I admit that VR in it's current form is inconvenient. I own the rift and having to run cables for all the sensors, and cables from the headset to the PC is just a pain. Being un-tethered is going to be awesome.

That said, the moment I tried VR for the first time I was so shocked at how cool the experience is that I will never NOT have a VR headset. It is a fantastic experience and Oculus has a great game library. Better than the Vive IMHO. I use my VR on a weekly basis and I really dig it.
