"Instead, the Samsung phone will be placed directly into a slot within the headset itself."
Or you could just go cheap and glue an S5 to your forehead :-D

One more overstated fanboy. Oculus hasn't changed squad and until/unless they release a hugely successful commercial product they never will. Can you get anyone from Sony on record stating that the Rift has anything to do with their development? Do you have any background indicating that didn't begin R&D BEFORE Rift?

Exactly. Sony has had Morpheus in development for some time. All that Luckey did was realize what many other people realized--it doesn't take a rocket scientist--that OLED technology finally makes it feasible. It wasn't like he invented the concept.

Man, this article is wrong in so many ways and sounds like the author didn't do that much research. Firstly, the Gear VR is the headset that has a slot that you can place a Galaxy phone into, not the Gear Glass. Samsung has already patent the Gear Glass design and it looks a bit like the Scouters in Dragonball Z. Another very important information that has been left out is that Samsung is partnering with Oculus Rift to make this VR head set.

Please don't let all this VR hype turn into what I suspect will happen to smartwatches. I'd like to see a large market, with lots of competition to drive prices down (even if oculus promises to do that without competition)

Ahhh, and it won't take Sony and Samsung 3 years of ass dragging to get a finalized product that is superior to the Oculus VR in every way out to consumers! WIN-WIN for the consumer...LOSE FAIL for Oculus :p
