Stepping Into The Game: The Oculus Rift

WWC: "We are living in the future, ladies and gentlemen. It’s getting harder and harder to look at futuristic movies and say “Ah, that will never happen.” Think about it, our phones are ridiculously more powerful than computers were years ago, and also ridiculously smaller. Touch screens and 3D TVs have taken over, and as an industry which revolves around technology, gaming has felt the impact. In comes the Oculus Rift, the newest Virtual Reality headset.

As long as I can still uses the gamepad to look and have the ability to look over my shoulder like arma 2 with trackir this will be awesome. I find there a bunch of times that I just miss a enemy in cod/halo because I don't look a certain way by just a bit and either run by them or get blown to bits.

Racing games will be awesome and so will any flight game. It may take a few releases until they reach a resolution that beats using a tv, and i'll have to get over the fact my girlfriend will think im a complete nerd using it, but I can see this being a asset in the future of game emersion.
