Even though it's not for me and I'll never use it, I do get why did they did the whole thing with the Xbox controller. Not just because it's wireless, but also because it can be used without really having to look at it, which is something that today's VR definitely has to overcome.
That said, I have two DK2's, and the absolute majority of my time playing has been spent playing cockpit stuff. Mainly racing games, but with a touch of Elite Dangerous here and there. The best experiences that can be had right now, IMO, are Euro Truck Simulator 2 and Project Cars. You have a wheel, a stick shift, and pedals, and these are devices that most people can operate without having to look at them.
Honestly, I couldn't believe the video with the chick playing the Xbox One racing game while looking at a virtual screen. Really, what were they thinking? The way the room went so quiet after it played kinda says it all. I'll tell you what they should have done; they should have announced a partnership with SCS software and their upcoming American Truck Simulator, that's what. Compared to their lacklustre response, the crowd would've been positively buzzing.
Outside of being in a cockpit of sorts, I don't think FPS's are going to really work in VR in the immediate future because anything where your avatar is moving but you're not is going to make people sick. Like most who have enjoyed VR for what it delivers already, then, this controller will probably never get a look in.
