You want us to put on the VR headset? Sure, but we won't settle for anything less than content greatness

You’re not eyeing a virtual reality headset because it’ll complement your look. It’s not a fashion statement, it’s not even a fashion murmur.

Look at 3D TV (or don’t, like most of us)—people aren’t willing to wear special glasses if the content isn’t exceptional. A hesitant attitude toward virtual reality likely isn’t technopanic, but fear of a ‘meh' experience unworthy of spending big bucks on.
