Enjoyed Microsoft’s presentation of HoloLens at E3 2015 but with the slightest bit of skepticism? Microsoft executive Kudo Tsunoda recently spoke to Giant Bomb and revealed that the field of view isn’t quite final yet.

“The hardware isn’t final so none of the things are completely done. I think you’re never going to get to full peripheral field of view, but certainly the hardware we have the field of view isn’t exactly final. But I wouldn’t say it’s going to be hugely noticeably different either.”

It’s likely that HoloLens manages to strike gold despite these limitations, much like Kinect did. However, Microsoft had a tough time repeating Kinect’s success later when it updated the hardware. If HoloLens indeed sees an upgrade, will it face the same problems?

Regardless, developers like Cliff Bleszinski still think HoloLens “is damned cool” but “Wish the fov was just a wee bit bigger.” What are your thoughts on the matter? Let us know in the comments.
