Here's the full page btw
http://www.oculusvr.com/dk2/

Definitely want more than ever, but I'm still gonna way for the consumer version.

Is this the Crystal Cove?  What is it using for positional tracking with the camera if there isn't the white dots on it?

No it's not crystal cove but it must have most of the same features, it is interesting that there are no visible IR dots, but we can only assume it is using them or something equivalent or the IR camera is pointless.

Actually, according to Kotaku, it is the Crystal Cove.  Oh and as for the the positional tracking, I looked at the picture again and it looks like there's a black IR light panel in the top center perhaps?

I can understand the requirement. Can't rely on everyone/anyone to have a camera with the right specs and don't want people complaining that it isn't working as intended. They give you the camera included in the price so it isn't anything extra.

Yes, but that is $50 more than the old kit.

The screen in it is 1080p and 5".. i would blame that more than the camera.

I get the feeling Oculus is going to have to get a move on given the recent announcement by Sony about their VR headset....

Why, the sony headset is for their own console and has an inferior FOV, Oculus are taking care of the PC market.

I hope Outerra will support the new positional tracking in the DK2 from day one. I ordered one and would love to play with it in Outerra.

Also, it would be nice if it is possible to set the default head position because in the MIG the head is too far backward.

By the way, DK2 != crystalCove. They both have a low persistence OLED screen (no blurring when you move your head) and positional tracking but they are not exactly the same. The DK2 still has the IR led's but they are hidden behind IR translucent plastic.
