How will Oculus compare to other VR headsets due to come out

I was reading this feature: http://www.stuff.tv/vr-challengers/feature

The features that I'm really hoping make it to CV1 would be:

1. InfinitEye’s two 1280x800 displays and Fresnel lenses provide over twice that, drastically increasing your peripheral vision to 210º and ramping up the feeling of immersion.

2. Fove is the VR headset that watches you; with its eye-tracking technology.

These features plus any others that the guys add would be fantastic and really help with motion sickness and immersion. Does anyone know anything about these ?

Well, there was some intriguing speculation that the dimensions of the crescent bay unit would fit a 21:9 aspect screen, so it could potentially have a much wider FOV. What have those who have tried crescent bay reported in that regard? Wider FOV or just the same as DK2?

Lol what the hell are you on about?

Who mentioned the stupid note 4? or mobiles?

This is about the RIFT not gearVR and an apple version wouldn't be some iPhone thing like gear VR which is a separate discussion (gear VR vs Apple iPhone VR) this is about Oculus RIFT self contained super spec HMD vs a possible apple version. And apple would NOT sell it at close to cost like Oculus will with FB's money (CV1). They would gild it in aluminium and charge twice the price just cos it's 'trendy' lol.

If they sell phones at similar prices compared to the competitors why wouldn't they do the same for HMDs?

Think you'll find it's YOUR point that is moot. And with your username no wonder you are putting brand loyalty before comprehension. sorry.

You really seem to assume things from my username. 😄

tells me my point is moot for merely saying Apple wouldn't sell something cheap enough to hit the market that VR generally is aimed at to start with? (which is a fact btw)

That is not a fact, they have enough money to price their products competitively. (Like with the iphone)
