CFO says publisher will back pioneering tech if big hurdle overcome

EA: Virtual reality devs must fix motion sickness

Publisher EA has said it will be right at the forefront of virtual reality if the technology takes off – but a big hurdle remains before that can happen.

“The challenge is if you are at all even slightly motion sick prone, it’s very tough," EA CFO Blake Jorgensen said in a talk at the 2014 UBS Global Technology Conference, GameSpot reports.

"I’ve seen people within 30 seconds have to take the goggles off because … it is so immersive. It’s an incredible experience and I think there’s a huge opportunity but there’s some technology steps that have to be played out and I think so ways to make sure people enjoy it but don’t get sick by it too quickly."

None of which means EA isn’t actively investigating the technology, however.
