Virtual Reality
« on: March 01, 2015, 12:59:25 pm »
Wasn't sure where to post the news about the new Valve headset, so I figured I'd just make a catchall VR thread. I'm excited! I like seeing more and more companies getting in on this. Bring on the VR Wars.

Here are some (but not all) of the contenders.


Oculus Rift's Crescent Bay


Sony's Project Morpheus


Microsoft's Hololens (Not quite the same as the others.)


Razer's OSVR


Valve/HTC's Vive



So Valve and HTC are collaborating on a headset now.

Also, Valve has a press release during GDC this week. 3pm on 3/3/15. I know it's done to death but I still get a little excited. Maybe, (if hell freezes over), we'll get some new game announced to accompany the headset's release? A game made for VR?

I might check it out for Star Citizen eventually. Gonna wait for second or third gen models though.

Seems like a good idea to let them work some of the bugs out first, I agree.  Most of these still look like prototypes.

I do REALLY want to try VR, though.
