Are you gonna get an Oculus Rift when they come out next year? Why or why not? I'm definitly tempted to get one that's for sure.

I got motion sickness just watching them. I definitely do not want to get those things.

I had the DK1 of the rift and I used to get nauseous due to the motion blur.Apparently that's no longer a problem.I'll definitely be getting one next year.

It depends on the person.
They have improved it by increasing the frame rate but they have said it will never go away If you are a person who gets motion sickness you may still get it with these.
Interesting I have found pills for gaming which decrease MS, I suspect Ginger is in them.

Even though the guy in charge of the rift does say they have solved the problem....I doubt it.

Same problem I had when I got the original kick starter kits.

I really hope it's been resolved as they say. The Microsoft Holo Lens or whatever looks cool as well though.

I'm thinking of making a couple of programs for the rift when the camera comes out.

It looks pretty awesome! The cost is probably expensive. I agree with the one guy, it's not going to benefit kids. They're already glued to the TV playing video games. This technology just might make them a hermit.

The educational possibilities with something like that are astounding though. Kids react to that kind of stimuli. Build games that also teach and you avoid this problem you mention.

I'll probably wait on it for a least a year after release to see how things pan out. Remember Sega Dreamcast or Atari Jaguar, wouldn't wanna be stuck with a useless machine that cost a bundle if it fails in the marketplace.

I want it, I will buy it!
However..

I have a super sweet noiseless (and thus girlfriend friendly!) living room PC, but the downside is that it is slightly below spec.

I think that I will wait buying a Rift until it is time for an upgrade. If I were to upgrade now, just for the Rift, the net improvement would be rather small yet be as pricey as any other upgrade round.

But, dang, I want it!
I have wanted it since I was introduced to VR in London Trocadero in the early 90's.

I have mine and I love it. Every game has a motion sickness rating, but very few make you feel sick. I have three patents for VR and was at the CES last year.
The slower a game moves the more you feel the motion sickness. The VR museum moves so slow it makes you feel really uncomfortable, but most games are just awesome no matter how lame the graphics are your brain believes what you are seeing-get one...

On the flip side Facebook purchased oculus and f@$king ruined it. It no longer works on all machines with a decent graphics chip, now you have to have the newest everything idiots. The good news is that there are many other VRs out there now that do work without insane graphics cards. You can get ones that make your cell phone the VR display for cheap. Besides that is all VR really is. It's a screen with two eyepieces that warp the screen view.

Only a few games do that. The slower the game moves the more you feel sick...a reply to: rickymouse

350 bucks? I can buy fifty chickens from the store for that money, enough to supply a quarter of our meat for our meals for the year.

But since it would make me nauseated using it, I guess I would not be hungry.

I doubt it too. Without your inner ear matching the feeling of motion to what you are seeing you get motion sickness. I got it yesterday for the first time ever on a game. I blame it on my sons steam controller which was really sensitive.....so it's probable me "moving" too fast. That will still be a problem as people turn their heads quickly inside a game. Nobody has explained how that problem has been solved.......unless the headset comes with motion sickness tablets!

Not including the cost of the PC.
I did mine for 500 quid...could do on more memory and a SSD oh and maybe a new motherboard next year so it will have cost me a grand when I have it all.
I'm a gamer always have been even before video games so the cost while around 1/15th of my yearly pay is justified.

I was reading that games that put you in the driver seat IE Mechwarrior online, star citizen flight games are the best for VR and also to combat motion sickness, FPS games will be the worse to play but I don't play many of them.

I think I'd just buy one of those google cardboard deals and sample how good it is first. But Ya I could see vr going really really big.
