    AMD and Bethesda are joining forces in order to bring more VR titles and make them better than anything already on the VR market.

    AMD's corporate vice president Roy Taylor has said that Bethesda's upcoming Fallout 4 VR title will be a "ground-breaking VR title" that will change the industry.

    Speaking at VR World Congress, Taylor likened Fallout 4 VR to "the Mario, the Sonic the Hedgehog" of the VR industry. "It will change the way we think about VR," he said. "It will be an industry changer."



    Fallout 4 VR is currently due for release sometime this year, with Bethesda vice president Pete Hines saying earlier this year it will be playable at this year's E3 conference.

    Taylor also said that wires are one of the biggest challenges the VR industry faces today, something that AMD hopes to rectify with its newly announced partnership with Nitero, a chip manufacturer specialising in wireless VR.



    "They're an inhibitor to what should be giving great freedom of movement," said Taylor. "One of the most important things we do next is get rid of those pesky wires. I'm very pleased to tell you that AMD has come up with a solution."

    Using multi-gigabit transmission and integrated bean forming, Nitero has been specifically tailored to transmit stereoscopic video at "unheard of latencies." At the moment, Nitero is targeting next-gen VR devices rather than the current gen headsets, but when the technology does eventually arrive, it says it will offer integrated wireless that will completely revolutionise the consumer experience, so much so that "they'll never tolerate wires again".

    Those are great news indeed. I hope they are right and this is not just another marketing scheme.

    I though the same, are great news, I think AMD is doing great these days and they need to keep going with the hype and if they are into VR that much (recently bought a VR company and now with this alliance) maybe they are up to something good.

    Let's hope so. But I would like a headset to be very popular so that VR development and adoption could thrive. Not more and more different Headsets, which leads to fragmentation.

    I really feel that Fallout will see the true return to VR for the media outlets.

    Ive definitely noticed alot less articles related to VR on the gaming sites I visit so it would be nice to have it abit more in the spotlight. Im fully expecting E3 to have a heavy focus but I can see Fallout spear heading it. Also helps when its a great game

    Maybe (hopefully) there are less articles about VR gaming because VR is getting in another areas too.

    I'm not as active in this forum as I was a few weeks ago but I try to keep reading info about VR and the news are arriving all the time, but not as much as the gamaing but all around everything, also the lack of new devices makes the market looks like it's more quiet than usual but a lot is going on right now.

    I disagree. We don't need new devices, we need more quality content.

    As a gamer I'm mega excited on how it can improve them.

    For over things I'm more inclined to MR (mixed reality) personally, I cant wait until the new windows 10 devices start to hit, the tech of hololens at the price of a Rift to me is amazing but then we can still have to full immersion that we get to experience now.

    Not what I meant​.

    When I said about the lack of new devices I did mention it because when a device is released​ there is a lot of marketing around and right now the home target is mostly for game enthusiasts, so there is a lot of gaming marketing around.

    Remember gaming is a small area of VR, so in other areas there is a lot of news, like medical, education, military (sadly), arts, events and more.

    I was referring to those areas.

    I agree we have more than enough devices to chose already and a lot to be released anytime soon.

    Perhaps he meant to say better and cheaper devices? Certainly the tech is still in it's relative infancy, and with pricing and content quality at the present level, it's really a niche market for the true enthusiasts. Sony might be changing that slightly, but as the OP pointed out, wires and the whole complicated setup are a huge deterrent to casual gamers...

    That to me is why microsofts VR efforts are the most exciting. If they have managed to get all of the videlity of the vive and its sensors into 1 contained unit the adoption rate could increase immediately.
    Also project scorpio being as powerful as it is offering a no compromise experience without hard setup and supposedly not being restricted to 1 headset helps immensely as average joe could be more willing to try, which in term brings more developers.
    But more importantly for Scorpio the inclusion of the Windows 10 OS being baked in means the apps/experience could be made for both console and PC with very little extra effort.

    I understand what you mean chemy about its more than just gaming and your right but I still feel mixed reality is more appropriate. A med student could be in a VR environment watching an operation then with the click of a button now its being overlayed onto a living person. I feel for most professions having the content in real life is the most beneficial

    Comparing FO4 VR to Sonic and Mario is huge... those two games defined my childhood. Hopefully it isn't all just talk.

    Wow!!! I would never leave my house if I had this.... I already lost days of my life when it originally came out. If they do an elder scrolls VR that would be the end... my family would never see me again!

    True! I have high hopes for the Scorpio combined with one of the promised 300 $ devices! That should definitely be enough for VR to break to mainstream...!

    While I can't wait for Fallout 4 VR, this article sounded more like an advert for AMD's wireless tech acquisition than an article about Fallout 4 VR.
