I can understand that.
And honestly I don't forsee VR being a tournament concept for anything, really.
The thing about tech, and peripherals, is that it's ALWAYS about good design. But good design is dictated by the task.
The biggest problem with the wii was developers not making games that utilized the wii's controller and instead mapping digital button presses onto an analog baton. It makes no sense even on paper. Of course people hated it.
In that same vein, people who play games that require precision, quick response and repitive tasks are going to find VR cumbersome and painful. After-all, computers were basically BUILT to eliminate and make easy the things that VR is now trying to build. So VR is going to succeed where PCs aren't already the better-solution.
I think this is amazing, but I don't really see playing Red Alert this way. Now Populous? Absolutely. Magic Carpet? Holy cow, definitely.
