    Should we make a thread called oculus i'm in? Where people just post yes or no. Just to see how much peeps are in and show ISI if there would be any importance for them to support this. So no discussion just jes or no

    Just my thougts :eek:

    Add me to the list. My DK2 should arrive soon and I really want to demo it to my friends using rFactor 2.

    Also this previous post should give us some hope

    the LFS speed dev has already said that LFS has never had so much recognition & a recent flood of new licence purchases
    since the exposure as a result of good rift support, them being in early as helped

    I've no idea how much development time is involved -2 to 4 days ?

    I've ordered a DK2. Hope it solves my longstanding struggle with FOV.

    Which is quite logical considering that others seem to still be waiting for Oculus to contact them. Meanwhile we have no support for rF2 so we look for other things. The uncertainty that provokes ISIs permanent silence about development is so frustrating that people look for alternatives where they can get what they look for. Customer support and communication: that makes the difference.

    I really don't know what ISI is waiting for... LFS, AC saw it very clear from the beginning, as many users did. Facebook acquisition and GDC presentation should have been determinant to make the move. And here we are now talking about opening a new theead to see who is in.... RIDICULOUS

    It's a shame ISI don't have the same approach as the Live for Speed chaps. I'm certain their sales have gone up dramatically since adding Rift support. I tried the demo and bought an S2 licence on the spot, I also tried DCS World and was so impressed I bought the Huey add on for £30 on the spot. DK2 owners are desperate for good content and are prepared to pay ;)

    As for dropping screens for a Rift...I'm tempted myself. I had triple projectors and earlier this year decided to change to SuperFOV with a new short throw PJ and it's great but since getting the DK2 I really don't want to go back to a screen. The only thing stopping me is content right now. Once pCARS gets solid support and maybe AC I think I could be convinced to make the change. I dont race online so I'm confident I can live with the res as the offset by such amazing immersion more than makes up for it IMO.

    After a few hours messing around in LFS the other night I then put AC on my projector..I turned it off after 10 minutes because everything just felt so flat :D

    While the LFS devs did a smart move and we praise them for early Oculus Rift support, let's not forget they told people since 2008 there is a VW Scirocco coming very soon, also a new tyre model... LFS has lived it's best days long ago in my opinion, this was a good way to get some more money out of it. I think ISI isn't interested in such short term gains, at least that is what their development until now makes me believe.

    That said I still voted for Rift support asap :D Not many things have managed to make me this unpatient.

    Of course it was done with financial motivation. And it was rather smart of them too. Why not? Clearly they did it quickly, but with awesome results, and they're reaping the benefits.

    I'm sure iracing will be next. Not going to fault AC since they're in the middle of a major graphics overhaul and it would be stupid to take time away from it (and the big August 29th update), only so it would be quickly broken again and needing of a overhaul.

    I'm surprised GameStock Extreme didn't jump on the boat. That's a title that's in serious need of publicity. Would have been a big boost (and the smaller the team, the more meaningful the boost is). And it's an older engine, so it would have ran on most people's rigs without issue. They could have made some easy money.
