    $700CDN for the Quest!?!?!?!?!!?!?!?!

    WAY overpriced.
    We're actually getting a better deal than Americans at that price, because it includes all taxes. For us in Ontario, if you deduct the 13% HST, you get $618.58 CAD. That converts to about $460 before tax for the 128 GB version, while the list price is $499 USD.
    Hmm. Didn’t know they included the taxes in that price.  Usually when I order an Oculus product it’s from Amazon.ca.

    I didn't see anyone mentionning the teasing from the last speaker. Literally during the last minute.

    With that smile and "The next phase of social VR is on the horizon", I feel like there are going to drop something really huge at the next Oculus Connect!

    I'd love to see what happens to those realistic avatars if you do something like, set your Touch on the ground and walk away from it.  Or take off the headset, even. 

    Hoping they can apply all this realistic human muscle mapping to avatars that aren't human, too,  because I'm really hoping I'll get to be a robot or monster or something one of these days.   I put on my Rift to get away from the boring human meat body, not to realistically recreate it.
    :tongue:

    Footage from when she heard the news. Imagine when she gets the free Quest.

    Better video of the entire avatar segment:

    He does say it's a few years away from consumer release, but they are working on it.

    Considering they all paid nearly $600 for those f8 tickets, I wouldn't really call them free.

    In fact, it's more like they paid $600 for a Quest early-release, and got to listen to facebook execs talk as a bonus, lol.
