    Why does my Oculus Rift only show 3 dots?
    trudi

    This can be due to account synchronization issues, such as an Oculus Rift account password being changed on PC or PS4, or accessing the app with a different WiFi network.

    ramona

    If your Oculus Rift headset isn't responding, there are some quick steps you can try. Check to make sure your headset is nearby and turned on. If the app keeps crashing, check that your Wi-Fi signal is strong and ensure that you're up-to-date with the latest version of the app. If none of these help, uninstall and re-install the app. Then restart your headset.

Oculus Rift Review: This Shit Is Legit

Virtual reality has never really convinced me it’s worth the hassle. The roughly developed attempts so far never seem to justify the awkward hardware or the stomach queasiness.
