Oculus suggests a massively multiplayer online experience (MMO) for one billion simultaneous users in VR
May 7, 2014
Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe suggested at the Techcrunch Disrupt event Monday May 5 that Oculus and Facebook could in the future build a massively multiplayer online experience (MMO) for one billion simultaneous users in VR, according to The Verge. It could also be a metaverse that joins disparate virtual worlds.
Oculus hopes to convince players that they’re having a “real conversation” with another person. “Getting to one billion users may also have been the reason Oculus decided to join up with Facebook instead of a traditional gaming company,” The Verge suggests.
