Valve Dev Joins Oculus, Hails VR "the Platform to End All Platforms"

Posted on Friday, March 28 @ 15:30:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn
Michael Abrash, formerly of id Software and Valve, has joined forces with Oculus and will serve as the company's chief scientist. 
 

Abrash is confident in the future of virtual reality, going so far as to call it "the platform to end all platforms." He explained on the official Oculus blog:
We're on the cusp of what I think is not The Next Big Platform, but rather simply The Final Platform – the platform to end all platforms – and the path here has been so improbable that I can only shake my head.

A lot of what it will take to make VR great is well understood at this point, so it's engineering, not research; hard engineering, to be sure, but clearly within reach. For example, there are half a dozen things that could be done to display panels that would make them better for VR, none of them pie in the sky.
What do you think? Is virtual reality truly going to change the way we play games for ever? Will it just be a short-lived fad that dies out in a few years' time?
