I hardly play video games on consoles. I never owned a game consoles and still prefer my computer for gaming. But I am very impressed by an idea from Microsoft called IllumiRoom. It looks like a really cool improvement of Ambilight, a technique for TVs developed by Philips. Microsoft says IllumiRoom is “designed to push the boundary of living room immersive entertainment by blending our virtual and physical worlds with projected visualizations”. I definitely would be interested in buying a console if this feature is part of it.
