With another year down and another year ahead (Happy New Years VR Porn Lovers!!), it’s next to impossible not to get excited about what 2015 may hold, especially with the very real possibility that this may be the year of the Oculus Rift consumer release! While 2014 certainly had a lot of smaller things to offer in the world of VR porn (I’m looking at you Reddit) and a couple of more substantial titles, such as pg-productions “Playgirls” and Utherverse’s new “Red Light Center 2.0“, we still have yet to see anything truly captivating come from the adult vr genre, but given the amount of interest that virtual reality has gained over the last year, as well as the massive presence in the HMD space at the current CES I would say it’s a safe bet that 2015 will be the biggest year for VR (and of course, VR Porn) yet; and damned if that isn’t something worth freaking out about (everything in moderation).
It is important to remember however, that although Oculus is going into its third year, consumer quality VR is still not really even a thing yet (even the current version of Samsung’s GearVR hardware is labelled as being for “innovators” and isn’t aimed at the general public), so it is understandable that potential developers would want to cut their risks and wait to see how things pan out; even if at this point it is pretty well a sure thing that VR is here to stay. I think it is likely that it will still be at the very least a matter of months before we see things really starting to pick up.
That’s not to say that things aren’t moving along nicely though as far as VR Porn is concerned though. While advancements in that industry have most certainly been somewhat slow moving as far as big-studio content goes, there are some serious players that seem intent on keeping even us early adopters in the loop and part of the fun. XmoonProductions just upgraded their “XStoryPlayer” software to support the DK2 (only available for those who have pledged or donated) and Lollipop VR’s opening demo title “Eve’s moonlight strip” is another good example of how enjoyable a virtual sexual experience can be, even if both still need quite a bit of work; and aside from the sexy software I mentioned earlier – Playgirls and RLC 2.0 – we have the up and coming Club Vixxxen by Otium VR, which although we haven’t tried it yet, looks very good indeed.
Considering how little we had around the same time just one year ago (DK1 anyone?) I’d say things are coming along just peachy.
