Dead Or Alive VR is a pretty shitty cash grab and a tasteless move showing a lack of understanding of what is troubling to many gamers.
Koei Tecmo Games recently showed off Dead or Alive Xtreme 3’s VR Paradise for PSVR. This may be a Japan exclusive given the how this kind of content is viewed in the American gaming public.

Those sentiments are actually shared by several game journalists.
Personally I think people that media as a whole from comic books to video games have used sex to sell content and this is a continuation. Is it right? Well not for the people who are bothered by it and they have the right to protest this.
I will play DOA VR probably not for that long cause it seems like a limited experience and I will play it to actually get an idea of how bad it really is. My hypothesis is that it is pretty bad.
The thing is sex sells and that bothers people. I get that and those people have the right to voice their opinion. Many times I think those opinions are overboard, but not this time.
My problem is actually not with that sex sells but that this game is just creepy and is basically fondling and unwanted sexual advances in a game version.
The flip of all of this is that we are still super ok with all the violence in gaming. Well this is life. I mean no one is flipping out about Slot Tub Party and that it is using sex to sell VR. That is because we kinda get that is what people do, but where is the line drawn.
