Im hoping to leap into VR within the next 3-4 months once I have the cash saved up but I'm torn as to what I want to get. I mainly want to be able to either play sitting or standing but room scale would be awesome, and now that VR is starting to get some actual games like fallout 4 it feels like I can get some real enjoyment out of it. I was leaning toward to vive because of this but now that the rift touch is out and it seems to work well I'm kinda stumped again. Right now it seems like there isn't much point to get a vive over a rift but I want to know if there is something I'm missing, ill list the points I have seemed to find. - Rift seems to be compatible with all vive games using the touch thanks to steam making their software/environment very open - Rift is cheaper by a large margin, in Canada its $800 for the rift+touch combo but $1200 for the vive - Rift seems to support more games that just let you chill on the couch and play. Last I heard games like minecraft were rift only unless you used revive to force the vive to be compatible (I could be wrong on this lol) Up till now I always believed the vive was the better choice due to the room scale hardware, but after doing some research I cant seem to find a good reason to justify paying $400 more for it now that the Rift has their touch system out. Hoping you guys can help me with the pro's and cons of each system. While I'd rather support the Vive due to their policies on making their platform open thats a large price tag difference when I know I will be supporting them anyways with software purchases from steam. And just for reference I have a play area of up to 12ft x 10ft for room scale and full light control.
