He's right. I wasn't expecting this to be cheap or affordable in the first place. And the people running back over to the Vive are going to find an even higher price tag.

VR is going to be a flop if it focuses on gimmicky bullshit like motion controls, head movement, eye-tracking, etc. I think VR has a place to possibly replace the TV/monitor for more immersive experiences (although clearly this won't always be possible and traditional TV and monitors will always be an option).

But if they start doing gimmicky shit that dumbs down the game and gives up control and accuracy for gimmicks, then it will fail. The motion control shit might be cool as a quick gimmick that loses its luster fast. But in terms of a viable piece of technology, I believe it has to do more with high end graphics and surround sound that makes you feel there and immersed, while the controller allows you to still fluidly control the game instead of waving your arms around or craning your neck around.

Wasn't there a video about the OR where the guy was talking about how he wanted to make an affordable VR product for the average gamer?

I'm pretty sure people thought that the Rift would be like 100$ because of that.
>>
I don't see how VR opens up possibilities for new genres, but I agree that this is a typical business move that targets early adopters and not the mass market, therefore the price shouldn't be compared to consoles, mid-range monitors or smartphones.
Early adopters usually don't care that a product costs 600$ instead of 400 or 500, this is the first "complete" VR on the market and they're hell-bent on getting their hands on it.

I think the real problem, insofar as gimmicks are concerned, is that no one knows how to expand upon a gimmick anymore. To be brutally honest, 3D itself was basically just a gimmick, but you had games like Mario 64, Tekken, Quake, FFVII and a whole host of other groundbreakers to show what 3D could do. So long as the ONLY use of head tracking and motion control is for shit like FNaF or The Same VR Demo from 1988, just with smoother textures, then, yes. It will flop. But innovation in gaming hasn't been on anyone's list of priorities for so long, its really worrying if there will be a company that can make games for the OR that csan show off ALL its potential or not.

You seem to be negatively defining gimmick, which would be fine because it has less value as anything else.

It's not a trick. Great FOV and better spacial resolution and visual processing from 3D aren't just memes. It's a gateway in to the introduction of color theory and formulaic contrasts, even for optimal multiplayer design. Characters can be more discreet looking because the 3D effect gives more definition. It also promotes a fresh standard for "games with a required X amount of graphics settings" so that competitive games have no place to turn off graphics for benefits.

It's a gimmick.

I'd say the best example of how VR will be viewed is the same as high framerate film.

People are used to games looking a certain way. They're 2D representations of 3D objects. Just like how motion blurred 24FPS is a representation of the real world.

Is it "better" to have a game in full 3D? Sure. Is it useful enough to warrant strapping a screen to your face? Not even close.

It's not even useful enough to justify wearing 3D glasses for the vast majority of the market. Or staring in a specific "sweetspot" location, a la the 3DS.

The product will fail because the thing it does well, is something that nobody really cares about, and that adds nothing to gaming.

But the vive will be better technical wise and cheaper, because oculus just shot themselves in the fucking foot. I was expecting 300, 500$ at MAX. But 600$ is just because they added a bunch of socila feature crap to it and the facebook icon.

Head-tracking is not a benefit in 99% of games people play. Only the sim scene has any use for it, and the existing solutions work fine and don't cripple the most vital sense.

What you're saying is pretty similar to saying "why don't we all use analog sticks for movement instead of WASD?". It's inaccurate trash, people would rather use a mouse instead of their whole fucking head.

There isn't anything else on offer from the device.

>I'm not exactly sure where people got the impression that the Rift is going to be cheap tech.

Well, MAYBE, but just MAYBE because they said it themselves that they are aiming for the same price the developer versions went by, price range 250-400$. They promised us that, and just fucked us over and slapped a 600$ price tag on that. I'm 100% positive that the production cost of this thing is not nearly as high, and that they could have sold it for 399$. Or just not include a goddamn xbox one controller and force it on you.
Many, many more people would have bought it at a 399$ price range, including me and many others that I know.

Ofcourse the cost isnt that high.

Its a fucking smartphone taped to your face, but without all the tech that makes a smartphone expensive.

its literaly just a phone screen and a motion tracker.

I never questioned the pros of VR, its awesome when you use software thats made for it. I still personally think the resolution and persistence issues are going to take a while to solve but as is its adequate.

My skepticism comes from the Cons of VR. Just like motion controls its not a replacement device, it doesn't work for all genres, its insular and can be fatiguing during long sessions. I still question its staying power past the honeymoon period with a lot of users where they are initially "OOH and AHH'd" then come to the conclusion that while it was neat they wouldn't use it long term.

The processing power and display tech will come in time but getting enough people to use VR daily so that developers want to jump on the bandwagon and make big budget games from the ground up for VR is still up in the air.

What? I literally just said that there are already existing solutions for head tracking, they've been around for a decade.

If it was at all useful, they would have tried pushing it on casual gamers already.

There are 2 different set-ups for headtracking. Either my crosshair moves with me, or it doesn't.

If it does, then you wind up with a really "realistic" set-up of turning left, and then having to move your mouse left while you turn back to a neutral position so you don't wind up turning 180 degrees and breaking your neck.

If it doesn't, then you wind up in an incredibly awkward position. Why would you ever glance left, when you can move your mouse to the left and back in half the time while maintaining perfect accuracy?

It adds nothing to most games, only being annoying.

This is the same problem devs kept bringing up concerning the PS4 VR headset.

They kept telling Sony no one would support this because they either would

A) have to make their games look like even more shit because PS4 cant handle processing VR at that quality

B) it would segregate the consumers, and which dev in their right minds would make a game for a niche base that actually owns the headset, when they can make a game that everyone can use.

That's like saying frames per second, resolution or aspect ratio is a gimmick. Just because you CAN play pretty much any game in 30 fps, or 480p doesn't mean that's as far as tech should develop.

3D is a fad that goes in and out of vogue. 3D movies make money because people going to see a 12 dollar movie are willing to pay an extra 3 or 4 bucks to see it in 3D since they only go a few times a year and they are probably taking their kids anyway.

Actual 3dtvs sold about how the oculus rift will sell. It's a neat little toy for people with more spending money than common sense but the idea that it's going to change design paradigms for the medium is fucking dumb. It's a screen glued to your face.

I probably can't afford this, but has anyone tried the Samsung one? have an S6 and $99 isn't too bad, even if it's just ok.

Why is the word gimmick universally used as a negative?
>>
>>322916775
pretty much this. I don't see the excitement about this.

It's just gonna be the same games we have now anyway.

Would have paid $500 if it didn't have the shitty headphones and xbone controller, neither of which I need.

So are graphic adventures and point and click games going to make a comeback?
>>
>>322913628
You can't convince a large audience with a very costy object. If there are no consumers for alternate ways of playing, there will be no games. It will stay one accessories never reaching its full potential, just like wheel/Pedals on racing games.

tl;dr it is already dead before being even out.
>>
>>322932558
Someone claimed it wasn't a gimmick and I simply pointed out that it was. You seem to be in agreement with me on that point.

It's not tho.
Just by changing the country to UK it jumps up to 500 pounds, which is 720 dollars, pre tax and shipping.

Why the fuck would you want to aim a different place than what you're looking? In what scenario would that be useful in gaming?

Is there any games where VR will be used in a non-on rails game that isn't Star Citizen/Elite?

I still feel that games will be using it for gimmicky shit for a long time, and that it will require too much area space to be used in expansive games.
>>
>>322934003
Because these products are talked about as if they're revolutionizing our very existence.

Guys, guys, $350 IS similar to $600.

A comfortable chair improves your gaming experience. You're just making vague statements of nothing. If I can unplug it and still play the same games then it's not a technological revolution.
>>
>>322925794
Crysis also wasn't a piece of hardware with hi-res screens and head tracking.
>>
>>322934629
It's useful in flight sims and that's about it. Something you can use your mouse for with one key modifier.
>>
>>322925953
The sort of people buying a 600 vr headset are going to be aware that its not plug and play
>>
>>322929763
Consoles were worth the same in euros as they were in dollars, so it should be 600 euros.

>>322913628

You fags need to into capitalism
>>
>>322915629
this

if one is on /v/, they're obviously not:
>playing games
>doing anything productive
>in touch with reality

$600 ain't shit to anyone besides kids and poor fags. I'm on the poor side right now but I could easily cut down on expenses and save up

The fact that it has anything to do with Facebook is what worries me. I figure once it's worn once, your face is on profile.
>>
>>322936074
Shareholders tend to appreciate you justifying your business decisions.
>>
>>322915629
People trade in phones or get on contracts for that kind of hardware. Its not 800 upfront.
>>
>>322936223
>$600 ain't shit to anyone besides kids and poor fags.
I could afford a rift, a $600 4k TV or an iphone. Doesn't mean it's worth paying that much for them.
>>
>>322913628
Damn hes so desperate to feel himself alive.

Arnt HTC making a headset in collaboration with valve? That is going to be the Porno Xtreme™ headset. I am waiting for that one before I buy anything.

>>322936583
This. What games are people going to play on this? On rail shooters like old arcade games, or Elite Dangerous/Star Citizen where you sit in a cockpit and fly around?
>>
I'm not annoyed it's $600 I'm annoyed Palmer said it was going to be around $400.
>>
>>322936559
I paid €650 upfront for a phone and as a result saved a lot of money.
>>
>>322936240
Well, that's easy: They can demand that price at the start while still selling a fuckton.
I think the shareholders would agree with that thinking.
>>
>>322936880
This. These same fags talking about how nobody should be surprised at the price were the ones saying it was only going to get more affordable as time went on.
>>
>>322937025
We are talking about average consumers. Average consumers see a contract and think its a good idea to jump on board for a few years with the potential to trade up.
>>
>>322937569
Yeah but that costs way more for way less. Its essentially a really bad credit deal that you get locked into.
>>
>$599
fucking called it
was hoping for $499 though, and had a vague, optimistic hope of $399
>tfw no one buys this because of the cost

also, didn't read, fuck that noise

>>322914883
no idea how anyone got that
Gear VR, a device with no screen built in (your phone slots in) and is on the market RIGHT NOW, costs $100.
it does have its own accelerometers and shit though, it's not just a $100 frame for your phone, but it's still more expensive than it probably should be

I'm still wondering where some of the Rift cost is coming from though. You have the screens, the optics, the sensors, and what else? What the hell is bringing it to $599, weren't they selling these at a loss? Aren't just about all the components in the thing pretty much phone tech with some major R&D behind it?

>>322933854
it's a screen glued to your face that makes it seem like you're somewhere else

>>322933779
isn't that literally true in JonTron's case, didn't he sell out

>>322923878
I don't remember any defense force for 3D TVs.
fuck, I don't know anyone who even thought twice about them, they were expensive, the effect was relatively unimpressive for the most part, and you couldn't really do much with them

>>322936223
With $600, I could go and build a fairly decent machine with that kind of money. For a single purchase, that is a decent chunk of change.

>>322915629
>$800 phone
people generally buy things like that on contracts or with payment plans
sure, they're spending more in the long run, but people at large generally don't think like that, $30-50 a month is just another bill, while $600 in one go seems like a ton of money because they don't save
>>
>an accessory costing about as much as a PS3 on launch

Surely this won't fail, fellow jude

Bain?

Is it just me or wouldn't prices be lower if they didn't give out fuckin free ones to the ones who already got what they paid for with the DK1?
>>
>>322938730
Then you are required to buy software aka games to enjoy unless you own some of the few games that have prepared for VR already.

600 $ sounds about right to me. I just don't know if thats a good price for the resolution. I talked to one of the guys that works at a game store near me who got a dev kit, and he said " Don't get one that displays in 1080", because there's a lot of little black gaps that you can still see when the resolution is that low. i would defiantly need to try it before i buy it though.

feels great bro

>>322913628
I agree with everything he said. Sound like he has a PC build similar of mine. Same monitor, probably bought 2x980TIs to run everything at [email protected], just as I intended.

However, I refuse to purchase or support anything that Facebook has put it's filthy, slimy, corrupt hands into or on.
>>
>>322935292
>1 game

Sure worth the $600 dollars price tag
>>
>>322939029
It does. I hope they ship in February or even January so we can use them weeks before anyone who paid for them.

I was a young poorfag when it was first announced and watched with wonder wanting to get one. Feelsbadman. Makes me salty

>>322913628
I'm getting a [email protected] + variable-sync monitor at the end of the year, and a Pascal or Fury 2 this summer/fall to power it.

That's 8.29MP/frame and upwards of 995MP/s.

Even if the Rift is stuck at 2160x1200, it's stupid for them to release something that can't even consume the full bandwidth of HDMI 1.4, much less HDMI 2.0, DP 1.2 or DP 1.3.

I could tolerate the shit resolution if this thing went to 144 Hz or beyond.
