Michael Pachter has become something of a celebrity in the gaming industry for both good and bad, and his analyzes are always a matter of discussion.
This time, within the Pachter Factor show , he decided to have his say on virtual reality and in particular on Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR , underlining how both viewers will be, for different reasons, successes.
According to the analyst, Oculus Rift will be successful because it is backed by a giant like Facebook and “Facebook has more money than anyone else and they will spend whatever it takes to make the headset a success. On the other hand, PlayStation VR will prove to be a success for entirely different reasons. The positive side of the headset is that it was created specifically for PS4 and will be able to leverage an installed base of more than 30 million consoles when it launches. “
Furthermore, according to Pachter, the viewer (since it works thanks to the Sony console) will not cost more than the competition and will have the incredible value of not requiring any upgrades and being able to simply work with PS4 . Those who buy a PC viewer will have to have very advanced specifications and in many cases they will have to upgrade their machine.
What do you think of his statements? Do you agree with him or will things turn out differently?
