    VR won't kill pinball, just like digital hasn't killed vinyl records. There will always be a niche market for it (yes we are a niche market). That being said VR isn't a fad either. VR is for doing things you can't do in reality; not replacing what can be done. VR will be for experiences you can't normally have.

    Quoted from pezpunk:

    No. Virtual pinball doesn't replace actual physical pinball any more than WCS replaces actually playing soccer.

    But will VR soccer replace actually playing soccer?!!!
