90 degrees. So in other words it's just a monitor strapped to your face. I'll take one order of Oculus Rift to go.

Holy cow the 1080p announcement surprised the hell out of me.. now to see the actual thing in action- any screen-tearing, slowdowns in fps or motion sickness due to both these issues? Sony you might have just rolled out an rpg
