Forgot to mention last week that the Oculus Rift's head controls were finally announced. $199 and ships by end of year.
Rift headset ($600) + hand controls ($199) = $799

HTC Vive = $799.

They are now the same price.

yep as expected they would match vive price. Why undercut it to sell more units right!

Would have been interesting if they offered the bundle at like $750, but that would make current Rift owners mad who have to pay $800 to get it all. Maybe they should have done $150 for anyone who preordered the Rift. That would have been cool to those that already own it and its a way of thanking customers for sticking with them.

Tested this week really makes me want to try these controls. I know they have them at a mall to try.

The Rift is now $100 cheaper and the hand controls are $100 cheaper. All in the Rift is $600.

Jocelyn gave me her blessing if I want to spend part of my bonus on it. I'll see how I feel about it at the end of the month. I told Tylersucks/Cwilkins they could pay and be part owners in it if they wanted.

I don't think I can justify this. Salvo even has a friend selling a Vive for $500 and I can't pull the trigger. I don't think I would use it more than a couple hours a week. If Tylersucks wanted to split it 50/50 I think I would do it. Luckily we work 2 minutes apart so it wouldn't be a huge hassle to hand it back and forth

That's the same reason I don't have one. Very hard to justify that kind of money on a product in its infancy.

If this was pre-parenthood I would pull the trigger right now. Gone are the days of unlimited free time, and I don't miss them!

I still have an urge to get this since the price drop. I think I'm going to hold out until this fall. Summer would be a horrible time to buy into VR. This fall might have another price drop (or very unlikely, news about v2).

Want encouragement? I would love to compare this to Vive's controls (so get it!).
