Currently, major giants conquering the market of VR glasses and headsets are Oculus (with Oculus Rift headset), HTC (its product: HTC Vive) and Sony (Sony PlayStation VR, correspondingly). Each product requires a separate development of the same VR project. Let’s review the latest news from each of manufacturers and try to suggest what prospects can we expect as gambling business players.
Recently Oculus has managed to:
It is also essential to mention the development of broadcast quality headphones from Harman International; these headphones are compatible with Oculus Rift and allow significantly improve sound quality of the standard sound module
It should be noticed that Oculus Rift was the first real market player among VR devices prior to the current competitors, and in more than two years of superiority, it managed to attract developers and loyal customers.
Major sales area: the West
We are pleased that HTC:
All these aspects will definitely influence the attractiveness of this manufacturer and, consequently, the promotion of this model.
Major sales area: the East – China and neighboring countries
Thus far, it appears that Sony has decided not to compete with Oculus and HTC for the PC market and is intensely developing its product for the PlayStation game console. Therefore, it is difficult to talk about any advantages of this VR headset for the gambling business.
It is debatable whether one will develop online casinos for consoles in future.
Surely, CASEXE will be happy to create new unique projects, but at this time everything is looking better for operating casinos on the PC market.
However, recently the newly established Global Virtual Reality Association focusing on smoothing the fragmentation of VR market players gathered the three above-mentioned companies on board. For instance, Ubisoft has stated that all its projects will be crossplatform.
Perhaps, the difference between devices will be absolutely vanished very soon.
However as of today, this difference is essential for us, software manufacturers and online casino operators.
