VR offers a variety of new creative opportunities, not simply a new way to make games. For instance StudioDisrupt has created a VR movie called Please State Your Name about a decapitated robot's head in a garbage dump. While the movie has a script which it runs through, you have the freedom to move your perspective around the world. While this may not sound overly interesting, Kyle over at [H]ard|OCP has watched this movie 25 or 30 times this week even before embarking on this review so there must be something to it. Check out their full look at the performance of AMD and NVIDIA cards in this VR movie by following that previous link. A second version of the movie is available for those using their cellphone as a VR headset, somewhat more limited but seeing as how the movie is free you should take the opportunity.
"Please State Your Name is not a game, it is not really an "experience" either, but rather a short film done in a Virtual Reality world, which puts you right in the middle of the story. This genre of VR is where AMD has been putting a lot of its resources. Can we expect the Radeon RX 480 to show us its VR prowess once again?"
