Apple Vision Pro Reactions For The $3,500 Headset Are All Over The Place
The internet reacts to the iPhone company's newest product announcement.
Apple has revealed its next product, the Apple Vision Pro, and its announcement certainly garnered quite a response online. The headset, which starts at $3,500, launches in early 2024, promising to revolutionize the way people experience the world around them.
But the lofty price point and other elements of Apple's announcement of the device led to some hilarious reactions and memes, as well as some thoughtful analysis of Apple's intentions. As usual, the internet did not disappoint. Here's a roundup of some of the best reactions to the Apple Vision Pro that we've seen from across the internet.
The Apple Vision Pro differentiates itself from Meta Quest 3 and PlayStation VR 2 by allowing users to see the real world and virtual apps and experiences at the same time. In terms of gaming support, the Apple Vision Pro will support Apple Arcade so users can play Apple Arcade titles on a simulated screen. There will be entertainment and workplace productivity apps available, too, including Disney+ and Microsoft Word, among others.
You can see some of the internet's reactions to the Apple Vision Pro below. Keep checking back with GameSpot for more on the headset in the time ahead.
Sorry to upset everyone with an incredibly logical POV, but this is a $3500 device for developers to buy and make shit with, so there is a fully functional Vision App Store when they launch the wireless, mass market Vision Air in ~5 years. It's not for us. #AppleVisionPro #WWDC— Ashley Esqueda, no-check heathen 🧠 (@AshleyEsqueda) June 5, 2023
Sorry Apple this is the only augmented reality device I need pic.twitter.com/xWIsQwXe2v— Jason Schreier (@jasonschreier) June 5, 2023
Kind of amazed at how little gaming was a part of that Vision Pro announcement, considering how much of a focus it has been for VR so far...— Kyle Orland (@KyleOrl) June 5, 2023
Also, Apple doesn’t usually release things that aren’t squarely aimed at the mainstream, but this absolutely feels like Apple charging for a developer kit and calling it a product.— Patrick Klepek 🎃 (@patrickklepek) June 5, 2023
Very happy with all that has been announced. Tackling AR is hardmode, if they nail that fully immerse will also be great! So excited the input is eyes and hands! Important step into the future!! https://t.co/1hRkMI4NL8— Devin Reimer (@DevinReimer) June 5, 2023
i am sorry but strapping a 3500 pair of VR goggles to your face in public is like taping a "Please Rob Me" sign to your chest— rat king 🐀 (@MikeIsaac) June 5, 2023
AR is not a brush that can be just painted on everything and instantly make it better -- though people will try! -- but there are some amazing use cases where it's going to be a quantum leap forward. Interactive instructions while building a PC or working on a car engine. Damn.— Dan Amrich (@DanAmrich) June 5, 2023
Yeah, I mean, much of this (especially the office demos with multiple displays) looks remarkably like a Meta show video, but with Apple's taste, a device with 6x the cost, a further multiple of cost performance, and diff focuses on purely virtual versus mixed experiences— Matthew Ball (@ballmatthew) June 5, 2023
