599 bucks. Lol. It would be more than a 1000 Australian, after they add the insane import taxes and etc. FML. Just another toy I won't be able to afford for awhile. hehe

I'm not even confident that occulus rift will be the best VR to buy.

If I were in the market to buy one of these things, I'd wait til at least another set comes out. They're banking on your lack of options in their price range. People willing to spend 400 on a headset now might be willing to drop 600 because of lack of competition being available right now.

It's a long wait if you didn't jump on it (and you want one).
If I were to order one yesterday it would have come in May.
now I bet it's June.

My CPU, an i7 3770 black, is too slow according to the app.
To upgrade I would have to get an newer gen Motherboard I guess.

SOOO I wait.

Yep. I think my 8350 is enough. But, I'm going to need a new gpu, cos my 680 won't cut it. Better to wait till HTC vive is out. I bet valve is going to bundle it with new HL, Team Fortress and Portal. I have been playing around with a decent google cardboard setup and even that gives me tingles.Forget gaming, some of these VR Porn movies are just insane. Can' wait these things to become more affordable. It's a good era to be a gamer or a perv :D .

Lol I was right. It's actually over 1000 AUD after taxes and shipping charges. Talk about getting screwed.

I would never buy a VR device for 1000 bucks. That's just beyond stupid. Besides, I have this baby to watch VR porn if I need to: http://www.homido.com/en. I usually hate watching porn, but VR porn just takes it to another level man. I would like a VR set and new GPU to try out ARK on VR though. There's a rumor going on that valve VR set would be much cheaper and would likely be bundled with Portal 3, HL3 and TF3. One can only hope. :)
