Oculus Rift

This little piece of, upcoming, technology is a game changer. Literally. It goes by the name of the Oculus Rift and it is simply put the most sophisticated piece of VR technology that has been created and is being created at this time. It is a headset that boasts a perfect view around you unlike the competing market. After a successful kickstarter back in 2012 the expect it to be released to the consumers later this year. While Game developers can still purchase the dev build now so as to make the games compatible early on. The game I am aware of that WaR knows of and is currently compatible is a game by the name of Doom. This is entirely for the purpose of helping the devs reach compatibility with their own games. I don't know about any of you but this little piece of tech looks like the next step.

Well considering that the Rift is supposed to use the same tech as our smartphones and tablets the fact that they are mass producing the tech for them over in china I would estimate 200-300 united states dollars.

I hope so, I wouldn't want to pay anymore than $300 for it I think.

Or do I
