Nik Pregelj's insight:
Oculus Rift, a brand new virtual reality headset. This headset immerses you completely in the game that you are playing with 110 degree field of view , once the headset is put on it feels as if you are actually standing right in the game, rather then just looking at a monitor or tv screen. A big step for augmented reality gaming in the future.The reality (mind the pun ;) ) of this technology being released to consumer's and being available at a reasonable price is a lot sooner then you think with dev kits being released as early as May 2013.
Stories of dual-GPU graphics, stringent anti-piracy measures and a Christmas 2013 release date currently comprise the whirlwind of Xbox 720 rumours.

Alex DiFiori: "There’s been a lot of buzz lately about Ingress, Google’s latest foray into online social networking. Instead of focusing on creating another facebook, Ingress is Google’s attempt at using that massive pile of data they’ve been collecting about us to use in a way that hasn’t really been done before, in an augmented reality game" ...
This article looks at the google glasses and the possiblity of creating an Augmented reality where you can turn ANY real life environment into a 'battlefield' for first person shooting games just by wearing the glasses.
I think the fun factor of being able to turn any environment you want into a 'map' to game on and then play a first person shooter in it could definetly make this extremely successful. This could definately be the future and next level of gaming.
Although this new way of gaming could be extremely fun it may not be appealing to all gamers and/or porffesional and competitive gamers who prefer to be inside in a relaxed position instead of having to be physically active for long periods of time while they game.
This could be an issue as to how succesfull and widespread this new form of gaming will be with a lot of people not wanting to have to be physically active while they game. This could hinder the success however there could still and probably will be a huge market for this type of gaming with how immersive and interactive it is.
Theres also huge possibilities with advertising with this sort of gaming aswell.
