    I saw this a while back, and all this talk about the future of gaming sent me looking for it again. Personally, I cant wait for VR and I will probably spring for this when it comes out. How about you guys? What do you think about virtual reality or augmented reality?

    Always seemed cheesy and fake to me. I find I like looking at a normal screen far better. I just don't see any one embracing that kind of stuff.

    Virtual Reality seems like one of those things that graphics whores go for. there was a discussion a while back with some mates who couldn't were really looking into Virtual reality headsets.
    my experience with a headset wasn't good. A mate at a computer shop had another mate who was moving out to American, and he basically just gave away most of his gadgetry. i popped into the shop one day and they let me have a go. basically its like looking at a big screen, like being in a cinema and you're the only one there.

    it wasn't good. much prefer TV's.

    its kinda sci-fi and won't be around for years. but something like a watered down Matrix would be a good thing, some kind of helmet that changes what you see. but it could be very dangerous. but so long off.
