I Like That Reddit's Oculus Rift Group Likes the Idea of Second Life Running the Oculus Rift
Nice to see the folks in Reddit's Oculus Rift group enjoying our post on the Rift coming to Second Life. (It was even a top post in the subreddit last week.) Reading through the comments, it occurs to me that this might be a way for hardcore gamers to give Second Life another try (if they've given it any try at all). SL has never performed well enough to attract a large group of FPS or MMO gamers, but the gamers interested in the Oculus Rift, like this guy, might be willing to see it as a virtual reality platform: "I've never tried SL, but this might cause me to give it some thought. I want this to be OASIS, but I suspect I'll be pretty let down." Another Redditor, more bullish:
"I can't help but be skeptical of their level of commitment to this, but I REALLY hope I am wrong and that they are 'all-in' and have the resources to back it up. If they do this right we could actually have a fairly open and free VR metaverse ala Snowcrash/OASIS very soon." Click here to join the discussion.
