    Came out the other day.

    I'm waiting to see if Dell (thanks a million @Mlaw) offers it, as I have a 250 buck credit with them.

    Looking to procure this very soon. :grad:

    Awesome! Looking forward to some Dorb-reviews!

    Where you sold by the shark tank experience you had? Where was that? I need to get to a place I can try this.

    The only drawback is that it will take away some of my time here. So instead of posting for about 15 hours a day here,
    Maybe now i'll only post 12 or 13 hours. LOL

    Hate to be the wet blanket but the controllers [playstation move] are old tech that don't really work that well with VR. Early reviews have been mixed at best. Steam Vive is probably the best first gen VR experience.

    A very light comfortable tv and you see nothing but the game and in 3d.

    Maybe but you need a specialized computer to run it, has an extremely complex setup, and it will end up costing 2k or more.

    Why would Dell offer it? I don't think that's ever going to happen unless the nature of Dell has changed?(Decided to check out Dell's site, they're selling games/console stuff now. That is weird)

    Anyway I've tried out all the various VR devices. none are worth buying to me at this time

    Isn't this the reason they came out with the upgraded PS4? I'd be afraid my regular PS4 was too underpowered to run it.

    I had a buddy talk about his experience with a vive, it sounded like someone describing a life changing psychedelic experience. It was a wierd conversation and I was envious.

    Really fascinated by this stuff. Cool as shit time to be alive right?!?!?

    Ive also had really good luck with Sony products and they will be putting out a continous stream of new games and travel adventures.

    Still too early as tech for me to jump into. I'll buy when I can virtually fuck this:

    That's pretty much accurate. Plus the Vive needs sensors mounted on the walls and 5 X 5 sq ft open space. Any high end gaming PC will run it. I'm actually really curious to try the PlayStation VR firsthand. The controller situation on it has me more than hesitant to buy one plus I don't have a PS4.

    Second gen VR is going to be when this stuff really goes bat shit crazy imo. But I still might buy a Vive anyway.
