I don't agree that head mounted full VR is going to catch on. As cool as it is in theory, it's also an isolation booth.

As gamers get older, I think they're also getting less interested in being wholly immersed. At some point having at least a minor situational awareness of the house around you begins to be more important than the total immersion VR could offer.

And I just don't see people wanting to sit there with anything on their heads. It's among the many reasons 3D hasn't caught on at home.

Full on VR may not catch on like a wild fire but I would bet even money that when someone does a good AR implementation it will take off and many of the same issues that are plaguing VR implementations right now are also things that need to be solved for AR to work well. So anything that pushes on that boundary is a good thing, IMO.
