Oculus Touch might be $400, would you still buy it?

Since Oculus can price Touch controllers as high as they want, knowing that without it people with the Rift cannot have the "full VR experience" and they will probably buy it anyway. If it's more than $200 I won't buy it for sure. What about you?

Anyone have an omni or virtualizer yet?

Saw some articles on preorders shipping at the start of the year for omni, but there hasn't been a whole lot of ship news for any omni treadmill yet.Just wondering if anyone actually has one, and has used it with cv1 or the vive.

Oculus Touch Pre-Order Resevation - Poll/Thoughts

Cable breakout connector

I'm really surprised, given the thought that went into the rest of the design, that the Rift cable doesn't have a break out connector, just about where the cable attaches to the head strap. It would have made storing the Rift, somewhere safe, like in...
