The $500 million verdict Zenimax won against Facebook over the Oculus Rift was cut in half yesterday by a U.S. District Court, Bloomberg reports. The parent company of Bethesda had sued the social media company claiming its VR headset was developed using intellectual property stolen by former employee John Carmack.

The HTC Vive is now $599, receiving its first official price drop since the virtual reality headset launched last year at $799. That puts the Vive at $100 more than the Rift/Touch combo, though the latter is current on sale for a limited time for $399. (Updated with latest Rift pricing)

Dirt Rally is getting Oculus Rift support next Monday, July 11. From what I’ve played of the non-VR game, it will be a lot to deal with. I’m going to play it anyway.

SUPERHOT VR gets a new Oculus Touch trailer. Should be pretty cool—the non-VR game is great—though I’ll be curious whether or not you can move around within levels. They call it a “complete new title” and say it’ll debut with Oculus Touch later this year.
