ATTENTION EVERYONE: We holding a Free PlayStation VR Giveaway!

Enter to win your free PlayStation VR, Samsung Gear VR and other great prizes!

Enter our free Playstation VR giveaway today!

You know that you want the greatest new technology in the virtual reality space being released this year. The PlayStation VR was originally known as Project Morpheus while it was being developed. According to Anton Mikhailov, a Sony engineer, the PlayStation VR has been in development since at least 2011. A very early release of the PlayStation VR was introduced on March 18, 2014. On September 15, 2015, Sony officially changed the name from Project Morpheus to PlayStation VR. Under a month ago, on June 15th, 2016, Sony confirmed that the PlayStation VR headset will be available to consumers on October 13, 2016.

The team behind this website have had other successful giveaway contests over the years. We have given away numerous Xbox One and Playstation 4 consoles, as well as iPad’s, Apple Watches, iPhones, and Samsung products. We are always trying to look at the latest and greatest technology that we can procure and give away. The prizes in this giveaway include Amazon Gift Cards for our lowest qualifying contestants. The next prize tier includes Samsung Gear VR headsets. Our grand prize is a free Oculus Rift VR headset.

Each person who qualifies for a prize, regardless of how many points they have is given one entry into our prize pool. When the contest is over, our system will randomly draw winners from each prize pool.

free PlayStation VR giveawayEarlier this month, we gave away a free Oculus Rift, a free Samsung Gear VR, and some $50.00 Amazon Gift Cards to our previous contest winners!  It was a fun little contest with only a small handful of participants battling it out for the grand prize.  After facing some pitfalls with our last giveaway with dealing with some legal matters, we will no longer be holding Oculus Rift giveaways as we do not want to have further issues with Oculus VR, LLC going forward.

Contest Extension And Web Server Issues

We posted earlier in the week on the site that our free Oculus Rift giveaway contest was extended as we did not have anyone eligible for our grand prize when the contest was originally scheduled to end. As such the free Oculus Rift giveaway has been extended to July 1st, 2016 in hopes that someone can earn enough points to qualify for the prize.

If no one qualifies for the Oculus Rift by that time, we will still select winners for the other prizes in our giveaway and we will re-run the contest again with lower eligibility requirements. We thought that we would have a few people by now score at least 5000 points. We make it pretty simple if you check out our tutorial video on the contest entry page. We go step by step into all of the easy ways you can earn hundreds of points each day using various social sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. It’s still not too late to qualify. Heck you even get 250 points just for watching the tutorial and clicking the link at the end. It doesn’t get much simpler than that!

We are re-posting this message as we had some issues with our primary web server. We are now running on a backup server while we try and rebuild our primary web hosting solution. As such we had to restore from a backup which is a few days older than we had hoped for. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause our contestants and hope that you will forgive our issues.


Valve Releases Portal VR Demo…and it is AWESOME!

Portal VR Demo for HTC ViveFor those who jumped on the HTC Vive pre-order, Valve has just given you another reason to celebrate your decision to pickup a Vive.  If you are a fan of the hilarious and challenging Portal puzzle series of games, Valve has released a demo of Portal VR.  This portal themed game will make its official debut at next weeks Game Developer Conference.

The demo video released by Valve shows a player attempting to work as a robot repairman.  Using the controls from the HTC Valve, a user can interact with the surrounding environment by picking up object, opening drawers, and attempting to assemble a robot.  The demo is filled with some very practical uses of virtual reality such as looking around by moving your head in every direction and using controls to interact with things.  In addition the demo is hilarious in true Portal style.  My personal favorite part of the demo deals with opening the drawers early on, showing how one can interact with the environment, as well as the comedic elements of opening the wrong drawers, then opening the drawer with the Aperture Science Pocket Universe, staring directly into the drawer and becoming the God of that universe, only to have it incinerated upon closing the drawer.

You can checkout the complete Portal VR demo below.  I am definitely looking forward to more cool demos across the various VR device platforms.  While we currently are not running any types of contests for an HTC Vive, it does look like an amazing VR platform.  Based on strong pre-sale numbers it is going to be one of the top VR devices in 2016, competing primarily with the Oculus Rift.

Speaking about the Oculus Rift, we are holding a free Oculus Rift giveaway.  It is quick and easy to enter, and all you need to do is promote your unique contest link on social networking sites you probably already use on a daily basis.  We make it really easy to promote your contest link by just clicking a couple of buttons.  If you are interested in winning a free Oculus Rift, please join our giveaway today!


And You Thought The Oculus Rift Was Expensive…Welcome Microsoft’s HaloLens To The Arena

Microsoft HaloLens Headset

When Oculus VR first announced the pre-order cost of $599.00 for it’s Oculus Rift Consumer Version 1 (CV1) unit people kind of flipped out on the price.  The early developer kits sold for nearly $150.00 less than the CV1 units.  While I am confident that a lot of improvement have been made between the earlier developer kits and the final consumer ready version that justify the higher price point, many other might not agree with me.  News recently announced today mentioned that Microsoft is officially opening up pre-orders for their HaloLens headset.  If you thought $599.00 was a costly price of entry for the wearable headset market, Microsoft is really going to up the cost.

Before we get into the price for the HaloLens developer kit, it is important to note that the HaloLens and the Oculus Rift are two completely different types of wearable headset.  The Oculus Rift is about presenting you screens which immerse you into a game, application or movie which are tied directly to your computer.  The HaloLens is a completely different beat.  It doesn’t focus so much on 360 degree gaming or video; it is more of an alternate reality device.  Instead of having screens displaying images from your computer, you can actually see the world around you and place virtual objects in the real world.  As an example, the HaloLens could eventually be used to replace your television set.  You could cast a virtual television device using the HaloLens to a certain area of your living room.  As you walk around the house, the HaloLens would remember where you placed the virtual television and continue to display the contents of whatever you were watching as you navigate around the room.  The technology within the HaloLens is quite amazing.  You can also play games with the HaloLens and create 3D words as demonstrated by Microsoft using MineCraft at E3 in 2015.  The HaloLens is definitely on its own playing field in terms of what it can do.  If you thought Google Glass was cool when it came out and was eventually shelved, you are going to be stunned by all of the things the HaloLens will be capable of.

If you are dying to get your hands on the Microsoft HaloLens, be prepared to drop some serious coin.  Microsoft announced the developer kits are going to be available for pre-order for developers who sign up for their Windows Insider Program and fill out an application informing Microsoft why they should be part of the HaloLens developer program.  If accepted into the program, you would then need to spend $3000.00 to get the HaloLens developer kit.  The HaloLens developer kit comes with the following hardware specifications.  The HaloLens itself includes a custom 32-bit processor with 2 GB of memory, a 64 GB storage unit along with four environment-sensing cameras, one depth camera, four microphones, one ambient light sensor, and many other sensors which can assist with measuring movement.  The HaloLens also includes a 2-megapixel photo and video camera. This can allow users create videos that combine real-world and holographic images.  Also included is a bluetooth controller which will allow users to help control what is going on in their alternate reality environment.

While it is estimated that the HaloLens consumer ready device is still a long way out, it is still a great sign to see Microsoft begin making developer kits to get their technology out to aspiring developers.  We hope to see some great content come out for the HaloLens prior to its launch whenever that may be.  We also hope Microsoft is able to do the opposite of Oculus VR and sell their HaloLens consumer edition units below the cost of the developer kits.

If you are still hunkering for an Oculus Rift CV1 unit but don’t want to spend over $600.00 for one, you still have plenty of time to enter our free Oculus Rift giveaway!  Just sign up today and promote the giveaway on sites like Facebook and Twitter.  You know you are already using at least one of those platforms!  All you need to do is click a couple of buttons and you are well on your way to qualifying for prizes!  We don’t ask you to fill out any surveys or download anything in order to qualify. All you need to do is tell your friends, family or other like minder people about the contest and you could win yourself a free Oculus Rift!


Oculus Rift Bundles Now Available For Pre-Order

Check out the Oculus Rift giveawayEarlier in the year we mentioned how you could pre-order the Orculus Rift VR headset from the Oculus store for $599.00 plus shipping and any potential taxes.  Early pre-orders had an estimated ship date of late March of this year.  Currently, if you waited to place your Oculus Rift pre-order, you can expect to receive your virtual reality headset in July or potentially even later depending on when you place your order.  If you missed the boat on getting your Oculus Rift in March, and don’t want to wait until the second half of the year, you have the opportunity to jump on the Oculus Rift PC bundle pre-order which launched on February 16th, 2016.

Oculus VR has partnered with ASUS, Alienware, and Dell PC manufacturers to produce Oculus certified gaming machines that will give you an optimal performing machine for your Oculus Rift headset.  The bundles are going to start at $1,499.00 and will increase to well over $3,000.00 depending on the computer you choose to bundle with your Oculus Rift unit.  If you were in the market for a new computer to go along with your Oculus Rift, jump on this pre-order today and you could get your new gear sometime in April.  This will put you well ahead of people who are currently only placing pre-orders for the Oculus Rift headset alone.  The PC bundle will come with both the PC you choose, an Oculus Rift consumer version 1 (CV1), and everything else included with the Oculus Rift pre-order.  These items include the Oculus Remote, an Xbox one controller, and EVE; Valkyrie and Lucky’s Tale.

If you already pre-ordered your Oculus Rift, do not fret my friend, you can still jump in and pre-order a PC to go along with your unit.  The Oculus store will allow people who already pre-ordered an Oculus Rift to order the bundle deal as well.  If you are unsure if your current PC is ready for the Oculus Rift, you can either checkout the recommended specifications sheet, or you can run the Oculus compatibility tool.  If you are unsure whether or not you need to upgrade your computer in order to take advantage of an optimal performing Oculus Rift, we recommend you run the comparability tool.

While we are not offering a full on Oculus Rift PC bundle with our giveaway, you can still easily win a free Oculus Rift.  Just sign up today with your email, Facebook account, or Google account and easily start to qualify for the Oculus Rift VR headset.  All you need to do is promote our giveaway to your friends and family on sites you already use on a daily basis.  Whether you use Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Reddit, or Google+, you can easily share your unique contest link with your friends and other like minded individuals.  Anyone who clicks your link earns you a point, and anyone who signs up under you earns you 50 more!  We highly recommend checking out our contest tutorial video to learn how to quickly and easily enter and qualify for our prizes.
