Can understand you not being interested, it depends on what you do in VR. Unless you play more than 5 hours sessions a day, battery dying is not going to be an issue. What is with the constant battery exploding thing that people keep going on about, anyone would think it's a widespread issue, which it clearly isn't.
It would be good for athletic type games (boxing, VR Sports). These are games that I rarely play longer than 1-2 hours. But the current pricepoint isn't worth it imo, since I would still rather run outside than work up a sweat in VR.
