>>52260633
I would love to believe, but naw, man, it's 400 at minimum. Palmer's gone on record saying it'll be more expensive than a DK2, which was 350, and he's also been preparing people for a higher than expected price point regardless.

The figure he's been throwing out is ~1500 for a full desktop plus a Rift, so 4-500 is the likely range.

Nah, even that is unlikely. Remember the Tron quote he tweeted and how that turned out to be nothing even though everyone thought it meant something.

Just because he reveals stuff on twitter doesn't mean every single thing he says is implying an announcement or something.

Probably just a "and it's ships today!" since he mentioned how many they were stockpiling.

Yeah I don't follow him or anything so I wouldn't know, but judging by how they recently announced that kickstarter backers get a free rift and now there's "one more thing" it could actually be something... Or not

For real, though, what could Palmer possibly have left to reveal?
We already know:
>Global preorders in 20+ countries
>EVE with preorder
>Lucky's Tale with every Rift
>Preordering Rift gives you priority in preordering Touch
>All people who backed the KS and got a DK1 also get a special CV1
>No lock-ins for preorders

All they really have left to announce is a release date and price, and one would think both of those things would be announced when the preorders go up.

This has got to be something else. either that or he's just fucking with us, which wouldn't be surprising

if you had a proper loop going, not very long at all
If it really were a "long video", then you'd have to do a lot of guesswork.
Full frame uncompressed video would be real easy 'cause you just need to know the resolution and the length.

Compressed video is hard.
First you'd have to know Youtube's compression settings. For example, if YouTube used VBR to estimate a target filesize for a video of a certain length of time, you could estimate to a degree of +/-10% of the filesize given H.264.

If they use CRF to target a specific quality then you can't really guess except by making a statistical model of filesizes of videos of similar color variation.

Specswise they're almost identical. It's mainly supported games at this point. Vive focuses more on room-scale VR, but Rift supports it as well. Vive will be packaged with the wand controllers, whereas Oculus is selling them separately.

Rift has more games and money behind it, though.

It's not possible to develop on one runtime for multiple devices - there's no standard for VR yet. The tech hasn't even hit market.

As of now, devs are, for the most part, working on the headset from the company that gave them funding. Neither company is making devs sign exclusivity contracts, it's just hard to develop for several different headsets/environments at once, and if one company gave you a bunch of devkits and cash, it's much easier to build games for that platform.

They're actually playing pretty nice, for the time being. Elite:Dangerous is one of the few games I can think of off the top of my head that supports both headsets, but it's spotty for the Rift, as they don't support the latest runtime. Altspace supports everything under the sun, though, which is cool.

What the hell is going on with all this HTC shilling.

We don't know prices of any of these devices, they have the same specs and the only confirmed difference so far are dedicated controllers and some sensors. We still don't know which device perform better at all.
Both Oculus store and Steam doesn't allow porn.
Both Oculus and HTC teams work together with game developers.

It's way to early to determine which is better, stop acting like retards.

>oculus blocks porn and is owned by facebook
the oculus STORE doesn't allow porn, the rift itself can run any executable (yes, even torrented shit.) and facebook has done nothing other than secure shipping, server time, and give funding.

>wand controllers are not included
90% of the games made for the rift so far are made for xbox controllers (this has been the standard since the DK1). You don't need the Touch controllers for presence.

>Facebook only contacted the devs of farmville so far
nope, oculus has over 20 exclusives prepared for launch.

>advertisement feature
have you considered the fact that's bullshit

>>52263656
this. the SDK of the two devices are massively different, to the point where the same game couldn't run on the two devices without optimization on the devs part.

if the dev is being paid by oculus to develop for the rift, why are they going to make a game for the competition too?

>>52263754
if you actually bothered to research the tech before using it (although what can i expect with >/g/) you'd know this

my bets are on SteamVR having better support so uhh..yeah

also Valve have been developing Source2 for a while now so I'm guessing they're going to have some games to go along with it. Most likely not exclusive because that's not the kind of company Valve is, but idk I'm just under the assumption that SteamVR will have better game compatibility since Steam dominates. Mods to get non-VR games on the device will probably be more common with SteamVR too

idk I don't need to justify this shit I just rather support them than Oculus, but I'm excited for VR so I could go either way really.

does this mean that if i get the consumer version, i wont be able to run the demos that the dk2 ran?

example; that roller coaster you can see everyone and their mother experiencing on youtube?
>>
>>52264039
yes and you will most likely want to get at least a 980 or 980 ti. vr has a ~3K resolution, do the math. the 970 is a 1080p card, not a 3K card.
if you can't afford a 980, you can't afford vr anyway.
>>
>>52264073
well people will make those demos for both headsets so does it really matter?
>>
>>52264069
there would never be a way that a half life as we know it gets into vr. the gameplay would be solely of a different kind and you'd mostly be a spectator
>>
>>52264099
>do the math

you know that most current vr games are optimised to run fluid on a 750ti?
>>
>>52264073
The SDK has actually advanced since then (Back then, that demo was on 0.4, now it's 1.0), so most likely you'll have trouble using it unless the SDK's been updated.

Most devs update their SDK version though, since it's mostly just a matter of loading the new SDK in and recompiling.

>>52264039
Yes. If you have a shitty GPU (670 is far below recommended specs) you'll get framedrops, extreme usage of timewarp, and overall shitty performance.

I'd recommend a 970 or 390 honestly.

>>52264107
A lot may not actually, it's hard as fuck to optimize for 2 seperate platforms at once with VR.

>>52264099
the 970 is recommended by Oculus (as in every app on the Oculus Store WILL be playable on that card, no exceptions) but some devs are going higher.

>>52264126
Wrong, that card simply does not have the power to run VR well.
>>
>>52264069
their first release will most likely be Left 4 Dead 3 since that's what's been leaked along with Source 2 some time ago
>>
>>52264099
Well, that's not necessarily true. Oculus' reccomended spec is a 970, so most, if not all, games are optimized to run well on that card.

>>52264367
Not any of the anons here, but to add to this discussion, the saying "have you tried VR" that's gets thrown around so much is really not sufficient. That is, "VR" could be anything. You really need to have tried a specific kind of VR that ran properly on modern hardware with the right software and right calibration. If any one of those things is just short of perfect, then there's probably a problem. It's the reason why actually a lot of people haven't had great impressions of the dev kits.

Instead of that, I'd come up with a better argument that targets scientific proofs with objective evidence readily linked and properly referenced.

I don't do that with just any schmuck on the internet though. For those kinds of people, I just ignore or shitpost, like any regular anon.

Oculus dev edition and a handful of those indie demos (and SAO) that came out.

It was cool playing with it for like half an hour until I realized I had no use for it.
It's a useless gimmick. It's kinect but with a computer screen on your face.
It offers nothing meaningful in the way of control systems because there isn't a person alive that actually likes contorting their hand into a gun or waving their arms around after having done it, and it doesn't come with a physical control method that trumps existing control methods (and if it did, why not just sell that on its own?).
In most cases you'll still be hunched over mouse and keyboard anyway.
In the case of porn what's the point? It'll become stale in a week tops. Unless you have the whole setup with the Japanese sex robots and fleshlights (and likely with the setup) you'll take the aspergers helmet off and start beating off to what's on your monitor because you'll get the same reaction from it.

I would't trust those journalists.

Also the same people who adhere to principals of click bait titles. Wait for someone credible to actually do a comparison, like fucking real users, or actually specialized niche reporters like Upload VR or Road To VR.

I'm just glad that VR is finally giving us a real use for dual-GPU setups other than GPGPU performance.

There's no microstutter when you have each GPU drive one eye. I would worry about slight desync, though, if one GPU finishes a frame significantly before the other you'd need to make sure they didn't update independently otherwise you could have, say, a bullet flying past your face in two different places.

>>52265926

Because it breaks immersion and lowers customer engagement?

They'll be ads in the store, for store content, and Facebook apps in the Oculus store for social games and communication platforms. There will be advertising in those, but it will take the form of native content and not intrusive interstitial ads.

Lowering engagement is probably the worst idea for an advertiser, so you'll never see any content that does it.
>>
>>52266072
Because it would lead to less sales. There's no way they have forced ads. There would be outrage. You may see ads in some programs, but if so it will be because the individual developers put them there, not because of Facebook.

This is true. Let me tell you a story.

When I got my dev kit 1 there wasn't a lot out there to use it for. One of the few things was just a version of google street view to demo webGL and vr.js. So I put the oculus on my friend's head and asked where he wanted to go. He gave me an address in Ukraine where he was born and as soon as I hit enter he lit up. He started pointing around the room and telling me about places from his childhood and didn't stop for like 20 minutes.

We were doing this in a classroom after hours where other people were working on stuff and eventually everyone gathered around just to hear him talk and also because they had places they want to visit too. I ended up spending hours there sending people to locations from their past and just listening to them talk about them with such wonder.

It was honestly the (second) most unique and powerful experience I have ever had because of a piece of technology.

And that was the fucking DK1.

People have already paid for their rifts through kickstarter and pre-orders. You can't get a refund, why would they care if you don't like it?

Adverts lower immersion in TV and streaming services, but they're there too and people still pay astonishing amounts of money for them.

It's not about the existing customers, it's about the number of future customers, which will drastically fall if forced ads are introduced. It would be corporate suicide. Say what you want about Facebook, but they aren't stupid, they wouldn't throw the billions they paid for Oculus out the window.

A 360-degree video for some company or product before your content plays, or an interactive demo of some product or service rendered in VR that keeps you from playing your content, or popup-type ads embedded in your content that target you as a user and not your avatar.

Everyone is freaking out over the fact that they were acquired by Facebook and that they filed the "nod to dismiss ad" patent. I think that any of the options I outlined are ridiculous and never going to happen because they're so user-unfriendly that they would ruin VR for a lot of people.

Yeah this. "Immersion" is basically a buzzword right now because it hasn't had any real meaning until VR.

SQT VR Edition:

What about motion sickness?

I bought Cardboard for 2 bucks and while playing AaaAAaaaA for Cardboard I get motion sick. That is largely due to the shit latency, precision, framerate and resolution of a smartphone though.

I get that motion tracking latency has been reduced during development. but motion sickness is caused when the visual input signals motion while the cochlear organ doesn't. Even with a perfect HMD, people will get motion sick for this reason since you can't emulate movement in the cochlea.

I get motion sick sometimes when driving and reading. Would the Rift be a problem for me?

Yes absolutely it will be a problem. Probably a big one.

You're just going to have to smoke weed every day.

They have a better tracking system but the oculus touch ones look more comfy.

Trackpad is better than analog stick since it has 4 buttons and can be used for typing on a virtual keyboard split in half quicker or moving a mouse cursor if need be.

But oculus touch looks more compact and ergonomic with the ability to detect when you point your finger or lift your thumb from the analog stick which would be cool for social interaction or certain game play elements.

Leaning more towards touch, but now that vive controllers are more compact than they were before they seem like a decent option.

Vive has a camera, and a sweeping laser grid. This is enough to use it as a 3d scanner. I've noticed that EVERY video showing the chaperon system doesn't show what it looks like. I think there's still a media blackout/embargo on that till they make the big announcement that Vive will function as a full room 3D scanner. If it's true, then every object in your room can be scanned, mapped, skinned, and used as a prop inside a video game. THIS IS HUGE! Until CES is completely over I'll be waiting with baited breath.

>1500$ Desktop

>On the raw rendering costs: a traditional 1080p game at 60Hz requires 124 million shaded pixels per second. In contrast, the Rift runs at 2160×1200 at 90Hz split over dual displays, consuming 233 million pixels per second. At the default eye-target scale, the Rift’s rendering requirements go much higher: around 400 million shaded pixels per second. This means that by raw rendering costs alone, a VR game will require approximately 3x the GPU power of 1080p rendering.

So in short, you'll need a continuous framerate of 90 fps on what is essentially 2 monitors of 1080x1200 resolution (or as they claim: 3x the GPU power of 1080p). This will be much more costly in the long run than 1500$ for the "gaming enthousiasts" that want to see their games in full detail.

I suspect the reason they're reluctant to show it is because it is a relatively new breakthrough and probably don't have a polished demo to show off. But the hardware is there now.

Having used an actual professional 3D scanner from Leiko, it's not as simple as "walking around with something like the Vive and automatically scan everything in your environment.". You'll need to calibrate fixation points and you may not move your scanner during the scanning proces (which takes a couple minutes). You're left with a set of millions of datapoints which afterwards you'll have to convert and correct into a proper polygonal model. So yeah, keep on dreaming on Vive being a 3D camera...

/g/ i need your wisdom, i only have a 970m msi gs70 laptop atm and have heard that optimus shit causes serious latency issues with rifts/vives because it runs the frame buffer or some shit through the laptops integrated intel hd4000 before it is output through the dedicated nvidia.

Is there a way to fix this with a rift, i can only find one post about it on oculuses website.

in the long run it doesnt matter as im planning on building a 980ti at minimum desktop asap, but i didnt expect the rift before march so my plan was to just pre order one and fiddle with it on my high end laptop till i can build/buy a dedicated vr desktop in like 3 months.

money is just tight right now just after christmas to spend 2k on a rift and gaming pc, but its looking like even my laptop wont run it properly anyhow, not really because of a lack of power but because of weird hardware oddities of laptops.

fuckin first world problems kek.

599 is too steep for me
>>
>>52270302

yeah i know, it was just a stopgap.

the issue is it probably wont work at all, not because it cant render 90hz, but because some stupid motherboard design shit fucks with latency at the mobo/gpu end.

i would have been happy to drop games down to medium settings to get those extra frames, and thats possible but the latency with anything intel optimus is fucked apparently

the laptop is fine for 1080p gaming on pretty much everything at high 50-60fps, witcher/gta5/ed/mgs 5/fc3

i expected it to at least run rift shit at 60fps 1080p medium graphics

guess im going to have to drop 2 grand in march/april on a 980ti system which seems like a bad idea with the smaller nm sizes due soon.

means another 6 months waiting for vr probably.

Well Vive is also going to come with controllers which oculus doesn't include and won't have until the second half of the year. It also has the camera features that allow visual overlays of your keyboard or wheel or joystick etc and also allows you to walk around in your room. I can't imagine it will cost way more than rift plus the additional controllers you have to buy.

They said Linux development will resume after the CV1 release, they just had to focus on Windows right now to get CV1 out and properly supported under at least one OS.

It'd hardly matter compared to a $700 rift.
>>
>>52271627
Actually, Rift is $599 in the US faggot. Vive is going to be expensive as shit. Everyone else gets fucked with the Rift still, but that's going to be no different for the Vive.

They're Microsoft's bitch now. Upgrade to Win10 goyim.

>>52271627
not even that.

the oculus touch + additional sensory equipment would easily dethrone the vive yet again

They never said the Rift couldn't be $600.

>i was told consumer VR would be cheap as fuck on the 1. generation because they'd do compromises

no, the rift is without any compromises. it's the most high-end gadget you can now get in the vr world

man I can't wait for the Valve drones to get assblasted when the price is revealed.

>>52271465
how much could two screens and some lenses possibly cost?
>>
>>52271674
They also said they really wanted the price to stay in the 300-400 range. They also said the facebook partnership would keep prices down and they also said that buying a new PC ready for VR and a Rift would cost around $1500.

>>52271692
this would take atleast 2 years for the chinese assembly plants to recreate the 700$ rift at a profit without compromises on the tech itself.

currently you can only get a DK1 ripoff and some self proclaimed vr enablers for above 450$ which is about DK2 level

Where is sticky?

That's true though.

You can get a VR-ready prebuilt for about $1200.

No, I know better than that dumb fucking goyim trying to excuse what facebook's doing as anything other than jewing.

That's the point, people where happy at the idea of paying more for the vive, now there's hardly a difference.

REMEMBER YOU WILL STILL HAVE TO SPEND ANOTHER $200 DOLLARYDOOS ON THE TOUCHWAND CONTROLLER THINGS.

>ANOTHER $200

ONTOP OF MONEY FOR THE ACTUAL CONTENT FOR IT.

Its consoles all over again. Please let OpenVR take off more than this controlling jew shit

Is there an updated list of games that currently work with Oculus?

Trying to see what content I'll have out of the box, without paying for addition software and whatnot.
