That is true, but VR is not much better and will fail due to high cost of ownership
Bad comparison. For one, VR is way better than 3d tv as an experience and as a product. Two, 3D tv was also crazy expensive to get into. You needed a special TV, a special blu ray player, special glasses, and special movies.
That, and the support for 3d tv was just never there.
Bet with Adamblaziken:
I bet that on launch the Nintendo Switch will have no built in in-game voice chat. He bets that it will. The winner gets six months of avatar control over the other user.
