Very cool stuff. I've never been to a Dave & Buster's since the nearest one is an hour from me, but for this I may have to check it out. Have to wonder what kind of [H]ardware they're deploying with the headsets.

"We're excited to partner with HTC Vive in the largest location-based VR activation in U.S. and to bring the most immersive VR system to our customers," said Kevin Bachus, Senior Vice President of Entertainment & Games Strategy at Dave & Buster's. "Across all of our locations, we know families will enjoy the stunning entertainment that virtual reality offers, and our guests can look forward to experiencing new exclusive content throughout the year."
