Well,...a lot o people seem to think sales numbers dictates the products quality...the higher the sales number the better the product
Nothing is further from the truth, as you see here, Candy Crush. Probably played more than any console game has by a more varied install base.
Is it better than console exclusives?

its cannon fodder for a quick fix,..that's all.

Couldn't agree more.

Lamborghini does not sell millions of Huracan's each year. Does that mean Huracan's are crappy cars?

I hope people realize that HoloLens won't be cheap.

Unlike VR devices, HoloLens is a full computer. So, if people think HoloLens will ship at less than $500 US they are probably way wrong. The price of HoloLens is more likely to start close to $1,000 if not higher.

That said, I am sure I will be picking one up to play with and use at home.

Nah I'm expecting and sortta hoping that it's not cheap (so that it's actually a quality device, not just made cheap to reach the average gamer target audience). I expect it to cost about the same as a SurfacePro4...and I'll grab one. I'm sure the first one will have a somewhat limited FOV, but I'm sure that will be fixed for Gen 2. The major thing I think HoloLens has going for it...as far as pricing is concerned, is that it's not reliant on JUST console gamers to support it...it's a stand alone computer with endless possibilities...so they can make the first gen more expensive since they have a wider audience to support it. In the future I can see Xbox doing some VERY impressive stuff with this.

This is dumb and wish people would realise it will never be released to the public. VR done wrong. I'd rather play on a TV if its just a virual screen in front of me.

You sir are correct on YOUR opinion...you would rather play on a tv than a virtual screen,..yet isn't this just one of the many options hololense can be used?
As for stating its dumb and you wish people would realise it won't be released to the public...you are so wrong to think you know first hand what is going to happen with hololense.
It's AR not VR as you stated. Two completely different entities.
So I guess the dumb thing is to think that VR is ar and ar is VR is it not?
