Having grown up with gaming, I know that the neat technologies we hear about and those that actually make it to our desk are two very different things.

Let's wait and see
That is true, especially when you need to purchase a gadget for some technology that only is supported by a game or two. I'm rather "optimistic" regarding the eyeball tracking though, as webcams have other uses than games, should have a standardised API for devs, and are fairly cheap. The engineering problems associated with it arent all that daunting either. Once webcams have a high enough resolution (which probably doesnt have to go that much higher) this could be made a standard component in FPS engines or even in the OS itself.
