Valve has released a new Steam update for OSVR content which means users will be able to better identify the products available to them. The store will clearly show which games support VR.
VR is a growing market and in the next couple of years, it could become the biggest revenue generator for video game developers. The content is created in short bursts which means it costs less to develop and needs less time to complete. Steam is the leading content provider for PC and is going to play a major role in the development and growth of the VR gaming scene.
Major developers and publishers are working on VR games and even more are interested in VR development. Just recently, Fallout developer Bethesda confirmed a Fallout 4 VR project.
Todd Howard said the following:
That’s the promise of VR, being in a big virtual world. The core experience, meaning you put on the headset and you’re standing in the world of Fallout and can go where you want, just that little bit is every bit as cool as you hope it would be. Once we did that, we were like, ‘OK, we gotta see where this goes’
Bethesda is not concerned about the small size of the VR market, all that concerns the company is creating something unique. Speaking of sales and the size of the VR market, Howard said:
That will all sort itself out. We have an opportunity to make something really unique. We’d rather do that than make some other tiny experience. I don’t think that’s what people want from us.
Where do you see the VR market going? Let us know in the comments below.
