**UPDATE: I pre-ordered the shit out of one.**
Hey! Look at that. Er, I mean…consider it. There’s nothing really to look at, is there? So it doesn’t make any sense for me to be all, ‘HURR LOOK AT THAT DUUURRRR!”
…It’s Monday, friends. Bear with me.
Anyway, starting Wednesday, January 6th at 8 am PST you, friends, can pre-order your very own Oculus Rift. (Also known just as “the Rift” if you’re one of the cool kids.) Before you get TOO excited (you are jumping out of your skin with joy, are you not?) know that we don’t know squat when it comes to “the Rift’s” (I’m so cool) pricing or release date.
So. You gonna get one? Sure, that decision probably depends on aforementioned absent information (pricing and date) but, would you at least CONSIDER getting one?
As for me, I absolutely want to purchase a VR headset – I’m just not sure which one. I’ve played around with the Rift two times in my day – the first time was when it was still held together by duct tape, the second time was for a 2015 PAX Prime third-party demo that wasn’t so hot. (Spoilers: it gave me motion sickness.) That same weekend, however, I spent ten or so minutes with Playstation VR and walked away from THAT demo completely blown away. In fact, that’s the demo that sold me on VR.
I’m not a VR expert, but I think a lot, LOT of it has to do with the quality of the game. That’s been my experience, anyway.
Let me know what you think!
