VR is like 3D TVs at home. When you first got one you thought WOW! this is great!

Then after a bit you start to regret it. Wee niggles and doubts start to appear and it becomes cumbersome. Then before you know it, its lying in the corner gathering dust.

For me at least, the end product just did not justify the outlay at this point in time.

Who knows, maybe in a couple of years it will be fantastic but we are now past the real early adopter stage and it is now looking at mainstream penetration even the PS4 VR headset hasn't set the heather on fire and given the PS3 was supposed to be a trojan horse for Blu-ray and it didn't really work compared to DVD I'm sure they would have thought VR might have had more success.

I cannot speak for the HTC Vive as I've only used Occulus and briefly played the VR headset on PS4.

It would take a real massive change now, in my opinion for VR to become mainstream. We aren't yet at the stage where we are all going to be doing a Ready Player One and logging on to the OASIS in a full haptic suit!

This is really tempting.

Good deal with the £100 credit, though they went down in price to the new RRP of £399.99 on Wednesday/Thursday everywhere, Game maybe not updated pricing yet online.

4K PC headsets should arrive in 2018. Good deal though, heated.

Yeah seen that deal before posting so though this is even better with £100 credit.

The £100 credit will go quite far too - most stuff is reasonably priced. Gets some heat from me, I love mine.

I thought the £100 credit only ran for a couple of weeks in June?

All of those games come with Rift+Touch as standard anyway, but the £100 credit is an amazing deal. Can get tonnes of good stuff for that.

Not sure whether these are a fad or not have not had the chance to try one and not will to risk £££ what are peoples views on these and what is the difference with the old version

Still don't feel VR is going to last!

I have PS VR, and it is amazing.

Just waiting for 4k headsets before getting PC VR.

Good luck finding a PC that can support it. You need a fairly decent PC already to support the headsets out now and they are HD.

How do you get the 100 credit is it a voucher

Every once in a while, new technology solves an old problem and a big idea turns into an innovation.

A PC that currently takes adavantage of 4K can run the current 4K VR fine.

I don't think its the same as a fix screen if the current ones need a high system to full vr in 1080p its stand to reason that more power would be needed for 4k vr i could be wrong tho

Really tempting but I know I shouldn't, heat added anyway

4k headsets really won't make much of a difference as you'd think. You'll still get the SDE. I've owned The Rift DK1, DK2 and CV1 and in my opinion FOV is king when it comes to VR. Pimax is going in the right direction with their 8k 200° FOV headset.

Hmmmm, Mixed Reality Headsets out on Wednesday?

Just got off Bigscreen with 3 of my mates watching the new Spiderman movie.

Stunning offer. I bought my headset for 400 and then the touch controllers for full price at lauch and I felt that was good value at the time for the fun I had with them.

399 for all the kit plus 7 games and 100 quid credit is a killer deal.

If you've ever been sat on the fence about getting a rift, time to hop off

Really tempting, If only it was release at this price

Fabebook's getting desperate.
Holding off on VR until the second gen but this deal is enticing.

Loved that book so much. I am personally keen on vr but feel this price point means the inevitable oculus 4k headset is round the corner so don't want to buy then be superceded in the matter of months

You have to experience it to understand what it's like, a video can't really explain it. However I have had one at work for a year, and still don't feel sure about buying one myself. It seems amazing at first, but the novelty rapidly wears off.

Best thing I ever bought and I paid £550 for the headset and £180 for the touch controllers and still have zero regrets. Now I'm buying the £850 i5 Erazer with a 6gb gtx 1060 thats on sale at Argos so I can take it out with me. Zero regret!

ive got one...coolest gadget i own... VR paintball with 7 others .... can spend hours paying this...

and having an IMAX cinema on your head... u can even have others join you in your own IMAX personal cinema...

Definitely considering this. Not sure whether to hold off for Black Friday.

VR is like 3D TVs at home.


I really disagree. I haven't watched anything in 3D on my TV for more than 15 minutes because I was just happier watching in 2D. But with VR I've bought nearly 30 games in one year because I love the experiences and unique gameplay so much.

Have called the three in my area and none have this deal going. Has anyone sucessfully managed to get this deal yet?

Ev0lution11 h, 56 m ago

The lack of decent games really doesn't help. I don't think enough developers understand enough about the psychology of VR to really do it justice. Playing a normal style game but in VR (e.g. Bound, a driving sim, a wave shooter) is okaaay for the 'hmm, its 3D and all around me' moment, but nowhere near delivers on the potential of what VR could provide. SuperHot is more interesting, in how it conditions the brain to process time differently, or Resident Evil 7 (by far the best PSVR title) for using the movement based sneakiness, peering round corners, sense of anticipation etc. But mostly I've found the lack of games, and the ideas behind the existing titles, woefully lame.

This deal shows it’s available now though. Could be store specific I guess unless anyone else has managed to get this elsewhere.

This was the promotion that ran 11-24 June
'Get £100 Oculus store credit when you purchase rift + touch
For a limited time only, get a £100 store credit to purchase digital content in the Oculus Store. With titles such as Batman Arkham VR, Superhot VR and Wilson’s Heart there’s plenty to choose from.'

It's an old promotion, if game are still displaying the poster then it's likely a mistake, i'm pretty sure no one has or will get this deal.
