EGX 2015 was home to a lot of new things, horrible energy drink, a new home with the NEC, Brimingham, and the most important one, VR. All types of it. Oculus Rift DK2, Sony VR, and above all HTC Vive / SteamVR.
I got to try all three of these out, except Sony VR only very quickly as someone didn’t show, so there was a minute or so until that slot was over. Having a fancy press pass I snuck my way in, cheeky me. Sony VR and Rift DK2 are good, but Vive is better.
While I was initially skeptical of how the HTC Vive / SteamVR would perform, I left the demo room lost for words. I finally found those words, and here they are in this lovely video for you.
You don’t need to watch the video, you can just listen. The videos from it I did not create. That honour goes to the amazing creators who are linked in the video’s description.
