The new Oculus, codenamed 'Crystal Cove', features a new and improved screen and a 'positional tracker' camera which makes it possible for more accurate and subtle movements.
The new display is not only an OLED panel with higher resolution, but features complex and slightly mysterious new 'low persistence' tech designed to reduce motion blur.
Check out a hands-on video with the new device above.
Unfortunately there's still no word on widespread availability. Oculus have raised more than $75 million in funding, so inevitably a public release will come in time. But the company is adamant it won't release its work to the public until the tech is good enough and the price is low enough - which could mean we spend another 12 months waiting in vain to get our hands on one for real.
The upcoming Xbox One and 360 shooter features massive, hulking mechs, wall-running soldiers and the most intense multiplayer we've tried all year.
For sheer scale and depth, no upcoming game can match Destiny - the open-world shooter from the minds behind Halo.
The original 'Thief' was one of the classic stealth FPS games, and the reboot due on current and next-gen consoles 25 February looks to be carrying on that fine legacy.
Think GTA V meets George Orwell's 1984, set in Chicago, through the filter of The Matrix.
Mario Kart 8
Nintendo would have to do something astonishing to screw up this instalment of Mario Kart, which so far looks like a riot.
Super Smash Bros
Sonic fighting Mega Man, the woman from Wii Fitness and the villager from Animal Crossing. What else do you need to know?
We don't know a huge amount about this mysterious open-world action adventure for the Wii U. But the trailer is pretty enticing - and the development team at Monolith rarely do anything but deliver the goods.
Drive Club is the exclusive racing game the PS4 needed at launch, but lacked. It's certainly beautiful, and detailed, but we're hoping for subtly enhanced gameplay from the pretty staid title we played at Gamescom.
Dark Souls 2
Dark Souls has the hardest-core fanbase you can imagine - this endless, massively difficult questing game is not for everyone, but if you love it you'd probably die for it. The sequel looks immense.
Bayonetta was a ridiculous, combo-filled romp that divided people for its "enthusiastic" (arguably sexist) aesthetic, but thrilled with its fast-paced gameplay. The Wii U exclusive sequel promises more of the same - and a welcome shot in the Gamepad for Nintendo's console.
