Samsung is very clear that virtual reality has a future and has decided to bet strongly by supporting a multitude of developers to generate content for Gear VR, which will go on sale in just a few weeks. The Innovator Edition version is intended for the most enthusiastic users and is the first commercial product powered by Oculus.
We read in Korea Herald that Samsung’s goal is to create a software ecosystem for Gear VR as soon as possible, financially supporting developers to generate content. Specifically, they are talking about certain Korean developers, three companies to be exact, who are preparing titles that have not yet been revealed. On the other hand, some of the creators of the most popular demos for Oculus Rift, such as Dreadhalls and Titans of Space, already have development kits and are adapting titles known to the Oculus community for the launch of the Samsung viewer.
With Gear VR, the Oculus content portal will debut and a virtual cinema that we are looking forward to trying, since the resolution of the Note 4 will significantly improve the experience of watching a movie on the DK2. Recall that the creator of the first virtual cinema for Oculus Rift DK1 is Korean and now works for Oculus, with which we expect a much improved version of it and fully optimized for the new Samsung flagship.
