There used to be an amazing virtual reality thing called real life, but like the wii, kinect and ps move, it got old. Now that that joke has been removed, the Oculus Rift seems like it will become big. The problem is actually getting people to buy it. Actually, I lied. People will do anything for virtual reality in games. Therefore, the oculus rift is evil and will control our brains turning us into mindless zombies. Or will just be a cool virtual reality thing. Either way, those two realities sound pretty good.
Wow... Just wow... I can't even imagine what it must be like to use this... My only problem would be that I have glasses, and I'm not sure if I could wear the Oculus Rift over them... But I am definitely saving up for one of these when it comes out. New IPod in the future goes out the window in light of the Rift!
What, in my mind, saves this from being a gimmick is the fact that you get a free control vector out of it. Imagine your heads as another analog stick. Now we could use the mouse to control the crosshair while your head controls the screen. This means you could mine one thing while looking elsewhere. You could look over your shoulder for enemies as you mine.
Wow. I saw a TF2 game-play of this and thought "cool. They made my second-favorite game ever in VR. Maybe I'll buy it." Then I see this, and I'm like, "Now they made my #1 favorite game of all-time in VR?! I have to get it!" But I'm confused about something. In the game-plays I've seen of it, there are two screens, and it seems like it would be hard to play with like that. When you're actually wearing it, do you see the two screens, or is it some kind of optical illusion thing that makes it seem like one?

If you can't run 2 Minecrafts at the same time then this is not for you. Basically 3D is 2 images with slightly different angles, the Oculus Rift is no different so you guys better upgrade your systems.
