It seems that many believe that virtual reality could be a new way in which we could be gaming in the future, which might explain why companies such as Facebook paid $2 billion for Oculus, and why HTC might have partnered up with Valve to launch the HTC Vive virtual reality headset, so it does not come as a surprise that developers are starting to come onboard.
Now if you remember the Angry Birds title from your mobile devices, it seems that its developer Rovio showed off a virtual reality demo of the game at the Rock in Rio festival over the weekend. Basically instead of flinging birds at pigs in structures from a side view, the virtual reality version will see you follow the bird as it reaches its target, which we reckon might be a bit unnerving.
The demo was shown off using the Samsung Gear VR headset and is basically a fresh and unique perspective on the game. Unfortunately during the demo, Rovio did not mention if they had any plans to release this particular version of Angry Birds to the public, or if it was more of a demonstration used for promotional purposes.
However like we said, the demo relied on the Samsung Gear VR which at the moment is one of the few VR headsets actually available in the market at the moment, so perhaps Rovio could release it in the future. In the meantime would any of you guys be interested in a VR version of Angry Birds?
