Bubbles Posted February 25, 2018 Share Posted February 25, 2018 Every city around mine has One VR Arcade Center, and they are the newest fun thing around! seeing there isn't one in my city, I thought of opening one. All those VR Arcades in the surrounding cities are ran by SpringBoardVR Booking and Management Software, and the said software offers pay-per-minute deals on about 100 games/apps. After legthy research, I downloaded the VivePort Arcade manager to try it before I dip into this venture, and it is flawless (it is for management but not for booking, I still need a separate booking software). My complaint isn't about the booking, I do not mind a separate booking software; my complaint is about the Content. SpringBoard VR offers 8 games/apps for free! And that is SUITABLE seeing that it offers - among other titles - the Arcade Center to use Google 'Earth' and 'RecRoom' FOR FREE. Why can't VivePort Arcade offer these for free? They are also ABSOLUTELY FREE on PlayStation VR. Google Earth VR, Google Tilt Brush, The Lab, and RecRoom SHOULD BE FREE for the Arcade, they were made to be FREE! If I open a VR Arcade I will Anulally spend $30,000 on Rent, $16,000 on bills, $24,000 on a Helper at min.wage, and about $20,000 on equipments for 5 stations and other Equipment/Furnature, AND GET NOTHING FOR FREE? It will cost $100,000 for the first year and me working full time and I get NOT A SINGLE GAME LICENSE to utilize for free? Even the FREE apps and games that were meant to be free by the developers? The 3 free demos included in the VivePort Arcade are not full game, diverse experiences; they are part of a single game of battling an AI Cube in one Environment/Engine. This sucks I would be opening a VR Arcade that eventually turns 'enthusiasts' into people who buy their own HTC VR Equipment, not repeating customers - this is all because once they save a $1,000 they would upgrade the GPU cards on their PCs and buy their own HTC Headsets. But even for that type of 'giving public an exposure into the technology', we don't even get One Meaningful experience for FREE. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
