Comic-Con Gets VR Fever

Virtual reality was — pardon the cheap pun — everywhere you looked at this year's SDCC. Mattel set up a studio-apartment-sized space for its VR update on the classic View Finder. The Last Ship spent eight weeks throwing together a first person shooter for Oculus Rift. Legendary Pictures' VR wing and SyFy's The Expanse handed out Google Cardboard kits like bread crumbs at a duck pond. But all of those were straight-to-video rentals compared to the blockbuster demos from Sony and HTC. At the off-site venue Nerd HQ, the former's Project Morpheus let players fire machine guns at Russian mobsters during a high speech freeway chase in London Heist: Getaway. Meanwhile, several blocks away, the latter's Vive trailer offered a delightful Portal spin-off. With both system hitting the market in the next year, it may not be too long before no one has to physically come to San Diego at all. DM
