Consumer Oculus Rift confirmed 499 GBP

son of a motherless goat. The Oculus Rift will cost a staggering £499 here in the UK with current shipping time of Q2 2016!!

Fortunately four years ago I backed it on kickstarter and get this little beaut for free. Hopefully sooner than Q2 too, but for the rest of you… Well

What’s in the box

    Son of a freakin Jim – a post from lartens! 2016 truly is already a year of wonders! Oh and the oculus price is also quite shocking… Hehe. Is yours gonna be the retail model then? Cos don’t you already have one?! Do you mean you get another one too?!

    Speaking of posts from you two, I’d just like to confirm I’d be very excited to see the night trap post. No pressure of course. Time is hardly of the essence here at GRiG towers. But just in case you were thinking nah, I can’t be arsed – just to confirm you’ve got a ready audience more excited than a Star Wars fan in a queue at comic con…

    Ps well played to my iPhone that seems to have learned to spell check GRiG towers and automatically do the capitals in GRiG. Except this time it didnt. Piece of freakin buh

      Jacksie! Well, that’s a beastly price tag to start. i was wondering how crazy these things were gonna be cost wise. I guess I’ll see VR in 20 years or so!

      As for Night Trap, I’ve spent literally an entire day on the vid so far… and it sucks. Pretty much up to the standards of my channel, but I think I can get more out of it so I’m taking time to think how best to do it. Can’t let it defeat me though, it will emerge!

    so wait, what can you actually DO with the oculus rift? sounds stupid in a way, but try this: with a console and a telly, i can play games. what do you put with an oculus rift to play games?! and assuming it’s a console or PC, is it only limited titles that play? and do you only have limited actions you can do?!

    wait… you’ve got one of these haven’t you?! didn’t you get an early version of it or something?!
