They're fun, but I don't really need one. If it becomes a feature in every new game then sure.

Re: Occulus Rift Pre-Orders start today

I would love one but doubt I can afford it... Prices will be announced this evening but I'm sure it will be at least 500-600€+

Aye its looking like 350-400 and the Occulus Touch controllers are not being released until later this year as they've gone back for revision/improvements.

Yeah I'd say at least that. Wouldn't surprise me if they sold it for more....

HTC are unveiling their offering this week too so there's some price pressure on Occulus/Facebook. The HTC device may actually offer more than the Occulus Rift as it contains features like a wireframe view of your real world environment, a feature not available on the Rift.

Isn't Sony also about to release their own VR system? The wireframe thing might be very useful. Especially without a special controller as I can imagine some games to be quite hard to play when you are unable to see your keyboard...

Re: Occulus Rift Pre-Orders start today

played with both the dk1 and dk2 kits stuck the vr mod for 5 nights at freddys and made my brother play it was so funny watching him get scared shitless. and even for me still its not a buy. Way to much money i think there going to be around half a grand which is no way near worth the asking price.
i may wait a year and see if the prices drop on both the htc and the oculus and see then but for now no way.
its even stupid of the to put them up for pre order right after Christmas and new year as well.

Do want, will buy when they have gone through the real testing process which is out on the consumer market. I really want to play Outlast on one.

699€ even in Germany. I assume it's because the US price does not include taxes... Way too much for me. Maybe in a couple of years if the interest in VR hasn't faded by then.

Re: Occulus Rift Pre-Orders start today

There are/will be shortly better systems available at a similar price according to my super into it buddy.
He seems to be considering the HTC one?
So no I don't think I'll get an OR but I'm pretty into the idea of VR.
I reckon I'll probably get a headset before I own a tablet.

Aye thats the one with Tron view if I remember reading correctly. Occulus are up against it with what they're offering.
