Hey, I'm intersted in VR and have a more than capable PC... (Ryzen 7 w/1080), but was wondering what all do I need for a basic entry level setup for head unit and controls?
I agree. And prices on the Windows Mixed Reality headsets have been bouncing up and down. They were down to $200 not all that long ago. If you're not in a huge rush, keep an eye on Amazon or eBay and you could easily score a headset with controllers for around $200.WindowsMR on Amazon for~ $250 is the best entry https://www.amazon.com/HP-Mixed-Rea...TF8&qid=1518118764&sr=8-4&keywords=windows+mr. I think Oculus is better, but not $150 better.
Would also look at the list of games that rift/vive have, might find one has better games than the other.
Though both headsets can generally play both stores games with some 3rd party support, it may affect your decision if you do not want to mess with said software.
Honestly I think they should try out the controls...I have never held a VIVE control (assuming no knuckles atm), they appear overly bulky and not near as ergonomic as the RIFT...I am sure someone who has both can chime in on this.
you can technically play 'most' rift exclusive games on vive and 'most' vive games on rift... the only limitations being that some rift games might use functions the vive controllers don't have (IE capacitive buttons for pointing) or some vive games needing huge roomspace that rift can't do as easily.. but as a rift user I haven't run into any problems with this at allHmmm thanks for all the input....seems like rift vs vibe, I'm gonna check out the game list!
