Immersive Movie Experience

Is this the future of watching movies? Check out these video clips, which claim to be taken in one shot with no post production processing, about immersive movies using the PlayStation 3:

In the past, projection mapping worked only from a single, static view point, and thus was very limited. By attaching the PlayStation Move to the camera, we can track projections to screens in real time, enhancing the effect of spatial deformation and false perspective on the projections and allowing viewers to look round (virtual) corners, bend walls, create a hole in the wall, or remove the walls altogether to reveal vast expanses of virtual worlds.

Real? Fake? What do you think? YouTube Clip 1, Clip 2, and Clip 3

It looks like it's basically the same idea as those videos projected onto buildings. The diference is that this uses a motion control camera which matches the movements of a pre-rendered animation so that it looks like we're getting a different perspective when the camea moves. It's pretty cool... but would look very odd from any other vantage I reckon.
