Half-Life VR For Oculus Rift Looks Epically Amazing, New Video Showcases Head & Gun Tracking

DSOGaming writes: "Nathan Andrews has released a new video, showcasing his Half-Life Oculus Rift mod. Half-Life VR adds full head tracking and weapon tracking to Half-Life 2 in preparation for the Oculus Rift dev kit launch. In this video Nathan Andrews is using two hillcrest trackers, the same ones John Carmack used in his E3 and quakecon demos of the early rift prototype. This is full 360 degree, 1 to 1 tracking on both the head and weapon, there are no gimmicks or constraints between where you aim and your field of view. Nathan Andrews mod appears to be also compatible with FakeFactory's Cinematic Mod. This looks epic, so go ahead and watch it. VR is almost upon us!"

I really wonder how much this is going to cost? If the price is right and if it works as well as they say it does I might get it!

The consumer version will be $200-$300 last I heard.

This looks so promising.

I really don't believe that. Right now the official developer price is $300 with 'only' a shared 1280x800-Display, that is 640x800 Pixel per eye. They plan to improve it for the retail version which will up the price a bit, plus they have no competition whatsoever. I believe they will end up selling it at $500. They will want to make some money from it. It will still be cheap for what it offers. I just hope next gen consoles will be compatible with it. I'm kind of glad now that I have a comfortably big space in the living room.

Their aim is to have it between $200-$300.

“We're trying to get the best parts, and after that we turn that over to our lead engineer Jack McCauley - he was the lead engineer on all the Guitar Hero games - and it's his job to get on to the factories to give it to us for whatever we need it to be. He knows exactly how you hit that market. It'll definitely be affordable. Nobody is going to buy a $1000 head-mounted display, but a $200 device? People will buy that. I mean, our developer kits are $300, and I actually think our consumer version is going to be cheaper than that - almost certainly. But even at $300 it's really quite a bargain.”

looks like it gonna cost less than 400 schmuck$ .

this is way healthier than "play sitting", not to mention the EMF pollution emitted by the goggz . .

look at the guy standing and spining around like a complete idiot lmao.

this looks a complete joke to me.

Pandamobile1263d ago

I really don't think anyone gives a rat's ass about your opinion when this product is being backed by some of the biggest names in the industry.

papashango1263d ago

So valve and epic supported kinect?

News to me

N0S3LFESTEEM1263d ago

Kinect looks far worse... ps3 has a glowing lollipop... and wii has the waggle. Compared to those this looks bad ass.

Plagasx1263d ago

Keep thinking like that and we'll never move forward.

PhantomTommy1263d ago

This really makes Kinect and Move look like an absolute joke. Awesome stuff!

Pandamobile1263d ago

Yep, leave it to a small team in the PC hacker/modder community to create something more groundbreaking and awesome than two billion dollar enterprises.

UltraVegito1263d ago

Next Gen consoles really need to support these.

This has some potential.

N0S3LFESTEEM1263d ago

If these ever did take off it has the possibility to challenge the TV market. Imagine if cable companies started utilizing it on sporting events.
