2,160 × 2,160 (4.6MP) per-eye resolution at 90Hz + 2 hand controllers + 1 hip tracker?
This headset set looks great but at $450... It looks too good to be true.
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.
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...
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...
HP has just launched a new VR headset developed in conjunction with Microsoft and Valve. The headset sports a resolution of 2160x2160 per eye on 2" x 2.89" LCD screens with a refresh rate of 90 Hz. It promises "infinite" tracking area with 4 cameras in the headset. IPD adjustment is...
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...
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...
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...
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...
Humble currently has a fantastic bundle chock-full of VR's best games...the first payment tier starts at $1 and gets you Cosmic Trip and Smashbox Arena, both of which have 'Very Positive' user reviews on Steam...the next tier gets you Gorn, Budget Cuts, and Space Pirate Trainer...lastly, there's...

Superhot VR and Moss
I have been wanting to get all of the mid...
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.
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...
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...
A long time coming, and still missed the mark. Not at least matching the Index is a massive mistake. Will help the used market buyers at least!
My B-Day is coming up and I want to make myself a present. Whatever in $500-700 range should be ok, IF it's actually worth it.
I did a quick Google search, and it doesn't look like theres very many "good" VR games out there.. i'm talking truly AAA titles like Fallout 4 or Resident Evil 7.
Having an issue where my oculus quest can only see my chromecast ultra if its on my 2.4ghz channel of my router, and not if i set everything up on my 5ghz channel... Anyone else experience this? I am able to see the chromecast ultra and cast youtube from my phone on the 5ghz channel though...
users can now open a browser and flip Facebook the bird
Shame there isn't a launch game, but could be they sorta cracked the code earlier than expected. Does this put Knuckles to shame, will we always want a controller for that tactile feel or haptics? I can't imagine gun hand gestures to be...
Half-Life: Alyx is the next VR game from Valve, to be announced next month, releases in March 2020
This guy was my business partner before we had to deal with cancer. He has been live in person events for a year now in Cali. He is taking it online now and setting up competitions.
His focus has been rally, but he is now getting into the drifting community.
Microsoft researchers have made some leaps with VR with a project called 'DreamWalker'. These cats strapped on a VR head set, told it where they wanted to go, and the VR set navigated them to their destination but in the meantime the displayed information is a city and what not. The program...
The Tetris Effect is coming to PC on July 23, 2019. The Epic Games Store exclusive will have VR support for the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. There is a 20% discount that will lower the price from $39.99 to $31.99. The discount offer ends on August 6th.
Upgraded to the Index, so selling my Vive, minus the Lighthouses. HMD is in excellent shape - like new condition.
Tetris Effect - PlayStation 4 is $20 at Amazon.
Tetris Effect - PlayStation 4 at Best Buy is $20.
I picked up Super Hot, Doom VR, and Five Nights at Freddys (which was full price but the kids are going to lose their shit.)
You guys find any good deals on must haves? I am a bit out of the loop on VR games.
So I’m new to the whole VR world, I kinda dipped into it a little back when oculus was first announced years ago but never tried again. Now I want to build a dedicated rig just for VR gaming and VR movies. What would I be looking at in terms of specs. Is the processor important or the GPU more...
