I'm interested in all of those games...
You don't matter, Larry.
I was just being more specific, and pointing out that the phone itself is pretty expensive anyway.
I'm not really sure why you would add a GPU and controllers to the price for a VR headset when comparing it to GearVR though... If you're talking about upgrading hardware then in my opinion the cost of the phone in comparison is justified.
Well for ~600$ you can get a Gear VR compatible smartphone.
And for the same ~600$ you can get a casual PC with a good enough quad core CPU, but not one with the kind of high end GPU that Oculus VR recommends, so you do have to add the cost of that GPU upgrade somewhere.
But the general idea is that the 100$ cost of Gear VR only represents a small 1/6th of the smartphone's 600$ price, while the 600$ CV1 headset will double the cost of that initial 600$ PC, and the CV1's options (200$ Touch, the optional 80$ camera, the compatible Inateck USB hub, the recommended GPU upgrade) will almost finish tripling it.
Oculus VR needs to halve their asking price (using single screen DK2 and Razor Hydra magnetic level technology if needed), before they can assume ~99% of Steam users didn't buy a VR headset for their PC because they didn't want one.
I was saying that Gear VR is a ~99$ upgrade "IF" you already own the Samsung smartphone.
And that the CV1 (including headset, Touch, and a ~GTX 970 level GPU upgrade) is closer to being a ~999$ upgrade "IF" you already own the PC.
That's a small step for smarphone users, but a huge leap for PC users.
I'm hoping, just hoping, that they only had like five units available so they could claim a sell-off straight away.
