Oculus Rift Won't Include DOOM 3

The Oculus Rift Website announces that the DOOM 3 BFG Edition will not ship with their VR headsets as a backer reward as originally planned, saying: "Unfortunately, we’ve been informed that DOOM 3 BFG Edition will not support the Rift development kit by the time we begin shipping." They are offering a choice of alternate rewards to replace the VR-enabled edition of id' most recent DOOM game with the choice of a Steam wallet credit, an Oculus store credit, or a full pledge refund for those who feel this is a deal-breaker. Thanks NeoGAF via VG247.

Interesting with the displays! Whats the res on the displays?

on the note of 3D not being the "main point of the Rift"

I respectfully disagree there

Seems to me like comfortable 3D is a big sell point on this. I wouldn't purchase this without the 3D, and I have a feeling a majority of the early retail purchasers expect that as well..

I would go as far to say that the very fact it has two built in displays should infer that 3D is indeed a very main point of the Rift. As a single display unit is possible for a headset with a gyroscope.

Arent the 3D, Gyro the real bread and butter of the unit? What happened to the built in sound system, that still in there?

I have a feeling 3D through these doesn't hurt nearly as much as staring at one image being strobed faster than we can perceptibly see while we don plastic sheets over our eyes to read the strobed imagery.
