I tried the Oculus at PAX Australia. It was really awesome. Can't wait to open my wallet and throw money at them to give me one!

In my eyes, the Oculus Rift is the real next-gen gaming tech. PS4 and Xbox One are nice advancements but pale to the avenues the Oculus opens. Rumors of cost subsidizing sweetens the prospect further.

I have a Rift sitting here on my desk. After playing with it for a little over a month, I can say with certainty that this little gadget is The Next Big Thing. Yeah, right now the tracking is a little drifty and the resolution is pretty low (720p panel split between the two eyes.) but when the consumer edition comes out sporting 6 DOF magnetometer tracking and a 1200p screen, it really is going to change the way people consume media.

Agreed. I saw a virtual movie theater in a video demo for the Rift...I can't wait to see what the Rift community thinks of next. To give a sense of creative scale, imagine Skyrim mod enthusiasm for something like the Rift. Yes, I had used the word Rift in ever sentence. Somebody is excited about the Rift.

 
I am also VERY eager to get the retail version!!!
Praying for a Half-Life 3 Oculus Rift Experience.
Bioshock Infinite would be cool too!

I have a question for the makers/developers... Can you use it to watch 3D BluRay movies too?

Also, between Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo one of the three needs to jump on this bandwagon ASAP before the other companies beat them to it!

Combining HD, 3D and VR I can imaging the possibilities and I'm very excited about it. And excited to try it!
