Virtual reality communication company AltspaceVR wants to up the nerd-factor in your next D&D session with v20, a social software allowing you and your digital friends to use Oculus Rift headsets to play D&D around a virtual table. 

It seems pretty counter-intuitive for a game about imagination, but this software lets you, by means of avatars, feel like you're sitting at a table in real life with your friends. There are loads of 2D options out there if you're looking for a way to virtually play D&D, but only this one will let you do it in 3D. 



The software has been endorsed by Wizards of the Coast, and a commercial build is expected to be released in 2016.

Zero Latency's free roaming VR room combines an Oculus Right, a computer you carry on your back, and motion sense to put players directly into games. If you get too close to a wall or another player, the game warns you with visual cues and you're not allowed to run (for your own safety), but otherwise it's like you're really inside the level you're playing.

Sony renames Project morpheus to Playstation VR.

Sony officially unveiled the consumer title for the Project Morpheus during the Tokyo Game Show Sept. 15.

We've known about the virtual reality helmet and even its first quarter 2016 release window for some time, but during their Tokyo Game Show keynote, Sony execs got specific about the intention of the device. They renamed it the Playstation VR.

Forbes provides further details:

First announced back in March 2014 at the Game Developers Conference, Sony's Oculus Rift rival is powered by the Japanese giant's latest console – the PlayStation 4 – so the official moniker makes sense.

"The name 'PlayStation VR' not only directly expresses an entirely new experience from PlayStation that allows players to feel as if they are physically inside the virtual world of a game, but it also reflects our hopes that we want our users to feel a sense of familiarity as they enjoy this amazing experience," said Masayasu Ito, EVP, Division president of PS Product Business and VP, Software Design Division.

"We will continue to refine the hardware from various aspects, while working alongside third party developers and publishers and SCE Worldwide Studios, in order to bring content that deliver exciting experiences only made possible with VR."



Virtual reality is on its way, folks. And there are many, many options between this Playstation VR, the Oculus Rift, HTC/Valve's Vive, Microsoft's Hololens and more. Let's hope this variety of product provide more than disappointment.



As the video game industry prepares for what could possibly be a massive shift in the medium, Time magazine revealed its cover story on virtual reality Aug. 6.

Unfortunately, many proponents of the new technology thought it disgraced the upcoming products and was counterproductive to get mainstream VR success.

The Internet just thought it was funny.
