Oh god, BF4 with the Rift would be amazing.

I could just picture seeing a rocket whiz by your head while wearing those, watching a building collapse right in front of you, jumping into a jet in first person view, or playing with friends online and jumping in the passenger seat of a jeep as you ride through crazy warzones.... Ahh, the possibilities...

I was lucky enough to get a quick ~30 second peek at what the Rift is like in action. It seriously feels like you've been transported to a different world. If BF4 shipped with full Rift support, I'll shell out the $300 for the Rift without batting an eyelash.

Same with Bioshock: Infinite.

@Pandamobile - Wow that's awesome! I've certainly been interested in it. Already heard it can be used with Mirror's Edge and Skyrim... If BF4 gets support, I'll be shelling out the money for one as well.

Instant Matrix experience. My wallet is so ready for that. Anyone remembers The Real Adventures of Johnny Quest on Cartoon Network back when it was a super cool network? I always wished I could experience that life and Oculus Rift looks to be delivering exactly that.

Jets would benefit hardcore from the Rift... no more switching views to try to keep up in a dog fight. It would feel hella authentic.

Sounds cool but how about paying someone with those skills instead?

Cheap assholes

Exactly! Probably so they can blame him when it needs a day 1 patch to work!

Roll back time to when I did my thesis and I would have jumped at the chance for something like this.

I would get my thesis done as I would have anyway, but I'd also come away with 'triple-A' dev experience, a bunch of contacts in the industry, a foot-in-the-door, and all the knowledge I could soak up from a group of highly talented individuals. It's just a win-win in my mind. Good on DICE for offering up what I see as nothing other than a golden ticket.

As for the commercial side of this, it's looking to be a purely R&D venture. I doubt whatever is produced would find it's way into Frostbite unless it was passed by the team's engine architects.

Hmm
Gamers are ready!

This is strictly for implementing head tracking... The Rift should offer 3d/2d out of the box for all games.

OMG OMG OMG that is going to be insane

Wonder what it would be like getting your dog tags taken with rift on, I sometimes get a fright if im tuned into the game and I get my tags taken, if i had rift on i could see me having a full blown heart attack.

Rift + Battlefield....I just ruined my pants.

This is great in vehicles, but as INFANTRY...
...I hope it is possible to look around as in the TF2 Rift demos.
