What is VR?

VRFocus Writes: "There are two ways we can define Virtual Reality (VR) right now. One is the realistic, scientific description of the various means and methods that power the technology. But this tech is all about slipping into new worlds; do we really want to talk about the science behind it? The other is to paint a picture in your mind of what this enticing new platform could have in store for videogames and beyond in the next few years. I’ll go with that." (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Culture, Half-Life 2, PC, Team Fortress 2, Tech)

Is Vr the new "in thing" Just like 3d tvs were for awhile?

Theres no doubt in my mind that the Rift makes giant leaps when it comes to immersion, personally i love my test version and i will buy retail edition on day 1. But will it take off? That remains to be seen, i certainly hope so!

Any idea what the retail price is going to be?

I hope that it isnt like 3dtvs pricewise because you were talking thousands more for a 3d tv to begin with :/

That's going to be the main thing isn't it, the price, I think they should sell it cheap for a short while to get the ball rolling, the more people that own one while its new and hot, the more people will be spreading the word of mouth about how awesome it is.

Alternatively they could do a huge push when it comes to actually showing it off, take it to game shows and set up demo versions of the final product in stores etc.

It's very similar to the 3DS in the sense that you have to play it for yourself to experience the effect, no youtube video or screenshot will do this.
