But the virtual suite isn’t a very exciting improvement over reality, especially when you can’t even watch the full game in it. You could argue that you’re getting a “virtual big-screen TV,” but it’ll be a very low-resolution one, and neither the Gear VR nor the standard Google Cardboard headset are very comfortable. LiveLike imagines people passing around the headset at a viewing party, but that’s easier with single VR videos than something with a whole timeline interface.
VR sports videos can be sophisticated and interesting, and the NBA in particular has been doing quality work with companies like Oculus and NextVR. VR social spaces can even let people from distant parts of the world gather for streaming parties. But this experience might be more interesting as a sign of where the industry’s going than as an actual piece of entertainment.(Credit to Adi Robertson@thedextriarchy)
