Inspired by the PS9 thread, what's the next step in gaming? Games are more immersive and realistic than ever. The Wii seems to be an attempt at taking immersion one step further, utilizing (hopefully) intuitive, realistic controls. But not everyone seems to want this.
Most of the VR gimmicks in the 90s fizzled horribly, but you could argue that was due to poor execution. Arcades, which used to get by offering more immersive games than what was available at home, are doing worse than ever.
It's made me wonder: do gamers really want to stand up and interact with virtual environements through body movements, or just with our thumbs? The question is where do you want to see gaming go?
