Very excited about this. Pretty sure the trailer alone is going to make some jobs for us. Very inspiring.
If you are making the move and gearing up, here is a good thread for you:
Latest HMD (Head Mount Display) :
As the graphic above mentions, VR is in a weird spot right now...
- Oculus Quest
Larger audience: affordable solution (Playstation price - 399 - 499$USD), mobile! (no base stations! can take out!), able to run games without a PC (mobile game -like optimized), USB Connection is on its way to run PC VR Games. User has his hands in game through pressing buttons, but it feels quite natural still. Good image quality.
Also: OLED; Resolution per-eye 1440x1600 Refresh rate 72 Hz
Has a great software ! It's like a smartphone.
- Valve Index
Premium... Expensive (999$USD); not mobile, uses base-stations, can't run games on its own, display only; good detection of user fingers; very good audio. Good image quality.
Also: LCD; Resolution per-eye: 1440x1600 Refresh 80-144Hz; FOV 130°
- HP Reverb could be listed here as well, even if he's not one of the main picks for Gaming, it remains a great piece for artists/devs.
I have never tried this one but from what I read it is more meant for: art, working (you can have a virtual workstation), seated simulations/cockpits, professional trainings etc.
It has very high graphics, but lower comfort for standing games, and apps where you are supposed to move around a lot, due to some issue with the cable if I recall correctly. And the controllers...are terrible.
Oculus Rift-S is good as well but since you can soon use an Oculus Quest to run PC-VR games, many people call it obsolete and an error to even have been made in the first place, as a Quest can do the same AND be mobile.
And basically you can run anything with any headset, or, close to that.
I am new to VR, worked with it before, but only had my HMD (Index) for a months or two. Let me know if you see mistakes here I will fix that.
Also: Motion sickness is nothing to be scared of.... Took me three days to get used to it and fly high speed cam up in the air and resize the world I'm in and whatever. Now I can understand this can vary on people.
Also you want to know your IPD before buying a headset. You never know. (Distance between your eyes)
