Sony has an HMZ-T2 prototype that they're calling the "Prototype-SR". They mounted a gyro and a camera onto the HMZ-T2 for head tracking and video pass-through for augmented reality. They're going to be demoing the prototype to a limited audience at the Tokyo Game Show at the end of September. Although I would love if Sony were working on an interactive HMD for gaming, it doesn't seem like this is the one!

Only ONE camera so it doesn't give you stereoscopy?! DOH!

In A/V reproduction accuracy, there IS no concept of "accounting for personal taste/preference". As art consumers we don't "pick" the level of bass, nor the tint/brightness of a scene's sky, any more than we pick the ending of a novel or Mona Lisa's type of smile. "High fidelity" means "high truthfulness", faithful to the original artist's intent: an unmodified, neutral, accurate copy of the original master, ideally being exact and with no discernable alterations, aka "transparency".
