Oculus Rift Promo Code

18
Found 17th Dec 2013
was thinking about ordering an oculus rift as a xmas pressie to myself, and was going to pay via paypal. when I select paypal, a box appears asking for a promo code. im assuming this provides some sort of discount.

anybody have or know what the code is, and what sort of discount it offers?

He is just a regular user here

As for the code, well, it could be anything really. It may be for people who have gift vouchers to use or perhaps they are running a promo where a certain code will get you a % off the price. I have no idea if there are any codes about though.

not interesting in waiting and aint a dev. there is enough material and compatible games out there to get an understanding of what its all about. then when ever the consumer version is released, I will buy that if there is enough of an upgrade to justify it

That's not a specific discount code field just for the oculus rift, it's just a generic discount code field that every website has, doesn't necessarily mean there is a code for some discount on the oculus.

that did cross my mind. thanks for letting me know.

but im going to hold off for a while, as there is expected to be announcements at ces in early January about the consumer version or the new development kit 2
I heard consumer version before end of next year. also I emailed some people on eBay with dev version... not much works with it for now which is why there are so many for sale on there
Yeah the dev kit sucks. Lots of motion blur and very blurry because of the low res screen.

The HD prototype I tried is much better. Either wait for the 1080p DK2 or the consumer version. They recently get quite a large amount of funding so they may be focusing on the consumer version. They did specify though that they want to wait until there's a lot of software available for the rift.

In layman terms, don't buy it as it's going to be a waste of money. It's not going to be long before the consumer version or DK2.
The only game I've seen with native support is Assetto corsa. That said though I dont know how well it supports this. I know AMD Crossfire isn't supported very well yet so something like Oculus Rift I imagine would be not the greatest. It's good to see the support is coming though
