And when Microsoft finally does make this, they will only use it for casual games where flailing your arms is the only way to have your movements registered.
My thoughts exactly. Have they seriously just stopped everyone from being able to make surround projection screens? Haven't those actually been around for ages anyway?

And lightsabers, don't forget those. Holodeck sounds like star wars technology.DVS BSTrD said:Jet packs: check
Now where are the hover cars and space colonies?
Don't worry brah, I hear Microsoft makes those too. /badjokeDonTsetsi said:So you have to dedicate a whole room just to this? A room with as little furniture as possible. Unless every game can incorporate your bookcases, wall decoration, windows....
I think they're just patenting the name "Holodeck". Aren't they? Other companies/people can still make them, they just have to be changed slightly and not called a holodeck. Like the Wii controller and the PS Move.Blablahb said:How can you possibly patent something as vague as that? American patents are crazy.
