    Thread: The VR Dream

    Been away from Vive for a while.

    Fallout 4 VR. That's what will bring me back.

    In the meantime I gotta try source an omni-direction treadmill!

    Thread: The VR Dream

    I recall reading that digital cables actually have maximum supported lengths, before signal degradation starts kicking in. 20M is definitely too long. HDMI can start failing at 15m, and USB fails...

    Getting a 1080 Ti as soon as non-Founder editions get to NZ.

    That's going to be a massive VR upgrade over my 970 SLI (essentially a single 970 for VR purposes).

    Xbox One has confirmed their VR headset.

    Switch apparently is also patented to be VR/AR-capable.

    The market is heating up.

    There has been a number of price increases over the years. For instance, kickstarter versions were $399 I believe. That was later increased gradually over time to the current price of $999. As such,...

    Very sad day. Virtuix Omni is cancelling all non-US orders.

    In a seemingly dickish move, they are also refusing to ship to...

    Yeah, it was pretty mind blowing just walking around outside my own place while doing VR inside the place. I know it's static, and the texture is crap, but that was an extremely mind-boggling...

    Oh, if you are using Vive mostly seated, you don't really need wireless in the first place do you? This is clearly a solution tailored towards room scale users, where the 3-in-1 wire gets in the way...

    That's still vastly VASTLY better than having that giant wire connecting to the computer. I imagine it will be a relatively short wire designed to be wearable.

    Honestly I'm just impressed that...

    Bloody hell, it's always glorious seeing SJW who have no idea what the tech does talking shit.

    You ought give Vive a try at some convention/store if you can.

    Movement in Oculus games are meant to be controlled using directional controls, and motion sickness is a given as a result. It's a...

    Wireless VR is already becoming a thing. Hopefully a consumer version will be out in a year or two.

    Thread: The VR Dream

    To be fair, a VR-compatible PC is a lot easier than a 4K-compatible PC.

    VR in most cases cannot benefit from multi-GPU, so you are forced to invest in a single strong GPU instead. Compared to...

    Raw Data is probably the best VR game I've played thus far, and my VR collection is pretty beefy: http://store.steampowered.com/app/436320/

    For me it was really quick. There were perhaps delays earlier on when supply was scarce, but now there should be ample supply.

    I placed my order on 16 May. The Vive was shipped on 25 May, and...

    Another key factor is probably whether you wear glasses or not.

    Vive is more roomy for glasses and has built in adjustment knob for lens distance.

    They really should have brought some of that waterproof VR Cover, which cleans very easily with anti-bacterial wipe. One wipe per use.

    The prices are technically GST-inclusive, but I've heard reports of customs messing up and people getting charged GST despite that. However, it should be easy to dispute if the customs mess up.

    Thread: The VR Dream

    To be fair, that shipping is well below market rate due to the massive volumetric weight of the HTC Vive package.

    Regular couriers would charge well over $200 for the shipping.

    Thread: The VR Dream

    Well, guess I'll just focus on the positive that Vive is at least making rounds globally. VR can't exactly spread if it's only sold out of US.

    Eventually the price cutting will get it down to...

    If I didn't already buy my Vive from US, that's definitely a price I'd pay for local supplier, since I'd essentially only pay an extra $100 or so for slightly faster arrival time and easier warranty...

    It's as though they are charging GST on top of GST, and then on top of GST again.

    Thread: The VR Dream

    I definitely see active VR more as a pro than con. That said, it does mean sedentary gaming has its place - maybe when you are utterly tired.

    With HTC Vive at least, there's nothing stopping you...

    I kinda doubt that it will offer the same quality as Vive, but at this point the market seriously needs some different tiers of products. The gap between Gear and Rift/Vive is far far too great, the...
