    Yep, you read that right, PS4. Some interesting, um, things, circulating.

    Sony, as some people know, has patented video brain-feed techonolgy. "Sony has patened the process of beaming information directly into the brain, without surgery. This technology would make possible games in which you can see, touch and feel the environment. There's only one catch, they haven't actually developed the technology yet..." Source

    Also, nVidia and Sony appear to be working on a PS4 chip. So, any thoughts? Brain-feed gaming? Sign me up. Speculation, of course.

    This is taking a turn for the worse,if I wanted a VR thingy I would have bought it.But when I buy a console all I want to do is just press some buttons and have fun, I'm not really looking for total immersion. That's for those everquest freaks that are like 30 years old and live in their parents basement. *shudder*

    I disagree, I think it would allow gaming to be what it meant to be, a source of entertainment, where, for a while, you can forget about the stress of everyday life and hang out with friends. Granted, the technology has not been developed yet.

    A little early to be thinking about systems that won't be out for another 5 or 6 years. :rolleyes:

    The brain-feed Matrix VR thing is a joke right? It would be cool if they could make a fully immersible VR system, although it would be so wicked expensive that most people couldn't afford it.

    Don't forget about the XBOX 720 and the Nintendo SuperEntertainmentWiiWiiRevolutionCube. ;)

    I won't touch such a system with a 10 foot pole. You'll need a very strong mind and personality to be able to distinct between the two in the end.
