Samsung Gear VR ‘superior to first-gen Oculus’, Climax claims

Samsung’s recently unveiled Gear VR headset offers an experience superior to the first generation Oculus Rift, according to Climax’s technical director.

The VR tech is the result of a partnership with Samsung and Oculus, and is powered by the technology developed by the now Facebook-owned company. Since its unveiling, a number of developers have announced their intentions to develop games for the device.

One of those companies is UK studio Climax. Develop spoke to its technical director James Sharman about what developing for the VR headset has been like, and how big virtual reality gaming can be on mobile.
