Don't be a moron. That sort of thing has been out for over a decade. I tried some in a shop in the Bay Area in 1999. Carmack's ones are proper VR linked to the 3D mapping of the game so that where ever you turn your head, that's where you are looking in the 3D environment. Works 360 degrees

it's hardly VR, it's just 3D goggles with motion sensing.

Whatever. Wait til you're shin deep in alien blood, running down dark corridors, trying to shoot your way to safety in the half light, surround sound making you cry for mummy

They are releasing Doom 3D all spruced up for the new consoles. New paint, and the flashlight is built into your armour
