Re: Intel & MLB on Sports
That's exactly how I feel! Of course it won't give you the exact same experience as being there, but it's pretty close!

Re: Will e-sports get a VR boost?
That just made me think about a whole gambling aspect. Could you imagine being in a high stakes poker tournament from the comfort of your own home?

Will e-sports get a VR boost?
I'm wondering if various e-sports will ever get a VR boost. I could imagine gamers playing multi-player sports games could also attract a "virtual audience" if the e-sport got popular enough. VR might also take "Fantasy football/baseball/etc" to another level if "fantasy" games could be realistically produced in VR.

Re: Intel and MLB Add to Sports VR
@afwriter - I completely agree, being able to see the game from player perspectives would really open viewing the games right up. When I was a kid I played catcher and I absolutely loved watching the whole field from that position. It would be great to be able to watch the game from the same advantage now, especially with actual professional players.

Re: Intel and MLB Add to Sports VR
That's true. I really like the idea of being able to watch the game from a player's perspective. That is something that I want to do if I ever have the chance. Imagine experiencing what an NFL quarterback sees right before he throws.

Re: Intel and MLB Add to Sports VR
@afwriter - while VR can put the audience in the stands, I am sure sports teams will stilll  prefer actual fans be present, than everyting be VR. VR fans can't cheer and watching a team from the stand encourages the players. It could also keep the game from being taken seriously.

Re: Intel and MLB Add to Sports VR
VR can be used to put people in the stands or on the field which is really cool. I think that bulky headset is a big thing that is detouring a lot of people from adopting VR. Hopefully, the headsets will become smaller and lighter like other technologies.

Re: Intel & MLB on Sports
I will say one of the benefits of VR for live events is feeling like you are right in the action. Paying for front row seats is expensive, but with VR that experience can easily be replicated.
