>there are poorfags on /v/ RIGHT NOW that can't afford $599
>Not including shipping
>Not including touch controllers
>Not including the shipping for the controllers
>Not including import tax
Why did it have to be $599 US dollars
didn't anyone learn from Sony's mistake?
And this is just a peripheral, not even a whole console, I can't for the life of me justify spending that much on a peripheral
>kickstarter gets put up
>say they're aiming for $200 but $300 is their max

>Luckey is quoted saying that something $600 "might as well not exist" because nobody will buy it at that price

>>>"If you complain about the price it's because you're poor!"
I could afford $599 and much more. But it would be a waste of money since there's no must play games on that thing atm. And prices will drop sharply after a year anyhow, so there's no point in paying $599 now.
>mfw people seriously are pre ordering the Oculus
The Vive will be around the same price, be bundled with useful stuff, such as the controllers rather than a bunch of shit you don't need like a remote and xbox pad. It is being made and shipped by HTC, who unlike Facebook are not babby retards at shipping, so the cost will be far lower. On top of all that, the Vive is a better system.
>there are people who can't justify this purchase because of the lack of games, when the real use is going to be Japanese pornography
How do you faggots even live with yourself? This shit is going to revolutionize your fapping.
pc master race, eh?
thought you fuckwads had infinite money.
it's gonna be hilarious when psvr launches for $300 with no man's sky, ace combat 7, and doa xtreme 3 @ launch
You still need a PS4 to use it though, so the price works out to the same if not more.
Besides, PSVR will flop because Sony themselves said that unless a game is being written deliberately to use VR it will not function correctly with it
People seem to think that PSVR will let them use their existing PS4 games and make it virtual reality. It doesn't. That isn't how it works.
I'm just going to wait. The initial launch of Oculus is going to be buggy anyways. I'll wait a couple months or so for them to drop the price and for reviews to surface.
Most Americans would be financially ruined if they had to buy an Oculus.
The Occulus Rift must be a fucking time machine because it feels like i've gone back to 2006.
>$250 for ps4
>$300 for psvr
>in total $550
>exclusie studios and games like polyphony digital, media molecule, and sony japan
>$599+1 for Oculus
Here's the image, ready to be spammed on Twitter to Luckey.
And 99% of Americans would be ruined if they had to buy a car suddenly. What the fuck is your point? I agree the price is steep and I'm going to wait for the price to drop but this argument is fucking stupid.
A VR headset isn't an emergency commodity. Its an entertainment/recreational piece of hardware.
Gotta pay those paper-""""house"""" and iPhone bills after all
>Hurrdurr must be a kid
Yeah that sweet VR tech from the 90's sure is the same shit as today, you sure showed me.
I don't get it. Oculus needs a beast of a PC to function really well. And then we have the PS4. A console that can barely just about do 1080p and 60fps if the game looks like shit.
Will their thing just be a worthless piece of gimmick nobody wants or are they doing something very different from the Oculus?
did you see the fucking minimum requirements for the oculus, shitstain?
you can't use oculus with a $300 pc, fuckboy
Watch people say the same thing in 6 years.
>Oh it didn't even have a CPU or GPU so you needed to connect it to your powerful PC, and it was too expensive, it was destined to fail
Will you be buying the Oculus Rift or waiting for the Vive? Both?
>buying oculus instad of vive
>buying inferior technology at a markup price
>Comparing the "VR" of the 90s to the VR we have now
That's like comparing the first shitty mobile phones that required a carrying case to smart ones of today, you fucking retard, its nothing alike.
What kind of retard will be getting a Rift?
>Made by jewbook
>Doesn't come with the controllers
>Retarded shipping costs because its being made in America
>Vive made by tech gooks
>Comes with the controllers
>Low shipping cost because its being made in Japan
The only reason anyone would take a Rift over a Vive is if Valve went full retarded and made the Vive cost $1000 or some shit, and even then it would be cheaper for some people due to shipping.
>You still need a PS4 to use it though, so the price works out to the same if not more.
And you need a $1500 Windows PC to use the Rift. So in total you have to spend $2100.
Seriously, for this price I rather just buy a silicone loli sexdoll as they cost roughly the same.
I heard someone saying there is a warehouse in Australia and they're still asking for over $100 in shipping.
>recently moved out
>immediately saved up a buffer of $8000 that I never touch
>will be used for high surprise bills, and to live off of if I lose my job and need to get a new one
How do people not do this?
I'd completely believe that. Not much for tinfoil hats, but if you think Palmer isn't jewing hard for his Facebook masters, you're an idiot.
Its why its bundled with the 360 controller and a shitty little plastic remote, drive up those prices.
Jesus fuck, Sony must be laughing their asses off because now they either are looking at their competition putting a massive price tag that's higher than theirs or they just got six months to budget a lower price tag before E3
>Would you like the Touch Controllers with that?
>Just $100 plus $49 in shipping, good goy
$300 mark my words
PSVR WILL BE $300 AND BUNDLED WITH NO MAN'S SKY
Valve are laughing too. Sony was going to do okay regardless, it was going to be a lower price, its a lower price piece of shit that'll just be playing arcade games on the ps4. Valve however are going to sell their shit for the same price or slightly lower and completely destroy the Rift.
Its the ps3 launch all over again.
i just dont i never have i have always felt like saving money just gives others an excuse to ask to borrow it probably has to do with my mother always taking money if i didnt spend it fast enough i actually feel shanme of my paychecks overlap eachother not sure how to correct this behavior one of the reasons my rap name is MC super evil
>i just dont i never have i have always felt like saving money just gives others an excuse to ask to borrow it
Nigga just say no
>one of the reasons my rap name is MC super evil
The fuck is going on here? Am I being baited?
no you are not being baited if i ever decided to try being a rapper that would be my name cause i recognize i am pretty evil and im not very good at telling family no i feel pressure before it even starts
i cant stop eating meat either i have alot of issues
Just like the PS4 vs Xbone, the PSVR vs Rift battle will be decided by sony adopting the same strategy: doing absolutely fucking nothing.
It's already pretty bad PR move that they sold off to fucking Facebook, and now that they are adopting the PS3 marketing scheme, their last hope to stay relevant in the industry is their 1~2 months lead over the HTC Vive and ~6 months(I assume) lead over the PSVR.
Not that they give a shit. Luckey and his buddies already made bank. Oculus could go bankrupt tomorrow, they won't give a flying fuck. It's Cuckberg's problem now.
Humanity can't afford to give money to Kikebook.

better question. why would I buy this pc garbage to play this?
when I can buy a ps4 AND psvr for less and get THESE??
I have money, I'm far from poor, but I wouldn't be if I constantly spent it on overpriced gimmicky shit.
Buying VR this early is like buying a 4K 3D TV. Sure, content will come out, but by the time it does, it's gonna drop in price by the hundreds and have a lot of competitors. I won't buy a paperweight just because I can.
By the time the price drops a new version is out for the current price. Do you even consumer technology? Better get used to them 600$ VR devices for the next decade.
Wow, so revolutionary, truly what VR is all about
>there are people who think the console VR wont be the gimmicky one, being so severely limited by its power yet needing to reach 3 times the framerate to not cause nausea
It literally will only do shitty little indie games, games with no scope, no freedom, no exploration, and or no graphics
Consolefags are this fucking dumb
The first display screens ever, the projector movie screen, gave everyone motion sickness
Because they had never experienced that level of simulated immersion
Nausea from VR proves its just as profound as the first movie screens
Remind me why facebook bought occulus? There's no way your average facebook user would even consider getting a pc capable of vr. Surely their market would be buying the Gear, or just a cardboard?
>adds a complete third dimension to your gameplay
You're all just mad your shitty NEET lifestyle wont allow you to earn enough money to live with your waifu.
>Pictures? ISHYGDDT!! XD I'll wait for moving pictures.
>Video? ISHYGDDT!! XD I'll wait for 3D?
>3D? ISHYGDDT!! XD I'll wait for VR
>VR? ISHYGDDT!! XD I'll wait for consciousness upload
If they could sell only the essential thing, without the included controller and cables and charger, and free games, it would cost $100 less.
I think within a year of official release we will get such "lite" versions of the pack, maybe even being sold at a loss.
Overall, early adopters are imbeciles being used as test subjects, as is always the case.
>buying gaming systems on release
Tip top kek kok.

And what are the alternatives exactly?
>won't work on PC
>1080p, will most likely have FPS problem as well
>requires an external processing unit
>no porn games
>will still cost at least $400
>won't be out ever
>will cost $1000
>has weird room VR gimmicks that'll probably be broken as fuck
I'll just wait until the price drops to $400. VR is for enthusiasts anyways, core gamers probably wouldn't buy it if were $300.
>mildly suggest to some /v/ shitposters that something may be shit and/or overpriced
>get told that apparently Im a poorfag and every person on /v/ has a $1000/hr job
just because you supposedly have money (probably cuz you live with your mommy LOL) doesnt make something not shitty and overpriced fuck off
The "weird room gimmick" works perfectly fine, though it'll be pointless if you don't have much space on hand.
>Won't be out ever
Comes out just a few months after the Oculus.
>Will cost $1000
We don't know the cost yet, but if you think it'll be more than the Rift you're kidding yourself. HTC have factories to handle production better than the shitty samsung ones the Rift uses. Shipping won't be a cunt because its heading from Japan not America, and Valve have a vested interest in getting VR out there, not just in selling hardware, as they have steam as a platform for VR games. So they make money from software. Oculus don't, they need to make cash from the hardware sales.
>there are retards on /v/ right now who buy into VR at such an early stage
come back in 10 years when this shit doesn't suck and has actually good games
>good and reliable company
>good production values
For fucks sake, their success was even more recent than the Facebook one. They are newbies too, even more so, especially outside Asia.
>requires an external processing unit
So does the Oculus.
I have 6 usb 3.0s but only 2 of those are in the front. Fuck em. The back of my pc is not that easily accessible.
You're an idiot. An external processing unit will most likely be a $200+ external GPU.
Your problem can be solved with USB splitters/extenders, which will cost under $20 on newegg.
You mean the laying of the foundations for the VR Revolution to potentially, maybe, happen 5-7 years in the future, when the tech is cheaper, there are enough people who own the hardware to justify making games for it, we've gotten better at both the hardware and software through trial, testing and iterating, and the one solid killer app using new mechanics shows up?
People who buy VR before 2020 are test subjects. I mean, thanks, I love that you are enabling the growth of VR, and I hope the corpses of your wallets will feed what might end up something great down the line, but buying early is always a mistake. 3D and motion controllers were too supposed to be revolutions, remember.
oh god, this was 10 years ago
what have i done with my life?
>saving money meme
Inflation eats them right up. Best enjoy your resources as soon as you get them. Money is literally useless unless you exchange it for something.
>some people have hundreds of hours worth of hard labor placed in a bank account where it loses value every day
Horrible. Buy that treadmill you've been meaning to get so you can lose fat while you watch Breaking Bad. Go visit Rome. Get a third monitor.
Affording is one thing. Wanting to spend that much on a gimmick is another.
Last year I played with OR and as much as it was pretty cool, I got bored after an hour.
People who want VR glasses are the same type of persons who like Wiimotes, Move and Kinect.
Wanna buy it in Australia?
$1100 not including shipping.
How do I make enough money online to get a 3DS /v/? Im a poorfag. Everything is a scam or way too inconsistent to even last 30 minutes at $5 USD/hr. UHRS was treated like the second coming and it is horrible. I miss the days of Chacha as shitty as it was.
I always have 2 full months worth of sallary saved up, so if my life suddenly goes to shit I won't stand helpless.
It's a backup. A safety net, and you must be an idiot "impulse yolo" faggot to seriously believe this is a dumb move.
>justify making games for it
There are plenty of people making games for it. I guess by "games" you mean "Big budget shitty Ass Creed titles" and shit.
There is more than enough software, games and porn already out for the device, and a lot more is going to start hitting soon.
Nothing anon, but its okay, you can plug yourself in soon and forget about life.
>my car broke!

And you would have more money if you also do it in the first place? What's your point?
yeah fakin shit cunts m8.
>134 USD shipping
in what fucking universe?
Neither of those are relevant to my country actually.
>cars have to be checked and pass a tight quality check every 2 years
>healthcare is free
I'm thinking more in the lines of my job being cut off, company going down, I decide to move across the country. I can live comfortably for 2 months without a job while I search for a new one.
Also, for example dentists are expensive as fuck here, and I need my yearly checkup. Instead of losing out on some luxury that month, I take money from my buffer and slowly fill it back up the following months.
I'm also able to help a dear family member in need. There's not a lot of people I'd loan money to, but if one of my brothers were in trouble, I'd be able to help. The 3 of us are really close, and I know he'd pay me back. I've helped both of them out of a pinch before, because I'm the best of us at handling my money, and they paid me back within 6 months.
Pretty much how I see it as well. People try to shill it and compare it to a nice display, which is fine and all, but I know I can use the display for long periods of time and actually do things on it.
I see VR as something I could use a few hours a week if it isn't a cheap gimmick. Which isn't a great value for $599 + taxes + shipping + Touch controller a few months down the road (likely $150 + taxes + shipping).
I'm not saying you shouldn't spend money just to save money. Hell, you don't even need to save like $500 in one go, just start small.
If you do need to spend money for gym and checkups, spend it. It wouldn't be that expensive. Save the rest
Why spend money for things you /actually/ don't need is what I'm confused at. If you don't trust bank, buy a safe
>Video games are good but give them 10 years or so!
>Yeah self driving cars are okay, but give them 10 years

>There are actually richfags glad to spend $600 in fluff
>There are people happy to spend blindly money in accessories with no future
It is Ouya all over again. It is going to flop hard. Just like the 3D television Sony wanted to shove in your throat.
It will be a magnificent trainwreck. I can't wait.
>mfw I'll be able the join the VR master race from day 1
When it has an actual catalog of working games, Ill consider it. Not even a blip on the radar for me at the moment, but the potential is there. People buying this immediately are the same people who probably though Plasytation eye was going to be a big thing and rushed to buy one, only find it sat on the shelf from day one onward because there was no actually content that made use of it.

Look, if you don't like the bundled crap, you can just sell it for a profit. Oculus are doing you a favorite, its an amazing deal.

Because inflation is the same everywhere in the world.
Keep believing your keynesian shit you fucking retard, you are the reason I don't give shit to hobos.
RIP in piss the Rift, I suppose.
For Arma 3, TrackIR did this shit already. VR only adds "immersion" by doing the same thing but slapping a high quality monitor close to your eyes. Does nothing to the gameplay, just binds look to head tracking.
I am all up for games made FOR VR, like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uEnUIGiPeO
with a controller FOR VR Games. Not a god damn keyboard+mouse or a fucking typical gamepad.

But oh wait, its a crisis. Nobody is buying a fucking forest. And its price is lower than ever.
You threw away your money.
>sell a bunch of shitty fucking controllers NOBODY wants
>SELL IT FOR PROFIT IF YOU DON'T WANT IT!
I have 6 years old rig, that barely runs Witcher 3 on Ultra settings. Gaming just hasn't gone up enough for me to upgrade. VR is the only reason to get new GPU and maybe CPU. So my options are either enjoying all games as before, or spend $1100+ to have a rollercoaster at my house. Not only is it expensive, but there is no necessity for it. Or useability. Its not a new TV or new phone. I'll try it once or twice and then leave it to dust.
But it will sell. PS4 has been selling with no games for 2 years now. Shitposting will move the stocks as before.
Just like I starved in 2007 and 08, right?
Delusional normie. Spend spend spend spend, who cares about future! Spend!
I'm one of the few people where it's different. I would spend whatever it was. Gamers are not known to be the most affluent population of people. If something's even $600, it doesn't matter how good it is, how great of an experience it is - if they just can't afford it, then it really might as well not exist. We're going for the mainstream, but time will tell what the market is.
Not him but why not when you can cancel it at any time? Orders are now backed to June so now there's a chance that I can resell my order that's in April for more after playing with it for a week and getting bored with it.
I'd be happy to pay 600 dollars but down here in shitposting land, it's 1100 dollarydoos. Stop fucking whining.
$600 would be acceptable if they actually had games, but they only have 5 or so and if you don't like space combat games you are left with nothing but Euro Truck and bunch of racing sims.
good goy keep racking up your debt, keep chasing that dragon.
Good job Shalom, keep saving up that jewgold, spending and happiness is for the goym.
>There are people who payed $599 USD on a 1st generation VR headset rather then waiting for the second generation to have improved EVERYTHING about them
It is though, I grow my own food and save tons. Only food I typically buy now is shit like junk food, meat, milk etc. Never had to buy eggs, potatoes, carrots etc in years.
So long as you're not a borderline retard and have a good area to plant in, its worth growing your own food.
>Half my life
You really over estimate how much time needs to be put in
>A few dollars
And you really, really under estimate how much money it saves.
Then again, I doubt you've ever picked up a shovel in your life.
>all the vive needs to do is not price itself out the ass
I feel like Oculus shot themselves in the foot with this announcement. Not only are they selling it for a price that they literally said they'd never sell it for, that's just pretty costly in general. All the Vive needs to do is be less than or equal to that price, which doesn't seem like that hard of a task.
I've helped with the garden from 1996 to 2006. Its not worthwhile. Its too much work, for not much saving. Never doing it again. Waste of time and placebo for the simpleton's soul.
Valve don't need to profit out the shitter like Oculus does, they will be happy to get VR into peoples hands so they can make money via steam when people buy VR games.
Oculus doesn't have that luxury, which is why they've priced their shit so high, and why the controllers are not included.
>HL1 was GOTYAY because it introduced cinematic scripted FPS
>HL2 was GOTYAY because it introduced physics driven FPS
>HL3 will be GOAYAY because it introduced VR driven FPS
Valve is banking in on the VR thing too.
>What is the Oculus store
A place that barely anyone will use compared to steam. Don't be a retard, you can't compare the two. That'd be like saying EA could sell some headset at a loss because of origin, despite nobody using that shit if they can help it. In fact, its much worse than that.
A lot of people who buy an Oculus won't even give the store a second look, if they even know about it. Everyone knows about steam though.
Oh, and couple that with steam link. So you can VR in your living room if your PC is elsewhere. Face it, Valve can sell at a loss and not be nearly as fucked as Oculus would be.
On one hand, I don't see $600 at totally unresonable. I know what all the components in there must have cost.
Two minature screens with a very low input lag (so no TV-tier tech) 1080p each, and at a high refresh rate (so no mainstream 60Hz tech) Shit is expensive, not accounting for everything else.
TL;DR it not expensive for what it is
On the other hand, I don't want to spend £500 on it, and I won't be getting one. I don't think I would get that much enjoyment out of it. Maybe if I was in the US and not getting fucked by import duties, but they've shot themselves in the other foot with that. Half the US customer base won't get it, and now 99% of the rest of the world won't.
>Does anyone ACTUALLY think this will 'revolutionize' anything?
Most people who actually tried it. The vast majority of haters havent the VR devkit or the prototypes on conventions.
>Don't be a retard, you can't compare the two
>a digital store
>vs a digital store
they are the same thing m8, and oculus already confirmed they will have store exclusives and are banking on that for most of the profit
>Oh, and couple that with steam link. So you can VR in your living room
>even beginning to think that a streamed display will work for vr
Horror games might actually be scary. That said though, I can emulate this effect by just sitting really close to my tv/monitor, turning off the lights and wearing headphones. Potential is there, its apex by any means.
>Oh, and couple that with steam link. So you can VR in your living room if your PC is elsewhere.
what is latency? if you manage to do that then you'd better have 911 on speed dial.
>Limiting a game that could make them literally billions of dollars to a DRM platform with no users and full of bugs
No way they'd ever tie Half Life and Counter Strike to Steam, that just wont work!

of course he's going to fucking acknowledge it, everyone is showing it in his face for being a lying fucking cuck. He'd look even worse of an asshole if he denied it, so it's impossible for him not to acknowledge it.
other than a tremendous difference in quality?
>did anyone seriously think porn would push blu ray?
it was a popular stance to take. i remember reading some piece on one of the big newspapers about how the makeup artists have to adjust to the quality shift and hiding pimples for example
>Maybe if I was in the US and not getting fucked by import duties, but they've shot themselves in the other foot with that.
Have they seriously not got some warehouses on various continents to ship from? No company in their right mind is going to ship a very expensive item aimed at a global audience from just the US. Willingly losing massive swathes of your (already pretty small) customer base to import duty price hikes is just goddamn retarded.
All eyes are on Vive now, shit's fucked.
If they can deliver the same price with non retard tier shipping cost bundled with motion controllers then shit will be goat.
Doubt that will happen however, best to wait for more manufacturers to enter the fray and release a good bang for buck option.
Of course, but that doesn't mean I'm going to run that risk, not when the Vive is far better tech anyway.
The only reason why anyone would be stupid enough to buy a Rift is if Valve decides to be stupid too and charge out the ass for it.
>when the Vive is far better tech anyway.
how can anyone say that right now?
We dont have details on either headset at the moment or what the release version of the vive will even be
it seems like people are just parroting rumors to the point of treating it as fact, since the only thing that we know for sure that the vive does better is room scale
>facebook, sony, htc and valve all going for it at the same time
>google sitting on the side
Are Google going to fuck up again, or did their Glass experiment teach them not to bank on this sci-fi tech thing?
>We dont have details on either headset at the moment
What the fuck are you talking about, both are being shown at CES. Vive has the better tech, it has had the better tech for fucking months and nothing has changed, for every improvement Oculus has made, Vive has made more.
I fail to see why they don't, but theres no evidence they do.
If I want to currently get one in the UK its about $725, plus the motion controllers, pushes the entire system probably above $1000.
I am looking forward to it too, anon. I think all bets are kind of off, though. I'm not holding my breath that HTC will suddenly be able to produce a product for a far lower cost.
>for every improvement Oculus has made, Vive has made more.
what, with only one model even being demo'd and not changed ever since its announcement?
The only ever new model JUST being announced recently and being given to exclusive devs?
seriosuly, what details do we have for the vive that show its better than the rift?
Or vice verca?
We dont have tech specs for either headset right now
what new games though?
I havnt seen anything substantial come out of a vive game yet outside of very specific demos.
The only thing I can think of is the hover junkers game, but that is also being ported for oculus with no loss in gameplay
>tfw no spaghetti filled press conference at E3 for Oculus.

it probobly didnt cost them anything to add
the cost of the controllers are quite small and microsoft sells them for a large premium
it seems most people are just pissed at the $600 price tag and are latching on to any possible excuse to complain
>, to boost the price and make more profit.
did you not see any other reason outside of muh jews?
its there to set a development standard for VR games on rift, so all devs can be sure that everyone with a rift has the same controller
>did you not see any other reason outside of muh jews?
Because its made by a company who is looking to make money, not friends. Don't be an idiot.
It comes with a controller because it costs them nothing, but gives them an excuse to raise the price.
It comes with a piece of shit little plastic remote that most people don't want, because its cheap to make and again can inflate the price.
It doesn't come with the touch controllers because those ARE wanted, so they'll sell them separately for more money.
>$1000 Emergency Room bill
Bill for what? Running your lorry into the building??
We already know what comes with the Vive. The sensors and the controllers. Even if it costs more you're at least only buying the shit you want, not baseless shit you dont need.
How about that nifty carrying case the Oculus comes in? Oh boy, sure do look forward to carrying that around.
So many underaged kids mad because their parents wont buy them an oculus rift.
Lmao 4chan is full of povos. Get a job $600 is fucking nothing if you actually have a decent job instead of being a 16 year old on 4chan
if im spending $500+ on a product I want it to come in proper packaging
a lack of carrying case would actually be a huge disappointment, so much so that I want the vive to come with one too
having a case to put your headset in when not in use will be a good thing
>We already know that the tracking system is superior to the Rift's
The latency with both is almost identical, and as said before
the vive only does room scale better, and even then the rift can do enough movement to allow basic roomscale games
plus the rift can do room scale just as well if you add one or two extra cameras
Why does /v/ want new technology to fail so much?
I got to try a demo of the Vive once, and the motion controllers they had with it were actually amazing. They are tracked the same way as the helmet (I believe), and they show up in the Steam interface as blue transparent objects. The tracking made the Wii and PS Move feel like absolute shit in comparison.
I can afford it but it's unnecessary
are there any good games for Oculus?
>$599 porn device
Still less expensive than actual girlfriend
Many of them grew up on the Xbox 360 that, thanks to its long lifespan, became a pillar of their identity.
This is the reason why you see threads about people pretending to like Halo, even on the Xbone, because they are idiot children who ONLY likes shit.
Minus all the racing/flying cockpit games, you have a true motion sickness game in Mirror's Edge and god damn Minecraft
Valve games are legit the best VR experiences, and that is only because people reworked the games for VR and dual motion controllers like the Oculus Touch or Vive things.
Receiver is probably also really good in VR.
thanks for testing vr for us pccucks
we'll get it on sale when all the kinks are worked out, good thing too because we're gonna be busy enjoying bloodborne for another few years
850+ in aud lol good luck facebook.
Coming from someone who tested the prototype.
the future of VR looks to be dead in the water as much as i like the concept it has no current selling points and is unappealing to me.
simulated reality in 50-100 years if the Ai don't turn in to artilects and wipe humanity.
>mfw I backed the kickstarter
>mfw I sold my dk1 on ebay for the same price I donated them
>mfw they are giving out cv1s to people like me for free
>in the end, I literally paid nothing and will get VR
>mfw /v/irgins called me retarded for ever trusting kickstarter saying I would get scammed
>mfw their face
>spend $600 on video games because you have $600
you're the poor kid here tbqh, just too poor and too much of a kid to realize it
>Those hoping for the Rift to come down in price quickly after launch may be unhappy to hear that Luckey thinks we're unlikely to see a "stripped down SKU" for this first-generation consumer product.
If they had been forthright from the start that they were aiming for a premium priced product backlash of this scale would not have happened.
Well Dk2 has shown that it is indeed possible to make a decent budget HMD in the $350~400 ballpark without going full retard.
Problem now is there is no one big enough targeting that budget range on PC. PSVR might the equivalent on that end however the PS4 is underpowered for it requiring too many corners to be cut in the games to achieve the desired performance.
Enjoy your shit-tier monitors, poorfag.
How do Amerifats fuck up so much? I've lived in America for a while and making money is so easy it's ridiculous. Everything is super cheap, too.
>Not buying overpriced products that have close to no real value in owning said product
>"Wow, you must be poor"
>Wait 6 months - 1 year until people realize there's not point in owning one
>get it used (probably twice) for 1/3 of the price
I can afford it, I just can't justify it. I have a DK2 and honestly... It's just not there yet. I can't say I had a single -good- gaming experience with VR. It was fun to fuck around with and go explore, it's great for demos / 3d video... But for games? If you've actually tried a VR headset you probably understand why this just isn't going to take off yet.
The headsets are still bulky and uncomfortable. 1080p is NOT good enough of a resolution for true immersion. 90fps getting more in the ballpark at least. Interfacing with menus etc is a major issue. Right now the only truly functional VR experiences are the simplest of games which have very little replay value. And well honestly, there's no VR experience out there (yet) that really pulls you in.
It's a new medium and it's going to be awhile before anything decent is made for it. It's a whole new craft that needs to be mastered by an industry that is so stuck in it's ways that it can only rehash Asscreed for the 15th time.
I'd say the only viable games for VR are racing/flight right now. So yeah, TLDR: I just don't think the Rift is worth the money yet. The next gen of HMDs will be a much better experience and there might be some content for it by then. Other than fucking Miku porn which I can already enjoy with my DK2.
I'm honestly thinking PSVR is the better bet. Oculus isn't gonna have shit for content, no thought out method of interfacing -still-... And $600? For what? Why do I need your shitty controller and garbage tier games? The HMD itself is worth maybe $350~400. I was hyped about VR a couple years ago. But nothing new is being done as far as actual games. Nothing has been solved to make this a realistic platform yet.
>the original backers paid 200-300 for it
>they will get a consumer version for free
he is right, somehow...
if you come late to the party, dont complain when you cant find something to drink.
Oh sweet, a hd remaster of one of the best survival horror games on pc. Hopefully this will end my silent hills erection
>Fucking QTE Shit
Oculus has been an open platform for years now. What have we seen come from it? Nothing anyone actually gives a shit about.
I believe Sony has more of a vested interest to make it work for gamers, where as Oculus doesn't really give a shit about games since facebook came into it. They're going to let big companies find a use for it. I don't for see any long-term gaming support coming from oculus based on what we've seen thus far.
>yfw buying two HMDs that do basically the same thing and wonderbook/Move 2.0
>mfw /v/ complaining about $599
I always forget you people dont work.
>stupid cucks who backed kickstarter get a free oculus even though they would have bought it anyway
>potential new adopters get scared away by the hefty pricetag
fucking epic business tactics there cuckulous
>tfw it cost $599 and plus tax which will be $999 total. Not going to buy that shit. I would even need to buy a new PC just for it. Just not worth it. Better to wait for Vive.
The fact that it's $600 isn't even the biggest issue, you're failing to mention the minimum system specs which basically require you to throw away that rig you built in 2014 if you want to play games with the Rift without vomiting.
I told my mother to fuck off and thanked her for raising a dead brother and me and left her to rot. Simple really, the fact she drained me more then she raised was the tipping point.
why is it console folks think PCs cost $1500? Ever time I come here they up the price too. Just because you could spend $1500 on a PC doesnt mean you should.
Its like if everytime someone asked you how much a car cost you said $250,000 dollars because thats how much a lamborghini costs.
