VR rigs will become the new Wii thanks to laptops. Just throw everything in a bag and you're ready to party.
Dell subsidiary Alienware claims that virtual reality (VR) laptops will soon compete with established video game consoles like the Nintendo Wii U. The computer hardware company launched its VR-ready Alienware 17, 15, and 13 laptops at the Tokyo Game Show 2016.
VR is all the rage right now, and Alienware is betting on it big time, by making their new line-up of gaming notebooks, ready for VR, and the marketing director Olmsted, claims it will become so popular it will be like the Nintendo Wii console, everyone will buy it!
Well maybe he is right, VR will be so hot, that everyone will buy it, but will it end up being like Wii Sports, sure there was over 160 million sold, but how many ended on staying using it, the same thing could happen with VR, it will be great in sales, but come a couple of years later, we will not even be talking about it anymore, like what happen to 3DTV and the boom it was going to bring to gaming.
