I love a good civilised debate (but only if we can learn something).

I think it's kind of underwhelming if you compare it to something like the Oculus Rift.

We don't just like games, we like art.

That's very cool stuff. I think this would be even better for games than what MS has. However, this requires more space.



Really cool, I want one *_*

Looks very cool! But didn't the illumiroom use the same examples, like that train?

this is actually the only thing im kinda look forward to from ms tbh. if you dont think this tech is cool then i dont know what to say. the lighting in that car game, the pulsating walls, the accumulating snow,and more... is it occulus rift no its not but unique and immersive in its own way.

heres what kinda puzzles me about illumiroom. it utilize both a kinect and a projector. so how would the set up work

would you have to map the room with kinect and store it. then align it with a projector. or would it be a combo unit taking up the kinect in port. obviously this would be the case since you couldnt play kinect games in front of the projector. it would instantly take e3 no matter what sony show imh. and im waiting to see what naughty does

i really like those techniques for another reason as oculus rift. oculus rift is awesome but what i like about illuminiroom or this now is that the projection doesn't look 100% like the screen. that they can use that comic style or black and white or only pull some effects out. that you could play a batman game where you would see the normal game on screen and around the screen you would see a green blinking object telling you that there is something or stuff like that. i would love to get games like that using it for extra content not on the screen.



If you've played Virtual Boy you know Oculus Rift will get you tired after an hour of continuous gameplay. I didn't see anything extraordinaire on Oculus Rift as I'm used to video glasses. I don't know whats wrong with people hyping stuff up before they test it, haven't you learned from AC:Colonial Marines or Duke Nukem?

 

don't want it, utterly pointless.

This is happening right next to the Sony Devstation presentation. Funny coincidence.
