This price point has pretty much ensured that the Rift is going to be DOA.
It's going to be serving a niche of a niche. According to the stats, only 1% of all PC gamers even have a rig powerful enough to support a rift. And probably only a fraction of them will be willing to shell out an additional $600
The Rift has priced itself into now being a hard core hobbist item
Could the occulus work as a replacement for a proper monitor?
I live in a somewhat cramped apartment at the moment, would it be possible to more or less simulate having several monitors without wasting space
also I want to be able to strap that thing on and just be a lazy bastard lying on the couch all day
It was always gonna get like that until competition and cheaper mass production methods make it cheaper and more affordable to the everyman. Give it two or three years and the 1% of PC gamers (I'll give you the benefit of the doubt on that stat for the sake of argument) will be significantly higher, and the rift will be a hundred or more bucks cheaper.
So the vive is guaranteed to cost 700 or more.
I don't mine because I'm ready to drop 1.2k on CV VR, but hearing people complain about the price for new technology is going to be annoying for the upcoming months.

You mean when PSVR comes out and people can get a cheaper (most likely, after the PR shitstorm this is going to cause) headset for a console they likely already own?
We already know the graphical capabilities from the dozens of tech demos they have running on PS4s at events, they're fine, especially for a customer who doesn't want to spend a lot of money.
