yeah i bet is one of those accessories that you are curious at first and later you will throw it on a shelve to collect dust just like old Nintendo peripherals. Do people even realize how stupid they look with that thing on their face? ahahahahhhhhhh

I dont think VR is the future, i think it will be important and a big piece of the pie, but with new AR technology out. I think people are more comfortable with it.

Personally I'm not that interested, and I tried out the prototype a few months back.

However I do see thee Oculus Rift as the first step in the long development to actually make VR better.It wont be accepted by everyone at first, and it will take at least 5-10 years to be fully accepted by gamers.

It may even become another gimmick aslo by then so who knows.
