    My brother has 2 occulus dev kits and does a lot of work on them for other companies but i've yet to try it.
    Will have to borrow one for a try I think, but even if I like it £500 is a lot.

    Why does VR now seem to mean having a small screen 4-inches away from your face? What's VR about that?

    Once it gets adequate support, higher res, a lower price along with gpus that are moderately priced and able to power vr.

    Errr. Yes.

    But not until next year when the prices hopefully come down a bit.

    Definitely gonna buy a VR-solution at some point, but definitely not from lying scumbags that sold their souls to Facebook.

    Re: QOTW: Are you planning on buying a virtual reality headset?

    I was about to pre-order the Oculus, mainly to enhance Elite: Horizons, when I saw the price, so I bought a 27" 4K monitor instead. £100 lower and I'd have bitten. However, since then, Oculus Rift support for Elite has started looking iffy, so perhaps it was for the best. I'm still very interested in VR, but I'm not going to be an early adopter, at least until it's more affordable.

    Edit: It seems that worries regarding Oculus Rift support for Elite: Dangerous are just fud.

    Maybe in a year or two when it's matured a bit and prices come down.

    No interest whatsoever, I'd only be interested in a Holodeck.

    No. Perhaps when the headset becomes no more than a pair of sunglasses.
