Never used the Oculus Rift but i will say this. If this is less precise or more of a hassle than playing games with regular controller and regular tv then i am not interested.

That being said i have said it before that i would rather see virtual reality gaming in this gen than some more lame as motion tech that wii started 7 yrs ago. I was however hoping for real virtual gaming like in the movies and i seriously doubt this peripheral will be able to do that or any peripheral for that matter at least not for a couple yrs.

I really don't want to have to wear this big ass device on my head.

An HMD and a mo-cap camera could be what is needed to really put you in the game.

On a side note, I hope you can have multiple HMD's work with the system. Having to share one is a bit of an inconvenience. Nothing deal breaking but you just got to sit there and wait your turn.

i did at E3 its some crazy tech and this will put you in the game, i can't wait to get my hands on these for pS4

Its all about immersion. The mini screens which simulate watching a movie in a giant theater combine with the move would be great.

I was actually going to pick the sony 3d personal viewer a year ago, but held off due to price tag.

I got to try it at a Sony store in Las Vegas and it was cool, but I can see it becoming heavy after a while. I think it was also only 720p. I looked other personal viewers and the one below 500 USD don't really show HD and some even have the screendoor effect most common with LCD screens.

All I can say is I'm looking forward to when virtual gaming is perfected and I can look back and say to my kids, ''when I was your age we had to play games on a TV''

Wait till the Japanese get their hands on it.
Oh wait!

Better than Oculus Rift? Hmm. Let me play this thing with PS Move and Killzone, and I'm sold

That would make my ps sharp shooter for the move that much better. I dream of the day.

Sony are aiming for a better specced system than OR apparently. So it should be a bit of a beast when it comes out. Price is gonna be a bitch though I bet.

ForgottenProphecy1057d ago

I'll pay $200 for a device like this no questions asked. $300 I'll probably strongly consider buying it, maybe after trading some games at Gamestop, and anything over $300 I'll wait for a pricedrop. I'm sure many gamers have a similar take on this.

If they can get the price right it could be huge.

I expect it to launch along side the first version of GT for the PS4. These would be ideal for driving games.
