      This isn't the same video, the one that came out a few months ago, was just a 1:30 second teaser, this new video, which was only released to day, is an almost 6 minute demo.

      That could be the best thing to happen to gaming in a long long time, if its used to its full potential.

      That is some cool **** ...its obviously best when it has access to games source code...if MS busts this out Sony will be looking to compete with it somehow.

      I dont really know, i didnt think those features added something interesting enough to the games, also i could not stop thinking that it would actually be better with an actual projector.... or a holograpich pyramide with the same features might be cool as well, but i cant really see myself playing tekken with illumiroom, but some rpgs might be cool. And Survival horror wouldt be stunning, it seems too much like a gimmick, and they might downgrade the projector because of prising, like when the kinect came out! id love me some Milo!!!

      I like the lighting effect during the driving game. The cell shade effect while playing borderlands is pretty neat too.

      now thats out of the way, its about damn time they created something other than simply increasing polygon numbers on a small screen.

      "total" immersion is what i am wanting and this just may help in that and hopefully the other manufacturers will follow the lead in providing something other than shiny turds of games that take a few hrs to complete but look pretty

      radial wobble looks awesome

      Anyone else find this too distracting? When I play games I don't want to sit there and have random beams of light flying out at me. Just seems like your peripheral vision would get in the way, especially during a full focused match of CoD.

      if this awesome device eventually comes with the xbox720, then I'm switching to M$ for my next gen.

      Lol same here.
      Maybe it could be a bit annoying during CoD MP oder something but on single player you should be focused enough to play the game and enjoy the effects at the same time.

      I can't believe that they are not focusing at something like the oculus rift, think about the oculus rift teamed up with a device like the Kinect(just much better at detection motion) and other people could see what you are doing on the tv screen... as i see it, this is more like a gimmick, and it does not add enough to the game thought the idea was nice, they could have gone all out like with something that sends the lights 360 degrees over the room.

      This is the way it should be. Just something to add to the system and not the main atraction. I my oppionion thats what went wrong with: wii kinect en move they wanted to do evrything with it.

      yeah, no problem, i never meant that an oculus rift like apparatus in connection with a kinect like sensor would be the main attraction, but rather an extra, just like the move or the kinect is today(first person perspective games only), this would be so much better, than those addons since you would be submerged in virtual reality, with the kinect sensor picking up your movements. But i respect your opinion and i recon that illumiroom has a few practical sides, but not something i would buy.

      Your comment was not aimed at my comment was it? i guess i am a little

      While it may look cool, I would rather skip it in favor of a whole room hologram. Kind of like the Holodeck on Star Trek. Think about this for a moment. It really is a wide display projector right now. I am glad they chose to wait for it's release rather than throw it out in the wild with the X720 launch. Once they have the ability to do all this with no tv needed, then and only then, will I buy it.

      I feel this is a gimmick.

      It's just a projector being use to set the atmosphere. Sure, that's great, but do tell me what makes it better than hooking up the console to a projector that makes that whole area that this gimmick uses and makes it your actual screen?

      I'd rather have that than some "oh look at the sparkles" on the outside of my screen.

      Why not have a projector screen and this at the same time

      Could be doable, but if I have a projector that's able to display a larger image than this thing, i do not think it will work.... MS is more than likely to make it some cheapo projector to cut costs.

      IMHO I only like it for lighting and the weather effect it showed. Also it would be cool to see things come off the screen like in "fruit ninja". I do think it works well with FPS, yet. Also it defeats the purpose of having a TV at that point, why not just get a projector so that it messes well with the wall and use the entire wall as a display? lol

      This is way cool, but I bet the price tag will be around the $250-$300 mark.....just a guess obviously.

      Also here is another link http://mashable.com/2013/05/01/micro...umiroom-video/

      Why not just adding a second hdmi or VGA output to the Xbox, and everyone cold use a regular projector if needed. I mean, some of us already use projector of any kind and brand.
      I know they want to sell there stuff, but at the end it would be the coolest solution....
