HI-TECH NEWS with #virtual reality hashtag

The world's biggest technology showcase CES (the Consumer Electronics Show) is held every year in Las Vegas over the last 50 years. New 2017 is not an exception – the event ran from January 5 to January 8. 

Let’s face it, the state of virtual reality gaming isn’t looking so great these days. Though the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive managed to sell out rather quickly upon each of their respective releases, sales of the two devices have pretty much flatlined. The initial hype got early adopters to jump on board and buy units in droves, but the current sales numbers tell us that consumers just aren’t interested in VR gaming. Some believed this technology would usher in a new era of innovation for games, but it appears that VR is turning out to be the fad most (myself included) said it would be.

Virtual reality, the long-awaited dream of gamers everywhere, has finally arrived. Compared to the earlier versions of virtual reality in the 1990s, today's virtual reality is far more immersive thanks to major advances in graphics, audio and computer technology. Here's a look at the top VR systems and the VR games 2016 has in store.

There’s no doubt that virtual reality is one of the hottest trends of the moment, with a lot of the top companies in the tech industry currently investing in it. Basically, VR, as it’s shortened, refers to computer-simulated reality, replicating an environment that simulates a physical presence in places in an imagined world, allowing the user to interact with it. The concept is far from being new, since it’s been presented and discussed in tech communities for a few years.
