto the scene, make us all foul ourselves with excitement, and we’d all ride the tide of crap into a glorious new era for video games. Or something.
When it came to the actual launch, alas, it wasn’t quite the phenomenon it could have been. They had all the PR stunts down --Oculus bigwig Palmer Luckey himself personally delivered the first Rift—but dropped the ball in all kinds of ways. Supply problems, pricing, all the usual BS… as a result, the device has had a stunted impact in its brief time on the market so far.
A lot of early sales, natch, went to the techoloholics among us. The sorts of mad bastards who have to update their cell phones twice a month as new models are brought out. The guys who need the newest shit RIGHT NOW. Which is all well and good, if that’s your thing. The dedicated gamers among us, though, will need a little more convincing by PlayStation VR, Oculus or VR gaming in general before they drop the cash.
You know what usually tends to convince us? Boobs, that’s what. We’re a little partial to the whole jiggly chesticles thing, and we’re sure you are too. And we’re goddamn sure that the Dead or Alive team are as well. That’s quite a reputation they have there, after all. So their upcoming VR nork-centric project shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, really.
What we’re talking here is a VR mode being added to Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Fortune. ‘VR Paradise’ is coming (and so are you, if you get my drift) to the game in October, as PlayStation VR launches, and… well, sometimes the written word just isn’t enough. Just look at this:
