Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Will Support Oculus Rift VR Gaming Headset

Minecraft Oculus Rift Windows 10 Edition

Editor’s Note: After Notch (creator of Minecraft) announced that the game would never be on Oculus Rift because he found Facebook “creepy” (and they’re the new owners of Oculus), the indie development super star moved to sell off the franchise to Microsoft. At the recent industry trade event Oculus Connect 2  which took place this week in Hollywood, California and saw the announcement of several high profile Virtual Reality Gaming projects varying in nature. Mojang, the development studio handling Minecraft titles for Microsoft, phoned in the following announcement for a VR Minecraft to be released with Oculus Rift support for Windows 10 users.

Virtual Reality & Next-Gen Engines

Virtual Reality Helmet drawing

At last year’s latest Game Developers Conference (GDC) Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) was in talks about developing virtual reality video games. Now the company has scheduled another virtual reality (VR) session, talking about next-generation video game engines and more.

The talk titled ‘Virtual Reality and Getting the Best from your Next-Gen Engine’ hosted by SCE Immersive Technology Group technical director Ian Bickerstaff and Research and Development senior engineer Patrick Connor. They will discuss the importance of creating a video game engine that can sustain VR development, and its need for higher frame rates and low-latency. Ian Bickerstaff and Patrick Connor will be offering advice on how to deliver high quality VR experiences, focusing on Project Morpheus VR head-mounted display (HMD) for PlayStation 4. It was also stressed how these techniques discussed will be applicable to standard video game development as well as VR development.

It maybe for a while until we all have a VR-HMD part of our gaming experience but at such a time when third-party game developers have further acquainted themselves with the new tech we won’t be playing Grand Theft Auto V, Assassin’s Creed, or Call of Duty VR editions soon.

New England Patriots Win Super Bowl Madden 15 EA Sports RealGamerNewz Boston

Patriots Win The Super Bowl

– Madden 15 by EA Games Makes Bold Prediction:

Electronic Arts in association with EA Sports released a new statement today to the press saying that the New England Patriots have won the Super Bowl against the Seattle Seahawks in a video game simulation traditionally done by EA Sports as a sort of litmus test for the game engine’s accuracy to real sporting variables. Only time will tell if this rings true in real life.

Here’s an excerpt from the Official Press Release with more information:

“The prediction sees New England’s offense overcoming the Seahawks’ defense to pull out a 28-24 victory. Tom Brady was named MVP of the game thanks to his 335 yard, 4-touchdown performance, his third such honor.

The Madden NFL 15 Super Bowl Prediction is created by simulating the Super Bowl Matchup with updated rosters on Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft and the official game console of the NFL. Fans can get more exclusive EA SPORTS content from Super Bowl week by following Madden NFLon Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat (easports) and using the hashtag #UltimateSB.”

Vita TV PlayStation TV RealGamerNewz Discount Sale

PlayStation TV (AKA Vita TV) Discounted to $60

The PlayStation TV, PSTV, VitaTV, or whatever you want to call Sony’s micro-console / streaming device capable of providing PS Now, PS One Classic, PS Vita, and in-home streamed PS4 content (console required), all under the guise of also being another “Netflix machine” for consumers to gobble up has now gone on discount. Best Buy offered the sale first, both online and in-store for a device that debuted at $99 and steeply fell to $79 during the holiday season.

Now we see the device dropped to just $59 to which users have responded by spreading the news. It remains to be seen how many will actually buy though. Amazon has matched this price, now listing the PlayStation TV for $59.99 as well. The bundle which comes with a controller is now available for $99.00 even.

As Sony struggles to generate interest in the Vita library, many own Vita handhelds and are extremely pleased with their gaming experiences on the device. PSTV getting into more homes is a good sign that if Sony would have offered a more desirable price from the jump, such as Nintendo is attempting to do with the Nintendo New 3DS XL, then more people would have bit. We can probably expect to see a Vita price drop soon after this recent happening comes to pass.

Virtual Reality Gaming PC Architecture SLI GPU Geforce 980

Virtual Reality Gaming PC Architecture is Here

SLI 3.0 is coming out and it’s called VR SLI because it’s for VR Gear such as Oculus Rift. Instead of using multiple GPUs to render a single image, each graphics card renders for a separate eye. Beyond that, if the user has a Quad VR SLI set up then a sick immerse experience is guaranteed.

The GeForce GTX 980 and GeForce GTX 970 themselves even already  include revolutionary new technologies that make Maxwell GPUs the best choice for smooth, responsive, nausea-free Virtual Reality Gaming Experiences according to NVIDA.

Crystal Rift - Virtual Reality Gaming - Oculus

Crystal Rift is a VR Gaming title for Windows PC, Mac OS X, and Linux currently being developed as a first person dungeon crawler being made available for the Oculus Rift virtual reality device coming soon to consumers (and currently in the hands of developers both indie and major worldwide). More information is expected to release soon from Facebook / Oculus about their future vision, but all things appear to be running smoothly for both this device in the PC Gaming world as well as the PlayStation Morpheus for Sony PS4. In this particular video, an indie developer is speaking about his vision for Crystal Rift, a game that’s showing some potential but doesn’t have a clear roadmap just yet. Take a look and see it for yourself. For now, we will simply say that potential exists.

Virtual Reality Game Ether One Confirmed for PS4 Morpheus, Being Developed in Unreal Engine 4

Ether One

Ether One is all about being John Malkovich, well sort of. Players enter the minds of the deranged and attempt to fix their outlook on reality, heal their mental conditions, and restore peace by experiencing the storm of their mind’s eye in a first person encounter representing this metaphysical space.

Once again Unreal Engine 4 makes it possible for games to more easily bring their titles to next-gen. The Oculus Rift / PC Game Ether One was announced to be in development for PlayStation 4 today via the official development studio behind the game who said that this title will “not be on all of them”  meaning there are currently no plans to make this a 5 console game like Battlefield for example (which doesn’t always go well dev-wise).

The PlayStation Morpheus device is a virtual reality headset formally announced by Sony a few times here and there including at E3 2014. For now it seems the focus of Morpheus is to gather developers and prepare releases, with a full blown sales campaign being pushed to a later date when the public is ready see the products that will drive next-gen users into the Virtual Reality (VR Gaming) spectrum.
