You may have been fortunate to attend a tech event within the last few years, such as CES and tried VR. Otherwise, you have probably not tried an Oculus Rift or HTC Vive. VR is something you need to try to really "get it."
HTC announced today you'll shortly be able to try the HTC Vive in limited stores such as Microsoft stores and GameStop.
The first stores with an HTC Vive demo are the Microsoft stores in New York City (flagship store), Washington state (Bellevue Square) and Utah (City Creek Center). Later this week, another HTC Vive demo experience will also be available at the Park Meadows Mall in Colorado. More Microsoft stores will be added throughout this month, with a total of 30 stores planned for this year.
GameStop stores will be available in 10 locations by mid-April. The company, unfortunately, didn’t provide a total number of GameStop stores that will have the demos available.
