At the 2014 Game Developers Conference, I endured a two-hour wait to play CCP Games’ Eve: Valkyrie on the Oculus Rift for the first time. The experience was unlike anything I’d ever undergone before.

it will take time, that's really all there is to it. i for one don't want to be an early adopter this time. i went through the growing pains of motions controls with the wii, never saw the potential realized with kinect and the playstation move never got decent support. 3d gaming also looked like such a gimmick.

we are finally heading in the right direction and the technology is almost there...almost.
