Check this videos out. Simon Sayers published a video in which his wife filmed him playing VR horror game for the first time. You can see the reaction and you can clearly see how immersive VR game can be. Did you see anything like that on a non-VR game?
That’s the best VR promotion video I’ve seen so far. This video can certainly convince people to get the PSVR. It transfers the emotions that you can expect to feel when you play a game, better than just showing a gameplay trailer that really cannot tell us how it feels playing the game without actually trying it ourselves.
I didn’t think bout it this way, but you are right. People who see this video will want to feel the same when playing games.
