Uhh it obviously does seeing that VR technology and Kinect Motion sensor are two different things

True that. Put all these things together...VR + Move + Kinect, and then you can be in a virtual world and interact with it. The tech is getting there.

Without a doubt, VR is much more useful for gaming than Kinect. Imagine how immersive games like Skyrim or The Witness will be with that thing.

My god, it would be like you are actually there. Man, that would be so amazing, VR is the one thing i really want to take off this gen.

looks like something cyclops (x-men) would wear

Yes, but I want the laser shooting eye.

i really don't care about VR untill they can make the headset the size of regular glasses.

sorry i just can't imagine wearing that thing or somthing like occulus rift for long periods of time. i would try it out for like 30 minutes but thats probably it.

I would like to know how much room exactly would you need to use this. What if you live in a small apartment or small room?

This does look very interesting if done right and with th technology now it should be done right.

would be cool if they did something similar to sword air online, now that I would go crazy for

That's...actually that's pretty neat. All these VR and Motion Controls patents coming out are getting me pretty excited about the possibilities of VR coming to PS4.
