I could honestly seeing this making or breaking Virtual Reality, since a company as large as IBM is willing to hop on a project and try to make something work. If this does turn out to be a success and a good game, it'll sell incredibly well with the SAO fanbase being as big as it is and other companies will want to look into VR technology to keep up or innovate (making a niche in the market so they can reap a bigger profit).
True VR is not coming anytime soon but it gotta start somewhere :D
We wont live to see it :( For full immersion we must know ins and outs of our brains which we do not know, it is quite fascinating that we know so little about our most important organ
Seems pretty sweet. I actually believe there are discoveries that we obviously don't know about yet ( the public ). VR is nearing a good time and it's rapidly being improved. I DO think we will see VR gaming in our lifespan.
