Well that's interesting, I didn't know Raven already had a VR headset.

What needs multiple posts that can't fit in one?
It technically could fit in 1 post, but I think it's a little nicer this way.  
Making VR game lists for each platform.  
That first post got messed up.  :P ignore it for now.

The first table is done-ish.  (Still have lots to add).  So you can see what I'm doing without it being a jumbled mess.

I did not see this article previously. Just stumbled across it thanks to the N4G comments section.

Microsoft HoloLens indefinitely delayed - Business Insider

Some key points in this article:

- A consumer version of HoloLens is not happening any time soon
- Kinect was pushed into the market before it was truly ready and ended in disappointment
- Microsoft was never able to get the big developers to really commit to Kinect
- HoloLens is trying to reinvent computing and how we interact with programs which has developers starting from scratch in some ways
- The $3,000 developer version of HoloLens is intended to get more practical testing without consumer backlash
- "If a consumer bought one today, they would have 12 things to do with it. And they would say 'Cool. I bought a $3,000 product that I can do 12 things with and now it's collecting dust."
- The man behind HoloLens wants people to stop misrepresenting what HoloLens can actually do
- Microsoft, in nearly every public demo, has made it look like the device puts you in a big world surrounded by holograms
- The implicit promises Microsoft has made with stage demos like Minecraft are not actually what the device is capable of
- The field of view is so small that only a tiny rectangle worth of vision is there to view holograms
- Google Glass ended up failing because reality didn't match hype
