Amazon oos until 10/08. Game were stocking at this price too buy went oos this morning. Placed order with scan about 1 hour ago, just received confirmation the order has been picked.

Scan seems to be the only place with stock at this price (people are reporting long wait times ordering directly from oculus website).
A bit disingenuous comparing the price to JL and Curry's as neither are selling the touch bundle; they're legacy prices for just the headset.
The current RRP for the bundle is £399.99, and you can buy it at that price direct from Oculus. (Though I don't recommend you do, their delivery times are long, and their direct support is apparently terrible)

You also get the listed free games regardless of where you buy (except 2nd hand obviously)

Are Scan selling the new all in one bundle (missing the xbone controller and remote), or the older 2 packages?
Also no more code for Eve Valkyrie included?

New one box bundle price will be £499 once sale has finished. Was £500 (possibly £550_without touch controllers before sale. Cost me £738 for both in Decemember :-P

If you have a gaming PC then imo you're crazy not to get this at £400 (assuming you'd happily pay £200+ plus for GPU or monitor).

Worth adding that you'll be shelling out an extra ~£20 for additional cabling* if you want room scale on 2 sensors.
Plus an extra £60 if you go for the recommended 3 sensor room scale setup.

*I got 1x5m active USB3 (for far-side sensor), 1x2m hdmi 2.0 (for headset), 2x2m passive usb3 (for headset and near-side sensor)

If you've got a motherboard with crappy usb3 support you might also find you need to pick up a usb3 controller card. (~£20+).
Though I've had no problems with the controller on my MSI B350 Gaming Pro Ryzen mobo.


Oculus is definitely not a finely tuned 'all in one box' experience like we've come to take for granted with modern consoles.

VR is fecking awesome though; an utterly unique gaming experience.
Hard to put a price on something that's so unique.

Oculus support is indeed terrible but the Oculus is great. I would highly recommend buying from amazon or John lewis(once they have new stock and have adjusted their price) so you have good customer service in the event of issues.

As TehJummpingJava notes above be aware that you will likely need extra cabling and possibly a usb card.

As fantastic as it is VR is still pretty much an enthusiasts hobby. It's still too much faff for most people with all the cables and setup etc. I reckon that there will be a lot of these on Ebay around Christmas. Then again I wouldn't want someone's sweaty 2nd hand Rift!

Received mine on Saturday, can confirm it is touch bundle, so no remote/xbone controller. No eve, but robo recall, dead and buried etc.

I sent mine back and re-bought a Vive!

I bought USB extensions, wall mounts and an extra sensor (£75 for touch with sensors locally and sold the extra touch for £65 keeping the sensor)



Positives :

Slightly better image than the Vive, better implementation on Euro Truck 2 and ATS and I think Elite
Liked the headphones
Touch Controllers had nice features (knowing what you were touching etc...)
Better FOV as closer to eyes than Vive closest setting

Negatives

Wires all over the place, short and thin headset cable
Sensors are like a kinder toys and have to have part of the stand connected to mounts, it's clunky and untidy
Prefer the way Vive has a connection box to the PC
People say more comfortable than Vive but they are a lot hotter and sweaty to wear
Even with 3 Sensors they are not great at certain angles (Vive tracking is da bomb)
I keep thinking I'm going to break the controllers (I bash my Vive ones of walls constantly with no issue)
Triggers are crappy (VR is home to the rail shooter)
Not for the bespectacled
Cheap foam surrounds the eye pieces and super heats your head, no way to move the view away or towards


If I didn't wear glasses and only wanted a seated experience I would be all over these but the cables all plugged into the back of my computer and horrible sensor implementation

I HATE WIRES btw...

I sent mine back too, though don't think I'll be buying a Vive any time soon.

Took a lot of um'ing and ah'ing, 'cos £329 was such a good price.
However, as you say, it ain't great for spectacle wearers; my lenses were showing scratches after just 3 days of light use.
Within a few months the wear would render them unusable.

Besides the spectacles issue (which exposed the complete lack of product maintainability & support from Oculus), there were a few other issues:

- face overheating was an issue for me too
- the touch controllers, while ergonomically awesome, do appear to have some manufacturing problems; finger gestures intermittently failing, and triggers clicking (due to the cushioning migrating)
- the price and small scope of VR exclusive games, and the limited number of non-VR exclusive games with good VR support.
- cables, cables, everywhere!
- Min spec should really be a 1070. (I have a 1060 6GB)

VR is definitely an amazing and unique experience.
However it's a market that's still in its early adopter phase; game design needs to catch up to the new tech, and the hardware needs quite a bit of fine-tuning.

I think I'll wait until the next gen.

^^^I bought the Rift in the summer sale for £399 with everything including the xbox controller and dongle and all the free games.....i am running on a GTX970 and have yet to encounter any issues with any game running great on the system, Elite Horizons, Robot Recall, Archangle,Rec room, Bridge crew, Alien isolation, to name just a few....... and i am running 360 roomscale in a moderate size setting with just two sensors with no issues, it is awesome....can't believe you were having issues with a 1060, something not right there, what CPU you got with that, i have a i7 core.

Oh and on the issue for lense scratching.......40mm savvie watch face protectors(£1.70 ebay), and a sharp blade(wet shave razor is the best), cut from the middle outwards a very thin wedge, then lay the savvie onto the lense in a clockwise motion from one side of the wedge to the other, and there you have it, protected lense, and the sharper the blade the less you will actually be able to see anything, perfect until somebody makes a actual cv1 protector, but better to have this than nothing.

And another tip for elite vr fans and godrays and writting, drop the res to 1600/1200 as this helps make the writting eaiser to read and then for the love of god change the hud colour from the default to a nice medium green, then drop the panel brightness down while in your ship until you are happy.
