. Although, the tracked controllers for the oculus seem kinda neat.
Yup, the tracking systems are completely different. From what I've seen the Vive is far more accurate as far as tracking is concerned, and you get to walk around using it. Although i don't think i'd enjoy walking around, who knows? Maybe there'll be something really cool that comes from it.
The Oculus system reminds me of Kinects tracking, it might perform okay in a controlled environment, but i think it will start to show a lot of inconsitency in peoples houses.
All of this is from what I've seen/heard, not facts just opinions
But i'd put my money on the Vive being superior in every aspect, for one it's being built by HTC, not exactly amateur hour, and they're partnered with Valve, i think that speaks for itself.
