How sick of Pi's VR hype are you?


NeoGAF - View Single Post -  Oculus Rift available for preorder for $599.99, shipping in March

Diggin this quote from a Time reporter that tried CV1 at CES:
But the VR experience that moved me to tears was Toy Box on Oculus Rift. A virtual sandbox where you can play with all kinds of toys, this game lets two players interact in the same virtual space simultaneously. Each player wears their own Oculus Rift headset and headphones, with a controller in both hands. From there, anything goes: You can take target practice with a laser gun, get in a firefight with one another’s toy tanks, or pull apart a robot doll and wear its parts.
 Then my playmate, Erin, shot me with a shrink ray. Suddenly, not only were all the toys enormous to me, but Erin¬ís avatar was looming over me like a hulking giant. Her voice even changed as it poured through my headphones, entering my head with a deep, slow tone. And for a moment, I was a child again, with this giant person lovingly playing with me. It gave me such a profound perspective on what it must be like to be my son, that I started to cry inside the headset. It was a pure and beautiful experience that will reshape my relationship with him moving forward. I was vulnerable to my giant playmate, yet felt completely safe.
I'm so hyped for this .

Don't think it's a question we could ask.  The 100 units comment sounded like it wasn't really something they should have shared.  
Well I sent a tweet out anyway, let's see if he says anything.
