Is everyone aware that there exists no mobile VR headset other than the GearVR? Which is pretty much just a 200 dollar gimmick for your 700 dollar phone.

The Oculus Rift will require a PC and be wired.

The HTC Vive and other future SteamVR headsets will require a PC and be wired.

Sony's Morpheus will require a Playstation 4.

The "stupid VR face" challenge is solved the same way the "stupid pajamas" or "stupid work clothes" challenge is solved; you won't be wearing one outside of your living room or work space.

Whoa, dude -- have you tried it? It's actually impressive. Don't believe me, ask my friend Blair or for that matter VR Boy in the subway.


EA CEO Riccitiello said: "who doesn't look an idiot dancing in the disco with the sound off?"

I have a pre-scripted rebuttal for this, I always say "That's becuase you're looking at it from the wrong side."

No one has ever managed to quip me back.
