This strikes me as just another toy that will be gathering dust on people's shelves before too long.

I doubt we'll be playing on a flat screen for eternity, so something is going to give, full immersion seems like a logical next step. There is what 2 games a year you like... because really you're bored of the same ole, one would think you'd be the person to embrace new horizons. You ole poop.

As for those mentioning resolution... again another reason why the next gen consoles needed to be able to pull down 1080P with high frames. The PC is going to get this in the next year and then for the next 7 have this emerging technology up/on the next gens. And again what are these expert execs being paid and what are they really even coming up with? Stuff amateurs think of.

A headset you strap on and isolate yourself from the outside world doesn't seem like a logical next step to me, just like Google Glass doesn't seem like a logical next step.

If we don't move to some form of implant we're moving to holograms. Something like this is just an off-shoot, something fun for a small group of people but nothing the masses will gravitate towards. Even its usage is limited - games where you have a first person view. It makes no sense for most strategy, sports, board, or third person games, and it makes even less for any other computer use.
