4. Virtual reality sex and the Oculus Rift
If one thing is clear, is that part of the interest in Virtual Reality headsets such as the Oculus Rift is related to the availability of adult games that take place in a VR world. And when Oculus VR founder Palmer Luckey controversially stated that his company won’t block adult content, many people expected that the video game market would be flooded with virtual sex games, which had the moral guardians up in arms, given how sexist the portrayal of female characters in video games has been in the past.
But it seems that the erotic Virtual Reality games market has not taken off yet… As a matter of fact a high profile title like the eagerly awaited Wicked Paradise, which according to its creator was to be an “adult version of Heavy Rain but completely designed for Virtual Reality” was controversially canned, as the developers thought that VR technology was not good enough yet to realize their vision.
