please change the sensationalist title to something else
valve didnt challenge oculus
how many times does valve need to say that they wont enter the hardware market
they were the ones that helped Oculus in the first place
the title is contradictory to everything valve did

yeah, and why are you putting out specs from beta 2 for oculus, final product got 2560x1440 so the final product will be higer rez then dota 2 alpha vr headset is at this point in time how you can compare alpha products in the first place is like looking at the weather cast 3 days ahead, its a estimate at best.

Just because a company says something, doesn't make it true. When Valve finally gives the greenlight for companies to release their steam machines, they're going to come out fully swinging: new controller (of course), Half Life 3, Team Fortress 3, Portal 3, Left 4 Dead 3, Dota 3, new Counter Strike, and quite possibly their own VR gear. Valve isnt trying to pussydick around: they want to own the PC gaming market - scratch that- gaming market.

Stupid author, valve isn't challenging oculus. Stop trying to make misleading titles to get more views. We should be able to rate authors....

@Commenters above

There is no VR helm out there yet. (Sony has a wearable TMZ series TV, for years, but that's not VR)
So all VR helms in works are in alpha/beta stages.

Device described in the article is NOT OCULUS RIFT!
"Final product will have <mega super cool something>" equally applies to all of them.

Unlike Facebook, which has god knows what plans for OR, both Sony (which, on top of it, has other related tech, like existing TMZ series, or move camera/controller) and Valve are into gaming.

Oculus Rift doesn't have a "final product" yet. They're still in open pre-orders for the 2nd Developer Kit which only has 1080p resolution. There's no confirmed "final" version with 1440p resolution. Anything other than the specs of the DK2 are all rumors and speculation. As kartu stated there are no retail VR kits yet. Everything is still in Alpha/Beta stages.
