LOS ANGELES – For the past year or two, soothsayers in the interactive entertainment business have claimed that virtual reality is the future of video games. But they’re wrong.
Virtual reality is the future of home entertainment as a whole. Mark my words. Video games are simply going to be the thin edge of the wedge, proving that a technology that used to seem like a sci-fi pipe dream is now ready for prime time.
Jade Raymond says, "We're always looking to think of new ways to surprise players."

Ubisoft Toronto managing director Jade Raymond is hopeful that one day video games can be more immersive than Star Trek's fictional Holodeck simulated reality system. During a speech at Gamelab recently, Raymond spoke about how the coming of wearable technology, virtual reality devices, and other further technical innovations will mold the future of gaming.
