Will Titanfall support Oculus Rift? "You never know," says R

Your comments on our articles.

But "nothing official" for the moment

Respawn Entertainment's just received a boxful of Oculus Rift, as revealed on Twitter, and says building the fancy VR tech into Titanfall isn't beyond question. I wonder how easy those mech cockpits are to clean? Because if VR does make it into Titanfall, I'm going to spend half of every match throwing up.... read more

Will Titanfall support Oculus Rift? "You never know," says R

Just a by the by.

It's odd how people always refer to it as the Oculus Rift. The device is a Rift. Oculus is the company name. It's the same thing as saying "Have you seen my Apple iPhone? I spent the night playing on my Microsoft Xbox. Turn on the Pioneer television and see what's on BBC's Eastenders"

Now back to your normal programming...

No, but we did use to turn on our Apple Mac computers back in the day, we still refer to Microsoft Office and I clean my house with a Dyson. Some companies, especially ones with only one product, just get linked directly with the product they make.

It's funny how these things come about - a bunch of consumers decide that they're going to think about a product a certain way, the press follow, and the marketing teams have no choice but to kowtow. Especially funny when a company insists on imposing some stupid naming gimmick, such as "Watch_Dogs", and everybody ignores it.

Out of curiosity, can Oculus Rift be used with glasses or will I have to get used to wearing contact lenses in order to fully appreciate them?

I think it's odd how people are more excited by this rift than the new Kinect, I realise they are not the same thing but I can't see the appeal of having a screen attached to my face. I think it could cause headaches etc

The one I got to try wouldn't have worked with glasses - it's strapped right to your face - but I suppose it's possible they could adjust the effect to simulate in-game glasses.

I think the same. I used to have a set of mini screen glasses for the PS2 (not 3D or anything, just meant no TV needed) and I could only use them for about ten minutes before I got blinding headaches and my eyes hurt. Similar story when I tried the Virtual Boy (anyone remember that?) except in that case it was headaches, eye strain and a stiff neck :lol:

I'm sure Oculus have much better tech than those two examples but I'd have to try one before I bought.

It's because the (Oculus) Rift is good, and the Kinect is rubbish. Do pay attention.

It's like Oculus have forgotten the whole cyber-sickness thing that caused Virtual Reality to fail. 3D televisions give me terrible headaches and I have motion sickness, so I'm doubly screwed with the Rift. :(

[edit so I look less of an arse] would you kindly not be so prejudgingly negative

The console isn't even out yet, you can't judge something you haven't used, let alone class it as rubbish because you don't like the look of it

Forgive my rudeness but would you just shut up!

Your anger's a little misdirected there. I'm pretty sure Thos. was just quoting popular internet opinion.

Regardless of Thos' intentions, it was one of those inflammatory statements that just serves to wind people up, so to keep the peace I would appreciate it if everyone drop this subject right now. Let's draw a line under it and move in. Anyone who doesn't is getting to get into a spot of trouble and it doesn't matter to me if you're a regular or not, so lets just let it end here please.

Thank you chaplings.

OK, so we all agree the Kinect causes strong feelings and debate, and this was originally a story about the Rift. Just to clarify your rules - are we allowed to talk about the Kinect under a news post about the Kinect please?
