I am hoping by the time the game is close to coming out, I will have the funds for the OC, and a system that I would be happy to be buried with... As long as I could play SC in the crypt!

My DK2 has been checked out for shipping but hasn't been shipped out yet. Should hopefully receive mine with the next batch.

Looking forward to adding it to my cockpit for use in Arena Commander.

*Update* just got my shipping confirmation.

Once I get the setup right, I'll invite Nikki over, so she can try it and make a video.

I look forward to the video.

I will have to try it before I buy one, I have a feeling I might be one of those that might get a headache from it.

Mine arrived earlier this week. Most programs are still only configured for the DK1 but I have found a few programs to test with my DK2 and it is a major improvement over the DK1.

I'm still personally holding out for the commercial version, but I love that people are essentially beta testing these. I do wonder about the use of peripherals with the Oculus, I read a great article arguing that more should be done with the Xbox kinect to help reduce the need for peripherals, which made me think about how hard it would be to manage a keyboard, mouse, flight stick and anything else, while not being able to actually see any of these.
