Some say May 1st, it might be later but either way it's soon. My question is, will you buy as soon as they become available (or as soon as you are able to) or will wait for some reviews or until the price drops or some other reason. If you don't want one, then no need to respond here. ;)

    There was already a poll about that. The question here has a different slant.

    I won't be buying right away - but I will likely get a couple around Christmas time.

    No for me, no desire to have one. I am all about PC-VR.

    From the reviews the screen is much better than the Rifts which Is worrying me that I will start to hate switching back to the inferior Rift display.

    Anyone know is there are any prescription lens going to be sold? I purchased from vr-lens.eu and It makes the experience on the Rift awesome.

    Good point! I haven't even considered that.

    From Oculus blurb page guys = 

    Designed with breathable fabrics, Oculus Go is comfortable and fully adjustable. It can even be used with glasses.

    If I hadn't experiences full-cream hands-n-all VR, then yes I might have bought.... or maybe if I was a frequent flyer I'd probably go for it... or if my brother got one and a lot of multi-player games came out for it


    mmm the more I think about it the more ors creep in

    I’ll wait for a couple good reviews from REPUTABLE sources. 

    None of the Linus crap reviews.

    He will probably drop it, break the lenses and expect Oculus to fix it ..

    I’m getting one, even though I’m not sure what I’ll do with it. It’s cheap enough, so why not?

    Tomorrow is the big day then (if speculation is to be believed). Virtual wallets at the ready. $$$

     Therefore the GO will become my defacto VR porn device. 

    Oh snap, did I really just broadcast that out aloud.  :( 
    Is the remote washable?

    No Go for me. I am waiting for the next one.. I want one that will use all the software that I have now. Does anyone know when the Santa Cruz will be out?
  • nalex66nalex66 Posts: 4,129 Power Poster
    Anyone know what time the F8 keynote happens? I'm going to be on a flight tomorrow morning, so I might miss out on jumping into the pre-order queue as soon as it's announced. Hopefully they have lots of stock available.
