The personal 3D viewer makes him look a bit like Robocop. Can't say I'd want to wear one of these outside the house.

Japan failed at traditional console this generation because of outdated practices, management, mentality that promotes brute force over efficiency.

As for the headset, tried it for 10 minutes, and it left a mark on the forehead. With hikikomori on the rise, you may get a permanent mark if you use it for a long period of time.

@JonathanJo if you are wearing it outside the house , you are doing it wrong! But it would be cool to hack it , to use it as heads up display, to add terminator- or robocop vision

with big screens running trailers of the latest versions of hit games like "Biohazard" from Capcom and "Final Fantasy" from Square Enix.

Not to mention Konami with the same old Metal Gear Solid and Winning Eleven. There's a lack of innovation in console games, almost of the best sellers are sequels = boring. I guess its too risky to be innovative in some ways as most games are so expensive to produce they're going for sure-fire hits. I mean look at FIFA and Winning Eleven. In the old days something totally fresh could come along and be competitive like Sensible Soccer, but that doesn't happen anymore.

You can wear it on halloween and say you're one of the X-men.

Well said Dave. There's no innovation, only remake upon remake. Its like the Hollywood of games. Final Fantasy 14, Final fantasy 43 im not even keeping track anymore. Resident evil 5? 6? Nintendo has their Mario games. All cr*p.

If I go to Yodobashi to search for interesting games, there is nothing, absolutely nothing.

Also with the recent hack problems Sony had I doubt they will have money to release a PS4 anytime soon.
