    They really going all out to get new users into VR aren't they.

    Impossible. There are loads of countries that cannot order a rift or a quest.   Also there is only about 7.5 billion people on the whole planet.

    For the base model (64 GB). There will probably be a higher-priced version with more storage, which is the one I'll get, same as the Go.

    So... will users have to buy the Rift style games again or will they be cross platform? Also will this be £350 or £399?

    It’ll be 399 great British pounds and you can bet your bottom dollar on that ;)

    I'm glad I didn't buy a Go. I would feel cheated if I bought a Go.

    I bought a GO, and I don't feel cheated. I look forward to owning all 3. I've spent more money on a weekend after a pub crawl. Nothing to feel cheated about here.

    Actually I wonder - store wise - are they going to make it a thing you have to rebuy the games like they did with GO? Or do you think they're going to push harder that if you buy one - you get it for the other device? That would suck if you have to buy it three times. I understand maybe one for the mobile and one of the PC - but to buy it 3 times would feel a bit cheated in the long run.
  • ZenbaneZenbane Posts: 15,154 Valuable Player
    I'm assuming it's a re-buy. Hopefully there are "free keys" dev's can start to give out with each purchase, or at least bundled prices.

    This is a problem that will hopefully be solved by Gen 2.

    I think the 50 freebies will keep most folk happy for a fair while ?

    That is 50 games coming to the store - not 50 free games.

    Ahhh I thought that was bundled ????

    GO came with a shit-ton of freebies. No doubt that Quest will be the same.

    Yea was going to say I thought it was just 50 games coming to the SQ store. I mean I bet there will be free stuff:) but I don't think it was coming with 50 free games considering some of the games listed are still buyable games right now.

    Apparently Oculus accidentally posted on their blog that the cpu was the snapdragon 835 (same as the Vive Focus), but then quickly edited it out.

    If true, that's a shame, since the more powerful 845 is already in phones available now.

    Are your comparing mobile technology with that of a PC? PC VR is the best way to experience top quality VR and I hope they both have a future..

    I have to agree. This is a really good price for a very good VR HMD. No Cables, no sensors, HMD + Controllers. This is a very good price.
    Excuse my bad english. I speak to you through the google translator. :P
