Sorry Ocuclus. Until the price approaches $250, I'm not interested.
This sounds rather arbitrary, given how much some people spend on gaming monitors, controllers, GPUs, and let's not forget consoles.
although Microsoft appears to believe in its mixed reality efforts, losing the price advantage--and just before its launch on October 17--was a blow.
They still have one huge
advantage: no external cameras or light houses.
Oculus shouldn't really care, as long as their software can support MS' hardware. The main thing each of these guys wants is for consumers to use their SW ecosystem & store. Here, MS has another advantage - by having lower GPU requirements, they can effectively block some customers from using Windows MR devices with Oculus' portal.
