*Not a sales plug in the slightest, but for $150 this set is the exact one I bought and it's pretty solid if you're interested in just trying VR and not wanting to spend a ton. Make sure you get the other video adapters too if needed since they aren't included. The wands can eat batteries too, so stock up.
If you’ve got a decent computer and want to check out VR I would just grab a refurbished Windows Mixed Reality headset. It’s half the price of the newly announced Rift and can run pretty much everything the HTC and Rift can. I picked up an HP model for under $200 with all the accessories.
This new Rift being standalone and wireless is awesome, but I never really felt that “Wow” moment with things like Google Cardboard or the Samsung Gear. It always felt like I was inside an older game looking through a screen door. It’s hard to explain.
Yes, i use one and it works very well for the price. I have oculus rift experience as well, and i highly recommend windows mixed reality for a budget vr system. They work with almost any vive game, even if it doesn't say wmr support.
At that price, I'd suggest looking into this one, that way you have the controllers as well. Because it's hard to buy the controllers separately later.
Holy crap, if Lenovo did that to me, I'd just ask them to send it back and see if I can fix it myself. Go watch an ifixit teardown and about 3 hours of any of Louis Rossman's videos.
And if it's completely unrepairable, there's cheaper options.
I'd want to use this headset and the vive controlers since they have better tracking. Less deep blacks, but better resolution and works fine with vive games. It's also be cheaper than repairing the vive headset.
There's a reason you don't use the two you have.
Most of my gaming is now in V R these days after getting a decent headset.
Huh, looks like they've gotten cheaper.
Isn't MW5 supposed to support VR?
[link] is a similar deal, but it is refurbished.
edit: It seems to be $10 higher than normal right now, but if you can't wait for the next time this goes on sale, the price is similar
Lol, microsoft store.
Maybe this will help.
Not a vive, but I've got the lenovo version, which is basically the same thing, and I really like it. Also, the refurbished one is like 160... and in stock.
Here. Although it's refurbished but I know five people who have bought one including myself and they've all worked perfectly.
I mean, there's only a handful of notable exclusives. So just look up the top PSVR games and check if they're on steam. I only know of Farpoint, RE:7, RIGS, statik, and Moss. And of those only Moss interests me at all.
PCVR has games like Robo Recall and Lone Echo (through ReVive), and FalloutVR. And my personal favorites, Pavlov and Beat Saber. And many, many others.
I highly recommend getting WMR. However, at $150, why sell PSVR? [link]
wkeam is right. No point in getting the DK2 unless you are a collector. The HP WMR can be had for $10 more dollars and will be a drastically better experience. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CSFYJKD/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_TADIBbR21ZMT8
Hmm, it does say gamepad support on the steam page. What have you tried doing so far? From what I've read, it seems to just work with an Xbox controller or equivalent
HP - Mixed Reality Headset and Motion Controllers (2018) (Renewed) [link]
Both of those are about $200ish which is an amazing price for full room scale vr.
>I'm not familiar with that particular vr headset, but I know on a vive (which is 90hz), settings need to be turned down with a 1070ti.
This is a really great point. I have the HP - Mixed Reality Headset and Motion Controllers (2018). Which basically has the same specs as the Vive. If this place is to be trusted: https://hothardware.com/reviews/evga-geforce-rtx-2070-xc-review?page=3 Looks like the 2070 is 25%-ish better than the the 1080, but only 5%-ish slower than a 1080 ti. At least in synthetic benchmarks.
The 2070 is looking better and better. Unfortunately it looks like a lot of the cards are showing up with poor quality control. So i'm a little nervous buying now.
I'm not sure she'd be up for it though... or for buying a second headset.
Side note, I'm not talking a pimax or vive pro here.
Try Amazon US, there are some certified refurbished HP ones available for $150 now:
new ones are $250:
Check if this ships to Canada
HP - Mixed Reality Headset and controllers
Is this the same one
HP - Mixed Reality Headset and Motion Controllers (2018) (Certified Refurbished) [link]
> So yeah as soon as a good, cheap, PC VR headset
$150 is pretty cheap. Comes with everything you need, controllers included, and it has the easiest setup time and a higher resolution than Rift / Vive. It does have some drawbacks in sweet spot and tracking, as it has to track controllers from the headset itself meaning you will lose tracking behind the back, but for most games you shouldn't have too many issues.
It supports all games on SteamVR and Oculus Store as well.
If you don't want one refurbished you can get brand new headsets for $200 here: [link]
Hard to go wrong this deal, but if you end up getting a Rift and only need one of the sensors, u/bringbacktron is looking for an extra one.
