To me I see it as not everyone can afford some of the games or has a Flash Boy to play them. This is also makes it easier for people to use emulation to capture clear footage of games without needing a bunch of equipment.

I kid I kid, and I get it. For me it just takes away the experience of the amazing 3D graphics that the lasers trick us into :) but I get it for the purposes of development and testing on a computer!

Oh I agree. Nothing will ever beat playing the real thing. I made a USB controller for emulating purposes but I think this would be better so no controllers need to be sacrificed.

VB controller USB adapter housing design completed. Ordering the first prototypes now. Likely to be a spin but fingers crossed. :-)

Thanks. Parts are being made now. 5 sets on their way by end of the week. It only took about a day to design so not too bad. I'll update again when I have assembled units.

I think the VB controller is great, so if it's cool, I would like to order one as well! :-D

Well, the VB doesn't have any lasers, but there are VB emulators that are compatible with current VR headsets. They work... okay. Honestly, it isn't the best for a bunch of technical reasons involving pixel ratios. But it is the best many people can do.

The best reason, though, is for developers to test their games.
