What to Expect From the VR World at E3 2017


E3 is just a month away and we were eager to see what are the big names in the VR world ready to show at one of the biggest video game conferences out there. E3 is a great opportunity for the biggest brands to showcase new content and even tech, but, as it seems, we won’t see as much as we’d like to see. Here’s what the big VR names are preparing for E3.

  • HTC Vive

It seems like a great time for Vive to announce its Vive Tracker, more about their ecosystem, or some other kind of dope tech that would make the Vive experience even better than it is now. So far, just like Jon Snow, we know nothing about what Vive is planning for E3 but we know they don’t have a dedicated booth for it yet, which is kinda discouraging. However, we know that Valve is working on a few big VR titles and we expect to see them on HTC Vive.

  • Sony & PlayStation VR

Sony is an experienced exhibitor at E3 so they won’t miss the chance to hold their annual press conference where we expect to hear some serious announcements for the future of the PSVR gaming. They love keeping their secrets and we totally get that. At least they have some secrets that need unwrapping, unlike the next big name, for example.

  • Oculus

Oculus will skip getting a booth at E3 this year for the first time since 2014. This makes sense, though – Oculus doesn’t have new hardware to present, and will most likely let Oculus’ partner developers showcase the upcoming Rift games. Well, it’s still something.

  • Microsoft & Xbox

We’ve been hearing about Project Scorpio for quite a while now, and we couldn’t be more hyped about it, even though it’s basically an Xbox on steroids that has enough hardware power to be VR compatible. It was about time to see a new rivalry between Sony & Microsoft and their consoles so we’re now more eager to take a look at this and almost forgot about the HoloLens. E3 looks like the perfect time for Scorpio and one could only hope Microsoft agree with us.

There’s less than a month left until E3. What are you most excited to see there and what do you think will be the biggest surprise? Share your thoughts with us here on our Facebook page!
