News Comments > Oculus Rift Price Discussed

I thought they said a couple weeks ago that one would need a GTX 970 to run it? That's $350 of the budget gone.

I find it hard to believe that anyone could build a full PC, including monitor, KB/M, and so on for $1500 and include a Oculus Rift. Maybe if they buy a piece of junk CPU and get the crapiest components. I smell bullshit.

I suppose that a person may not need a monitor if the RIFT can be used for Windows and such. Can anyone chime in on this? I wouldn't want to use the Rift for day to day desktop tasks.

CPU: $300
RAM: $100
Motherboard: $130
PSU: $100
GPU: $350
Case: $100
HDD: $80
Mouse: $50
Keyboard: $10
Monitor: $200

Total: $1420

Sure, a bit more could be scraped off but it would be a basic system even at these prices.

You can easily cut those prices down, here:

CPU: i5 $200
RAM: $60 for 8 gigs
Motherboard: $35
PSU: $35
GPU: $325
Case: $40
HDD: $80
------------
Mouse: $20
Keyboard: $10
Monitor: $100

Total Above Line: $775
Total everything: $905

Oculus doesn't need a monitor and you probably already have one.
K/M you probably already have one.

The system with the prices I mention will run games fine and dandy, you don't have to have expensive mb's and psu's.

That said, I don't know why they have to mention it like this, bundling it together. We have the pc, now what is your product cost? Thank you.

The price of the Witcher isn't described as $760, since you'll need a $700 pc to run it.

Not that I care... but did you even read the article? So she stated her opinion and it sounds dead on from what I know of the country. They pirate and reverse engineer everything. They have more rip off products than any other country yet we still do most of our business with them?

We do because they can make the qty needed at the price needed and as an extra bonus it keeps wages lower in the US.

Prices starting at $780...
Fuck it, I'm getting a PS4.
Or at least until AMD releases something on their end, competition supposed to lower prices and all that.

You could buy a card for $150 and get a PS4 equiv.

The next gen of vc I'm waiting for is the one that marries up with VR.

Don't worry about me, everyone has me on ignore like you directed them to years ago, right? RIGHT?

I just find it interesting you are a lib, you think things like GTA are fine, but this game, this is the one that crosses the line and censorship should kick in.

No matter what happens here, it isn't real, that is all that has to be factored in. Rate it, fine.

Will be interesting to see how many sites actually review it. I'm guessing many of them won't.

Finger's crossed for a Christian Gamer Review. Hope Mack does one to.

LOL to mass murder game, like almost all games I play are that and they say I'm the good guy doing so. At least this game knows how to call a spade properly.

Last but not least, this isn't real, it's a game.

A sortable list, with text and proper categorized tagging, context sensitive highlighting, and proper dependency links. An Inventory where you have to hover over everything to see what it is, is TOTAL SHIT. ^^

There isn't one that will satisfy all. There are plenty of people that like icon grids vs lists.

Why does every new game that comes out think we want to dig through list of inventory items (that are pages long),

Because they feel it works better that way with a controller. As much as they want to support the PC, they really like for us all to move to controllers. But that has to be one of the top reasons why people game on a PC. I say move consoles over to k/m!!!

Hope so, just bought it for $6 with this news. Played a little, looks to be a good 4-player local coop game on the HTPC.

I never once felt like I won any of my fights with skill, I never once aimed a sword blow or when fighting a group was able to execute a precise attack of one guy, block another and then maybe stun a third, it was not because I lacked the skill, it was because such moves are impossible in this game.

This is from his post in the thread on this video.

It just demonstrates how fucking stupid and idiotic he is. If he isn't winning fights due to skill...it is because of his lack of skill. Watching him fight is painful. He is awful at it and it's not due to the controls.

He can't defeat the Griffin on Easy and has to go back later after leveling up? Wow, just wow. I'm playing on the 2nd hardest difficulty and I'm always fighting stuff that is many levels higher than I am...and I win. Why? Because I don't suck and I use tactics and not just jump in flailing my sword around hoping for a hit. And I don't use the lock on target function.


I find a lot of reviewers movies and twitch streams are poor players, even the big one's. So yet another major variable that can skew scores.

I like Mac's reviews overall, not always in agreement, that would be like impossible, we are different people.

Have you ever played an F1 game? The tracks are not ovals.

Wrong wave length. It takes oval mentality into grand prix courses!

Face it, circle tracking racing always does poorly on gaming sites. Left turn, left turn, left turn.

It's narrow on that behalf, but we've been at this one for 15 years now, nothing is changing. I just snicker and use something like this when Snuggle Truck is brought up as a good game.

Same premise, each could be great, but we are supposed to make fun of some things, right? RIGHT?

Papy made great Nascar games, EA did what they did. I believe a good core of iracing is Papy people and that is where you are at if you are into it.

I can say some of the best times I had gaming was with Nascar Papy in the day with 6 systems setup racing with buds in Lan all night. When I go back home, they always want to go back to that time, but they are construction type workers and couldn't keep a pc running well for any period of time. This was why I was wondering if Project Cars was cross platform, between PC/Ps4 and Bone, perhaps the old timers could have rode once again.

After how bad 6 was they should be begging people to try the beta not asking people to pay for it.

For some reason I see the whole planet just sitting there and waiting for these fucks to actually make another good Heroes game. They simply can't seem to do it. Fumble after fumble.

I think where some use the words favorites, I think it is safe to say they have built up their rep from previous actions, allowing some leeway. There is no secret hand-shake, or group BN meetings on who we like or don't like. EA, I'd like to think if they made a fantastic game, we'd give them some credit for that.

To me reading here, it seems overall that it's gfx or nothing. I bet the game still looks darn good, but then comes in "how fun is it to play?".
