Y'know, the Goggle Glass always reminds me of an early screenshot I saw of Mass Effect, even before the next (current) gen came along, with Shepard effectively wearing a blue tooth like device that created a small holographic screen over his eye. I'm sure we've all seen that effect in the games since then. All I can think is that if I could use something like the Google Glass as a peripheral for games like ME, to get real time information on the visual portion, communications into my ear from the audio, plus the ability to use kinect to issue real time orders to my team, even basic things like 'stfu I'm trying to listen to EDI' then the game halts team mate banter, it would just be incredible to experience. A fantastically exciting way to improve the immersive experience. It's not for everyone, granted, but something like that would be amazing as a benefit of using these peripherals.
The thing with control pads is that they're a utility needed to replicate actions we want to make in games, in the past it has been choosing dialogue as well standard control, well peripherals like Kinect and Google Glass can replace that effectively. Again, it's not for everyone, and that's fine, but it would be nice for people like me who like the idea.
One. Warrior. Nation.
