I noticed Headmaster was 50% off at £7.49.

It's actually really good with the Samsung gear controller

I've been looking at getting an S7/S8, hopefully with a Gear too so might get a few whilst they're cheap. Any particular recommendations? I bought Brookhaven just coz I know it from PS VR, and going to get the 8p one too (Haunted). Only looking at the cheapest ones unless something is really worth getting. Also, do they do a lot of these kinds of sales or is it just a seasonal thing? Thanks OP!

£200 headset on its way



They said that headset is going to be very basic.

Interesting move by Oculus; reneging on their "normal price will be £499" so soon after the summer promo ended.

It's a unique experience for sure, but with numerous reliability issues, tedious and inconvenient warranty claim process, and no provisioning for out of warranty repairs, I'm waiting for the next gen.

If you do buy into Oculus, buy from a 3rd party (like Amazon) so you're less reliant upon Oculus' poor CS.

At least not 'soon', and certainly not for this particular Oculus bundle.Oculus themselves have said this price is not sustainable and is only an attempt to get more people playing VR. After the six week promo it will go to 499.As for the future? Of course it will get cheaper, most likely when they release the second generation of headsets. Those are more likely to be mid-range products though, so don't expect them to be a big leap up in tech for now.


Yeah it's a decent deal for what it is right now, I'm just happy to wait because although I've tried VR and think it's cool, it isn't as comfortable as sitting down and playing my PC as I have done since I was a kid. VR will kick off in a big way soon no doubt, and i'll embrace it when I need to :-D

It seems like demand exceeded expectations, I don't think they are trying to con anyone.

It's still £100 off than it will be later on.

I really don't get the hate with VR. It's really not that expensive, just to put it into comparison I just randomly picked the latest Iphone 7 with 128GB storage and it's £55 a month on a 24 month contract with EE right now. £1320 in total, that's more than double the cost of an Oculus and touch controllers. Yea sure the phone is new and about 10% better than the old one. One is a mobile almost exactly like your last one and the other is able to transport your body and mind to new worlds.

I cam home from work and floated around the International Space Station in what feels like zero gravity. Trying a VR headset for the first time is right up there with the first time started Mario 64, watching the special effects of Jurassic park as a kid or watching Avatar in 3D.

I have yet to meet anybody at the end of their 2 year phone contract that were happy with their device, you would never find a Oculus or Vive customer say the same about their VR headset.

Haha, i'm totally anthropomorphising your abandoned TV. Mine's a samsung too. It's good in many ways. Nice and clean, and the 3D with active glasses is crisp, but yeah, not very depthy. Maybe it's a Samsung thing. Or maybe it's just certain sets or something.

Farpoint does look interesting. I'll have to try to convince my friend with a PS4 to get involved so I can give it and the PSVR a go! I did think about selling my Xbox, which gets no use at all, and getting all the kit, but it seemed like a big investment, and I was concerned about it being a walled garden. It would be fantastic if PS4 released something that let the PSVR work via some kind of PC run service - like Microsoft are doing with the Xbox brand. Would love to give Zero Dawn a go too. Wishful thinking though probably.

Elite Dangerous, at least the base game, never quite got me hooked like other MMO's (which I avoid for this reason) did. I really like it as a meditative experience, but the grind feels so ridiculous at certain levels, and the content so unvaried, that actually I don't feel compelled to work for it. It's a bit of a contradiction for me because I'd love it to be more involving, but as it is it's a fantastic game to just chill out with a beer in when you feel like it. So a mixed experience, but I reckon you're safe to dip foot in. You should definitely try the tutorials if you haven't already, they're good fun on their own!

Have you tried Subnautica? I can't recommend that game enough. (It's early access, but about to be complete). I mention it because that game actually scares me. Starts off just splashing around in beautiful tropical water. 5 hours later, and I'm spending most of my time in terrifying darkness glancing around furtively for reapers. It's great the way it slowly builds and uses atmosphere to encourage you to get the vehicles so that you can feel safe again!

They are cool in concept, but never felt like they really had the depth to be worth while.

Games like Subnautica, which I've really enjoyed in VR, I can't even consider playing on a screen now. Same for things like Elite Dangerous. They are hands down better as immersive experiences that surround you. I didn't have that kind of conversion with 3DTV media. I thought 3D media was at it's core equal or worse than 2D media as an experience due to the blurriness in motion. I definitely agree that fragmentation is damaging to the VR industry though. I love VR, but I wouldn't recommend someone who isn't a reasonably savvy PC gamer get a Vive or a Rift right now. I don't think this is totally down to Oculus though. My understanding is that Oculus would like Vive users to use their store, but HTC/Valve won't open up the hardware to allow it to use the Oculus SDK, and Oculus only want to use their own SDK on their store - for quality control reasons (and perhaps others). There are also plenty of Vive exclusive games, even if they aren't exclusive due to store restrictions. It just feels like a complex environment at the moment, and one that isn't at all ideal for consumers.I guess the difference is that I think that shared VR standards will probably sort that out for Gen 2, which is where I think more people should (and hopefully will) jump in - both because converts like me will buy the new hardware, and because that will make the Gen 1 hardware cheaper for those who are just curious, and have older PC's, or have bought new PC's on a budget - once the equivalent of a GTX 970 is available in the low range cost bracket of graphics cards. How's the PSVR? I haven't been able to give it a try (no PS4).

​Hi

I love my Vive and PSVR. I have pretty much every game on PSVR and a lot of Vive Games.

I also love 3d TVs but VR looks like going the same way.. Rift is helping in the demise.

To geebeegooner's point in steam.. I disagree. I don't think it really hurts too much as I've never bought a really bad game, that's what reviews are for and more monkeys will eventually give us Shakespeare...

You can get some great experiences for a few quid on steam that can be £20 on PSVR.

My least favorite purchase has been Apollo VR which seems to be raved about. It just doesn't deliver for me (as a many time visitor to Kenedy) as I find the Imax Blurays give me a far better experience on my TV.

I bought this and an intel i3 with a GTX 470 and it's flawless. They lowered the spec required for this but HTC still needsa much higher spec for some reason. Pc cost me £356 and now I'm playing Superhot and a whole heap of free VR games. It was this or the PS4 Pro and PsVR+motion controllers and camera which ran about the same price but 1/2 as good

Thanks, I'll do that.

Tried Elite Dangerous out - only using controller to test for now instead of setting up flight stick etc - massive performance improvement since when tried on DK2 back in the day where it was pretty much unplayable.

The godrays are a bit annoying at times giving a bit of a smudgy effect but all still a milestone ahead of the troubles used to get in DK1/2

Suffered badly in the DKs also with motion sickness. Had no issues with robo recall. Was surprised how well 'teleport' worked without feeling nauseous. I did get a bit queezy with Lucky's Tale tho, but nowhere to same extent (yet)...will be interesting when try some of the older stuff that was more prone to knock me for 6

As a workaround to all your issues, set your usual sound speakers to default when the Rift is on, then it'll stop doing it (The Rift will auto-route any VR audio to the Rift, whether its default or not). Also, close the Rift store app to turn off the rift. Then it'll be off unless you put the headset on, at which point it'll relaunch the store.

in a nutshell to fully stop the app and display from coming on do a "net stop ovrservice" command.

At least I see it doesn't appear to tie gpu usage up when display is off which was a little cornered about.

The VR price matrix is completely wrong and should be encouraging consumers to buy into lots of new experiences, not occasionally spending £30-£40 on 2-4 hours of gameplay.



Yeah VR stuff is a bit niche but at least the sale seems to be bringing the prices down reasonably well

I got TheBlu, because i love scuba diving but with a new family i wont be going any time soon, but its an experience not a game.
there is a lot of content, no one can suggest Oculus launched touch without anything to use on it, and most of it seems fairly good quality with a few strange exceptions, so it is hard to say. My advice......

buy something which is an oculus store exclusive and not on steam (note i did not take my own advice here!!!). as a rule of thumb steam stuff tends to be cheaper, and also stuff like pCARs you cant cross play with steam users so apparently the oculus store version is a little sparse online. Also Steam supports all headsets, where as right now officially oculus store only supports the rift, so if ever in the future you decide to switch devices, you may find it harder to access your oculus store stuff (this is not a vive vs oculus fanboy thread and there are many theories about who is at fault for this - though long term i would say valve can only be the winners if they stay like this, oculus needs to sell their store exclusives to vive owners if their store is to succeed imo).

if you cant decide yet just buy something cheap then you can play with the free stuff once you get your hmd and get a feel for what floats your boat.

edit and make sure you do not buy stuff which comes free if you buy the touch!!!

so medium, quill, dead and buried spring to mind.. .dont get these!.
