    $ony announced and showed this off last week.
    i really hope this is a very early prototype because if this is how its going to be once released its a MASSIVE disappointment!
    it looks exactly the same as the original except the camera.
    and the biggest design fault with the original is still there.
    most of the devices weight is at the front, resting on your forehead and nose.
    yea, few minutes and it starts to get seriously uncomfortable!
    everyones screaming IT NEEDS A ABOVE HEAD STRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    but has $ony listened!?
    makes me wonder though if john carmack has seen this or even helping out on it.
    he says hes been in touch with $ony with the previous device and improvements he would like to see with it, id be really cool if $ony brought him in to help out.
