Virtual Reality is too expensive for the average consumer right now. Many people can't justify putting down $99 for a sub-par VR experience or $500-$800 for the virtual reality experience. In the meantime we may see the rise of Virtual Reality arcade machines. Before computers and video game consoles became powerful and cheap enough to be accessible to the average consumers, the place to play video games was at the local arcade. With the invention of Virtual Reality we may start seeing the arcade come back. While $800 and a beefy enough computer may be too high of an investment for a casual consumer, for an arcade owner $800 is cheap compared to the price of some arcade machines out there.

But before we start seeing VR arcades pop up the public would have to be exposed to the world of VR. This is where movie theaters and malls come in. Many movie theaters and malls have a few arcade attractions at the door. Maybe a car racing game or a roller coaster simulator. Virtual reality would be perfect for these as many people are curious about VR but don't have the chance to try it because of the high price of entry to actual VR technology (google cardboard is nothing compared to the Vive). In fact IMAX has announced that it will provide VR stations in US movie theaters by the end of 2016. This article was inspired by this article by Bryan Bishop from "theverge.com".
