Companies from Facebook Inc. to Sony Corp. and Google Inc. have spent billions of dollars investing in virtual-reality technology.
Now they have to turn it into a business. To get consumers to buy their devices, Sony, Facebook’s Oculus VR, Valve Corp. and Razer USA Ltd. need games to play and videos to watch. At this week’s Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, they’ll be trying to convince software makers there’s a market to be had.
“The market for virtual reality is very hot right now, and a lot of highly visible developers, designers and investors are placing bets,” van Dreunen said. “However, in the absence of solid delivery dates from the leading companies in the space, it is clear that virtual reality is not yet ready for prime time.”
