    "For PCs, Oculus recommends at least 8GB of RAM, an Intel i5 or better and a high-powered graphics card. Its recommendations are available here and you can check if your computer is up to the job here. If you don't have a good-enough computer, you'll be looking at paying £1,000 and up for one."

    "When you watch Henry in virtual reality, you feel like you're actually in his world, looking around and interacting with him," Mark Zuckerburg, who also owns Oculus, wrote in a Facebook post last night. "Henry is a great example of how VR is going to change storytelling. Congrats to the Oculus Story Studio team on their big win, and I'm excited to share more big news about Oculus at our developer conference next month."

    Sorry @Neil Hughes...I don't get it. I give credit to the inventors of the game and the roll out excuses to justify its existence but beyond that, I tend to think it's another way to make us dependent on the electronic device. My kids already spend too much time texting and messaging, so why would I condone it further? Just seems like a dumbing down to me.

    Then again, I'm older, so I expect to be among a certain group who feel the same way. Kind of the same thing my parents said when they complained about me playing that "damned rock n roll. " :)

    This craze is insane and a brilliant move by a dying brand. Last weekend while visiting the MIT campus in Cambridge, MA I was shocked to see scores of uber smart geeks, of all ages, out and about like a scene from Zombieland with smartphones in hand chasing these virtual critters. Funny watching in real time as the rest of the world is trying to catch up with this craze. Best part is the effect on kids...forcing them outdoors to actually experience this thingy some call sunlight!
