Virtual reality is prepared to have its biggest year yet, with the likes of Samsung, Sony, Google, and Oculus VR set to debut their hardware at some given point in 2015. The question is, are Hollywood studios prepared to keep up with the technology?
Oculus co-founder Palmer Luckey already stated that content is just as vital to the VR experience as the headsets themselves. “Without content, nobody would be interested in this whole virtual reality thing.” So, obviously, having the right content partners in tow would be a crucial move.
Video games will play a big part in that, but Hollywood studios need to keep up, as well, with production studios ready to make the transfer to a whole new world. Variety recently reported on studios truly to make this jump, although some aren’t quite sure exactly where it will go.
