E3 2019 Gets its Very own VR Showcase Event on YouTube

A lot of eyes are on the upcoming E3 gaming conference. Especially for those interested in virtual reality, things could prove to get rather interesting. While PlayStation VR will not be represented – Sony is not showcasing at E3 this year – it seems UploadVR has some big plans for this industry moving forward.

UploadVR Unveils big VR Plans

To put this news in perspective, there will be an E3 VR Showcase. While it is a pre-recorded show, the goal is to reveal new games, trailers, applications, and offer interviews with industry developments. It is somewhat similar to how a Nintendo Direct event would look, but one solely dedicated to virtual reality in all of its facets.

Although this will not necessarily include all VR-related announcement, it is a remarkable decision. No one will deny virtual reality has failed to captivate big audiences for quite some time now. Especially with Sony not showcasing at E3, the biggest game event of the year needed an alternative solution.

Despite the lack of any real appreciation, VR gaming is still in a very good place at this time. Numerous headsets have been released and the upcoming Oculus Quest may help move things along. However, if the industry continues to fail in terms of attracting a lot of users, it may not have much of a future by the time 2022 comes around.

At this time, no official announcements have been made regarding the E3 VR Showcase. No one knows what will be unveiled or which companies will participate in this new event. It will be made available on YouTube as of June 10, yet further information is very scarce. It is something to look forward to, although expectations should be kept in check first and foremost.
