VR will be a coexisting market with video games. It's not going to replace the way games are traditionally played.

The correct answer is "It's a form of gaming." It lack many things people want from gaming as a whole but it's great for other things. It's an option.

... but then sadly mobile phone gaming is technically also an option.



Hmm, pie.

Not for another dozen years at least.



Yes, it's the future - the present however, is merely a step in the direction of that future.

The day we have affordable 4K resolution, light, comfortable, wireless VR headsets, with consoles powerful enough to run it all at 120hz, is the day VR will truly be the bar from which all future advancement is based on.

Static display's days are numbered.

I'm talking about gaming, do you think that vr has a future in gaming? Cause VR will be a success  with the right applications in the future (netflix, facebook, live concerts, etc) that's for sure. The only way I see it happening is if there's a VR console right out of the box.

Given enough time. Of course, absolutely. Even for third person games and genres you may not think are VR friendly. It might not grab gaming to hard before the end of this decade but AR and VR will have a huge success in gaming in the 2020's and beyond.

I would be honest fallout 4 VR edition could be a seller for me cause that my type of genre, so maybe the content will change my mindset.

No sarcasm, just how it is. as VR/AR headsets improve and drop in price, the point of having a monitor/tv gradually becomes less and less important.

I'm fairly certain within our lifetime, we will move on from monitors/tv's to personal, high definition displays, and the TV/monitor as we currently know it will still be around but used much less.

There was a time, not all that long ago, back when the world was shifting from CRT to LCD that people proclaimed LCD too expensive to succeed and that it would never become as popular as the standard CRT - these days barely anyone has a CRT, that same shift in technologies can and will happen again.

For single personal use, I can phantom that.  But television screens are still the center of visual entertainment for families and groups to enjoy together.  Yes, technology will improve, and costs will go down.  And even with the change of tech in television as you stated earlier, the principle I mention still applies. 



It won't replace the traditional gaming but it's gonna big in long term.



PS4 - over 100 millions let's say 120m
Xbox One - 70m
Wii U - 25m

Vita - 15m if it will not get Final Fantasy Kingdoms Heart and Monster Hunter 20m otherwise
3DS - 80m
