Well with the reported shortage of the Oculus dev kits I broke down and ordered one. It arrived yesterday and unfortunately it looks like I’ll need to send it back since the magnetometer doesn’t calibrate.

Though I was able to play with the tuscan villa demo fine there were the basic dev kit issues everyone has mentioned. First off is a two part beast of latency and graphics quality. Both add up to causing a bit of motion sickness and create a motion blur effect that will make you (or most people) nauseous. There is a lot of potential there and I look forward to the retail kit and the next dev kits.
