as long as i cant play skyrim with it, i dont give a flying f.ck. its actually less preferable since it needs a dedicated support for a game. sony's headset is a better product to get imo. but as a concept, yea oculus is great.

Once you have a go of this you will be hooked. And is that a camera in the Oculus logo?

Sony's headset has a smaller horizontal FOV... they say it looks like you're looking at binoculars from the wrong end. The rift has a 90 degree FOV. That's why it's better.

And I'm getting one to do my honour's project with next year :D
