AR/VR Weekly
One of the highlights of the 2019 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), gaming’s most hyped trade show of the year, is UploadVR’s E3 Showcase. In a tidy hour, our syndication partner at UploadVR delivered a raft of news on the latest and greatest VR games along with some good interviews from developers.
At one point, this video presentation drew 16,000 concurrent viewers – an excellent showing for something no one has done before. I can’t imagine Upload won’t be able to build on this next year.
But where will it fit? The VR show already felt crammed-in before the PC Gaming Show, my favorite of the E3 streams. With most onlookers believing Sony will be back in 2020, does E3 have room for UploadVR’s Showcase?
Yes, it does. It has plenty.
The hype was too much for VR in 2016, but since people have stopped talking about the emerging tech’s death, it’s carved out a nice niche. E3 can be a busy show, but it has more than enough room for VR.
The question now is – do you have enough room in your E3 schedule for VR?
