Anyone get theirs yet? I read something about Oculus locking down the software for the Rift so that you can only run games on it through their storefront and the games on their storefront will only work on the Rift, which sounds improbably stupid, but Facebook does own them now. If true, that may be smart in the long run assuming they can build a large enough customer base to be the VR version of the Apple App Store when they branch off in to non-gaming applications, but I doubt they'll survive long enough to get there if so.

Pretty strong rumors that the Xbox 1.5 / 2.0 / 'Scorpio' will be Rift-compatible (not just theater mode) and coming in 2017.

*edit* I just saw that E3's official site has added an 'Xbox One VR' filter for companies registering their games. Several have registered using the filter.

Yeah interesting to see how this plays out. Seems crazy to announce a new console that won't be available for another 18 months. But maybe the main goal is to (as above) dampen interest in PSVR / Neo+Morpheus.

Question answered.. Maybe.

This potential for the new Xbox takes away the possibility of me looking at a ps4/gaming pc for a bit.

Exactly what M$ are looking to do I imagine.

My rift finally arrived and it is awesome!

Did the dreamdeck and 'introduction to virtual reality'-demos and got blown away, but what really did it was firing up Elite: Dangerous. The thing is huge! I just sat there gaping for minutes as I was looking around the "actual size" cockpit I was sitting in and looking out over the desolate planet I landed on before I logged out last.

Then, I got up and actually walked around that cockpit... standing at the windows gazing out. And the detail everywhere is insane - didn't think there'd be textures and details where you can't see when playing the game non-vr, but walking around the cockpit it's just like being there with everything textured and detailed.

Then docking at a station is mindblowing - the size and details and the responsiveness of your ship (or at least the feel of it) is a completely different game to non-VR E: D.

Turning/rotating when big objects (planets, space stations) is in view is pretty dizzying and will need some practice before I can do a lot of it though - got really disorienting and while I didn't get nauseous I probably would have if I'd done a lot of it.

Really only noticed the limited FOV when I was paying attention to it - "god-rays" were quite noticeable on occasion, but mainly noticed it when the background was very black and white text or white objects were displayed (typically intro-screens/credits for movies/demos).

The 'fuzziness' and lack of sharpness in text and some other stuff compared to a monitor was the most noticeable issue - it can be worked around for stuff that is designed for VR, but is an issue for some of the stuff that isn't. Still it's a small price to pay for the pure awesomeness of everything else

Yeah Elite is incredible. The sense of scale is mindblowing. Dogfights are amazing in VR. It's like a completely different game. I bought the lifetime expansion pass almost immediately after playing it for the first time on my DK2. Based on the support I've seen so far and the expansions they have planned, I'm really glad I did. It seems to be a real passion project for Braben.

TLDR: 1060M is the desktop version with lower clock and faster than GTX 970, in other words, VR ready. 960M laptops are entry level "gaming" laptops selling for under 800 or GPU of choice for high end "ultra" books like XPS 15.

I think we're at the threshold. Within 12 months, probably sooner, we'll have piles of VR ready laptops priced for the main stream.

Anyone tried Damaged Core ?

It's being hailed as a must-have for VR and it looks pretty good. Will probably pick it up this weekend.

what's going on with VR?? I was very excited to hear about the Rift etc, but it seems to have died off a bit..

Is it just due to it being out of reach for the mainstream at the moment?

Or is the experience itself not living up to expectations??

The cost is just too high for most people to even "try." You need an appointment to even get a demo at BestBuy. The all in cost for non-enthusiasts are still close to 2k, at least 1.5k even with purpose built cheap desktops. You really need to get that down to about 1000 for mass market viability. There are also still lingering bugs to work out. The experience however is phenomenal even for non-gamers.



That said, I think the next generation of HMD (figure two or three years) will be mass market with the headsets themselves costing 300 or 400 dollars and the VR capable computers under 1000. At least, there will be a large library of VR pornography by then.

VR "capable" laptop for $1339: https://www.amazon.com/Notebook-i7-6...ds=1060+laptop They'll undoubtedly get cheaper in the next six months as AMD releases its mobile chips.

The next gen mobile chips will be even cheaper and more powerful. Then we'll probably be in the mass market consumer price range. Even if one product cycle is not enough, in two product cycles (figure five years), we're talking about onboard graphics being good enough for at least some VR applications (such as watching porn), even in a mobile form factor. Then the cost of entry to VR is just the 300-400 or whatever for a VR headset for everyone with a laptop.

Oculus managed to stuff up the launch surely killing a great deal of hype.

PSVR is out in ~6 weeks, which should bring a ton of hype, make VR way more accessible than it is now (+comfort, +ease of use, possibly $750 all-in cost of entry) and re-invigorate interest in the PC scene too. Basically everything in Grizy's post but this holiday season rather than a few years.

There's a lot of general VR chatter in here, yes it's titled rift but there's vive and psvr discussion as well.

Don't be such a butthurt ****tard.

VR just isn't accessible enough for it to be completely mainstream yet. It's still going to take a few years, if ever.

A lot of people try it and love it but still have no intention of ever buying one.

So "Never heard of this lol-rift-thing you're talking about, errybody's playing this awesome game that can't be played with the rift instead" qualifies as 'general VR chatter' and a good response to my question?

I don't mind PSVR or Vive talk here - I do mind completely pointless replies that does nothing but waste everybodys time.

Anyone considering a PSVR should just keep these things in mind.

Eye Toy
UMD
PSX(not PS1)
PS Move
Playstation TV
PS Vita
Playstation Home
3D gaming
PSP Go
Wonderbook
Playstation Phone

I'd like to stay optimistic but Sony's history isn't great.

Heh. I've demoed PSVR. It will do just fine. I'm looking forward to RIGS and Driveclub most, I think.

All that list tells me is that PSVR will have a decent launch library. It doesn't tell me how well it sell, if it will continue to sell or if it will have enough retention for Sony to support it for longer than a couple years. Sony supported most of the things I listed pretty hard during their early days but it didn't matter when the install base stopped buying software. They weren't bad products either.

I'm not saying it's a lock but I wouldn't be diving into a PSVR at launch unless you're absolutely desperate or can easily afford it.
