First time it's had a reduction since release... same price in John Lewis now as well.

Custom Display and Optics: Rift uses custom display and optics technology designed specifically for VR, featuring two AMOLED displays with low-persistence. The technology enables incredible visual clarity as you explore virtual worlds.
Tracking System: The headset is tracked by our IR emitter constellation tracking system for precise, low latency 360-degree orientation and position tracking. The tracking system is designed to track you whether you're sitting down or standing up.
Integrated VR Audio: Rift features an integrated VR audio system designed to convince you that you're truly there. The integrated headphones are removable in case you want to use your own. There is also a high-quality internal microphone for social experiences.
Ergonomics and Design: The advanced ergonomic design improves the headset's overall balance and stability. The strap architecture offloads the overall weight, allowing the headset to rest comfortably.
Includes Oculus Rift headset with built-in headphones and mic, sensor, remote, Xbox One Wireless Controller, Lucky's Tale cables.

True, but it now works out £688.00 for the Rift + Touch controllers, which is cheaper than the Vive, which comes in at £759.00.

I think its definitely considerable now.

...as long as you have a decent gaming rig.

I wish I was rich!

I still have no idea what these do as they're still too expensive for me. Just finished building my PC which took over a year and about £600. By the time I get round to one of these, I'll probably need to spend money on a new PC.

Apart from giving you a sore neck and if you're really unlucky motion sickness then they don't really do anything apart from giving a better in game experience for certain games (mainly cockpit based games like Elite)

There's not nearly a big enough games library right now beyond the token repetitive tech demo games for it to be worth the money, not to mention if you've got a decent set of headphones you're basically stumped between choosing for better audio or better visual experience as the head band is restrictive (same applies if you happen to wear glasses)

In maybe another 3 or 4 years and when the price drops to a more reasonable couple of hundred £'s (IF it ever gets to that stage) the VR scene will be worthwhile entering but right now it's nothing more than an overpriced and overhyped fad

i have had both kept none the rift touch controllers are better and headset is better to use less weight

Was very interested in VR before the release, when they were rumoured to cost around the £300 mark.
But being priced what they are now, I can't justify myself in purchasing 1. As I know I only wanted to experience it, as there's not really game on it I will play for the long run.

I thought as much. I've only just got into PC gaming which is crazy as at 32 I've been gaming for nearly 30 years, starting with Spectrum, C64 etc. It was just annoying me the cost of graphics cards. I finally took the plunge and built a PC minus the graphics card as it was still niggling at me :D . I finally bought an MSI gaming 1060 a few weeks ago. I'm still not getting the full experience as I'm using a 720 monitor, have 4gb ram and a 4170 and have only three games, FIFA 17, Shadow of Mordor and GTA IV. It's a start.

VR, although something I'm really interested in will be a few years down the line for me.

I second that, no point buying one just now in that price range. I you really hyped try first one of those cheap vr headsets on Amazon and see if you would like it.

£1 less than what I paid at launch..I myself am hooked on VR. iRacing, Assetto Corsa, Project Cars, Race Room Racing Experience, You may notice a theme in the games I use the rift. Plus Elite Dangerous, DCS and Aero Fly 2. Oh and Google earth aint half bad either. Dont buy if your into shooters. I use the rift in palace of my triple monitors
#12
Vr is still not good enough for me yet. Needs more content before I will invest. Plus the costs are still very high for a decent setup.
#13
Have you tried GTA V? I believe the experience isn't 100% and it needs to be bodged to make it work.

Xbox for perverts. Voted hot.

This is a good price for those that want it. VR is for early adopters right now. People with more money than sense. Hopefully in a few years they will be more affordable and every game will be compatible without the need for special editions. Then I will be all in. Would love to play alien isolation in VR.

Not tried GTAV, as its first person and this type of game is really not suitable in my opinion for VR. Best games are Driving, Flying. Roller coaster type games and Google earth.

Interesting racing features quite heavily online in GTA V and you can now drive cars in first person view. .Rockstar has also modeled the interiors of the cars and you can also change interiors. I agree though, I think the game needs to be made for VR at the time of coding, rather than patched together later on.
