    The last train of Microsoft

    In my opinion there's a tech company could compete with Oculus, and that's company is Microsoft. Microsoft has money for compete in the price, one the main obstacle for other companies are the money. The price is very important for the mass market and It's one the reason of successful of Quest...

    Snagged a G2

    HP gave me a $75 off coupon for Canadian store. GRAD75. Pushed me over the edge. Paid for the taxes I guess. Love my Odyssey+ and feel I need a better GPU, but many have said they enjoy their G2 with equal or lesser. I am obviously familiar with the WMR environment some I am looking forward to...

    Rumor: Valve's Next VR Hardware and (Possible) Handheld

    Recently, two videos have been posted regarding Valve's next steps for VR. One is from Tyler McVicker. The other is from Thrillseeker. I haven't seen much discussion of this online except for a few news outlets that report on rumors and leaks, so I wanted to get people's opinions here...

    Next Valve Index VR headset may be wireless

    "Wireless Valve Index VR headsets could be on the way, if a recently granted patent in the US is anything to go by. The document details both a standalone device — like the Oculus Quest 2 — as well as a wireless version that would connect to an external device such as a PC."...

    Just purchased Valve Index, want to display VR view on TV in other room

    Hey folks. I just purchased the Valve index, and my PC room is too small so I am running a 15 foot extension out to my living room. I would like to have my desktop display the VR view onto my TV in there so people can see what the person in VR is viewing. Does anyone have any advice on how to...

    Oculus Quest 2

    Might as well start an owners thread since there is not one yet. I have used my Quest 2 a little bit for now and here are my impressions coming from CV1. First, the image is absolutely beautiful. There is still just a hint of SDE but it is equivalent to what you see in 27" 1080p monitor. Like...

    RTX 3080 vs Radeon 6800 XT - VR testing

    Didn't see a thread for this so I figured I would start one. Others can post similar articles as well if desired. https://babeltechreviews.com/vr-wars-the-rx-6800-xt-vs-the-rtx-3080-15-vr-games-performance-benchmarked/ Seems like the 3080 is on top in most tests, trading blows in others.

    Which VR headset to buy in 2020?

    Leaning towards the Valve Index but not sure if it's the best option. Will be pairing this with prescription lenses for it. Don't think any model can fit glasses inside right now? Thanks in advance.

    Project Cars 3

    It is getting a bit panned on reviews. So how is the VR? Is it an improvement? I am thinking it should be as it would have been designed from the ground up? No? I personally found PC2 very good with VR. A really good piece of software IMO. Thoughts?

    Any word on the street how this performs? What to expect etc... Seems to struggle with 1080p Ultra, so a bit curious how it will play out.

    Good lord, prescription lens inserts are an incredible game changer!

    Recently purchased a pair of the WidmoVR prescription lens inserts and it's like a brand new system. I thought that since I was near-sighted that it wouldn't really affect me much, but the different is incredibly significant. Took a shot in the dark and these things are AMAZING. If you need...

    Year of the Desktop VR? How many more iterations will it take before VR is flawless?

    And what defines a "flawless" experience? Visuals? Hand controls? Foot controls? Tactile force-feedback? What will be the breaking point of when VR becomes better than reality? What features would you like to see improved, besides visual clarity? And what features don't exist yet that should...

    High IPD - am I out of the VR game before I started?

    With some down time on my hands I've been looking at getting a VR set. Knowing I have a big ol' noggin I measured my IPD (inter pupil distance) with a ruler and a mirror and got a 75mm. Seems that falls well above most of the given IPD for headsets. Anyone with a high IPD using a headset to...

    "Sweet Spot"

    I'm pretty happy with my Lenovo Explorer, especially with the limited VR gaming I do. That said my main complaint with it is how tiny the "sweet spot" is when positioning the HMD. a centimeter in any direction causes everything to go pretty blurry. I don't have the funds for an Index, but is...

    Automobilista 2

    Came across these VR videos of vintage F1 in the Early Access release of Automobilista 2, and holy hell this is the best thing I've ever seen (aside from the lens flare :banghead:). The EA was just released a couple weeks ago. The first game flew under my radar, but this definitely has my...

    Beat Saber is Awesome - I need new arms

    I know this is likely to be ancient news to most, but I don't have any friends who VR and wanted to share. For whatever reason, I held off a long time on buying Beat Saber. I think I was harboring some kind of grudge against it for being such a simple, "casual" game. A couple days ago, I finally...

    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?

    The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners

    Haven't picked this up yet, but may check it out with my Boneworks refund money. A bit more expensive, but apparently a lot more "game" than Boneworks from what I've heard. Anyone have any experience with this one? It's getting some pretty rave reviews.

    VR Core Scaling (specifically 6 vs 8). Any data?

    From the information I've been able to find there is a suggestion that VR does have some more scaling with core count relative to conventional gaming. Well at least in terms of benefiting more from having >4c/8t more so than conventional gaming. What I'm unable to find is more direct...
