I wonder if they'll make a mandatory ingame hat/accessory that corresponds to whether you're using the goggles.

@ Anonymous Oculus Rift owners will get a code for an exclusive hat, but it won't be mandatory to wear. xD Would be great if it was so you could see whether people the headset were doing better, worse.

That's actually a cool idea. Pitch it to Valve.

I wish every FPS will support this hardware. I really like the concept of playing games with rift.

I'm sure everyone and their kids will want their games ported to the oculus rift, profit be damned, just to experience their own games in VR.

Considering the amount of hype around it, I'm sure it will do well, especially if its even half of what people who've used it describe it as. Keep the price low, around 200 to 300 dollars, and the Oculus Rift is a house hold name.

motorstep No specifics. They made it sound like Doom 3 BFG will eventually make it. Odds are it's just having some development problems have delayed it well beyond what Oculus was hoping for.

Apparently the game can't have much in terms of blow back or kick back when firing guns or moving around, otherwise the user can get motion sickness, so depending on the game the coding can be complicated. I'm sure TF2 was easy.

Northern49 An understandable issue, but at the same time... I kinda want to experience that firsthand to see if it's something I'd find noticeable.
