How to make no-hassle $$$$$ with Oculus Rift?

Postby Alex1S » Sun May 25, 2014 12:15 am

Make a website that claims to be an official Oculus VR store in a country where few speak English well: ************

Buy a bunch of Rift DK1s and start reselling them for 1,025 USD a piece: ************

If that's still not enough, replace the screen on a DK1 by a higher res version and sell them for 2,190 USD a piece: ************

Or just let others experience DK1 for 35 USD for a few minutes: ************

Finally, sell standard arcades with Rift DK1 for 5,860 USD a piece: ************
and guarantee record profits to businesses that buy them by leveraging the credibility of Oculus VR.

??????????

Profit!!!!! :D

p.s. these guys seem to be doing really well, judging by their growing popularity on several national websites and positive feedback. So it's really working!

I assume there's some connection to the Rift-UP! kits?

So road rules / laws / behaving are not the only thing most of the ruskies don't respect regarding other countries... >.<'
(- a person from eastern Finland where big partion of drivers are russians)

If I didn't know better this would seem somewhat legit actually. Especially with all the videos and news they have added on their site.
Russians are great people just like people from any other country, but some of them... Gah. Hope this gets sorted out.

Welcome to Russia!

Parr-for-the-course out there - we are chasing a number of illegal copyright infringements in this lovely territory. Impossible to police with the current status between Russia and the West - so it is a bit of a free for all (Wild West+).

That whole arcade things is a fake - as it is a demo in a mall environment. They tried to turn up at a serious amusement trade event and got shown the door as that part of the industry is policed by a international association that stays out of politics and has some teeth.

Love the Tonight Show rip' ("Evening Urgant") -bet NBC is warming up a corporate legal team jet just for that. :lol:

Sadly the longer FB/OVR takes to release a system - the longer it takes to establish a sales chain and be in a strong enough position to police it. These Russian... and the one we have seen in China and Korea (though never appeared here funny!) are going to be in a interesting position by 2015 - as in certain territories ownership of brand and patent are based on period trading, and as of yet these guys Have been selling something! while OVR has yet to sell a first consumer product!!

I was sure it was legit until I saw the price of DK1 :D

Their main page indeed looks quite legit. That's probably why they seem to be doing so well.

I'm getting malware alerts when I visit that top page.

You'd better take that link down!

Sorry, Oculus does not allow resale of the product. Plus I would not trust that website, could be a scam.

I'm closing this thread and removing the links.

If you want to make money, make a game for the Rift people want to play.
