The Oculus Rift pre-orders are live and once again, and a good part of the internet is kind of in flames. The future of the gaming industry comes at a steep price – $599. Never mind the fact that the Oculus Rift also demands high-end PCs to run. But, is virtual reality really the next phase of evolution for the gaming industry? Some seem to think so. Others… not so much.
Some people are upset.
Others are a bit more hyperbolic. But pictures and gifs always score bonus points.
And some are outright skeptical of virtual reality as a whole.
Shakespeare once said, “Brevity is the soul of wit.”
Some are forced to face reality.
Developers even have a hard time stomaching the price point.
If the creator of Minecraft can’t afford it…
The Oculus Rift has some in a poetic mood.
Others in a more playful mood.
But, Oculus Rift still has its supporters.
Regardless of what the rest of the internet thinks, what do you think about the Oculus Rift? Is it really the next step of gaming evolution? Or is it destined to be damned to obscurity?
The Oculus Rift is the first VR headset to deliver a release date and price point. But, with PlayStation VR and the HTC Vive on the way, how will Oculus Rift handle the competition? Showing their cards this early may certainly spell bad news for Oculus Rift, giving Sony and HTC the ability to one-up their product. 2016 has just started and its already shaping up to be an interesting year for virtual reality. Is 2016 truly the year of VR?
