Oculus announced a total of 30 virtual reality games will be available when its Rift headset becomes available on March 28th. There are a couple of big names on the list but also a bunch of low-cost titles. Those who pre-ordered the Rift headset get EVE: Valkyrie and Lucky's Tale for free.
In related news, Oculus founder Palmer Luckey cautioned developers to be realistic about success. Speaking at the Game Developers Conference (GDC), Luckey explained he's very optimistic about virtual reality but warned not to believe the most optimistic things the financial analysts say because adopting virtual reality is not a guarantee for success. He urged developers to get involved with virtual reality as it may get huge in the future but advised to scale efforts appropriately and to be realistic about success.
"I wish I could come up on this stage and tell you that virtual reality is going to change everything, it's all going to be for the better, nobody is going to fail and you're going to make so much money if you get involved in virtual reality," the 23 year old told the audience. "The actual truth is that we don't know how things are going to play out. We know there are going to be a lot of successes, but the likelihood is that there are also going to be a lot of failures, it's really the same of anyone else in the games industry. There's a lot of optimism, but the rubber hasn't really hit the road yet."
