    I have played quite a few 'Z' 's in this tech, well, more than normal because I do not normally play them.

    I felt there are some names of sectors of this field that will have overwhelming need eventually.

    That could be one of them. Meets a brand-able need for some. Good grab late in the game.
    A example of some of mine... vrchatz holodeckz vrshortz (meaning short film)

    Sensational VR Movie BattleScar Comes To SteamVR In 2020

    I see no reason that Steam would not be a hub for VR film as well.

    Ya know, I was scouring the news because it is about time for announcements leading into the xmas season. And before covid knocked on our door, I was really expecting a good year for xmas sales and a full breakout for VR... but who knows now.

    But I did just find this breaking...
    PS5 secret weapon? New Sony VR headset confirmed
    https://www.tomsguide.com/news/psvr-2-for-ps5-sony-is-working-on-a-new-vr-headset

    I'm going to bet that this is a next year thing but we 'could' see pre-orders at xmas if they are close enough.
    They will want to thwart off sales to others like Oculus.

    It's all good for names !
    I want to see serious competition to help names. But Sony, like Apple, is a closed ecosystem.

    Looks like Oculus INK'd a deal with the NBA as we were talking about a few weeks ago.

    https://www.sportsbusinessdaily.com.../18/Marketing-and-Sponsorship/Oculus-NBA.aspx

    But I do wonder just how much backlash is coming over the forced Facebook log-in.
    And I thought I was alone in staying away from the products just because of that kind of likely behavior.
    But the current anger is from those that did buy-in.

    One more dynamic in a mess of fluid and marbles on the floor -LOL- navigate that with your HMD on.

    Instead of using Oculus for FB, Zuck should start using fb for Oculus 😶😶.. meaning the vast marketing network of fb + instagram

    When the Rift CV1 was released, the drivers were tied to facebook servers live in the system tray as it was my first indication Oculus was not going to be Independent.
    So I'm not sure why the sudden interest is now. Perhaps because they have to physically log-in?

    Anyway, it will continue to be a issue for them as a matter of trust that will follow facebook, where you do not know what type of data is being collected and who may have access to it (intentionally or non-intentionally) until it has been collected, shared, and some form of future damage is possible.

    Let's face it... every company will pay through the nose to make you a predictable commodity.
    So even if a company has completely good intentions for collecting data, they become a hackers target and you may never know when that has been stolen, sold, shared and/or used against you in a discriminating nature.

    You make it easy on them or you protect 'your future unknown interest' as best you can.
    Facebook will never outgrow the bad reputation and suspicion they have earned. It must be factored in.

    ...LOL... Picked this drop up some years ago...

    more on that...
    https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2020...-oculus-vr-is-bad-for-users-devs-competition/

    I don't really have any issue with it as much as I dislike FB but,
    Those future headset should 'state clearly on the box' "FB account required to operate".

    Anyway, I can't see any plus's for FB on this, only downside of user rejection from those early Oculus buyers.
    Anything that merges these industries together is bad for names.

    Well, I did want to get everyone thinking about it anyway.
    These virtual rooms are going to be a big thing perhaps by 3rd gen of HMD's.

    Believe it or not we suffer from bandwidth issues here in the states. While you might not think so, you need to look at it the right way.
    More folks than ever only have internet access via cellphone.
    So alot of this is going to change with 5g in about 2 years.
    Who knows what wired net will do in price point when that is widespread.

    We do also suffer from enough cpu and gpu power and will also change very much in that same time frame.
    So the skinny is that while we see many laying the ground floor for this now, it will develop together.
    Some expecting the holodeck out of the gate will be disappointed.

    But I am a firm believer in social VR as the primary social medium in 5 years.
    Even if everyone is not using it, they will want to. The cool factor.
    I can't see Apple missing out in that either. At least in a collaborative sense as I don't think they want to compete with Facebook at their level anyway. Something different.

    But, as we figure out what they might call it, you know many will be buying like names and as long as I have been doing this, I have not seen even 1/2% of all those names bought make anything.
    Just a few speculative buys. I guess I mention that for some of the newer domainers.

    Maybe the train hasn’t come yet?
    The thing is most of the VR businesses are of big companies like FB, Apple, HP, etc. it has very tiny chances to sell vr related domain names to them.

    if you want to pick up a name for your vr business would you choose the domain name like vr+yourbusiness( eg. vrshooping.com) or a brandable one like vr+fruits or animal name( eg. VRGecko.com)?

    No, the train has not yet arrived. but I can hear the whistle.

    How you pick a name has a lot of factors. I would say that here you have to put your marketing hat on.
    Some want the search value of a name and generics would apply. CheapVR, VRCheap
    Some want to say what they do. VRProgramming, VirtualCode
    Some want to portray or project a image, true or not. OutstandingVR, OutstandingExperience, BestVR
    Despite the obvious exact name match... think OculusVR.(also look at oculus definition)

    It normally is some combination of the above. But don't think that a large co with money to pay marketing folks don't look at all the advantages and disadvantages of everything. But of coarse, one person must make a final decision and could disregard much of it for a heartfelt idea, or where they are headed in the future without a name change and many in the company may not be aware of that future move(s).

    When it comes to domains, branding requires a unique trademarkable name. That is why you may see a lot of spelling twists on what otherwise is a generic un-trademarkable term/name. Mainly when a category is well populated, but not always.
    Think VRChatz... you could protect that and it says what you do in a understandable way.
    Message conveyed and protectable. You could not protect VRChats very easily, not that it could not be in some fashion.
    Google once wanted to TM 'GLASS' by itself. They would not allow it. But you could protect 'Google Glass' with no protection for 'Glass' without the term 'Google'.

    The more you study marketing and Trademark, the better you can pick'm.
    I may be a bit lucky to have sat in on some older product dev to the end and listened to some of the decision making all the way through, but that can not make you right about what you think others might do.
    You just have 'some idea' of how it goes down. Things like what your competitors are doing or might do are in play. Not just trying to win but beat your competitor as well. Steal as much market share as you can.

    It might also be important to note that once you 'successfully' create a brand, it becomes a tangible asset. You can even borrow against it once it has a formidable value established.
    That too can have a effect projecting the best name for them.

    No secret formula. It's a guessing game. but try to increase your odds.

    Thanks, Great informative post!

    Don’t forget, Booking.com recently secured a Trademark which has huge implications for generic exact match domains.

    Thx, very informative, I didn’t expect you will answer my question that long, thx again, I was thinking how companies picking a vr domain in real life and trying to filter out some unlikely to sell.
    I did reg VRGecko.com lol, there is a blockchain website called Coingecko.
    I can’t figure it is a good or bad one, so numb.

    The pandemic has probably killed VR arcades for good
    https://techcrunch.com/2020/08/25/the-pandemic-has-probably-killed-vr-arcades-for-good/

    I can fully understand they can not survive this virus environment.
    But good ideas always come back and it will.
    Face it... it's fun ! It's the modern day version of paintball wars. Only you don't have to imagine as much.
    So I would advise those holding those names to hold'm or sell'm to me ...LOL...
    Just kidding, but I believe in them.

    Well if covid, fires, hurricane's or other political situations have not grabbed your attention as we come up on Labor Day here in the US, take some time to study past sales. Not just pricing, but who bought them for that amount and why. Ask yourself why not some other name. Don't waste your 'covid time'....LOL.
    We might just have more of it this winter.
    I might point out the volume of reported sales over 2k looks good this week. Trend ?
