Well the days of Lawnmower Man are finally upon us, well almost. You can now pre-order your Oculus Rift VR Headset which begins shipping on March 26th.
However, you might want to hold off on this unproven piece of tech since the price will be $599.99, and for that you get the head set, an Xbox One controller and three games.
So is this all worth it? Well, for me, nope. I’m not big on VR, at least not in any way that is technologically possible (to get me excited for VR think Star Trek’s holo room). It’s always fun to be the first person with a new piece of tech, $600 to be an early adapter on something that may or may not fail is a bit scary. If this doesn’t sell well then there won’t be too much software support for it and you’ll end up with a $600 paperweight.
So what is your take dear reader? Are you excited for the new age of gaming? Did you already pre-order the Rift? Let us know in the comments below.
