In this week's episode of Neil's Messy Basement, we get indepth knowledge of their new eye-tracked HMD, supporting platforms, and things to come. Also...Master Yoda gives his sales predictions for this holiday season.
Last weekend, we released MTBS' Ultimate VR Shopping Guide. We wanted something that would appeal to traditional consumers that didn't necessarily know the first thing about computers or virtual reality.
Part of this guide focused on the shopping experience. MTBS secret shopped to see how VR was being showcased and how customers are reacting. We learned that in the case of Best Buy Canada, EB Games Canada, and Amazon, their available VR demonstrations are very limited. More importantly, they have a no return policy for open box VR equipment. Amazon is a potential exception because they negotiate on a case by case basis.
