Two different tech for different markets as far as I am concerned. Both will look great strapped to my face. Obviously not at the same time.

This.

Both different pieces of tech. It's pretty clear HoloLens is not targeted at the gaming audience whereas Oculus Rift is.

Being that compatible with peripherals as well as being built as a standalone device with streaming capabilities, yes it is.

For gaming I'm definitely more interested in OR and Project Morpheus. VR just seems much better suited to gaming imo, its just so much more immersive.

HoloLens has the potential to be huge in Businesses and the workplace. It holds appeal outside of gaming where VR just isnt practical

Hololens could easily be used to compliment the traditional tv setup by extending elements of the game beyond the tv screen. If it's snowing in your game then you get snow appearing to fall and gather on the objects in your room for example or if it's thunder and lightning then you can look up and you have a cloud above you with rain drops and lightning appearing to surround you. If you go under water in a game you could have some water effect and sealift moving around you, possibilities are endless.

Controllers are fine & dandy

I agree that the Hololens is going to be marketed for more than just gaming. MS is trying to get a product out there that can be used for everyone for everything. Gaming will be apart of it but it won't be the main focus.

HoloLens could create the effect of objects climbing out of your TV which could be really cool when applied to gaming. In an FPS bullets could fly past you or in something like Dying light a zobie could lunge out of the screen.

Oculus Rift and Holo Lens offer different experiences. The rift able to enter into a virtual world similar to SAO and the holo lens is augmented reality bringing a virtual world into the real world. Both exciting pieces of tec for the world to cherish and enjoy.
