This is what we need to keep the advancements coming and the prices down. The Vive and Rift need a price drop and we should be hearing about gen 2 by now, or at least a 1.5 update.

Gen1 is way overpriced. Cost of production is less than half of what either HTC, or Oculus is charging. Their raking in the money right now. More competition is desirable.

I don't know what the production costs were, but i'm sure they are less now. But still, they have to pay for all that R&D out of the markup. Even if they sold them for 100$ they'd still be losing money for years to come.

It may be so, but I doubt it. I think this is how they're trying to cut through all their past controversy and miss steps, and try to get their dwindling foothold back in the market place.

I hope so. I'd be really sad if Zenimax manages to single-handedly derail the VR revolution.
