    IBM - Virtual Reality MMO - Sword Art Online: The Beginning - IT'S HAPPENING!

    official site: http://www.vrmmo-project.jp/



    While we don't know much about what the VR game will actually be like, it will come with at least one unique twist: players will be scanned to create a 3D model for their in-game avatar. The Beginning will also use some kind of motion control in place of a traditional game controller, letting you use your body to interact with the virtual world. The game looks to be in the early stages — the trailer primarily shows clips from the show and not the game, and features an old Oculus Rift DK2 headset.
    Can't believe it. Of course development will take awhile, but I didn't actually think this'd happen anytime soon.

    The game as we know now will act essentially as if we're using a wII system with VR-Headset on. Using physical movement instead of controller. The extent of the physical movement required is not yet known.

    Website references with more early speculation:

    Being in a virtual anime world sounds like a fucking nightmare to be honest.

    I would be interested if it weren't for the anime. Nothing good can come of that.

    Base the game on the world and all but keep the characters out of it. I'll keep my eyes on this since it might be a gate opening for future things like this.
    It's easier to find a thousand flaws in someone than to find one in yourself.

    to soon the technology is still in development and not ready for a vr mmo.

    The googles are still to heavy ,expansive and the runtime is only around 6h.

    Not to forget that most pc dont even have the hardware to support VR at the moment.

    Well at least the world will get some valuable date for further projects.

    it's not full dive. it's a step in the right direction, but we need to go further.

    It won't float. Ver few people have a computer that can run VR and even less people are willing to buy a new computer just to be able to play a game. They would have better luck waiting for a new generation console to do it in 5 years.

    And that is looking past the horrible anime with one of the most unlike able main characters in the history of anime and a complete disinterest in any kind of story pacing.

    Scan the player in as an avatar?

    Prepare for waves of lanky or overweight people in the game...!

    While this is destined to be an ambitious but ultimately disappointing first foray into the world of VR MMOs, it'll be a necessary stepping stone before future games pull off something similar a few years down the line.

    Ten years from now we might be able to get excited about a good VR MMO coming out.

    Meh, I know this will be bad...I'll only try it so I can hear people in trade chat cry while I laugh playing legion!

    I Might be evil...but I AM PART OF THE LEGION!

    Everything has to start somewhere. If it takes off with early adapters, it's a good thing for gaming I'd say.

    I'm not into the whole VR scene but I'm sure it'll be fun for those that enjoy it. Here are two pictures from their site, showing a few 3d assets. Sorry they're a little big.
