this seems very interesting and i was thinking about get one myself. will this change pc gaming experience a lot? would it work on 3d movie play as well or just on certain pc games that support it?
is it like totally different from nvidia stereoscopic 3d play?

I am not sure about 3D movies but I am with you on wanting to get one. I have a Sony3D virtual Display which is very similar to the OR but the OR looks like it would work so much better for gaming and its getting a fair amount of support on the PC,

That;s just the development kit. I'd wait for the consumer version since it will be in HD. My roommate has one of the development kits and while it is pretty neat and all it's like playing a game through a screen door.

Gamefaqs game rating system : 10 = Best Game Ever. 8-9. Crushing dissapointment. Below 8 :Total Garbage. This is getting ridiculous. people agreeing so far 105

Yeah, as long as the dev kit and the final product are going to be about the same price, you'd do better to wait for the final product unless you're actually a developer and you need one now so you can code for it...

no. no one ever in the history of gaming has ever heard of the Oculus Rift

/facepalm

Anyways, yeah it's ment to be kinda amazing. Remember watching a video where TotalBiscuit had worn the HD prototype or something, and he said it's the most amazing thing he's ever used. Just don't wear one standing up.

Pointing out your stupidity is not trolling

I played War Thunder on it. Was pretty cool after the initial disorientation.

Once it comes out I'm gonna have a 30 hour long Euro Truck Simulator 2 marathon.

It's very good. I played a little gauntlet run game on it and it played amazingly well. I didn't feel sick while playing it. However I did want to actually walk forward in real life. The depth perception in the game was also really well done too. It actually felt you were up really high.
