Hmm, I was hoping they'd have both standard and HD versions of the Oculus Rift available at launch. Now I'm faced with the question of early investment or waiting for the superior product...

IMO wait for superior product. It sounds like they're still experimenting with different platforms right now, and I'd rather wait to see how that pans out.

I'm waiting for my first true first person RPG.

And no, I don't mean something Skyrim like, with it's real time combat. I'm thinking of something Etrian Odyssey like, with exploration, mapping, and turn based combat.

I really hope this will have some sort of console compatibility as well. I would love to play Doom 4 with this thing, but there's simply no way I can afford a hardware upgrade substantial enough to max that game out. I'm glad John Carmack is backing this, too, he needs to be doing something other than porting Ultimate Doom to every brand of microwave.

based on what i have heard and read so far on the oculus i'm siding with chinagirl. sides, when the other one arrives you might regret your purchase and consider buying the HD version so it might be best to get it all done right on your first try

i know waiting can suck though, but it's just like the next console gen. everybody must have one full price at launch and those who managed to get hold of one act very elitist all of a sudden but if you really want to enjoy your investment in the fullest way possible without being bothered by any annoying things like a lack of compatible games or hardware that comes with it you gotta wait about a year.

S-I-E Right. At the same time, I've got to wonder what their schedule is realistically. If the initial Oculus Rift is the only release they're putting out for one, two years? It's be hard to justify waiting for the HD version for that long.

this is just another dumb gimmick like the car, the smartphone, the internet, the tablet and the computer.

the real question is the release of the HD version so I can finally die of a heart attack playing amnesia or scp containment breach.

from what i understand the display is simply 2 small screens, one in front of each eye.

Sounds like its going to cause some health issues to me.

Headaches, Eye twitches, Eye aches, and whatnot. perhaps worse.

Epoch that's a valid concern for potential buyers for sure
but idk... i'm sure they'll have to go through tests and shit, right?

Wouldnt be the first time a company released a product without full complete and proper testing due to high demand and profit %'s.
