Price unconfirmed but they have said they are going to sell at cost, so I imagine around the £400 mark personally.

Two? now that would be cool, quadraphonic stereo for those with eyes in the back of their head. Simultaneously watching your six while attacking the guy in front. :lol:

I held off this for so long but I just couldn't ignore it any longer so I finally purchased my rift and first impressions (terrifying) I booted up "Ultimate booster" and "no limits 2 roller coaster" and was left a nervous wreck lol, it really did frighten me and my first thought was to get rid. Curiosity forced me to continue and try other experiences so I browsed through the oculus store and installed a few bits including Lucky's tale which was bloody brilliant, I then tried "Starfighter Arduxim" and liked it although looking down made my legs go jelly lol.
Next up was"Apollo 11 experience which wasn't that impressive for me except for the bit where I again turned to jelly when the view switched to the top of the rocket and again I stupidly looked down although the feeling wasn't as scary as the first two outing in my VR world.
Then I was blown away with Aerofly FS2 after increasing the resolution with the oculus debug tool, this thing really felt like I was flying a plane and while it's far from perfect it left me with a very big smile on my face ;-))

Then the experiences just got better, I tried "The body VR" and was left with my jaw touching the floor, for those who don't know, it's a journey through the human body while some geezer explains what's going on, awesome visuals. then it was time to play a game in the human body in the form of "Incell" where you race the viruses and have to beat them to stop them from destroying the cell. I could go on about other very good experiences I've now had but I'll just list the ones I thought was bloody awesome.

Showdown

Seal delivery vehicle

Farlands

Thrills and chills roller coasters.....phew!!!

Lost

So, after coming very close to selling my rift on day one I now couldn't imagine not having it. Share your experiences and let me know what other games, apps, experiences are worth a go.
Oh, just one other thing, can someone tell me how to get Assetto Corsa working in VR? when I start it I just get it on a cinema style screen. Thanks.

Got it off Amazon for 549 may get the touch controllers later down the line.

Been playing Elite Dangerous and Eve Valkyrie, both stunning in VR, the sheer scale of objects and planets are truly mind blowing, to be honest it feels a little scary for me lol, Dirt Rally is fun too.

Some more free stuff that I thought was really good....

Senza Peso, this was stunning.

Calling all VR fans, you guys just gotta try AIRCAR, it's only a VR experience demo but you do have full control of your vehicle, absolutely bloody stunning. Download it for free, available on the Oculus store.
