VR is expected to eventually take over the gaming market, and the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) apparently is looking forward to the technology.

"I've already scheduled my own demos to make sure I'm seeing and experiencing everything, so I'm looking forward to VR and AR, finding out how those segments have matured over the past year," said Mike Gallagher, CEO and president of the ESA, in a statement to GamesBeat. "There's so much buzz and excitement. The idea that the technology could be used not only for great video games, but that it could be a $150 billion industry by itself..."

VR certainly looks appealing in the game market, even though interested adopters must be willing to spend some money. Even so, expect gaming to have a major involvement in pushing VR mainstream.
