    I dunno, im just curious, Guru3D is hardcore on gfx and the rez of the rift is a bit crappy in that context( currently ), but are people interested in what it feels like? i have a rift, have to say its the best gaming peripheral ive bought.

    What do you guys think? will it take off? is it another '90's VR fail?

    Only if developers are, otherwise it maybe a waste of time.

    I'll take it if it's free. Won't pay for it though.

    Yea I have my doubts, unless its with the Omni treadmill then definitely NO! Apparently a lot of the people who tried it get mild to extreme motion sickness either whilst using it or after using it. Also unless I can use either a controller or a mouse and keyboard at my desk I will never ever use it. Even with the Omni they use a crappy light gun, and they are using Kinect 1 so its pretty limited in terms of sensor hardware.

    Maybe Oculus 2 or 3 when they fine tune it even more and it won't cost an arm and a leg... and also a kidney to purchase. Heard rumors of just the basic headset costing around £900 and then Omni on top thats around £2000+ erm... no thanks.

    I've been saving up and putting of a new monitor purchase for it. I'm crazy excited for it, I just wish they would give a firm release date already.

    I would love to get one but i dont think id be able to afford it for a while. But we'll see, would seriously consider it if the majority of new games would support it.

    Waste of money. Then again, some ppl around here are stupid rich with new 4-5k rigs every year so.. Anyway, unless I win the lottery I'll pass on this limited use toy

    If I can't do more than play video games with it, I have no interest.

    i've tried it with the developer kit, i can see advantage for it but for gaming i think im gonna pass on it for now. may be the consumer version will be different after it's been polished but after 10mins of it, i get motion sickness like my stomach is turning. the feeling when you're not used to riding roller coasters and wanna puke.

    I've had the dev kit for over a month...and I can say that it is the best thing that's happened for gaming in decades.

    The hype is all pretty much real...when you put it on you're not looking at a screen...you're INSIDE the video game.

    Not sure why you guys aren't more excited for this?! Of course the current dev kit is pretty low res but that will be fixed with the released version, and even with the current resolution gaming is much better with it than on my 37" TV.

    The first few days I used it I did get that motion sickness, but you honestly do get used to it. I can use it for hours now running full speed in a game and feel fine. It just takes getting used to. It's something you definitely have to try to believe though, it absolutely blew my mind when I first put it on and "looked around" in Tuscany. It's also amazing actually being Gordon Freeman :infinity:

    It can be used to watch 3D movies as well right?

    It will go the way of the Segway unless the developers can scale it down to be more like pair of swimming googles (the one piece kind, not two piece). Until then, it is overly expensive, too bulky/heavy and way uncomfortable to wear even for a full 1.5 hour movie.

    For my money, a 4K Ultra HD monitor/TV is more practical than that thing. If I want surround, I would get triple screen lightboost monitors with TrackIR for ARMA 3.

    Not even remotely interested.

    So $10,500 worth of monitors, another $2,000-$3,000 worth of graphics hardware to drive them and another $150 head tracker just to get a fraction of the experience of a ~$300 dollar device.... logical.

    How the Oculus rift is overly expensive I will never understand when you talk about what your comparable setup would be. It's a friggin 400 gram device (final consumer version will probably lighter) that is strapped and balanced to your head. My friggin headphones are 350 grams and are just simply that.

    In any case, this is what the final version is supposed to look like (with a 1080p screen):

    I am looking forward to it getting released, wether or not I will buy it depends mostly on the resolution for each eye, I am not going back to 720p but I want 1080p for each eye.


    From what I seen from War Thunder and TF2 it seems to work pritty well, and very handy in flightsim games.

    I am a graphics whore though and won't sacrify IQ for cool gadgets.

    I am looking forward to it as well, even if I do not know if I will buy the first version I will definitely keep an eye on it and hope that developers will support this and enhance games for it. If it goes well, we will see a lot vr glasses in the future. :)
