Metal Gear Arcade gets head-tracking VR goggles

It’s been a long time since I’ve been in a modern arcade. Since I suck at Street Fighter 4 and the like, and most of the games are huge money sinks, I’ve been avoiding them for years now. But I might have to drop by and check out Metal Gear Arcade when it drops, because these VR goggles look totally awesome. Tactical espionage combat in stereoscopic 3D? Yes please.

You can watch a trailer for the game here, where it (briefly) shows the glasses, but that’s not really what it’s going to be like. You’re going to be strapped in with a 5.1 system wrapped around your head, a gun in your hands, and freaking VR goggles on your eyes with the excellent graphics of the latest Metal Gear pretty much fooling you into thinking you’re actually there.
