"How many Half Lifes, Winston?"
The needle went up to sixty.
"How many Half Lifes, Winston?"
"Three! Three! What else can I say? Three!"
The needle must have risen again, but he did not look at it. The heavy, stern face and the three Half Lifes filled his Steam Store page. The Half Lifes stood up before his eyes like pillars, enormous, blurry and seeming to vibrate, but unmistakably three.
"How many Half Lifes, Winston?"
"Three! Stop it, stop it! How can you go on? Three! Three!"
"How many Half Lifes, Winston?"
"Two! Two! Two!"
"No, Winston, that is no use. You are lying. You still think there are three. How many Half Lifes, please?"
"Three! Two! Three! Anything you like. Only stop it, stop the wait!"
Abruptly he was sitting up with Newell's arm round his shoulders.

Few will get this reference.

Because you know, not everyone will be able to afford that kind of game, if they made it might be Oculus Rift compatible as TF2 but i doubt it would be as exclusive as you made it sound

I hope not. Games built around an accessory pretty much always fail. Tony Hawk games with skateboards, SSX On Tour with snowboards, Star Wars lightsaber games, DJ Hero, every single Kinect game. The only 2 ever to succeed are Wii Fit and Guitar Hero. The reason Oculus Rift works is that it games aren't built around it. It takes games and makes them better. If they made Half Life 3 Oculus Rift-compatible it would be cool, but I'd never want to see a Half Life game that's made just for it.

nooooo thank you, the rift seems cool as an idea, as a gimmick, but try use that for a nice 4 hour gaming sesh and youll be having seizures, not to mention every attempt to get closer to VR in the past ever has failed with consumers (Wii, kinect ect..) i know they might have done well commercially but the reality no one really likes them, and almost anyone will prefer a controller or KB+M instead. Another point is that games based around specific hardware almost always fail. one last thing, can we not forget that the rift itself is just some screens on your face, for the full experience you need that 360 treadmill thing, like, in every oculus vid i see, there also using that, and only the real rich people will be able to afford both, or want both, and that treadmill thing looks.. unkind to the balls.

I'm sorry, but you have no idea what you're talkingn about.

1) The rift is two screens. They are positioned so that they simulate distance, so your eyes don't strain focusing on a screen near your face. They also simulate 3D perfectly without need for tricks and gimmicks - it's "real" 3D like never before. Because quite literally, it uses the brains exact method of 3D. The screens also take up your peripherals. It's 100% immersive.

2) In VR you are strongly recommended to sit down and not move. It really, really messes up your nature ability to function. Standing alone requires so much cognitive awareness, VR is not a moving thing. Watch the video with TotalBiscuit trying out the Rift - even sitting he had to take it off because he got disoriented as **** . Don't worry, it's not like that for everyone - and even in the worst cases it just takes getting used

3) You will not have seizures unless looking around in the normal world gives you seizures. Your first sessions will be a bit uncomfortable as your brain is definitely not used to literally being dropped into virtual reality - but then you'll be fine. Like you said, all it is are some screens on your face.

4) I don't play video games to have to move around and run. Controllers or kb/m are definitely still useable, and are encouraged to be used. Again, you shouldn't be moving using this, as you aren't in the real world and the lack of proper awareness causes issues with basic balancing.

5) The Kinect is not the Rift. The **** you talking about? They don't even try to achieve the same goal. And nothing has to be built around the Rift. All they have to do is add the support for 3D rendering (built into virtually all engines) and then allow the Rift to move the camera (aka reuse the mouse code with slight mods). Oh wow, so much work! Meanwhile the Kinect requires complex motion recognition that's not ready for the real-world yet.

They're going to call it "Half Life 3D", because it's going to be a 3DS exclusive.

Can you PLEASE, ******* stop with the HL3 ******** ? Face it, it will never be release, it is not in some "secret development mode", you're ******* wasting your time even talking about it. Besides, HL2 was ******* crap, I don't know what kind of ******** you people saw in it.
