    Possibly. . .I spent $700 on my Dell U3415w monitor for my desktop last year. I haven't tested any of them out yet, but I would really like to do so before making a final choice. If I can use it as a monitor for games that don't support it then I maybe more inclined to get one.

    Wasn't going to, then got a new pc ant i'm thinking about it. I still of the idea that VR isn't the future and it's just a more expensive curiosity such as motion controls. Plus there aren't really a lot of game games, just some test or experiences. Really don't know.

    I'm really thinking about getting VR, but at the moment it's too expensive for me and I want to wait what is coming up before making a final decision.

    Not in the next 2,3 years.

    .I believe VR isn't completed yet. and will have lots of issue to come( health issues and stuff), a full gaming experience is still far away.

    Now just the early stage of vr, it is expensive and not compatible for most of the devices. Maybe should get it when it is popular.

    As soon as it gets a little cheaper,I love VR,I have tried it in stores and would love to have my own headset but it's too expensive at the moment,I might get an Oculus Rift DK2 on ebay,about £350 but I'd prefer the HTC Vive

    Start rolling out more AAA titles and not a bunch of random indie games and I might.

    I still feel like it could be a fad and not really take off, it has potential though for sure.

    Absolutely will get one, but I think at least after 1-2 more years.
    VR still have lots of issues need to improve : price tag, portability, convenience, comfort when gaming, ...
    And when all those big issues are fixed, VR will be a BOOOOM, just like smartphone did with our lives.

    i'm not buying into it yet just bc i don't think it's well developed enough, but i'm definitely excited to see where it goes. will be very interesting to see if this takes off and becomes the standard, or if it's just a current fad.

    I want it, but right now it's not in the budget. I tried out vr at CC 2016. It was on the vive and I played rick and morty. It was awesome and I'm going to start saving up for it soon!

    Only if there's a good affordable one, and if there are any gnarley exclusives, cuz I don't see a point in playing a game with a disadvantage in exchange for it looking good.
     
  13. i personally don't like vr i'd prefer a good tv screen

    No vr for me, I have glasses so they would interfere. But mostly I'm lacking the funds to chase into it.
     
  15. I've been thinking about getting the HTC Vive for a while now. I've already upgraded to components which support the Vive, but the price tag on the Vive itself (in terms of Canadian dollars) is a bit too steep. So all in all, I'm probably going to get it once it comes down in price, and more apps/games have been developed/tested for it.

    So in simple terms -- am I getting VR? My answer, for right now, is no. Like I said, when it (VR) is tested and developed further, then I'll probably get the Vive.

    I'll wait to see where it's at in a few years. For the moment it's not worth the investment IMO.

    I'm interested in the Hololens though...

    Honestly I'm going to wait a bit on it. VR is still in its early stages, hoping the open source VR initiative works as I'm not to big of a fan of the exclusivity of many of the current VR kits.

    Tbh I haven't really experienced it yet myself but it doesn't seem to be very necessary at the moment either. I can see the appeal but I can most definitely do without.

    I own an occulus and I love it. I need to get a controller though now to make things easier and better.

    I think I will wait a while. If more and more gets to VR I will buy one than. Don't think there are enough options for the price now..
