Am I like totally out of the loop? Yeah, wait, don’t answer that, I know I am. 😦 Still it occurs to me the whole VR and Oculus hype is kinda over before it even started or made it to the mainstream.
Same appears to be happening to SL’s more fancy brother, Sansar. Last I heard was people getting invited to an ultra early alpha version … and then nothing any more.
I know I’m admittedly out of the loop and not hot on the heels of techy infos and virtual reality and all that stuff. But I’m reading a lot of Second Life and computerish blogs and websites, so I guess I would notice once Sansar opens with big fanfare or any newnesses about it really. But no. Nothing in my inbox or in my dawn patrol. Octopus and Sansar are like non-entities, like an already forgotten wildfire.
Oh no, hang on. Wait. One thing I’ve heard about the Octopus: Sales figures are going doooown … and so do the prices. I mean, of course the price must come down. 300 moneys for a fukn misconstructed plastic goggle you can’t even peek thru? That’s a bit steep isn’t it? If it was a stylish sunglasses, ok. But this fugly thing in BDSM harness? And all that only to get into a new virtual
world thingie with some gimmicks? Never would I buy that shit!
What about you, dearios? Any Orcablog readers have invested into this Octopussy thing? Why? You got too much money and no idea what to do with it? Or are you truly excited about Sansar? Please share your experience so far and if you think it was money well spent.
