Just putting out the reason I LOVE my VR headsets. I get ignored and excluded all the time and it's quite depressing. I really stand out from every social group in my school and find myself escaping to virtual reality. I have huge social anxiety, but in vr I can make new friends with the same problems. No more loneliness...
Hi guys, just got the rift S and am new to VR. Loving it so far.
My only question is, sometimes I’ve seen people using the joystick to walk like in a video game. And other times I see teleporting. Does it just depend on the game? So far I’m just having fun making my oculus home, but I’d love to be able to just walk using a joystick. Is that not an option? Will it ever be?
Hello, I'm looking for some guidance from someone with experience in Amazon prime day and maybe VR deals. (I'm in Australia, prices are $AUD)
Basically wanting to get insight on if the rift cv1 could be for sale again during prime day? They were for sale around $525 at Xmas, but since oculus stopped selling they are on Amazon for over $1000. I'm thinking maybe they have a few in stock and might sell them on prime day.
I've been wanting to get a VR headset for almost a year now. Originally waiting for Rift price to come down, then at Xmas it was cheap but talks of a new rift (now rift s) and a valve headset coming out so I waited. By the time all the info came out, it looks like valve would be best, but as valves headset isn't available in Aus I was thinking of grabbing a used ~$300 rift cv1 until the index gets released (could be another year based on steam controller). The rift s ($650) doesn't look perfect (sound quality, tracking etc) and would rather save some $$ towards a valve when it comes here. Cheers!
