Oculus on Platform-exclusive VR Content: ‘it’s the only viable way to jumpstart the market’

Earlier this month we saw a slew of new Oculus Touch game announcements.

Last month’s Connect 3 conference saw the reveal of ambitious (and exclusive) new VR content for Oculus Touch, like Robo Recall, Arktika.1, and Lone Echo.

VR Porn Movie Companies Lead The Way Forward

While many act as if Virtual Reality will be driven only by tech companies who create new gear, or gaming companies that produce interactive content, if the history of the Internet has proven anything so far… it’s that porn will be one of the driving forces that pushes VR from the early adopter phase toward mass acceptance.
