Hell yeah. That's how you do business.
To be fair, they got excellent partners to co-design it with (Valve and Google). The right people with the right idea can accomplish a lot.

Its even more visually appealing and look more sturdy compared to oculus and nobody can argue about that

Microcenter has been running demos with the Vive for those of you with a store nearby. I haven't gone to check it out, I know I will end up buying one if I do but I know I shouldn't buy one this generation.

I ordered both Vive & Rift. Having my Vive for almost 2 months has been an amazing new frontier of gaming. My Rift still hasn't shipped. mad.gif Considering cancelling my Rift and ordering the PS VR, not sure yet.

It's brilliantfor watching movies though! Especially animation/content with solid colours, there's no significant degradation. I've watched a few episodes of Rick and Morty lying on the floor and it's pretty special.

But any small text will be a completely indecipherable blur unless you put your face right up to the screen (which itself is a pretty fun biggrin.gif).

Can't wait to get one.... Unfortunately they're $1200 in Canada so I will be waiting until they're affordable.

$600 is my limit, will probably be a few years until they're in that ballpark.

Really? Good to know, will see if the one in Jersey has it, very interested to try it out and see if i'll bite on these Gen 1 VR experiences, i'm really trying to hold out for Gen 2 with 4k hopefully.

4K per-eye would be a massive difference, desktop use at that res should be fine i think. Yeah, I've also heard how great it is for movies.. I don't want to hear anymore though, I have so many other expenses. Keep your good experiences to yourself. tongue.gif Must resist..

I can imagine desktop use on the Vive (or any current ones) wouldn't be too comfortable, but I'd probably spend hours staring at the start menu just for the novelty of it. biggrin.gif

Current resolution is too low for desktop, but for anything without small text it's great. I watched the AMD Computex presentation on a huge movie screen while sitting on the balcony of a luxury apartment overlooking a vast cityscape- from in my computer room. I could have shared the screen with someone from the opposite side of the planet and chatted with them if I was feeling more social.

I fully expect 4k res as soon as we have availability of GPUs that can run it properly. That will get rid of the last major limitations and make VR a must-have for anyone who can afford it.

At the moment it reminds me of the first television sets being sold, when people would visit friends or relatives with one just to watch it. Not to mention there were probably the people back then muttering about how TV would never replace radio and it was just a passing fad.

I ordered a VIVE yesterday and it has already shipped lol. Mine will be here MONDAY!!!!! So excited!! I did enjoy the DK2, but after all of the Oculus shenanigans lately, they have lost my loyalty.
