Oculus Rift Headset; Touch Controllers (with all of the original accessories!) $399.99

The new Oculus Touch bundle that is on sale right now for $399.99 does NOT include many of the accessories that were originally included if you were to buy the Oculus headset and the Oculus Touch controllers individually. Mainly the XBox One controller, the Oculus Media Remote and the RockBand VR cradle.

I found that if you go to BestBuy's website and view the individual product page for either the.....

Oculus Rift Headset:

or the Touch Controllers:
https://www.bestbuy.com/site/ocul.../5587706.p

....it will automatically create a bundle of the two SKUs for the $399.99 price of the discounted Touch Bundle (see attached photo). As someone who desperately wanted to track down these accessories for the discounted price, I wanted to share my findings in case any other SDers are looking for the same thing.

It does not. You need a powerful PC

You need a PC with approximately the following:
1. CPU - at least an i5 or i7 from the 2000 generation or newer. i3 from the newest couple generations is probably fine as well.
2. A good graphics card. At least a Nvidia GTX 1060 (the kind with 6GB RAM, not 3) from the 1000 generation, or at least a 970 from the 900 generation. Or equivalent from AMD.
3. Lots of USB ports, with several of them USB 3.0. At least 2 USB 3.0.
4. 8GB RAM for most games, but some struggle a bit with that so probably 16GB

If you have the above, you can make it work pretty darn well. The Rift is well-designed to take advantage of super fancy systems with top end i7 processors and GTX 1080ti cards, but also to work on lower end systems with older CPUs and GTX 1060s and 970s.

I picked up the Eve Valkyrie bundle and returned after about a week and a half even after purchasing a handful of games. I think my expectations were just too high.

The resolution was probably the biggest factor for me, while up close objects looks great, objects in the distance are just too blurry and it bothered me too much. It's really noticable on Google Earth VR for example and Robo Recall. This is even after I had all game settings maxed out on my GTX 1080, i7-7700K gaming rig.

Some of the games are awesome but very short, Batman VR for example lasted an hour or so. I noticed too that in games such as Rec Room, it is awesome, but filled with kids bitching and swearing at eachother over their microphones (which are built into the headsets and I didn't realize this until playing)

Maybe i'd give it another try down the line if it got cheaper, I just think that for $400 + tax, it is a novelty that soon wears off and would gather dust on the shelf.

Save your money, if not for the fact VR sucks now then for the fact you will be able to grab these for 300 again in a couple months

min specs:

Graphics Card NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti / AMD Radeon RX 470 or greater
Alternative Graphics Card NVIDIA GTX 960 / AMD Radeon R9 290 or greater
CPU Intel i3-6100 / AMD FX4350 or greater
Memory 8GB+ RAM
Video Output Compatible HDMI 1.3 video output
USB Ports 1x USB 3.0 port, plus 2x USB 2.0 ports
OS Windows 8.1 or newer

Xbox One X will support Mixed Reality Headsets (support expected by early 2018), but probably not VR Headsets unfortunately. It's not a hardware thing however, probably more to do with licensing.

It's so odd that some people aren't impressed. With everyone I know that has tried mine, it was a game changer. Even the DK1 never failed to impress and it had much worse limitations than the retail models.

Don't get me wrong, it was very impressed with the demo at the BB store and the first few hours of use, but the more titles I played, the more of an issue the blurriness was for me. I wasn't bothered by the screen door effect just by blurry items in the distance. It is also a big turn off at the price of a lot of the content, expect $59.99 for most AA titles.

Ultimately it came down to how much I would use it and I just didn't think it would get the use to justify the cost in the end. I battled with the question every day "is it worth it" but in the end, for me at least, the answer was no.
