Any time Walmart makes a move, people take notice. Walmart announced today that they’re making a big move into the VR space by shipping out 17,000 Oculus Go HMDs to its 5,000 store locations. The reason they’re making this move is for employee training purposes. Each Supercenter will receive four HMDs and each Neighborhood Market will get two HMDs.
One of the things that makes PC gaming so great is the how open the industry is. You get to pick the right parts that fit your budget and what you're wanting from your gaming hobby, but sometimes this open nature can lead to fragmentation.
