Do you want Sony to show off something like the illumiroom on the 20th?

In case you haven't heard or seen yet, the illumiroom is a new feature of the Xbox 720.

That article includes a video demo of the illumiroom. To me, it seems amazing. One quality I adore the most is immersion. This illumiroom technology does exactly that. It increases immersion to almost the point of virtual reality. Imagine playing your favorite RPG and have your surroundings be all around you. Playing Mass Effect? Imagine the whole room really looking like outer space. Ni No Kuni? How great would if be to really be in that world surrounded by Studio Ghiblis world? Skyrim? Walking with your bow drawn with beautiful trees and sky all around you. Dead Space? Seeing some crazy **** start crawling on your actual ceiling trying to kill you!?

I don't know. Maybe I'm the minority on this but I hope Sony announces something like this as well. What do you think?

I would expect Sony to show off some kind of virtual holodeck or something close to it. It would most likely be more advance then what MS wants to do.

Young heroes between the ages of 12-17 make RPG and other video games better then older heroes 18-21 and over.

Not really an X-box fan but damn I loved the illumiroom and would love for the ps4 to get something like that. Not sure how well it would actually work in real life compared to the video but still pretty cool.

It looks like yet another stupid gimmick like 3D to me.

If you read the article it goes on to state that Microsoft said the commercial was shot live and had no special effects added.

Never read the article but that's awesome. Really hoping Sony gives us something similar.

This is a distracting light show.

If you want immersion, look into the Oculus Rift.

Distracting light show? That was a faced pace shooter for the most part. But, didn't you see how the whole room looked when he was on the street? The buildings all along the walls in the background? Think of his beautiful it would be on whatever your favorite game is. Didn't you see how the snow was falling? That looks stunning to me.
