So you are thinking of buying a VR headset? These first generation virtual reality head mounted displays are expensive and you want to feel sure that the one you invest in is the best one available on the market. But it isn’t that straight forward, each headset has it’s strengths and weaknesses, each have their focus from an overall gaming experience.
I am lucky enough to own both an Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, and just like my children, I cannot possibly pick a favourite. I can, however, see the positive and negatives in each. One has slightly ginger hair for instance, but I love him just the same, I digress.
In my video I go into high (at an hour in length you could argue too high) levels of detail in several key areas, comparing and contrasting the merits and drawbacks of both the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift systems. The comparison is, naturally, focused on the HMD visuals and audio, to include the wireless controllers would not make it a fair comparison at this time due to the fact the Oculus touch controllers are not yet available. The review also factors in the ordering, sales support and after-care experienced as these are key to making the right decision.
I hope you enjoy the video review, be sure to comment and subscribe for more reviews on the Vive and Rift software.
