The Oculus Rift’s Recommended PC Specs released

oculus rift

Today in a blog post, Atman Binstock; chief architect and technical director for the Rift, dropped the skinny on what kind of hardware you are going to need in order to get what he called “the full Rift experience”. And fair warning, it is not for the faint of heart, there are going to be a LOT of people looking to upgrade in order to play games properly on the Rift. So without further ado, here are the recommended specs to get “the full Rift experience”

  • NVIDIA GTX 970 / AMD 290 equivalent or greater
  • Intel i5-4590 equivalent or greater
  • 8GB+ RAM
  • Compatible HDMI 1.3 video output (required)
  • 2x USB 3.0 ports (required)
  • Windows 7 SP1 or newer (required)

Like I said, not for the fair not heart as those are some fairly steep requirements, and we imagine that a lot of people will be looking to upgrade some hardware over the next 6-10 months before the Rift is released.

They also went on to say that they are going to be using those specs over the “lifetime of the Rift”, and as time goes on, naturally that hardware or the equivalent will come down in price. They are using this as a standard so that “Developers, in turn, can rely on Rift users having these modern machines, allowing them to optimize their game for a known target, simplifying development.”
He also went on to explain some of the resolution and latency details of the consumer model;

A traditional 1080p game at 60Hz requires 124 million shaded pixels per second. In contrast, the Rift runs at 2160×1200 at 90Hz split over dual displays, consuming 233 million pixels per second. At the default eye-target scale, the Rift’s rendering requirements go much higher: around 400 million shaded pixels per second. This means that by raw rendering costs alone, a VR game will require approximately 3x the GPU power of 1080p rendering.

You can read the whole, very detailed blog post over here.

Still no word on the pricing for the Rift when it is released sometime in Q1 of next year, but it is great to start seeing more details trickle out.

Tony Hawk: Pro Skater 5 Announced

tonyhawk PS5-4

It has been more then a decade since we have seen a new Pro Skater, but it looks like Activision has decided it is time. They have announced the new Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 will be coming to Xbox One, PS4, PS3 as well as Xbox 360.

Robomodo, the developer of the previous Tony Hawk: Ride, Shred and Pro Skater HD is at the helm, and they are claiming that they are heading back to the roots of the Tony Hawk Pro Skater series in this, which mean missions, power-ups and all sorts of ridiculousness.

thps5_warehouse_tony_ollienorth
They are hoping to create a seamless online world were you can be online and playing with friends and then be offline and have the transition be invisible to the user. They are also saying that players will be able to create and design their own skate parks and share them online.

thps5_school_riley

Activision has come out and said that the game will be 20$ cheaper on Xbox 360 and PS3, and that some of the “seamless” online play may not make it onto those platforms.

No release date has been announced yet

So in a move that is making the whole Internet go up in flames, Oculus VR announced yesterday that they are being bought by Facebook. In a Deal worth $2 billion, Facebook will be acquiring all of Oculus VR, the deal, while not finalized yet, is expected to be complete in 2Q 2014.

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg had this to say of the deal “Mobile is the platform of today, and now we’re also getting ready for the platforms of tomorrow, Oculus has the chance to create the most social platform ever, and change the way we work, play and communicate.”

Oculus also seemed quite happy about the deal saying “We are excited to work with Mark and the Facebook team to deliver the very best virtual reality platform in the world,” Brendan Iribe, co-founder and CEO of Oculus VR says in a PR release. “We believe virtual reality will be heavily defined by social experiences that connect people in magical, new ways. It is a transformative and disruptive technology, that enables the world to experience the impossible, and it’s only just the beginning.

The Deal will be a mix of around $400 Million in cash, and the remainder being Facebook shares once the deal is finalized.

Sooo…. It is looking like VR is ramping up in the coming months and I will be very curious how this changes things going forward, not only for Oculus but for the Sony VR platform as well.

The Original Zelda: the Windwaker compared side by side with the new Zelda: the Windwaker HD.

wind-waker-HD

So the new VERY pretty version of The Legend of Zelda: The Windwaker HD comes out in the Nintendo e-Shop tomorrow for the Wii U, and is hitting stores on Oct 4. So we thought we would show you this video showcasing just how BIG of an increase this new one is in graphical fidelity over the original. The Video may be in Japanese, but we can look and see just how far from the original this new remake is. I don’t know about you guys, but I know what I will be playing once this is released.
