    Does the Rift S possess any features that would make it a must-have over the Odyssey+?

    Prices notwithstanding, is there anything about the Rift S which makes it objectively better than the Odyssey+, or anything about the Odyssey which makes it worse?

    Oculus Rift 2017, Best VR games?

    So I've had a 2017 era Rift kit sitting unopened in the box for over a year now. This is the version immediately previous to the Rift S and Quest releases. What games or apps are must haves or must experience in your opinion? Keep in kind that I can't do S or Quest exclusive titles - they...

    How to view Unreal Engine 4 content on Rift S?

    So, I searched here and through Google and can't find the answer to this question. My company bought the Rift S because we originally had the Rift and we like the simplicity of the Rift S compared to the original Rift. We had a Unreal Engine 4 VR thing that we showed to people using the Rift but...

    Samsung Gear VR comfort compared to Rift?

    I was unable to fully immerse myself into VR when I had an Oculus Rift due to the poor display quality and extreme discomfort from wearing it over glasses. It's a few years later now and my tablets are having trouble streaming high quality video, leaving my Note 8 as the only mobile device I...

    Oculus founder Palmer Lucky many not work for Facebook's VR division anymore, but apparently, he's still supporting some of his company's earliest adopters. In a blog post, he acknowledges that long term use of Oculus Rift CV1 kits can lead to the failure of one, or both, of the headset's...

    New to VR

    I recently picked up a rift bundle for $140 and came with everything in box (headset, 2 touch controls, and 2 sensors). Are there any good exclusives for the rift? What's the best way to clean the headset? I noticed I get outside light from the nose area on the face foam. Is there a foam...

    Oculus Rift Update Could be More Modest Than Previously Planned

    Last week, Oculus co-founder Brendan Iribe left the company, and Techcrunch seemed to think that it wasn't on the best of terms. An "inside source" claimed that Facebook canceled the "Rift 2", and now a "a source familiar with the matter" is going into more detail. The Oculus Rift's successor...

    Why am I having to fiddle with xHCI BIOS settings to run VR?

    Hey all. Hoping someone with more computer science book learnin' can explain why my Rift keeps taking a dump on me. I'm doing room scale HMD + sensors, so 1 HDMI and 4 USB ports total (at least 3 USB 3.0 ports, ideally). Currently running into the issue on my Gigabyte Pheonix SLI x99 with my...

    With Oculus Rift, is there any way to determine that you're facing the front cameras?

    I hate getting lost in my room-scale space. I was thinking it would be neat to approach your barrier, when the grid popped up, and maybe the front of the room the grid would appear a different color so you knew this was the front of your play area. Is there anything like this available? Thanks.

    Orbus Players

    Anybody checked out Orbus yet? I've got about 5-10 hours in it but it has gotten kind of stale...maybe because I'm a bit aimless or have been playing solo. For those not in the know, Orbus is an early access VR MMO. I haven't progressed beyond firearms yet but everything is very much a manual...

    Better head tracking with on-board USB 3.0?

    I picked up an fx8350/M5A97 MB for cheap ($130) upgrade from my 1100t.. Now medium works :). Anyway, i had been getting some head tracking and loss of HMD connection using my PEXUSB3S44V 4-Port PCI Express adapter with both sensors and hmd plugged in. So i moved the HMD to the on-board USB 3.0...

    Oculus Rift and GTX 1060 with newer drivers (late 2017) jitter shutter lag glitch

    I had noticed slightly worse performance when I updated a month or so ago and then when Oculus 2.0 came out it forced me to upgrade to the latest and the perfomance was completely unusable (if the games would even load). I ended up downgrading from 2.0 (turn off beta) and rolled back to version...

    Fallout 4 VR

    Anyone else pick this up? Just grabbed it for $55 CAD (roughly $40 usd) and so far it seems to work fine for my rift. Played the game for 10 minutes (all the time I had for now lol) and so far reports the game is "unplayable" on the rift is grossly overstated. I have had no issues moving...

    Vive to Rift

    Who Will Buy Windows VR too?

    Current Rift / Vive owners, will you pick up a Windows VR unit too? Yea or nay and why? I'm thinking about grabbing one of the higher resolution Windows VR units. The extra pixels are supposed to be a solid visual upgrade over Rift / Vive. I plan to wait for Steam VR support first though.

    Why does my Rift look noticeably better with a DP-HDMI adapter?

    Digital signal, 1s and 0s, only if defective, etc. Now that that's out of the way, I did my own little blind test where I kept the HMD on and my wife would randomly connect either the default HDMI or the adapter. I am a rational and skeptical person, but there is a major quality increase when...
