Christ why don't you have a sook. You do understand you can like and play on different platforms you don't have to be just a pc gamer, grow up.



I just said I wasn't getting worked up, I'm actually pretty chill but what you said wasn't really warranted tbh. No need to get hostile with me.



You're far from chilled attacking posters on the assumption they have vendetta aginist x platform people can have an opinion on a product platform that's negative without them baselessly bashing it. By you a person needs an id detailing all platforms they enjoy.

You're attacking me technically in the vein of your insults from your previous post tbh.

You seem to have stored a vendetta against me by the sounds of it as well.

I didn't actually know anything about him even gaming on a PC at all because he made no prior mention at all and most people have some form of platform id from their avatar to their sig to their profile, that's the nrom on most other forums as well.

Again no need to be riled up.

Sounds like you have a victim mentality.

I dont get it. Why is it so expensive? I mean its just a screen, a hunk of plastic and a HDMI socket??

Facebook needs to make its 2 billion dollar investment back. They are right that they aren't making money.



Actually i changed my mind. I didnt know it had 2 screens and came with xbox controller, headset and camera. Still kinda expensive though.





I don´t know, if all of that stuff is really included but somebody broke down the 600$ pricetag to this:
$60 - Xbox One Controller
$25 - Xbox Wireless Adapter
$95 - Tracking Camera
$30 - Oculus Remote
$60 - Eve Valkyrie
$30 - Lucky's Tale
$300 - Oculus Rift headset
If this is true or somewhat close then Oculus/Facebook seriously fucked up this launch...How bout nope to xbox controller? nope to wireless adapter? nope to eve? nope to lucky´s tale? Hell even the Camera isn´t neccessary...



      
Yup...RO friggin rocked

Yeah, it kinda is, how do you think tracking works - without it, headset becomes just a head on a stick - this way you can actually move forward/backward or lean left/right, which is a big part of experience.

Not even close microsoft are in a partnership and sell the controller and adapter close to cost of production if not below, same goes with the games theyre just promotion items and cost them nothing,

You do not need the camera to play a game in VR. Does the camera enhance the experience? yes, but it is not neccessary.

There's no way the bolded is even remote close to those numbers. The XB1 controler and Wireless Adapter are probably something like total production costs + $5, Eve Valkyrie is probably something small like $10 and since Lucky's Tale is Oculus exclusive it is probably part of the deal Oculus and the devs made, I'd say $5 tops.

When game companies bundle 3rd party products such as those 4 products with their product they never pay full price, not even close.
