Short Bytes: In his recent tweet, Luckey, CEO of Oculus, has mentioned about the launching of pre-orders of Oculus rift soon in the upcoming year of 2016 after the holidays. However, due to VR’s only compatibility with upcoming Samsung devices, a restriction will be put on the purchasing power of the consumers.
Further in his another tweet, Luckey shared,
However, fingers are still crossed over the pricing of this VR device. Though Luckey has only hinted about the pricing in one of his tweets but the success of Oculus Rift VR headset will largely depend on the price offered by the company. However, In a review by TIME last month, they revealed that the upcoming gear would not cost much and also boost the gaming experience of the users because of fast applications and easy setup. But on the downside, the upcoming VR headset will only be compatible with upcoming Samsung phones which poses restriction in owning and using the device.
A lot of buzz have already been created around the VR market after a number of showcases, trailers, presentations and teasers of these new devices. It has further added up the desperation among the consumers who have been waiting to own a device like this.
What do you think? Is it Oculus rift worth buying seeing its compatibility with Samsung devices?
