£399, a steal at that price, i got it in the summer sale at that price with Rift headset, 2 touch controllers, two sensors, rift remote control, xbox one joypad and wireless pc dongles and 7 games, along with all the free stuff that is already on the rift store, and i was VR sleptic until i tried it, and i was totally won over, Elite in VR is simply a old nerds elite Amstrad cpc464 dream come true.

VR is here to stay, big time.

They go down in the price in the usa really quick. Their tax is only 8%. Some States can get tax free.

Yeah, it is rip off/corrupt Britain, they blame it on Brexit, we haven't even left yet.
20% vat is big rip off.

The tax on petrol, tobacco and alcohol.

Keyboard I neary bought is about 79.00 in the usa.
uk 130.00

Look at Mars Celebrations 680grams.

Mean while on Planet Earth.
Children in Need is back on tv.
The Queen (it's not the 16th Century) could give a billion away, she will not be around much longer so why don't she dig deep in her pockets.

We tax payers fund their life style even though they don't need it.

Look at all the money Bill Gates gives away.

We live in a crap Country.
How much did the tory Government spend on evil thatcher's funeral?

In Australia they can import $1000 worth of goods from say, China, We get taxed on 30.00.

£299 by xmas?

What was the event today buddy?

You'd have to be crazy to buy this now with the mixed reality sets coming next week.

Agreed wait for the reviews of the mixed reality sets before buying. This is a permanent price drop I believe so there is not hurry to buy one.

Great kit, I tried it out recently and was quite amazed at it... can't wait for it to be even cheaper and hopefully requring less damanding PC hardware as I don't really want to get a gaming PC to run this, which I believe is needed?

What games would people recommend for VR? Tried the Occulus recently and wasn't overly impressed with the ones I played (some rollercoaster game and a "scary" demon child in a room).
Edited by: "esskay92" 11th Oct

They said that about 3D tvs.
(only joking)

Can you do other stuff besides games?
Music concerts so you don't have to piss your pants/knickers if you are stuck in the middle of 50,000 people?

Being a fan of Sci Fi the possibilites look good for VR.

BioShock in 3D?

Play Robo Recall. If that doesn't impress you, then VR isn't for you.

Arizona sunshine(best zombie vr game to date)
Elite horizons(you are living in the future, in space, making a living)
Valk eve(welcome navigator)
Star trek bridge commander(space, the final frontier, and you are in it)
Robot recall(i robot, and you are will Smith)
Google vr(experience the beginning of how they will teach in the future)

These are some real vr, sitting in a cheap made rollercoster sim that was no doubt ported from mobile vr for phones is not real vr....you are missing so very much.

Meh $399 in USA doesn't equate to £399 but really tempted.

Check the website, It's also £399.... (this also includes Oculus.com/rift)

They have tax to be added, government and state tax

probably better to wait for mixed reality headset which is similar priced but higher resolution. and i think we can expect a vive/rift 2 by the end of next year

You have made absolutely no mention of the cost of living in the US. I know loads of people there in low paid jobs and they struggle to make their rent. Cant have a day off sick because they don't get paid for it and can get fired for practically nothing. I think maybe they would like a few more protections and would sacrifice some cheap goods.

I would definitely agree with this, only that we are gradually getting to a point where we will be having the USA job lawlessness and their public health chaos while at the same time keeping the extreme taxes of Europe. It's the worst of both worlds.

I’m gonna wait for this. I think this is the only way they’ll get it to a mass market. The vast majority of people aren’t going to get this when you have to also have a high spec PC.

It’s alright, I’ve barely used mine since I got it. The best game for me is robo recall

Being enjoying mine. Robo Recall is good also like defense grid. Kids enjoy watching Henry and Songs of the Sea.

Worth it if you have the spare cash and a good pc.

I wouldnt bother with Microsoft Mixed reality HMD (Head mounted display)'s with the Rift at this price.

The Mixed Reality headsets use inside out tracking which means no sensors.
No sensors sounds nice dosnt it? But it's not. nothing behind your head is tracked, so if you are in a game or experience that requeirs you to pull somthing from behind you (like an arrow from a quiver, or a sword) then this will be next to impossible.

Also your hands WONT be tracked unless they are in view of the front of the HMD itself.

The headset to look out for that is due to be released in janurary next year is the Pimax 5k. and the Pimax 8k
The pimax 8k will require a slightly higher specced PC but the pimax 5k will run on the same specs as an oculus rift will.

(I have had the vive and the rift for about 18 months now)


Just a heads up though, The rift will only really allow for 180degree gaming and SMALL room scale gaming straight out the box, If you have a large space (3 meters by 3 meters) that you wish to use then you will be required to buy a THIRD sensor, costing something like £60, along with TWO USB extention cables, and if your PC dosnt have enough USB ports then you will also need to buy a PCI USB Extention card.

A desperate stunt from Facebook, they should have announced a higher spec Rift with inside-out tracking to compete with the new headsets but instead they reveal a toy.

Didnt know that, i will still wait for review tho. tbh i dont really care about room tracking as long as the controller and head tracking works fine. having tried PSVR which is similar resolution to vive/rift, i cant justify buying it even at £400 due to low resolution

I think that the mixed reality headsets have a lower FOV than the rift?

£399.99 is the normal price now

A couple things to consider.... Oculus made some more announcements, which may influence your purchase decision.


- Oculus announced a revised "Dash" which hopefully significantly improves the functionality of the headset, allowing you to have a virtual desktop, as well as "pin" windows (e.g. Spotify) in 3D space while you're playing VR games. The beta functionality will launch before the end of the year, and I expect will give the Oculus Rift headset even more value.

If you purchase the £399 Oculus Rift and Touch bundle, you'll eventually be able to do everything seen in the video above.



- Oculus also announced a standalone portable headset called the "Oculus Go". This will launch in 2018 for around £200, and will be comparable to Samsung Gear VR and Google Daydream. Oculus implied that as developers, Gear VR and Oculus Go are cross-compatible, though I'm unsure whether this extends to your existing software library if you already have a Gear VR. To my knowledge, it does NOT have positional tracking. They also announced their next-generation portable which currently has the working title "Santa Cruz". This portable headset will ultimately replace the Oculus Go, but not for a year or two. The headset has inside-out tracking, and appears to be tetherless. There are no details yet regarding release date or price. From what I understand, the Santa Cruz doesn't pair with a gaming PC, but is a self-contained solution like the Go.

If you're satisfied with the kinds of mobile VR experiences seen on Samsung Gear VR and Google Daydream, and you don't want to spend money on a PC, then you may want to hold out for this, but bear in mind the Santa Cruz coming in the next few years.

You should move out asap then. Go and live in other countries and see how they are run!

blueflash8 h, 5 m ago

Only problem with the Go is it is basically GearVR but you no longer need to have the phone first, and it is really limited to what it can do compared to the Vive or Rift, yes it offers 360 head tracking but that is about it, no motions vr controller, no sensors, no positional tracking, so it can't track where you move in 3d realtime space.

Your statement is not true.

From arstechnica.co.uk/gad…te/

"The same tracking system is used for the motion controllers; they include embedded accelerometers, and this data is combined with the camera data (since most of the time your hands will be on the edge of your field of view), and inverse kinematic models (which is to say: since you're holding the controllers, their movements are limited by human anatomy)."


The controllers still get tracked, it may just not be as accurate, but other reports I've read say it's pretty spot on.

So is the general feeling that once the mixed stuff comes out the oculus rift should come down in price? I'm kinda wanting it for one game only atm (star trek bridge crew), and as I suffer from video game motion sickness cheaper the better!
E: any feeling if the new stuff would be backwards compat?

So should I get a Vive or a Rift? Rift seems the obvious choice now, considering the price drop and the fact that I'm more likely to be playing Elite Dangerous than any game that requires me to leap around the room.

I wouldn't be surprised if this runs in cinemas over the next few months.If the video above gets you very excited, and you have a compatible PC, then grabbing a bundle is probably a good move.


let's be honest here - with the resolution limits of the rift, the experience is going to look nothing like what it does in these rendered videos. any rift owner can agree!

Good price and Rift is great fun, I love taking apart those robots in robo recall with my virtual hands! Close up detail of guns/hands etc is truly amazing..
