Virtual reality is getting bigger by the day, and there’s loads of new VR arcades opening up across the world. Now, one of the gaming industry’s legends, Sega, appears to be planning to open a dedicated virtual reality floor in it its Tokyo arcade centre.
2017年5月31日(木)10時OPENを予定しておりました「SEGA VR AREA AKIHABARA」ですが機材の不具合が確認されたためサービスを延期することといたしました。大変ご迷惑をおかけすることを深くお詫び申し上げます。サービス開始時期は改めてご案内させて頂きます。 https://t.co/DhhwUbY3kY

Just last week, Sega went to Twitter to announce that due to equipment issues, the VR area’s launch on the 10th of May had to be postponed. Even for a huge company like Sega, virtual reality isn’t a very simple thing to set up – and many people in the VR field won’t be surprised. There hasn’t been any word on what sort of virtual reality headsets or additional equipment and experiences that will be available as of yet.
One thing that we do know is that Sega had launched its own virtual reality game in the Hatsune Miku experience which rolled out on PlayStation VR back in 2016, and that could possibly be one thing out of a lot that we could see in Sega’s Tokyo arcade.
Gamers across the world are itching to experience what Sega has on offer, so let’s hope the delay doesn’t persist for too long. Japan’s Akihabara ward is a very popular and symbolic location for gaming in the country, attracting people from across the globe including local gamers who want to enjoy latest game releases or just have a go at new arcade machines.
