Eve: Echoes is in open beta now and those screenshots and video are pretty on par with what Eve Online was. And it is a MMO as well. But no connects to old accounts. I have seen some pretty convincing ports of older PC and console games as well.
They really have a lot of specs to play with now. If I was going to design, I would stick with single player RPG’s rather than MMO’s just because mobile means sporadic gamers versus hardcore dependable players. A WoW or even EQ level of player base would still end up in PUG’s all too often.
I picked up a MIFI controller and it works well. Not sure why more developers don’t code for it. Because I think it would be leaps and bounds for gaming. Same thing for keyboard controls from either a Bluetooth KB or Apple’s Smart Cover. The resources are there just not utilized. When that changes and maybe the VR equipment will spur it on, mobile gaming will open way up.

Ah! To tell the truth.
Looks alright. But none of that makes me want to go out and get a VR set. I think mostly, its an age thing, or likely just because dont play videogames as much anymore. Or maybe, nothing really appealing out there. And the tech has gotten better, but its not there yet.
You know what they need to do? Make all the FPS and the next big call of duty games, on the VR. I see why they dont do it, not that big of a market as it stands, and also the limitations on the hardware. But if there trying to push the new VR stuff, games sell consoles, and they can sell VR gear consoles also.
Just make the new call of duty black ops or whatever for the VR. And finally that whole FPS ie First Person Shooter genera. May actually have some truth to it, and actually be first person, games like that are practically made for VR. May help boost sales as well. But like I said, dont think the technology is there yet with VR to really peak and dazzle the masses interests just yet, maybe next gear and console cycle.
