There's an analogue stick on the gun.

If only Microsoft and Sony had decided this tech was the future of gaming instead of waggle-control.

Nevermind, if enough games support this I'm getting this when I upgrade my PC - saves me buying a swanky new monitor too!

Cool :D

I'd love to try the Occulus Rift :D

All we need now are pain sensors so that when you get hit in the game it actually hurts you :twisted:

Unfortunately this kind of tech will only appeal to those who already play games, whereas all that waggling s**t appeals to any loon who likes to bounce around their lounge like a t**t... and that's a surprisingly expansive market.

Ive said it before but I think Oculus Rift is the most exciting thing to happen to video games in a long time. Never mind motion control, wii u or even the new xbox kinect. Oculus Rift can be a real game changer, combined with some 7.1 headphones to totally immerse you into a game. I am really excited about getting one of these.

Would be awesome to see it in Portal 2. Sooner they get the production model out the better :D

The only decent thing to come from Kickstarter so far.

I beg to differ..... Dead State, Chivalry, OUYA, Planetary Annihilation, Star Citizen, FTL, ShadowRun & Oculus Rift have all been backed by me.

Heh i went on about VR for ages only like a year or 2 before the Rift was even announced, looks like it could be shaping up nicely.

I just wonder if it's more of an experience for certain games, rather than a thing you could constantly use.. like if you played fast paced FPS, would you use it in multiplayer/co-op? or would it simply be easier on the eyes and better to just not use it and look at your monitor?.
