[TT] Reality Razer's new HDK 2 VR headset matches Oculus Rift specs for $200 less - Page 2

post #11 of 32
I want to buy something like this, but my problem is if stores get "hardware locked" then they screw themself from the beginning, I dont want to use this kind of money just to find out a game I want is only available on one type of headset! I only intend to buy one headset per user, not one per game/platform

The fact that the VR market is fracturing due to different kind of headsets is also one of the biggest flaws, I think. With some many different headsets and games that only work on one headset, how can it possibly stay lucrative for investors to invest in the VR market, which is already small, after it has also been further fractured by the aformentioned headsets? I don't see it as very succesful business as of right now.

It is just the start of an industry.
Everyone doing their own thing now and after some time there will be a standard.

Razer does not produce stuff cheaply. The fact that Oculus Rift costs so much is ridiculous especially when the founder promised it would be affordable.

Oculus Rift became a joke once it got bought by Facebook. There was no synergy at all. Zuckerberg was just awash in cash and decided to spend money. And once the oculus founder got his payday; his product became crap. It's not competitive price-wise or feature-wise with whats out there. I hate it when big companies acquire things that start out cool.

I'd like to use VR while playing a flight / space sim but not while standing or moving about because of the cables... House of the Dying Sun or MechWarrior Online would be great with a VR headset.

Probably not manufacturing cost, but cost along with the R and D expenditure. There is no way the hardware inside those suckers costs that much.

Have used Razer's HDK 1 for a while, OMG what a pain. The HDK hurts your face so much, lenses almost touch your eyeballs. No room for even the smallest glasses and no dioptre settings at all.
If they use the same shell i wouldnt even go for it if it was 400$ less.. If its a new shell with more room for glasses or decent diopter settings and somewhat more comfortable than a brick then it would be nice.

Sure, it's the cheapest VR solution on the market... but I'd just suggest saving if you want VR and can't afford the Vive right now.
100% agree. Hand controller + room-scale brings VR to the next level. It really brings you into the "Matrix". Hard to go without it after you have try it!

I agree competition is good, unless that competition has exclusivity in mind. I think the VR market would be better off if Occulus just stopped existing.... rolleyes.gif
Largest room scale i have seen is the Lighthouses 27ft apart.
