Vive will probably be similar price, but they won't add a bunch of shit you don't need.

You wont get a shitty xbone controller
You wont get shitty built in headphones
You wont get a pointless little remote

You WILL get the magic wand controller things which you'll have to fork out like $250 later on for the Oculus.

two of the main reasons vr didn't take off the first time is because of the cost of the hmds and the fact that nobody really had the hardware to power them. pricing the headset out of most people's reach and also telling devs to optimize their games with specs in mind that are several times more powerful than most people's pcs doesn't seem like a smart move from oculus.

Cheaper than I thought the initial price would be. ( i was expecting $999)

Still too expensive though.

$300 sounds right to me for VR.
Around the same price as a mainstream consumer monitor.

>>
>>52272836
The low price was exciting because it was going to propel VR into the mainstream.

Only the biggest fans with a lot of disposable income will be able to afford an Oculus Rift and a PC capable of driving the thing. It'll suffer the same fate as the Kinect with low adoption giving developers little incentive to work in support.
>>
>>52272877
Palmer has tweeted there has been significantly more pre-orders than expected. However, I'm not taking that as indication of what you're referring to. The DK2 was amazing with much less content, and Oculus and Valve should be able to rile up a decent amount. I now believe VR is 'too big to fail' with Oculus, Vive, PSVR, and mobile (Gear VR). So yeah I should be fine.

Sony usually sell their hardware at a loss, and recoup on software sales. They'll receive a large cut from every PS4 compatible title regardless of who publishes it which should pay off the initial investment.

Differentiating itself from the Xbone regardless of the success of the peripheral and stacking their exclusive titles will steal some customers who were on the fence.
>>
>>52273047
This. Even if the Rift sells like shit and fails, Oculus has already planned for it. Literally, they have said that even if they fail, they're going to keep at it. And then considering they've also confirmed, separately, that they're already working on CV2, it's pretty likely this first generation doesn't matter that much.

Right, the Vive is being marketed as a "no compromise, luxury VR" device, and it's always been said it'll cost more than the Rift. With a lighthouse module for spatial positioning and a pair of hand controllers, it'll likely top $1000 easily.

Sony's PSVR is definitely going to be the cheapest option because Sony already has experience in making HMDs and owns all the necessary facilities to manufacture their own product, it very likely cost them nothing in R&D to make it other than optimizing it for a gaming experience. They also own the system and game ecosystem it's designed for, so they could go for a loss leader strategy and focus on milking profits from content rather than the hardware.

>>52273009
CPUs honestly don't have that big of an impact on 3D performance, if you have literally any quad-core from the last 5 years, it'll run the latest games just fine, VR or not. With the advance of DX12 and other low-level APIs, the strain on slower CPUs will reduce even further as multi-threading will contribute more to game performance.
>>
>>52273106
Mate I'm too poor to afford the graphics card even needed to run the Rift's 2160 x 1200 @ 90Hz requirements, not without dropping what I play to "looks like a fucking potato with crayons on it" mode.

But then HTC went and delayed their product to add in that "breakthrough" feature, it's going to cost more for sure as well. I think that neither company were expecting the final price to be higher in the long run. The Vive will still end up no less in price than the Rift no matter what.

>>52273305
It's not an add-on graphics processor, it's the time-warp and scaling chip.
The purpose of this device is such:
1. Resample and output 1080p @ 120fps to the HMD no matter what the input frame rate or resolution is.
2. If the native frame rate is less than 120, which it will certainly be, it will "warp" the previous frame in space in the direction you're moving your head in, giving the impression of 120hz as far as head motion is concerned, even if the actual content is 90hz.
3. Handle simultaneous output to an external display so that (potentially) others can see what you're seeing.

momentum was really the key in getting vr take off. this isn't the same situation as an expensive iteration of a popular console line that everyone will eventually buy anyway, and that devs will continue to make games for banking on this fact. if oculus doesn't build up a substantial user base fast, devs are going to get spooked and stop making content for it, and if there isn't content for it, nobody besides the early adopting enthusiasts are going to buy it.

>it's always been said it'll cost more than the Rift
Was that before or after we found out that the Rift will be almost double the expected sales price of $350?
People thought the Rift would be $350 and the Vive $500 or so. I'd laugh my ass off if the Vive costs the same as the Rift yet you can get better hardware and motion controllers from the get-go.
>>
>>52273598
That's because the cheap one is basically a DK1 which a bunch of chinks made when Oculus released it for free. Tri-Def only works with DK1 basically, no positional. It's garbage. Things like Verio Perception or VorpX have already replaced Tri-def anyway

>Vireio Perception users would be horrified if they ever learned how close we came to having to scrap the whole project. As a consequence of moving with the times, the Oculus Rift 0.6.X SDK removed much of the architecture needed for Vireio to effectively support DirectX 9 games. We seriously thought we were done for. It's with thanks to a lucky find and some sharp programming that Simon Brown was able to reinvigorate our future prospects by using DirectX 9Ex which was introduced with Windows Vista. Yes, without Vista, Vireio could very well have been done for!

>>52273242 seems like a reasonable reason why they could easily undercut them.

Oculus spent way too much on acquisitions and you're paying for a controller + remote and a silly case you don't need.
>>
>>52273808
It's a free program that has done really well for being composed of a bunch of hobbyists doing it for nothing.

You do realize they're doing better than Tri-Def which is a paid program right? Tri-Def dropped DK2 way early on.

Uhh the actual list of supported games was pretty small since this was before positional tracking. And yeah you need positional for games, it's not like jumping to DX12, it's a big part of VR.
>>
I've been waiting so long for this, literally since 3 years ago when Palmer was just looking for a group buy of 100 parts to send out a DIY kit... I guess I can wait a bit longer and check out reviews of the Vive and compatibility of different programs.

I can't blame them for the price they have so many employees now they need the money, plus it cuts out the poor people who can't afford a good enough gpu then go out and spread bad press because they get sick from the lack of fps.

Gen 2 is what they are aiming at and even in 2 years most people won't have a good enough gpu but at least more people will. What's after Pascal?
>>
>>52270439

>>52273919
I have no doubt in my mind that Vive will be cheaper than Rift + Touch given the current price. Touch needs to ship with another camera and Oculus touts it as being superior than the Wands. They invested a bunch of R&D into it given the acquisitions and the delay.
>>
>>52272940
Probably. Though I'd laugh my ass off if they based their "premium class" talk on Oculus' "affordable class" talk, defined as $200-400 by Palmer Luckey, and now find themselves at a very close price-point, or maybe even cheaper, as we still don't know the price of the Touch (and I'm already expecting $299 plus taxes and shipping in December). The Rift alone is almost pointless to me, I want room-scale, motion-controlled VR, and all their optimized-for-seated-experience-and-gamepad exclusive launch games aren't that much of a treat either. My preorder didn't go through for like twenty minutes and now I got an ETA of May. The Vive might come close price-wise, but even if not, if they keep their delivery estimates, I can have room-scale, motion-controlled VR a month earlier than sitting around with a bloody XBone controller in my lap.
I'm now expecting the Vive in the $1500-2000 range and would shell this amount out, cancelling my Rift preorder, if I don't know what I'm really in for with Oculus by the time the Vive becomes available.

>Rift would be more ideal for my situation since it would do just that for less.

I don't believe the pricing difference will be drastic enough to warrant skipping the added features of the Vive. I also get the distinct impression that Vive has better visuals, due to better lenses and a better panel.
>>
>>52274069
They won't of course but you already need a beefy PC for it anyway so the masses aren't going to get an Oculus Rift. They're taking the Tesla approch with high priced enthusiast models first and then when hardware advances enough they'll release a "Model S" and later a "Model 3"

That's wrong. Oculus is the winner there, with optics at least. They got rid of the light ray artifact that happens with Fresnel lenses. HTC has yet to.

>>52273713

Tridef all but abandoned rift development. But using Tridefs side by side 3d + custom made sweetfx lens distortion injector, I get way better results in many games than vorpx.

I can also use my smartphone HMD that has way better visual quality than DK1/2. Fuck direct mode, its practically ensuring that hacked vr for older games will not work for rift.
>>
So how much is vive going to cost then? Even if it's $150 more it's sooo much better than the oculus.
>>
>>52273508

>there is honestly no question that the Vive is much better

BS, the only advantage Vive has is availability of motion controllers at launch, which Oculus will add later on

other than that they are pretty much identical products, with Oculus likely having a bit superior display and optics (but wait for reviews on that one)

Yeah, I'm only cancelling when I'm on the safe side and can make an informed decision.

TotalBiscuits opinion:

Well, the Oculus is up for preorder and some people are surprised by the $600 pricetag. I'm not exactly sure where people got the impression that the first piece of true consumer-ready VR was actually going to be cheap tech. We are talking about the cutting edge of what is possible with gaming right now, a device that has multiple high resolution, high framerate displays, minaturised and built right into it, advanced head tracking technology and god knows what else. We are also talking about a device that frankly is not, initially, going to run well on the PC hardware that the mass market owns.

If you want to game on this thing, you're going to need a pretty beastly PC. The PC requirements were recently revealed and they are a GTX 970/ AMD 290, along with an upper end i5 processor or equivalent. That is not the average PC, and why would it be? This thing renders at 2160x1200, that's 233 million pixels. 1080p is 207 million. Not only that, but VR tech is designed to run at high framerates in order to reduce motion sickness and blur. According to the FAQ on the site, the two modes it supports at 75 and 90fps. Can your computer run most demanding modern games at 1080p, 90fps? If so congratulations, you are on the enthusiast level and you are the target audience for early adoption of the Rift. If you can't well, before spending $600 on a Rift, maybe think about spending that $600 on upgrades for your PC instead.

There is a difference between running a for profit business and wishfully thinking a $599 device will break big on the consumer market.

>>
>>52274399
I'm sure they have market analysts way more qualified than you or I, look at it this way

you sell 1 million units for $300 but risk bad press because that price point is under the price of the gpus required to run it

or you sell 500000 units for $600 which go towards people who can afford a decent enough computer to run it.

Same profit in the short term but less profit in the long term

Eventually, VR will be mass market tech, I dont have any doubt of that. It's not a gimmick, I've used it, this is not the same as 3d, its tech that at least to me, enhances existing games and opens up possibilities for new genres. For some games, this is a monitor replacement, because I think those games will just look and play better in VR than they will on a standard screen. Speaking of monitors, the monitor I use cost $700. Granted, it's high end, 27 inchs at 2560x1440 144hz native resolution, with gsync, but thats not much more expensive than a Rift. The Rift is for all intents and purposes, a high end display. You expect to pay that much for a high end display. Then again, we have people that wouldn't blink at $2000+ for their bigscreen TV, saying Rift is too pricey. Ok then...

Obviously it depends on what you count as "cost". Most people assume it's the price of the hardware parts plus assembly. What Oculus has to pay the factory, basically.
Though in reality, you could put in all the shit like development costs (every single prototype/material they tried and discarded, thousands of work-hours of people trying out stuff etc.), rent for the buildings they work in, salaries of every employee, Palmer's company car (Lamborghini), utility bills, costs for all those exclusive games, million-dollar acquisitions of other companies etc.
Which is probably closer to the truth, and a way to totally blow up the price of the hardware by making retarded decisions or just overspending on stuff because, you know, Facebook pays, lol. But then finding Mike Zuckerstein not so generous after all.

>will we even see a gen 2?

Kikeberg was expecting a few hundred thousand units sold for the first consumer version. The shitty dev kits sold over 200 thousand even though oculus told people to not buy them if they're not devs so expect CV1 to sell much more

I'd say there's very little chance this will be seen as a failure by facebook, no way they pull the plug on CV2

This is just an assumption. I was expecting a similar roll-out to the one Vive had originally planned - a "limited contingent" in December, the rest shortly after in Q1. This is exactly what is happening now with Oculus, only they sell it as "oh wow, we are so overwhelmed by this massive demand, who would've know?!"

foveated rendering will do nothing except lowering the system requirements a little bit and enable interaction when directly looking at something.

the more important thing is applications finding adoption and i predict this won't be standardised before gen3 arrives.

gen1 is your best bet because it is actually subsidised to a level which it will never be before.

it's like the first commercial nexus devices which went for 350$. not the moto nexus 6 went for msrp 649$

$800 for the Vive is cheaper.
First because the Vive is technologically more advanced.
Secondly because it's going to have actual controllers.

Oculus is $599, Oculus touch controllers will cost what, $200? That is $799. Vive will be $800 minimum. It is not going to be cheaper, it will be around the same price.

You can buy a PS4 for $300. They will probably sell PSVR for $300. In one fell swoop, Sony can completely corner the entire VR market for casuals(I.e. the market that actually makes money) and render every other HMD irrelevant. They have dev support, they have manufacturing, they have the ability to sell "VR in a ($600) box"

For casuals like my dad who likes playing flying sims, It is an absolute no brainer for them.

It's also a strategy to gain a big market share for follow-up products or establish brand loyalty. 2nd generation hardware that ties in to the one you already have; a single new Vive will be considerable cheaper than a 1st gen if the lighthouse and controllers are compatible, so there's leeway for price adjustments. Also their cooperation with Valve can't be ignored; a strategic partnership like this can easily mean Valve subsidizing the Vive substantially, which got ignored by that guy that wrote "no big daddy".

less units sold means the chances of vr failing to take off yet again are increased. if oculus fuck this up, we could be waiting another 20 years until major developers are willing to take the risk of developing for vr again.

Stop pulling this retarded nonsense. Previous "attempts" at VR were pathetic and unusable. There's zero comparison between those things and what's happening now. Even if VR doesn't reach a mass market, it will still persist in enthusiast markets like simulation.
>>
>>52275312
no positional tracking and it constantly overheating is a turn off. and if i'm going to be playing shitty looking games on it, i'd rather they were shitty looking but good, old games with vr support badly hacked in than shitty looking mobile games.

i don't doubt that, but outside of sim stuff, there's still no certainty that large development studios will continue to make content specifically for it, or even just add in support for non vr centric games.

There will be no point, since there will be no uses for it, after oculus killed the PC VR market. Especially if the Vive is the same price.
>>
>>52270439
What used to be 'just take my money' now after all the wait and now this high price point has dwindled down to 'I'll wait some more to see how the competition fares' Also I may just wait until the AMD 490 come out then wait some more for the price to come down. I'll just keep a literal piggy bank for each time my wife wants me to buy something for me and in a couple years I'll have enough to buy everything (omni, touch controllers, video card(s), gun etc.) at once for less than piece by piece.

I think I'll work on building my racing sim hydraulic chair before even getting an HMD now
>>
>>52275437
i'm fine with cheaper and not as "good", and it seem like a lot of other people feel the same way. a dk2 with better screens for $450 would have been great, but i'm not paying $600 for all this extra shit that oculus is adding in.

If it becomes cost effective to make a mass market VR product at some point in the future, the technology will be there to accomodate it. Niche markets will continue to exist and support it in the high end. If you hope that VR will be some kind of ubiquitous consumer videogame standard by 2020, I think you're being unrealistic.
>>
>>52275576
>i'm fine with cheaper and not as "good", and it seem like a lot of other people feel the same way.
People say that and then they get the product in their hands and complain that it's not as good as they had hoped.

>>52274393
>2 months worth of stock
Unless we can put a number on that, it's meaningless. For all we know they could have calculated with 5,000 units per month. Could also be 5,000,000 units. Who knows.

However, Mr. Luckey tweeted this:
>Some people may see their ship date move forward as fraudulent orders in queu are weeded out. Hang tight.
So that means the numbers are even less reliable, whatever they are, because there seems to have been a massive amount of fraud (potentially enough to move the ship date forward by months).

I have a very hard time believing they packaged in an xbone controller out of pocket. Since microsoft doesn't have a competitor in VR, they probably just gave them the controllers to include as a kind of marketing deal.
