VALVE VR CONFIRMED TO BE OPEN FOR NON-STEAM AND UNCURATED CONTENT
Is this the end of the Nipponese race?
Don't you want to go further?
Can't wait for the disappointment that is the gimmick of VR in general.
Have any of you SEEN the shit they post in the Japanese Skyrim imageboards?
I'd be happy with a skyrim waifu with the right interactive AI, full VR, 20 pounds of pussy and ass, and haptic feedback.
the sheepie don't see it. they think its amazing.
Sure, at least until I can eat virtual cheese and sweetrolls, or drink virtual mead and have a robot make them appear in my mouth.
I'll get hungry and have to get up occasionally.
>I can finally have dance parties with Miku and Birry
What a time to be alive.
I want to see miku rape billy and make him cry.
A company reblog isn't vidya if the product isn't vidya. Never was, will never be. You don't see threads about Sony's last phone there. That garbage is the same flavour of off topic.
Holy shit yes, bring it
Mods for some eroge already exist for Oculus too, and the devs are already officially ready.

>yfw the upcoming Liru game was delayed to make it compatible with VR support
And that its even better.
I want to use VR to fap to things like this first:
I wonder in how much time SteamVR will be released.
>but don't say I didn't warn you in a few years when you spend hundreds of dollars just to jerk off.
Why not? who wouldn't spend some money for a good wank?
I spent $100 on sadpanda to don't worry about credits and hath again and i don't regret it.
I'll spend all my time in my room having sex with my waifu
More than half of VR related discussion I usually see on /v/ is based around pornography.
Even most of this thread is only based porn. Why don't we ever talk about the other things you can do with it?
Because it's not much more useful than the 3D on the 3DS.
Eroge's already have animated sex scenes so it wouldn't be hard for a company to work on editing the animation to the plugged in dildo and having it react to your movements in the VR. What's interesting is that it won't be hard for a VR waifu sex simulator to come out in 5 years and with a bit of engineering/editing software you could build a robot and program it to the game and you could end up having sex with your waifu in real life after 10 years or so.
>Why don't we ever talk about the other things you can do with it?
Because the best part is porn. Beside that there are plenty of cool simulator/exploration/first person games that you could make with it.
The 3d on the 3ds doesn't make you feel like you're in the game, it just makes things look like 3d in a screen if it's working properly.
You still see everything around you and you still have an FOV and resolution that doesn't even come close to a HMD
Want to talk about VR but not about porn?
Here is a good theme of discussion.
What would this do to our bodies i mean, im sure it will affect us somehow because we wont be moving and our eyes will see that we are.
The extra weight in the front of the head, the fact you could bump things around your room, etc.
I don't want to hit something with my dick while walking around my room either.
It's going to be strange at first, but you get used to it.
It's not like this is some sort of ultra-advanced technology that could have massive repercussions on our health, it's just a fucking screen being put in front of your face.
Holy... Do you have any more? Please tell me you do.
This kind of thing is going to be on the rise along with VR. That's one of the things that make me the happiest.
That was their strategy for winning the VR race. Make it better, and then bend over backwards to cater to third parties and enthusiasts. Occulus was going along a route something like this as well, but Valve is also able to leverage Steam, as well as the ability to make it stupid fucking simple to integrate into they platforms they offer to developers themselves.
And thats it, sorry i dont have the list i found on /jp/ anymore, those are some that i recently saw.
Last time I checked, the Japanese gaming industry gives approximately 0.0 shits what feminists think. To quote one japanese twitter exchange between a developer and a questioner;
>"she is saying you have made a sexist game."
How are you faggots so behind on the times? A lot of this waifu shit already exists and has since 2013. Are all of you faggots 18 years old and too poor to splurge on the next revolution of computer interfaces?
>HERCULES THE ANIMATED SERIES
>fuckhead sister jumps in front of me, blocking the screen
>i get in front of her
>she gets in front of me

>"stop that or you'll need glasses"

>couple weeks later
I don't think he has, but a lot of brave/dumb pioneers with DK1/2's have already made and tested plenty of shit in 2D. This has been a thing for some time and people are being extremely fucking quick to forget this. They were and are crude devices, but their purpose in the first place was figuring out how the CV1 should be built and work as to be nonshit since nobody knows how to do that shit right yet. So they stuck their feet in the water with some preproduction machines to see how the entire scheme needed to be reworked to work well as a gaming device and other shit. This is why I still have confidence in the CV1, and am convinced that the barely-better-than-a-DK2 Morpheus will only succeed as a hyped up console device and not as a competitor in the VR race. It is going to be miles behind, no matter how early it launches. We all know what kind of results you get by going in fast and dirty with outdated hardware. Sony has learned this lesson before. There's no reason for them to be repeating it.
I'll gladly take this shit while we wait for full immersion.
>not playing your VR waifu games on a secure TOR connection, or better yet OFFLINE
As an owner of an dk2 I can say personally that hype for vr is appropriate. It's definitely the coolest thing I've ever experienced.
That being said it's not without it's flaws right now and needs some serious improvements before it become a mainline medium.
Waifu talk aside, I think the idea of a VR park is pretty cool.
Just put your VR in, make the environment so it just keeps updating the headset on where you are and it displays some fantastical scene, when in reality it's just a greenscreen or some shit. Have shootouts, swordfighting, guys pretending to be girls, all of that shit. Disneylands might actually invest in that shit.
>By the end of the year Vive will be out and the waifu age can begin
I'm so ready, so fucking ready. Goodbye world.
thank god that's why the DK2 exists in the first place. I can't fucking understand why Sony would think a device with specs BARELY above that thing will cut it as a production device, and the PS4 can't even make full use of that crappy thing.
>mfw I mod in a Bad Dragon as a replacement
I think one of the first things to come out is going to be using valve's 'room experience' shit to track where you are in it, and you just sit around in an average size room with other people and fucking chill. Move around and shit. I wonder if it can track limbs at all. Kinect support?
>tfw when I finally end up getting my own place, I'm going to have to make sure I have a completely empty room for VR.
I FEEL IT
I FEEL IT IN MY BONES
ENOUGH TO MAKE MY SYSTEMS BLOW

I already have one, it's easier to clear your room than you think, just use furniture smartly. Put your battlestation under a loft bed, for example. If I put my chair in the corner I'd have enough room to sit down and finally have that tea party with you guys.

I lost it. Thanks for the good laugh Anon.
>"Come, let me show you my world, a world of pure imagination"
You can finally smell your sweaty waifu.
Smell simulators have been around for ages, like from the 70's. Scents are not that hard to simulate, its just nobody has put much time or effort into the tech, but they will as VR becomes the norm.
That video is depressing, thank god for based Valve.
I'm still waiting for a PCI powered smell simulator.
I should future proff a motherboard with a good ammount of USB slots and PCI-e slots for that.
Then with all my set, 2 tubes for each nose for my smell simulator, a tube for my mouth, and VR headset lying on a bed and i will be done, I will be living the dream.
It would be like being in the hospital all over again.
Given the fact it comes with controllers, plus has optional base stations for moving around rooms, I'd wager it would cost an arm and a leg.
But I'll gladly pay extra for said controllers and base stations, plus to a device owned by fucking Facebook.
I feel bad for Canadabros. They already have sexbots banned over there, I can only imagine that they're going to ban all the waifu sims too.
I'm half glad half terrified vr is finally here
I just don't see humanity surviving this thing
No one will ever fuck another person again
A thousand years from now aliens are going to find this planet and find the whole of humanity died at the same time with their hands in their pants
VR will never "kill" humanity, regardless of how complex and life like it gets. Right now the world is over populated and unless every single man and woman on earth decides to never have sex again, it won't be an issue.
By the time VR gets to the point where it can simulate touch, emotions of a person, scents and everything down to Matrix levels, we'll have test tube people anyway, be it cloning or vats, we are already close to having a working artificial womb.
>tfw learning Japanese and Comp Sci in hopes of living and dying as a chain smoking salary man in Japan
>want to throw that all out and buy a house in the US so I can dedicate all the space for vr
This is a better future than I could ever have predicted.
I wonder how Valve felt when the Facebook adquisition happened. I do remember Valve giving the Oculus developers a shitload of money when promise was still alive.
Must have felt like pure rage.
>dad rips the headset off and puts it on
>Watching Cities Skylines videos in hype for release
>mfw someone mods in a first person view with VR to walk around your cities
I've always liked HTC, this only makes me happier.
I have a DK2 and its great. My favorite uses so far are Elite: Dangerous and JanusVR. JanusVR is like a VR Web. In it's current state, it reminds me of late 90s geocities web. It's glorious. Like I'm in the wild west of VR. I'm working on my own shitty VR Website right now, just like I had my shitty geocities page in the 90s.
Holy shit, that would be the greatest thing in existence
>walk around, people recognize you as the mayor of the city
>if the crime rate is high as fuck then you get mugged by a nigger
For the Rift they are talking around $300USD give or take. Vive would have to be very similar, but it is offering more features so you could expect it to be a bit more expensive, but who knows.
>Will morpheus be open or not?
Sony is designing the Morpheus to be a PS4 peripheral. Nothing more.
Whether people will be able to make homebrew drivers/adapters/software for it or not remains to be seen.
Why would you be worried about the price? Facebook would never try to make a profit off of the hardware, that's a terrible business decision. They are a software company for christ's sake. VR is a platform for them, one that needs to grow for them to expand their software into. It has been stated before that it will be sold at cost or even at a small loss, which means ~$300
>The "Mugged and Raped" VR Skylines DLC
>Will this sony product be open or not?
this is paradox we're talking about
they have to do it
>offering more features
I dont know about that. The only real benefit I am seeing in the HTC HMD (not valve, they are only a software partner) is the 15 sq ft sensors. Everything else is pretty sub par compared to the direction oculus is going. It is all but confirmed that the CV1 Rift will have 1440p res. Not only that, but Oculus bought Nimble VR a few months ago, which consists of a bunch of computer vision scientists working on this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_U3BmDlmtc
You could probably make Morpheus work as a dumb display pretty easily but to get motion tracking you'd have to make a driver for PSEye (or w/e it's called) as well... shit's getting complicated, nobody's going to bother when there will obviously be something equal or better for the same price within a year at the absolute most.
The only reason Morpheus exists is to sell it. Not for any real widespread use. Also see: Eyetoy and Playstation move. Sony know those things wouldn't take off, but they jump onto any bandwagon possible in order to make money.
Morpheus is literally just a brick sony is releasing to make some money. Devs won't touch it, they've (Dev teams) already come out and said its worthless, because unlike PC VR, you have to design around it, because a console is a closed system, and no dev that isn't paid off by sony to do so is going to waste their time with it.
>The only real benefit I am seeing in the HTC HMD (not valve, they are only a software partner) is the 15 sq ft sensors.
The benefit is right here:
"Our SteamVR APIs are free to use and come with everything you love about Steam, but they can also be leveraged without it. We call this alternate version of our APIs OpenVR. OpenVR includes all the same great capabilities, minus Steam."
That means no fucks given when feminists and mothers get offended and pressure Facebook to ban everything not about transgender otherkin vegan farming.
>Why would feminists care about sexbots?
The same reason many get mad about BDSM or porn.
But the rift isn't a close platform. Sure, they might be able to ban shit from muh facebook vr store, but the actual platform is open for anyone to develop on. If this changes, you can be damned sure you'll see the likes of Carmack and Abrash jumping ship to reasonable platforms, which spells the end of Oculus as a viable competitor. This is something Zuckerburg doesn't want.
Didn't think I would get to use this so soon
The problem is that the most crucial changes and corporate influences will come in much later, possibly a few years after the CV launches. They would come when it would be too late for another platform to become viable.
That's the worst case scenario, and Valve offering an alternative - even if it proves unnecessary - is still great.
I like prunus girl the best
anime never ;_;
Future soon fellow people
We're already living in it
Except its not pointless at all. I spend hours in Janus VR every night. It's like browsing geocities sites for hours every night like I did in the 90s. This is just the beginning.
Zuckerfuck's an idiot with enough money he could comfortably live the rest of his life in the arctic burning cash for warmth.
Facebook isn't a display manufacturer and they don't want to be. They're going to make their shit proprietary to lock-in developers.
Lets see if I can see my post...ahh there it is, 'Who new hobby here'
I suppose to someone
Its just five minute episodes you can watch it real quick to find out
I have some VR demos with 3d anime girls and it's unbelievable how "real" they look. I always thought they looked like shit on a monitor, but in VR it's a completely different story.
It always makes me laugh when people think all 7 billion humans behave like NEETs.
I mean I do but I realize there are other types of humans.
Well bro, you're in luck because I did EXACTLY what you just described. Lived in Japan for a year, got to my third year of a Comp Sci program. Then I threw it all away when I got my hands on a DK1. Working on a turned based strategy game for Gear VR right now , success is very uncertain and I'm living like a hobo. But the thrill is incredible. This industry is moving so fast, everything is so exciting and I feel like I'm in the greatest revolution since the dot com boom. (please don't let that be foreshadowing)
Why has nobody considered the possibility of VR INGRESS?
>Walk near a place
>See a giant beacon of light based on the faction alignment of the portal
>Run up to a resonator
>Activate your inventory from VR
>Pull out an XMP burster
>Push a virtual button on it to activate
>Blow that nigga the fuck up
>Conquer the portal in the name of the glorious rebel alliance
The future is truly the greatest possible.
Probably one of the few good ideas I've heard of in regards to this type of VR.
I want spooky games as well. Less jump scare, more psychological games. A little jump scare is good too.
A game where you have to run away from an individual stalking you would be pretty good. Like a super Clock Tower type game.
Because as cool as that is to think about having two people have a laser pen fight in a public place with giant computer goggles on isn't the best idea. It'd be a hit at college campuses though.
The biggest fucking buzzkill there is right now is that VR headsets are GOOD TO FUCKING GO for flight sims, as in perfectly suited, but we still can't fucking handle the cockpit switches. And you need a full HOTAS gear set to not need to take the goggles off and fiddle with keys and dials.
general word is that 2D characters in 3D look better than expected.
There's not any portals near my house, but it's bretty good at my university. Everyone one of the buildings there has its own portal, so I can kinda chill out and hack them when on break or whatever.
A few other people I know play it as well, so I have people to compete against.
I've played affected and it was really well done. There is a scene where you walk into a large mansion lobby type area with a dual staircase, and all the objects in the room started floating upwards, along with the grand piano playing along to some eerie tune. Was intensely immersive.
Another one I have heard really good things about is Dreadhalls.
Come with me and you'll be
In a world of pure simulation
Take a look and you'll see
Into your imagination
We'll begin with a spin
Traveling in the world of loli-fication
What we'll see will defy
If you want to view paradise
Simply hook it up and load it
Any waifu you want , do it
Want to screw a futa? There's nothing to it
There is no life I know
To compare with pure stimulation
Living there, you'll be free
If you truly with to be
>We'll begin with a spin
>Traveling in the world of loli-fication
Oh my god i need this in my life right now.
Its a world of pure imagination anon, if you can dream it, you can have it.
>Mixed with http://todaywriter.com/touchable-3d-invisible-ultrasonic-haptic-feedback/ on a room-wide scale
I wish some developer would make a Second life type game with VR support and modern graphics. I'm sick of all these shitty demos.
I don't think my body can handle the oncoming golden age
>tfw you lose your e-virginity before all your friends
>That unspoken elephant in the room in the next few years when you know all your friends have their VR waifu sex games but nobody says anything
too much... all these advancements man...
>tfw you fuck your friends virtually on the daily
John Carmack needs to be eddited out for obvious reasons.
The irony is actually beautiful.
>tfw 3 seashells soon
>vocalising technology is improved for VR
>ends up being used everywhere else, starving the voice actors assholes and not limiting games on how much money you can shower them with
She doesn't have to love me back.
The AI behind her behaviour just have to be good enough at pretending.

A real woman can't be programmed to stay faithful though.
>International students arrive.
>Think its my chance.
>They all casually mention wanting tall, white, blond guys.
>Actually watch one of them get rejected by a classmate.
Fuck you. Designing waifus is half the reason I'm doing this degree. The other half is so I can die alone on a mountain of money.
>Not already having a vocaloid as your waifu
>Elder Scrolls games will still only have 4 voice actors
>A real woman can't be programmed to stay faithful though.
Have you tried?
Do you think the advent of "virtual" sex will cause a decline in child molestation, or sex offenses among minors?
I'd imagine a Pedophile would certainly like to act on his desires, so why not channel it through a virtual medium as opposed to a real one?
>Doesn't remember what happened last time.
I know what you're talking about, only sadness awaits those that believe this will really make things any better.
I think we should let them enjoy the hype train while it lasts.
Me and my friends already discuss our sadpanda favorites lists over bong rips. get better friends. Fuck, the first thing I did when I found out futabu got an adaptation was fucking tell my friends.
>implying last time wasn't the most fun I've had on /v/ in a long time
No because there will be law against rendering kids in VR.
At this point i suspect anti-pedophilia groups don't want to truly fight pedophilia because if they win they'll have no reason to exist anymore.
It would if anti-pedo fanatics allowed it to exist.
>no you're not allowed to act out your fantasies in a non-harmful way
>you just have to die! K thanks.
I'm not a kiddy fucker but that logic is so retarded.
Fuck, imagine some virtual 2d oneesan domming you and the entire thing uses both the headset and lossless binaural audio to give you earth-shattering boners money is no longer an object, I will take out a loan for this device if need be.
Hey, we just found another positive. People are going to actually go looking for a job in order to have this thing.
It's going to be awesome. After an entire day of sitting in front of a computer doing the grunt work, you return to your home, you put on your VR glasses, and just relax while your waifu services you.
I just want a Poison simulation
where it simulates her cornering you in a dark dirty alley and raping you from behind, would use the dildo attachment and VR headset and just be all around the best thing ever.
Tested have their interview and impressions footage out with Valve, its pretty interesting.
>Do you think the advent of "virtual" sex will cause a decline in child molestation, or sex offenses among minors?
No, pedoshits who don't go around fucking children still won't, while the ones who do won't be turned away by VR children. At least not in any number worth measuring.
the VR age will be silly
>fucking you're waifu
>parents come in, you don't notice
also, there'll be VR addicts that don't want to come back to reality if this really catches on
>not wanting to slam your qt vr shota husbando's boypussy
all I know is I want to fuck Len and Rin when I get my hands on some VR equipment
I'd do this, but morbid curiosity always gets me, and for sub-10k view videos, comments tend to be okayish.
It's everything I was promised would happen if I started a real family.
>I'm an ephebophile
What's the word if you're an ephebophile but not exclusively? I'd imagine most men are that.
That's strange. Seems Gaben has a goatee now just like Gordon Fr--
The thing is, this is simple shit you could do immediately with a used DK1 and some earbuds. Binaural audio is already fucking amazing. Just combine that with current 3D fap material and boom. Whatever device you want can go right on top. I wonder how that ultrasonic haptic feedback thing feels on your dick.
>post yfw divorce rates skyrocket as advances in porn technology strain traditional relationships with competing alternatives
You can simulate the experience right now by putting on swimming goggles and trying to play along with that one where your imouto blows into your ears to wake you up, but you're only pretending to sleep. :^)
>Virtual buildings could be constructed and dismantled within moments
The practical applications of this would be beyond imagination.
That's a very good question. I'm nearly-exclusively attracted to women like any other heterosexual, but I also find myself attracted to feminine boys around the age of 13.
I don't think that most people are like me, though.
>That last few seconds
>The future of giantess porn is here
I want to put an animation together in MMD right now
I have a question that might be really obvious so sorry if I'm an idiot.
Will current games and demos that were developed for the Oculus work with the Valve thing? That is going to be a huge deciding factor when I choose which one to get.
Nigga just let me play Ruse with my hands. That would be cool as shit and the gameplay is just simple enough to work. Zoom in by getting fucking closer. You thing Eugen would be based enough to do that?
>All those new stories about how technology is going to destroy humanity just because some guys dropped their bitch partners for VR
VR is going to be the next target of Fox news and the like, well, VR waifus/sex simulators.
So do you like feminine girls too? Or just boys? If it's the latter I honestly don't believe you, mainly because it doesn't make a lot of sense.
Doesn't mean you're lying but still.
>Imp[lying all the waifufags of the VR age don't just ban together to hack her hard drive and get their e-dicks back
It'll be just like that tv special of the Fairy Odd Parents where Timmy Turner goes through a series of webs and hacks the internet
Most likely they would have support for competing VRs.
It depends on the tech specs of each VR device. Certain things wouldn't be able to work if the specs are wildly different.
Take Morpheus for example, that will have a different pool of software most likely.
every time I think about utility fog, I want to keep living instead of giving up
but then I realize it won't be a thing during my (useful, mobile) lifespan
>go to /v/
>see tons of anime girls
>decide to jack off to hentai
>realize that real women are better
>finish to a wide-hipped, big-tittied latina squirting while fucking herself with a dildo.
I could never get behind this "waifu age" shit. I'm sorry, but we just didn't evolve to fuck 2D women.
The complete opposite always happens to me.
>Why would feminists care about sexbots?
The female feminists care because then guys will just get their lay on with the robots
The male feminists care because they want to get laid by the female feminists, and think that by supporting them they'll get their dicks wet in return.
Damn it, now I have to hear teabaggers whine about how they're right about everything. As long as I get my waifu I guess I don't care.
>tfw they fuck Ayn Rand in VR
Do games have problems with different monitors?
It's a display anon.
I imagine the worst it would be like is working with different video cards or some such. It's all the same OS/architecture.
This. I got married too soon. This is going to ruin my everything and I don't even care.
