Not all VR developers agree with this ethos of adapting to the whims of web-based communities to survive. Austin-based Ghost Machine VR is going in the opposite direction, selling their software at higher price points than they would for non-VR projects in order to compensate for higher development costs and a lower volume of sales.

Ghost Machine CEO Neal Nellans is skeptical of other developers’ emphasis on social features. Since recorded and streaming game footage is two-dimensional, he believes it isn’t able to capture the experience of being inside a virtual world.
