For a while you have been following the news about VR (Virtual Reality) gaming, while it was unsuccessful (to put it lightly) in the 90s, much has changed since then due to tremendous technological advances. Anyone who tried it in the 90s (including yours truly) would tell you the technology was simply not ready so the experience was nowhere near expectations. The good news is that much like the dotcom bubble, some things are inevitable. The maturity of VR is just as inevitable as how we have worldwide access to the internet. The possibilities for each are endless once they are widely adopted (it's easy to take for granted how you managed to find this article and are now reading this with a simple search). Due to the lessons learned from the past, even the most eager sees the danger in pushing the technology ahead of time.  The caveat is knowing that hardware is not the only determining factor in the maturity of VR. What good is VR when you've only got two games available? That why Oculus has gone to great length to make sure there is an abundance of developers and partners to make sure this time around you see history in the making. Exciting times! ASUS ROG is just as excited to take gaming to the next level!
