As a keen console gamer for three decades it is clear that significant changes have occurred in the industry. In the early 8 bit and 16 bit generations, products shipped to retailers, were reviewed, and if they were good (or had a sizeable marketing budget) then they would join the honourable yet foul stench of bad feet and good nutsacks in the bedrooms of teenage boys.

The HTC Vive will be paired with wireless controllers and tracking technology to let wearers explore computer-generated environments by walking round their rooms.
The machines let wearers view computer-generated 3D environments to give them a sense of being there.
A test version of the kit will go on sale to developers shortly, followed by a public edition later this year.
It will compete with Facebook’s Oculus Rift and Sony’s Morpheus VR headsets.
The Vive headset was developed in conjunction with Valve, creators of such ground-breaking games as Portal and Half-Life.

Vive is powered by Valve’s SteamVR so plenty of games that take advantage of its capabilities will soon be available on the Steam service.
