Grand Theft Auto 5 in theaters?

The idea may seem a bit far from reality at the moment, but a video recently surfaced on Twitter that showed GTA 5 running in a virtual theater. Ben, a Rockstar Games enthusiast who regularly posts such videos on his Twitter handle, posted this video.

According to him, he downloaded an application from the Quest AppStore, then connected his computer to a virtual cinema.

In this 2-minute clip, he can be seen playing Grand Theft Auto 5, in his Oculus Quest 2 from Meta. After the match, Ben said the experience made him giddy. This is not surprising because even if someone else had experienced this for the first time, they would also have felt dizzy.

It was unclear which app he was playing the game on. It looked a lot like the Bigscreen Beta app, which is available as an add-on in the Meta store. However, some fans remembered that a Tumblr user who previously worked in a movie theater managed to play GTA 5 on the big screen.

An Oculus to another reality!

Virtual reality took a huge leap forward when, in May 2019, Meta released its first virtual reality headset, Oculus Quest. The entire gaming and streaming industry changed overnight after the initial release. As people don’t need to go to a real social gathering, it also helps in surviving a pandemic. It was a leap of faith for many and people accepted it, eventually socializing with the world from the comfort of their homes.
