For me:
Australia $817 USD
Postage $110 USD
Plus 10 percent Aus import tax for item being over $1000 AUD

EQUALS $1450 AUD

Thats three PS4's

The VIVE will be good though!

The different experience is down to the Rift basically being a headset with no controllers and when they do arrive they will be found out with poor tracking abilities. Rift is only good for seated gaming ie EVE Valkyrie. Totally forget about using the Rift with the Virtuix Omni!!! The HTC Vive + Omni combo will be the VR eSports combo of choice! Mark Cuban has invest millions in them an sees it being more lucrative than the NBA and NFL, so thats saying something!

I honestly can't remember. I guess I may get the Vive before the Rift.

Ordered a vive this morning too. Should have my rift at the end of march. Had the oculus dev kits and the gearvr, but haven't had an opportunity to try the vive dev kit yet. Looking forward to comparing the two.

Pre-Ordered my Vive...

I had the Oculus Dev kit, and although impressive I always felt it was a small window to view what is "possible" -

Hoping the Vive delivers! I'm not going to lie, I was really hoping Valve was going to have a killer game to launch with this, but there's plenty of other titles I am interested in.

Isn't the field of view the same?

The resolution is the same but I read somewhere that the Oculus has bigger black bars on top and bottom than the Vive. So the vertical field of view seems to be smaller. No idea if that is due to the picture focus being further away or whatever....

Maybe I can dig up the very limited "review" in which I read that...

That statement was meant to describe what is possible with VR in general - I wasn't speaking specifically about FOV.

Everything with the dev kit was more or less a simple tech demo with mediocre graphics or an existing game that was modified to work with VR. However, just in doing that I was amazed because suddenly it became clear just how impressive things could be if they were built from the ground-up for VR, on better hardware.

I hope that clarifies what I was trying to say.

Yeah I'm really excited about the Vive. I even held off on the Oculus, since i get the "sitting in a chair -VR" experience from the gear vr. Going to have to wait a few days for my check to clear though rolleyes.gif

I don't think the Rift has poor tracking abilities, just a smaller tracking area. But definitely every sense added to VR magnifies the "presence" in the virtual world. So hand motion controllers and the ability to walk around in that space is pretty amazing.
