PlayStation 4 / Kinect 2 Another Step Towards Virtual Reality

Microsoft and Sony are making huge advancements from the experimental technology shown this generation to the next generation concepts that are now being revealed for the PlayStation 4 and soon the new Kinect 2. (PlayStation Eye 4, PS4, Tag Invalid, Tech, Xbox One)

I think the PS4 is a leap towards virtual reality but Kinect 2 is a joke.

And I think that both Kinect 2 and PS Eye are jokes compared to the immersion of Oculus Rift. Just watch the reactions from testers:

OMG! Shut up and take my money.

Why haven't I heard about this Oculus Rift thing before...why hasn't anyone submitted an article about this?

Wow I am amazed and cannot wait to buy one.

Surprising that MS, Nintedno or Sony have not purchased this company as yet - huge potential to be something special and also could be huge if paired up with Kinect.

Did the MS leaked document have something about MS releasing some glasses in 2014?

I wonder if they could add something like the light on the PS4 controller onto Oculus so it can also track your head moving forwards and back.

Kinect and PS Eye aren't jokes they just offer us different options and bring us variety.

That's funny seeing as they haven't shown Kinect 2. What's next weeks lotto numbers?

Thats just because they have filled your heads with so much poison you cant properly see, think or reason. Ps4 now has a kinect type device. Would Sony so blatantly copy something that is a joke or are you calling Sony stupid.

If the core markets keeps catering to people like you the video game industry will be dead after this gen. Hopefully Sony will give you antidote so you can stop being crazy.

Your gamertag says it all, you want virtual reality, go buy a dog and go outside sometimes instead of kissing S@NY @SS.

Are they serious? the only impressive tech by word only and details is Oculus Rift, now that's the biggest step toward good VR i've ever seen.

I'll pick one up for my PC whenever it comes out, Illumiroom and Kinect do not impress me though.

oculus rift is the future. hopefully ill be playing killzone on ps4 with a rift, 7.1 headset and ps move maybe with that gun attachment thing WOW

also maybe ms can use kinect to track your body in real time so you can see your body in VR and nintendo might hook the rift up to the wii fit board to simulate walking and running

Oculus Rift is the next step. Check it out on YouTube if you haven't seen it yet. Love how enthusiastic everyone is after they try it. It's the real deal.

i want to live long enough to see gaming become something like Sword Art Online... CAN NOT WAIT FOR THE THIS!!!

The Oculus rift is a different piece of the puzzle. I wouldnt want to go through process of immerging myself completely in a virtual world just to play it like I would on a TV. The full body tracking and motion control is an intricate part of the thing.

Dont worry this gen they have the tech and resources to perfect kinect style motion control gaming. Remember most of the games only had one iteration. they have a lot more to do.

We're still about 50 years away from what I define real virtual reality.
