To grab software developers attention good enough to become essential.
I've seen VR/3D glasses come and go since the Doom days and IMHO nothing beats a decent sound track with even a cheap audio headset as far as immersion goes.

What would be your dream peripherial - accesory to highly impro your gaming experience?

Mine would be a true 5.1 or 7.1 headset, so you could have the full audio experience (complete with body-vibrating bass) of the game or movie without disturbing others in the house.

But that's not possible. A good audio setup in a soundproof room is more realistic. Big Grin

There are multi-speaker headphones available but don't know how well they'd work for reproducing three-dimensional sound effects. I use the Kinect on my 360 simply to easy control of my video watching experience, but have a friend who uses it extensively for gaming. And you never know, with the debut of the Nintendo Switch we might see a resurgence in positional gaming.

I've never been much for building scripts for games, but would like to be able to use a gaming keypad more extensively without having to do all the scripting myself.

is that like what I have in mind? Full sensory immersive 3-D experience. I'm sure the porn industry will be the first to champion it.

High quality 3D virtual reality would make first person shooters cool as hell, I think.

And whoever said a good sound system makes a lot of improvement for a moderate cost is right. Directional sound and good thump for gunshots, explosions, and creepy noises from stage right makes a big difference.

There is already 3D VR porn. Get with the times.

I said "full sensory immersive 3-D experience."
Porn, food appetite, and war have always been the pushers of cutting edge technology.

And then some. Check out Black Mirror on Netflix. The "Playtest" episode. This tech is driven by a horror-reality gaming company.
