There is a big difference between looking at a small 2 dimensional picture (TV) versus being inside another fully 3 dimensional world. Even with the limited motion constraints due to cables, VR in its current form is more than compelling.

I long for the day once VR/AR equipment is miniaturized to the level of glasses. There would be no need to even own multiple monitors or TVs. We would just need a single pair of glasses that can perform all t... #2.1.4
Definitely. VR is in its learning phase. The only reason though that it has become viable is because we finally have overcome most of sickness issues. Now that has been resolved it's up to developers to figure out what makes a good VR game/experience.

I worry that the resolution might not be enough, but I am the kind of person who would replace his office with a virtual one. I look forward to the day were the resolution of screen can allow you to read text on a virtua... #1.2.5
Just addressed this above. Nausea comes a few things such as running 50 mph doing 360 no scope. Most people will get sick doing things like that. Shoot some people get sick just watching those kind of things on a screen. Another is doing stuff that doesn't match with what your body is doing. If you are upside down in the game but right side up in reality your brain will raise an objection. Most developers are aware of this and designing everything to avoid these situations.

You are bringing up a complaint that has two primary origins both of which deal with brain recognizing a disconnect of what you experience compared to all the sensory imputs available to your brain.

Early in VR, much of the motion sickness was due to the inadequacy of the hardware. Your brain does not like to see the world frozen in place while you move your head. Reducing the persistence of the screen and drastically increasing refresh rate has eliminated that issue. This... #1.2.3
You probably risk your eyesight more on TVs and computer screens. VR has your eyes focused at their natural state of infinity whereas traditional screens tax your eyes due to the relative closeness of the focal point of your eyes. #1.2.1
Former, not latter. #2.1.1
I know. Pangs of nostalgia are hitting me hard every time I look at this game. #3.1
Honestly I hope that they don't add Trophies/Achievements. The day those were made gaming a little more like a chore rather simple enjoyment for me. If they do add them I hope that they force theirs to be always achievable. I hate seeing games that are impossible complete simply because there are online achievements for games that no longer support online. #1.9
Really love this quote.

“On my business card, I am a corporate president. In my mind, I am a game developer. But in my heart, I am a gamer."

Satoru Iwata, you will be missed. #4
I'll take matte finish any day on my electronics. I always find the glossy finishes to look cheap and they show dust and damage quite quickly. #1.1.4
I saw the classic designs and was instantly sold. #1
It is interesting to notice that Square Enix is the cause for much of the controversy on both sides of the fence. Nice to see Square Enix starting to make a bit of a comeback after having a relatively quiet 7th generation. #1.5.1
Your date is a bit off. Sony announced The Last Guardian back in 2009 and had supposedly been working on it since 2007. #10.2.2
Wii U? #3.2
Check out A Hat in Time. It's another kickstarter platformer that was inspired by all the old Rare platformers. I am really looking forward to its release this year. #1.3
As others have said watches are much more discreet. Also with the growing size of cellphones, they are much easier to look at quickly.

Besides, I feel naked without my watch. #3.2.6
Wow! Played the online demo and was sold. They got my money. #1
Sounds like Shadow of the Colossus reborn in 2D. I will definitely buy this sometime in the near future. #3

SteamOS is just a customized version of Debian, so yes you can use it for daily things/work as long as you are fine with Linux. Despite trying to look like a console, it still is a fully capable PC. #1.3.4
You should really check out A Hat in Time. It's made by an indie studio, but it has been designed to feel like the old Rare platformers. It even has Grant Kirkhope making some of the music! #1.1.3
