Day One With the Brand New Oculus Rift DK2: the Good, the Ugly and the Games 48

muterobert (2927951) writes Paul James goes hands on with one of the first next-gen Oculus Rifts in the wild: "After much hacking (and some kind developer linkage) I stepped into a DK2 enabled version of Technolust and lost myself utterly! The stunning attention to detail, neon on black really lets the OLED panel shine here. In fact, this experience was the closest I think I've ever some to presence in virtual reality thus far. Leaning in to check the myriad retro objects, gawking at the lighting and just generally being blown away by the experience. This game was fabulous on the DK1, it's utterly compelling now."

    hypnosis adventures?

    Why does it have to be games? Wouldn't it be fun to use hypnosis in order to have a 3D adventure?

  • Had my notification of shipping last week - hoping will be here soon.

    If you have the DK1 and want something new to try with it, and have the $$ - this is the daddy of FPV remote controlled fun - I've been loving it for a good long while now. : http://emrlabs.com/index.php?p... [emrlabs.com]
  • These guys need to hurry up and release this thing ... I need my face closer to my computer screen.
  • He decries the lack of games. Does he not understand the purpose of Developer Kits? The whole point, as I understand it, is that Games Developers should get a DK2 and Make Their Game Compatible With It.

    You shouldn't be a gamer buying a DK2 and then pouting that there are currently no games supporting it. You wouldn't do the same if you had your hands on a Developer version of a next gen console.

When you are working hard, get up and retch every so often.
