Virtual Reality Makes A Comeback Using Modern Tech (and A Dreamcast Game)

Some students from USC's School of Cinematic Arts and the Viterbi School of Engineering want you to stop controlling a video game world and start playing in a video game world.

Sounds like the early 90s all over again, I know, but where these kids go right is in using test footage from Skies of Arcadia on the Dreamcast.

While it's just concept footage - they're not actually playing it like that, just showing how the project could work - the goal of the project is to use common, off-the-shelf components like the PlayStation Move, Razer's Hydra and John Carmack's fancy Project Oculus VR headset to put you in a virtual world.

    Kotaku shows this crap, but fails to coverJohn Carmacks' VR tech at E3!? Kotaku used to be about proper game stuff. I find that the only game site that actually talks gaming, and has up to the minute news, is http://www.allgamesbeta.com/

    So, I just watched two people pretend to play future video game from the past nd it was terrible.
