I have an earlier generation of one of these VR headsets; I really don't use it all that much. In my experience, the image floating in front of your eyes doesn't fill your peripheral vision so it actually doesn't seem all that large. Also, when using these types of headsets with videogame consoles there is no motion tracking so no matter how you move your head, you always get the same screen in front of you - that pretty much kills the immersion as well. The 3D effect usually has some gotchas: with PC's it's easier to implement because you can just intall a driver to manipulate the images but with consoles, the games usually have to be specifically written to support it (not sure if this applies to this version but that's been my experience in the past). On all the VR headsets I've tried, the color has been very washed out. Again, this one may be better but this is a definite try before you buy device; making a blind purchase might be a little risky.
