From the PlanetPlayStation.com feature editorial:
" You got fully immersed in a 3D world of polygons and virtual people while seamlessly interacting and looking around the environment. That technology was pretty cool for quite some time, but it eventually fizzled out when the face of modern gaming as we know it changed to something more casual. But there is a game company out there that’s looking to bring the VR touch back to gaming. Oculus is a team of technical folks who have put together a special virtual reality headset known as the Oculus Rift, one that they recently featured in a successful KickStarter campaign."
