They should invest in AR not VR. Somehow VR always feel like an incomplete product no matter how you look at it, like almost there but not quite it yet. Figure it would take really powerful hardware to make VR decent and we just don't have that yet.

This is because of current design impediments and human anatomy.
A great deal of heat is emanated by humans through the head and face. Suppressing the natural ventilation that the skin allows with plastic materials creates heavy discomfort and usually limits usage to 20-30 minute sessions.
I have and used PSVR, Oculus Rift,Vive, Gear VR, 3rd party Google Cardboard derivations.
The closest thing that could be used is Google Glass as an augmented reality, but we all know how that went.
Cheap enough I supposed. Instead of advertising it only for gaming, should had advertise its other purposes like normal browsing and movies watching. Also as a virtual computer like virtual desktop experience where we can actually do some real work. Too much focus on gaming function only makes this thing more like an expensive toys rather than a functional everyday gadget.
