  • Decoding VR – The Most Hyped And Least Understood Emerging Market

    Yoshio Osaki, President at IDG Consulting, delivers a Superstar Session at VR Connects San Francisco 2017.

    Despite all of the hype and buzz surrounding VR over the past several years, the VR gaming market is still poorly understood by many observers. 2016’s commercial launch year for some of VR’s key platforms was marked by disappointment, with 2017 still clouded in uncertainty over the future trajectory of the category, the key catalysts and drivers, as well as the risk factors that could prevent VR from ever reaching its full potential. In this presentation, IDG Consulting’s President, Yoshio Osaki, walks you through the major trends in VR gaming, with insights into key players, monetization trends, industry best practices, comparative analysis between Asia VR versus Western VR, and IDG’s outlook for VR gaming’s future.

  • VR: I’m Ready For My Close-up

    Noah Falstein, Independent Game Designer, delivers a Superstar Session at VR Connects San Francisco 2017.

    Any presentation about the impact of VR is brimming with words like “immersion”, “pervasive” and “presence”, but not always with much thought to what those mean in terms of the way our brains work, or why VR feels fundamentally different from previous technologies. Neuroscience gives us some very interesting insights about how games interact with our brains, and how elements like head tracking, eye tracking, physical proximity and other experiences possible in VR can evoke those reactions. This talk will delve into those insights, and what it may mean for storytelling and gameplay in VR, both with existing and emerging technologies.

Steve has been a games journalist on and off since the first PlayStation made games ‘cool’, but he’s never forgotten the thrill of finding a Space Invaders machine in the wild. Neuromancer is one of his favourite books and The Matrix is one of his favourite movies, so he’s been ready for VR all his life.
