Enter The Matrix With The Oculus Rift

I’ve been gaming since 1977 and I truly never thought I’d see the day when I felt like I was in the game. I’ve tried out a couple of VR helmets in the past and they were nothing but a tiny screen in front of my face. The Virtual Boy was playable for about 5 minutes before I had to take it off due to eye strain. Was I ever going to be completely immersed in a video game ala Holodeck or The Matrix? I didn’t think so, at least not until PAX Prime 2012 at the Oculus meeting room on level 2A. (Industry, Next-Gen, Oculus Rift)

Neo Virtual boy lol

Seriously though this is kind of cool. We'll see what devs do with this tech.

Beh. Cheap gimmick.

OR sounds awesome, gaming for me is largely about immersion, the more immersed I can get into a game world the better.

This gimmicky stuff always was around but people have common sense that is a waste of money.
