£750ish for this and a 1070, i'm out

Don't get me wrong, I could order both and have them by tomorrow but I just don't think we're quite 'there' yet. In the meantime i'll carry on buying crappy VR compatible games till I finally come to the conclusion that we never will be 'there' and buy anyway
You system needs to be powerful enough to run games at 90fps minimum, else you're going to end up feeling sick with how poorly it looks

lol. No I don't have any kids to sell. We have a small zoo though.
This has been the go to price on Amazon since few days/last week now. I wonder if Oculus will announce the next gen headset at CES?

[EDIT] Based on this, seems Oculus won't be at CES 2018.

polygon.com/vir…pec

It used to have to run at 90fps but not anymore

CEO Brendan Iribe announced a new, lower minimum hardware spec for using Oculus Rift. The new spec is thanks to a technology called Asynchronous Spacewarp, allowing systems to deliver a stable 45 frames per second, while the ASW technology effectively doubles that and fills in the gaps. That means smooth VR running on cheaper hardware. Here it is:

  • Nvidia 960 or greater (down from Nvidia GTX 970 / AMD 290 equivalent or greater)
  • Intel i3-6100 / AMD FX4350 or greater (down from Intel i5-4590 equivalent or greater)
  • 8GB+ RAM (same)
  • Compatible HDMI 1.3 video output (same)
  • 1x USB 3.0, 2x USB 2.0 (change from 2x USB 3.0 ports)
  • Windows 8 or newer (change from Windows 7 SP1 or newer)

It's been jumping inbetween £349 and £399 since Black Friday. I won't be able to afford the new one as that's likely to be £600+ so I'm happy with this price mark. I doubt my PC would be able to run the new one either.
is 980Ti fine for this? Without having to worry about upgrading anytime soon?

pussy
Bought this myself on Wed after trying my brothers the day before, absolute bargain at this price and really takes not only gaming but home entertainment to the next level. Anyone not sure I can promise you won't be disappointed 🖒
Bought this same deal last week from Amazon and i'm loving it, you really need to try it to appreciate how good VR looks as watching youtube videos is nothing like the experience you see when you've actually got the headset on.

Yep! I have a 970 that I bought yonks back, and it's fine, especially when you're running your apps through the Oculus store (or on Steam in circumstances where games/apps use the Oculus SDK).

The 980Ti will run like an absolute dream! (I'm jealous!)

i'm running it with GTX 1060 6Gb and i think that's about the same power wise as your 980ti, runs like butter on my PC with everything i've played so far. my other specs are Ryzen 1600 & 16 gigs of ram. Btw if you go to the Oculus site they have a tool you can download and it checks if your PC is good enough to run VR.
Will this gather dust though? Any users here ....do you use it all the time or just when you are bored and play for like an hour?

I got the Gear VR with my phone and I thought the quality was insanely bad, in particularly the blurriness at the edges.Just could not get immersed. I know its completely different category of hardware but i gave up trying to enjoy the experience.

The 980ti is roughly equivalent to the 1070 (but all three are great cards for VR)

That all depends on what you enjoy playing, I'm having a blast playing my racing sims (Project Cars 2/Dirt Rally/Assetto Corsa) games as the immersion is on another level compared to a flat screen, your mileage may vary....Pun intended
OP, might get more views if it was spelt correctly as Oculus

This is me.. apparently the one thing phones get better than the rift is the resolution and I thought it was terrible on my Note 8. Wayy to pixelated and that's coming from someone who plays at 1080p and is happy with that.

Don't get me wrong I still get tempted but until the reslution improves I'm trying to hold off.
I absolutely love mine. I bought the Vive first, then the Rift and sold the Vive. Yes the Vive can do better 360deg tracking but an extra sensor for the Rift (£59) and it's just as good. The controllers on the Rift are far superior to me. The Rift feels far more comfortable to wear as well, it's better balanced on your head thanks to the better head strap.
Bought one a few months ago it is amazing when you first try it. But now it's just sitting on the shelf gathering dust.

1060 is on par with a 970 which was a cracking card. I used one for VR and had zero issues.

I then upgraded to a 1080, it does look better but only marginally, I was expecting more of a jump. Can't go wrong with any of the 10 series for VR (higher than 1050 of course)

I've had mine for almost 14 months. I've had more phases where it gathers dust no doubt. There is also blurriness on the sides of the Rift [moreso than on the Gear VR - I have that as well]. The idea is that you move your head around more than you move your eyes to minimise exposure to blurriness. There is a small sweet spot that you gotta find. The God rays can be a bit annoying at times as well. Other than that, its a solid piece of kit and can be good fun with the touch controllers. Co-op is also good if you know someone that has it.
If I bought this what else would I eed to get use of it? Games? PC? Gaming Machine? what?
Thanks

- A PC with at least the minimum specs listed on the Rift website, and ideally a bit more powerful than the minimum. This is likely to be at least £650 if you're au fait with putting it together yourself; more if you need a pre-built machine

- Some compatible PC games.

I suppose that doesn't count in Amazon lightning deals? They sold the Rift Touch bundle for £299 few months back :O

I remember playing windlands and that really did my head in the first few attempts. VR sickness is a state of mind, you need to take it in small stages and train yourself to accept the new reality.
A good deal on reality
This is an amazing product at a great price.

It's basically an additional sensor you buy [you get two with this package] which allows you to setup a 360 degree roomscale play area like this

Just looked on the oculus site and saw this....

"Oculus Sensor£59*

With a clear line of sight, Oculus Sensor tracks constellations of IR LEDs to translate your movements in VR. Its stand is ideal for most setups, and its standard 1/4-20 mount works with most tripods. Requires Rift, sold separately. When used as a third sensor, it requires an additional USB 2.0 or higher port. Learn more.

Please note that two-sensor 360° tracking is an experimental feature – not all experiences may work as expected. Three-sensor 360° is fully supported."

So 2 sensor is experimental, 3 sensor they know works and yet they cheap out on the consumer.
I'm not too sure what to do as I have good graphic card 1080. I'm playing games nearly everyday like cod ww2, battlefield 1, unknowbattlefield etc. But what will that actually do to my gaming experience? As I've never tried one. Will it work with this games??

I have been using a GTX 970 and i have had no real issues with games, so your 980ti will laugh at VR games.

Oh and i have been enjoying 360° tracking with just two sensors with no issues, works great, and my roomsclae is classed as moderate, i have about 9 feet by 7 feet play area and i have not come across any issues with this, although if you have a bigger play area then a third sensor would be needed

I honestly could not enjoy it at all, 2D was better just because of the ease of use. Thanks for the reply
Isn’t a replacement due
A friend of mines tried VR porn on oculus.

habent seen him in a while, doesnt come out much these days
