Editors Didn't Like

  • Needs more games and apps
  • Bulky, heavy, not so portable
  • Price is serious business
  • LCD display not great
  • Limited motion controls
  • Controller is only 3DOF not 6DOF
  • No built-in speakers
  • Controller offers only three degrees of freedom, and there's only one controller, which means you can't grab objects or interact with avatars in a social way like you can with more sophisticated platforms
