Oculus Rift: 11 Interesting Facts about Virtual Reality Gaming: Page 10 of 11

Looking forward to Oculus Rift
11 things you may not know about VR

2. It’s affordable

(Sort of)

Oculus Rift is being optioned as a “premium product”. This means companies are betting that customers are willing to pay more than they usually would for a gaming console. This makes sense as this new gaming experience is generating a lot of interest, however there are few flaws in Oculus’ way of thinking.

The Oculus Rift system will come in at around $599.00 US. This is quite expensive for the casual gamer, but not much more than what a dedicated gamer would be willing to pay for new and exciting tech. However the problem there lies in compatibility.

Even though companies such as ASUS are ready to go with their “Oculus Ready” computers, these on average cost roughly $1000.00 US. Is Oculus in demand? Yes. Will the supply meet the demand? More than likely. Can the demand afford it or do they even want to? That’s still to be seen.

Ouch…

I know about this gaming console in the 90s. Then it was a radically new concept in a gaming industry. But more popular were portable game consoles. Therefore, many have chosen them instead of this game console. Now VR games are very popular. A level of a virtual world in modern virtual reality helmets is much higher. But the cost of high-quality virtual reality helmets is high. In cheap helmets, you can only play low-quality games. A great alternative are the centers of virtual reality. For example, the center of virtual reality in Melbourne - https://virivr.com.au/. Here for a small fee, you can play quality VR games.
