I knew when I first heard about it that I wouldn’t be shelling out any money for the Oculus Rift.  I don’t really play any other online games besides SL, and for me, something like the OR is useless.

I am generally logged into SL daily, but I am also often taken away from PC – kids, laundry, dogs, dishes, and the million other little distractions that happen during an ordinary day.  Having to take the OR on/off every time that happens is a no-go.  I have a hard enough time dealing with my reading glasses!!

I would have liked the immersion into SL, but I guess that Kitty is right, Linden Labs won’t upgrade OR unless it’s for their new game.
