The event many people have been waiting for… the ability to order an Oculus Rift of your own has now arrive. You can now pre-order an Oculus Rift today by clicking here.
So, the news everyone is waiting for… how much exactly is the Rift going to cost?
$600??? Wow… that’s pretty much double what I was expecting. Not that I was particularly excited after discovering that my machine can’t even run the Rift. You see, if you own a laptop that has Optimus technology… it doesn’t work with the Rift anymore, they broke compatibility with version 0.7. If someone at Oculus is listening, you might want to put it in big bold letters OCULUS RIFT DOES NOT RUN ON 99% of LAPTOPS!
So, a very high price point and incompatible with laptops… I don’t exactly expect a VR explosion. Let’s just say I am suddenly much more excited for the HTC Vive. I will say however, I have a GearVR and I absolutely love it. That said, it was also $100.
