Don't forget this is not a stand alone device...you need a Pc with high end specs to run it:
"In order to work, the Rift must be connected by a cable to a PC running Microsoft Windows that will run the software. This computer should be equipped with a powerful GPU at least equivalent to a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 or AMD R9 290, and a CPU at least equivalent to Intel i5-4590" (Wikipedia)
If Sony can issue their VR headset at a lower price and have it work correctly with the PS4 they will make a killing with a bundle way under the 1000 dollar mark... Oculus fails in the sense that making a device with such a price and high hardware requirements will keep it caged to only hardcore PC gamers...
Honest Realist, 06 Jan 2016Beautiful price point!LOL, no wonder why you like Apple if you pay 500 bucks for a piece of plastic.
