    i know i am 3 years late on this video but the htc vive has better tracking than oculus due to the camera quality but oculus is half the price of vive but they are pretty god damn similar.

    As long rift doesn't improve their base stations Vive will be the best cause what's the point in virtual reality if you can fking turn unless you wanna pay even more and then you can turn for 160 dollares AMAZING!

    In my opinion the oculus is better easy to set up and headset is smooth and the controllers a smaller and less clunky than the vice and it’s less expensive

    Must admit im a bit scared of getting my Rift due to this “superior 3rd sensor” idea, that just seems and sounds to give u that 1000 times experience. I just hope i’ll manage, since i havent Got any Money left to invest in that 3rd sensor. :-/

    Chicago SkaterMonth ago

    I would pick oculus 100% of the time if you are just looking to get into VR. Controllers are better, headset is better, cheaper. I agree 100% though that vive tracking is leagues better. I have 2 sensors with oculus positioned diagonally across and for the most part it works well, but those times where tracking is lost is absolutely infuriating! most of my VR games are fast paced and even a half of second of lost tracking is a total disaster. It happens way too often.

    i wish the oculus didn't need batterie's and you could just recharge them i mean what if you just have batteries that last 6 hour's and then you charge them? it's much better! the day you play whit them and a night you can just charge when you sleep that the only problem that i find whit Oculus so... do you guy's know eny good battery and battery charger i should get? thank's in advance!

    Even with having to buy the extra two sensors I think the oculus is still cheaper. I paid 450 CAD for mine, an extra sensor is 60-70 bucks. And right now you cant even buy the normal Vive headset! Only the pro version and its reeeeal expensive.

    +Matt Mystery Idk. People prefer vive (Some prefer the rift) because of VRChat. Well I think vive gives you better room-scale tracking with two base stations, but Oculus rift is a good cheaper option. (Two sensor 360 room-scale feature is still experimental. But three sensors for room-scale should work properly.)

    The Oculus definitely has the price advantage (if you want leg tracking) over the Vive. With the Oculus Rift Roomscale Bundle, Xbox One Kinect, Kinect TV Mount(Optional), and the Adapter for Kinect to PC Compatibility, coming to $628.42 on Amazon. While the Vive Pro, 3 Vive Trackers, Tracker Leg Straps(2 pack), and Tracker Waist Strap, coming to $1773.95 on Amazon.

  86. Jared Armbruster

    Jared Armbruster3 months ago

    I'm probably going with the Oculus Rift since right now it's far more affordable, and frankly the recommended specs match my PC exactly, with the one exception being the CPU. I plan to upgrade to an RTX 2080, so the lower cost of the Rift will definitely allow me to have more money left over after the upgrade.

    psovegeta4 months ago

    I purchased Oculus on a whim when I was walking thru Best Buy. I had to make a trip back when I learned my Nvidia GTX560 wasn't compatible so I dropped another $500 for the GTX1080. It works great and haven't really experienced any lose of tracking or at least not to the point that it was noticeable or frustrating. I was playing a lot of VR Chat and even played Orbus, a VR MMORPG which I think is decent but still needs to be refined. I don't like how all the characters look like Nintendo Miis. Everyone is just a floating torso with a detached head and hands. In any case, I wanted to play VR on my laptop too so I could take VR on the go. I purchased Nolo VR controllers but they're buggy as fuck. They lose tracking a lot and I think the controllers also rely on audio because the base sensor vibrates. So lets say I put on an electric fan to keep me cool because playing VR makes me sweat. The hum from the fan can throw off my tracking. It might possibly work better if they had included an additional sensor for more accurate tracking but I don't think they have plans for that.

    I went with the Vive and am pretty sure it was the right choice. My only struggle so far was the firmware update caused one of my base stations to stop working. Had to delete the file and reupdate. Once I did that it was great. need just two base stations and the rest of the set up is really fast and easy. Total cost with PC (excluding games) was about 1600.
