Isn't it too early to push in mainstream channels like that? They won't have a consumer product for a long while, right?
I am all about the OR but I wonder how effective showing it on TV will really be. This seems to be something that one would have to experience to be wow'd by. Just seeing Fallon on TV going "oooh so cool" won't garner much attention.
I seriously hope Fallon used phrases such as "this is something every gamer needs to have" or something along those lines to promote it. I can only wish well to Oculus, and I hope it does well enough for the industry to adapt to it.
OR is never going to be bigger than it is right now, guys... They hype is certainly due, its a great product, super cool tech and (I assume) going to sell just fine to gamers like us, but until VR is as simple as sunglasses it's a niche at best. Or, at worst, a flop if it doesn't get any real game support.
Honestly, I think something else will come along and blow it out of the water. Now that OR proved that the tech is already here, someone with a much bigger R&D budget will take it to the next level.
The fact that some homebrew hacker made the product that blew everyone away is a testament to just how little effort everyone else was giving this. VR had become a joke. Once people start to take it seriously, small companies like Oculus probably won't be able to stay relevant for long.
