Remember that video game controller that allows a dude to put his penis inside it and have VR sex with a sexy sprite of his choosing? Yeah, how could we forget that majesty.
Well bad news for any potential customers out there, because apparently Eos, the company behind the VirtuaDolls controller, have pulled the pioneering device from the market after being completely overwhelmed with demand. Yes, that does indeed mean lots of men want to own this device.
A Little Premature
Taking to Twitter to relay the bad news, Eos were upbeat about the current state of their VR fleshlight:
And they're right to be I guess, their Indiegogo campaign raised over $7,000 out of their goal of $20,000 within 4 days of it going live. But in order to shift a larger load of the sex box, they're taking a step back to rethink strategies.
Penetrating The Market
When, or if, the fully customizable VirtuaDolls controller does eventually go on sale, it comes complete with Girls of Arcadia, a game in which you must save a damsel in distress from the clutches of a fell beast. And then sleep with her afterwards, obviously.
Or, alternatively, you can skip all that and go to "simulation mode" where you enter a digital brothel and build the perfect sex partner from a bunch of visual perks and size adjusters. Way quicker, right?
But, now that this thing exists, I can't help but think... if VirtuaDolls and the wave of VR sex takes off, what would happen if AAA video game developers got on board? Or if it goes bananas on social media?
Let's Play's would certainly be a lot more interesting when you have a Twitch user screaming "LIFT HER LEG HIGHER OVER YOUR SHOULDER!" on a live stream.
Co-op games would build bonds like no other.
Watercooler discussion would surely be more fruitful.
"Dude, last night I finally beat the Shadow of Yharnam in 'Bloodborne'!" "Yeah well, I f*cked Zelda. Trump that."
Walkthroughs would be hilarious.
"First you have to take Emily out on a date..."
All in all, I hope someone tries to beat Dark Souls 3 with a VirtuaDoll controller. That'll make for some news, I tell you!
