The Oculus looks great, especially in a developmental stage. I wonder how it is going to react with the next gen consoles when the come out. If it going to have the ability to work on next gen consoles.

Not unless they support it.

I can't see them not trying to make it compatible to the next gen consoles for the sheer fact that these things wont be popular with the general public if all they can use them on is old tech. New Tech on Old Tech isn't really appealing.

There are a number of factors, that could prevent it coming to next gen consoles.
1. Sony has their own headset although it is priced at $1000.
2. Need 60fps and vsynced and at a res of 1080p for the retail version and done in 3D.
3. Only a few games support it- Like 3D PS3 had 50 games that ran it, whereas PC has 400+

Really its going to be what they focus on, do they want substantially better graphics that make people go wow this looks next gen (this would especially help sell next gen consoles to the masses). Or better graphics but allow room for VR technology.

Console gamers wont pay over $99 for an accessory. They either 1.) have a small budget or 2.) use a console + do pc gaming (in which case they could just buy this $300-400 accessory for the pc).

Cannot wait to see this in person

I'm curious myself, I actually missed out on trying this at CES, but seeing the reaction from Hiphopgamer and AkilleezMight looks like this is shaping up quite nicely.

I would have thought that Gabe Newell and John Carmack's testimony would carry more weight with gamers...

Will be interesting to see this next-gen!
