I really hope that's not all

Even though I'm never going to buy it, I'd still be disappointed

>>322768668
It supports games I really want to play. What's the problem with that?

And it's the only option for me that won't cost me 800 to 1000€ for the headset + PC upgrade (my 860M won't run shit)

I already have a PS4, I'll pay 400€ for PSVR and will be able to run it without any fuss. headtracking in AceCombat7 and GT are enough to push me over, what can I say?
>>
>>322769080
As long as you are only expecting GT and Ace Combat and indie games and video, it's ok. Just don't be silly and expect a lot of good games outside of the launch titles.

>>322769268
The PSVR has the strongest game lineup so far, I say that as someone who will prob be ordering the rift tomorrow.

>>322769803
How so? It has Ace Combat and GT. That's it. Everything else it has either on Oculus as well or made by literally who or is not even a game.

That's Vive's "feature": walk around and fling your arms all over.
>>
>>322770153

I thought that was the whole point of the Vive. Oculus is a sit-down kinda VR headset, while the Vive is all about being able to move around. That's why they say you need 20 square meters of clear space to use it and install two cameras in your room corners to track you everywhere.

>>322770306
>>322770329
next question is

do you have a room large enough, empty enough and safe enough just like gaben
>>
>>322770467

Nope, I would have to clear out my living room to get the space needed, which is why I'll most likely get the Oculus Rift. I'll wait till both are out however and then decide. No need to jump on it right now since my DK2 will most likely support all games anyway.
>>
>>322770467
It works with any size UP TO 15 feet, the game developer can dynamically alter gameplay based on the room size and it works seated too.
>>
>>322770329
Oculus you can walk around with as well. I can do that even with the dev kit. It's just that to avoid controller occlusion you need to add the second camera behind you. Oculus and Vive are functionally almost identical, only difference is Oculus cameras require connection to the PC so you need a usb extender to put a camera behind you. And Vive's front-facing camera.
>>
>>322770620
So it's exactly like Oculus, only they are promoting a feature that no one will actually use to differentiate itself.

>>322770689
Oculus "works" as a room experience but it's not designed for that, the tracking is far inferior and it has occlusion problems.
Also Palmer said they don't want developers doing it because it limits the audience into too many subsets and shit.

So don't get a Oculus if you want room scale, it's designed purely as a seated experience and most likely won't support any major game with room scale.
>>
>>322771257
>the tracking is far inferior and it has occlusion problems.

No it doesn't. They both use optical tracking. Stop being a fanboy. It's the same shit.

>Also Palmer said they don't want developers doing it because it limits the audience into too many subsets and shit.
Correct. It's useless while the VR market is this tiny.

>it's designed purely as a seated experience and most likely won't support any major game with room scale.
Pure lies. Oculus demos everything standing in the same size as Valve rooms and there are several games with standing and walking already out. Many have already said they would have Oculus support even the games Valve used in their demos. An

>>322771649
Vive is not optical tracking senpai, it uses laser emitters which calculate how long it takes for the lasers to hit the photosensors in the HMD and controllers to pinpoint exactly where they are in 3D space. It's far more precise than optical.

Vive is probably going to be more expensive so if you don't care about room scale you should go for the Rift anyway, but don't expect it to be an amazing experience if you want room scale.

I've used the Vive, kouhai. I've seen the lighthouses. Lasers are light and are still optical tracking and subject to the same point of sight concerns like all optical tracking. Photosensors are just simple cameras.The only difference is where the light is emitted and where the cameras are. It feels great and is1:1 stable head tracking. Just like Oculus. They are practically the same except for their lenses, and Oculus is slightly wider FOV and not circular like Vive's.
>>
>>322772232
Also I should add that unless you want VR RIGHT NOW you should wait for both headsets to be released and read direct comparisons between them, pure specs don't mean much in the end since there are several factors to account for like lens quality, comfort, durability, software openness and game library.

>>
>>322772640
Oculus uses a camera to monitor infrared LED emitters in the HMD very much like the Wii controller for example.
Vive is not "optical" because it calculates the timing between light reflections rather than their visual position.
I can't say the difference in tracking quality is even detectable since I don't them, but post-release reviews should clarify that.

>>322773280
April 2016 and around 500 bucks m7.

go shill somewhere else.

all the next gen consoles are shit
>>
The Vive AR camera will possibly allow you to see yourself and your own arms with 3D skeletal tracking in virtual space like the Kinect, which would be another level of immersion.
And you will be able to do cool shit like walk in a 3D space in a GTA-like game and then sit down in a chair which could represent a car for example.
>>
I've never preordered anything in my life, but I really want to get the rift after waiting these few years. My PC is ready too.
The question is should I?
>>
>>322773636
>Vive is not "optical" because it calculates the timing between light reflections rather than their visual position.

Again I know how they work, you don't have to explain. I've used both Vive and Crescent Bay and have a DK2 and GearVR.
Lighthouse still requires line of sight between light emitter and photosensor, Screaming it's "not optical" is mainly pedantry to make lasers sound cooler. One isn't really optimal to the other and the difference between tracking is undetectable. The main difference is Lighthouse stations only need batteries and can be mobile. I much like lighthouse better as a mobile solution and think that's what they should have done instead with the desire for room-scale. A mobile headset with battery run light houses so there are no wires at all is better for room-scale even with the graphics reduction.

>this was the big announcement

Now that I got a Rift for free I'm seriously considering buying the Vive so that I'll have both.

>The Vive AR camera will possibly allow you to see yourself and your own arms with 3D skeletal tracking in virtual space like the Kinect, which would be another level of immersion.

It's a single non-depth camera. It can't do that and actually be useful.
>>
>>322774379
There's no reason not to, if your PC is ready and you intend on buying one eventually. You get an extra free game, and it's not like the price is going to drop anytime soon.

Jelly tbqh. Good job for supporting though.
>>
>>322774683
Leap motion, you mean. Magic Leap is something different. And Oculus bought Leap motion's competitor that did way cooler depth stuff. Leap motion is nice to play with but you have to get the hands in a very narrow spot, and it fucks up fingers quite often.
>>
>>322774670
That's my train of thought. I've always been against preordering anything because of uncertainty. Hopefully the price stays about $350-400

The difference is that it can track anything if you just slap some photosensors on it, it allows for cheap peripherals like a VR glove for example without having to upgrade your tracking.
>>
>>322773608
You just need to play a game at a slightly increased resolution at 75 fps

Reminder that Oculus won't come with the Touch controllers on launch so the "cheaper" price is misleading.

>>322775539
>75 fps
You mean 180?
>>
>>322773608
The recommended card by nVidia for VR is a GTX 970.
And it's probably the "buttery smooth ultra high settings on the latest games" kind of recommended.

It's an optional peripheral, I'm fine with not having it. I'm either gonna be using mouse and keyboard or the bundled xbone controller

Ideal FPS is 90.
>>
>>322775529
>it allows for cheap peripherals like a VR glove
Nope it only works for rigid bodies, Valve was very clear on that, a bendable thing like a glove can't use lighthouse effectively. The battery power for the photo sensors vs an IR light aren't that much different so I don't see how it's any better for add on peripherals.
>>
>>322775909
Nowadays the trend is to make engines as optimized as possible, a lot of newer games run better on my GTX 460 than 8 year old games for example, I don't think the required specs for VR will increase THAT much in the medium term.
>>
>>322775909
If VR gets a decently sized consumer base, you can expect the next generation of AMD and nVidia cards to focus on VR to get the best frames out of them as possible.
>>
>>322775843
>And it's probably the "buttery smooth ultra high settings on the latest games" kind of recommended.
It isn't. A 770 isn't enough, I know from experience. It's not like there are a whole lot of cards in between a 770 and 970/290 that could possibly work.

>>322776698
I was thinking about getting both too, but Hover Junkers really isn't worth that much to me. I'll wait and see if there really are a decent amount of room-scale games that don't support Oculus.
>>
>>322773280

Might as well go occulus. Vive has way too much tacked on stuff. I'm getting a vive though since I'm waiting for dx12 cards and I tried both and vive is the better fit for me even with all the extras.

Because you couldn't do all that much more with two, would be my guess.

Yes, it's a leap motion on top a Rift. Funny how all the devs who use it, say it's kind of pointless and don't like Leap Motion. A single non-depth camera isn't all that useful for real AR. It's a nice gimmick, but not much else. You need actual depth for AR to become useful and precise for real usable AI.

>hyped for a $600 piece of hardware with NO GAMES

This is PC 2.0, why the fuck are people hyped? The thing has no good software yet and never will because it lacks the infastructure to support proper software development. 99% of Oculus's adopters run pentium 1 PC's, good games for tis pipe dream-tier level of hardware simply isn't feasible, Facebook is just going to port farmville over and call it day.

Those who buy Vive too are also part of a minority who own high-end hardware, there's simply not enough people with $1000+ PC's running the most bare minimum specs to build an install base that'll allow for high end software development.

Come back when Rift/Vive actually gets games that aren't low-budget Facxebook jewed indie titles. Hopefully by then people will collectively drop the device realizing in reality it actually costs $1600 to even fucking run properly.
>>
>>322782191
You can use kb+mouse with VR, and there's absolutely no way a mouse (a 2D controller) matches the precision and usefulness of the Vive controllers (extremely precise 3D controllers which represent your hands in 3D space).

They're pretty much the same as someone that has tried CB and the Vive. It's going to come down to games. Oculus seems to be winning there but all their games currently are without motion controls which is boring as shit. I've had enough of that with my DK2 already.

Vive might have less launch games but at least they're putting a foot down and launching with motion controls as Oculus should. Gamepad feels shitty in VR unless it's some simple 3rd person game.

The fuck are you talking about? VR is not meant to replace the desktop workflow, it's for games and other 3D stuff.

And even then it will have a big advantage in 3D modelling or really anything that benefits from 3D vision and control if you want "serious" uses.

Would you say a better, bigger screen and better sound is only for documentaries?

In terms of gaming, and keep in mind we're on /v/ not on your other autism chan board, yes, that's all it's good for without the next level controls it needs.

>If you ever used a good VR you would know just how amazingly immersive it is even in the most simple and game-like environments, you are not just watching and controlling a character, you ARE the character, it's a huge perspective shift.
this doesn't require a headset be strapped to your face. it can be done at a software level with head tracking on a common desktop display. the amount of immersion you lose only applies when you get out of your seat and you're not getting out of your seat and doing anything interesting without some seriously next level input devices. motion control, voice activated futuristic data input...it's not there breh.
>>
>>322766414
I considering getting the vive before the delay, but now I am ordering the rift instead granted it is within my budget.

They both seem similar in terms of specs with the vive likely being a fair bit more expensive, I can barely afford the rift as it is.

It seems like HTC is playing catch up, the camera could be useful but I don't really care much for it. The improved ergonomics and optics is a step in the right direction however.

Oculus seems like a better bang for buck option right now, it all boils down to price.

All consoles support motion control nowadays, they are just tilt controls and not as all-in as the Wii nunchuck but it's still there.

Also just because it's a fairly niche controller it doesn't mean it's a fad.
Racing wheels for example are expensive peripherals and are only good for a specific kind of game but they are not fads, they are simply the ideal kind of controller if you are serious about racing games.

VR will probably be fairly similar in this aspect at least for a while, but it has the advantage of working with pretty much any game because it's simply a 3D screen.

Did anyone get their free oculus cause they backed the kickstarter?

i-i did..
>>
>>322785587
It's not only about the head tracking, it's about the perspective shift that happens when the display fills your vision.
You instinctively start to "believe" what you see once you have a display attached to your face and low-latency tracking, it's not just a matter of control schemes or photorealism or whatever.

not that guy, but none of these displays come close to filling your vision. you are left with black all around and then the screen in front.

not to mention 4k is the minimum resolution where this would even come close to beating a normal computer monitor, and who the fuck wants to spend the money on a 4k machine for high framerate and then use one of these? the $600 would be better off spent on a normal 4k computer monitor

i think you know, not having a display strapped to my face would also add to the sense of immersion.

and having controls that don't have me sitting at a desk using a keyboard and mouse

all you have is a more difficult to drive display device that requires you mount it to your head to use with a limited software library that will likely be part of some mega jews walled garden utopia

Everyone is aware.

They are not comparable. You don't get a sense of actually existing in the world with head tracking on a monitor. It just makes it seem like you're looking through a window.
>>
>>322780862
but even with miniaturization it will be shit.

There is a really easy way to test if something isn't VR:
If you can look away from it, it's not VR.
>>
>>322787020
How can someone misunderstand how VR works this hard? The screen follows your head, it essentially replaces the real world with a virtual one, it's not an object you look at.
You are probably not aware of how the human brain works, it makes a HUGE difference even if you are "aware" it's not real.
>>
>>322787020
The difference is scaling. In order to get an equivalent 3D experience with Vertical FOV and proper scaling you need high resolution panels that cover the entire room. This is called a CAVE, has existed for years and cost 100s of thousands of dollars. Still technically better than HMDs, yes,but so? Way too pricey.
>>
>>322786861

if a monitor is big enough, you effectively can't look away without getting out of your seat. the main difference here is you're a retard with a monitor attached to your head.

>The screen follows your head
this is meaningless unless you're not seated which is the entire problem with input devices: they're shit unless the assumption is you will be seated. or your neck is capable of horizontal 360 degree movement.

>You are probably not aware of how the human brain works, it makes a HUGE difference even if you are "aware" it's not real
you can place a monitor with vr desktop in front of your face and unless your neck has some surreal movement capability, will encompass your entire meaningful fov, especially with the advent of those cancerous curved display.

No because you won't have the necessary lenses for the realistic field of view and you won't have a headset blocking the light coming out from the real world.
Oh and the screen stays in place so unless you stand completely still it won't be immersive at all.

Reminder that with VR we open up the possibility of foveated rendering which will be the biggest breakthrough in computer graphics in decades.

With proper eye-tracking it will only be necessary to render 1% of a scene in full resolution and detail instead of 100% meaning that the performance cost is drastically reduced. Aside from the obvious increase in immersion, VR games will also look significantly better at a fraction of the performance cost compared to a traditional 2D display.

The tech is already here, expect it on the 2nd generation HMDs.

nobody is quibbling that VR isn't a quantum leap in entertainment technology. simply it require a lot of resources and at the present state of the art the market can't provide a good hardware base to run decent VR.
plus nobody actually wants to walk in their rooms. but if Facebook, Valve have Disneyland as their main customer this might work, but how much they can pay?

just like all gimmicks, your initial impression is you were wrong. then it's only a matter of time before it wears off and all the shortcomings begin to surface.

this is exactly what they shitters are banking on. you being completely enthralled for a few weeks then telling all your friends. months later when you realize you're not using your ShitVR(tm) device and that you've been lied to and begin contemplating suicide, you can thank me for trying to stop you from making a terrible mistake.

vr is nothing without next level controls but a gimmick. the headset is the EASY part, everyone is fucking making one. the reason why they suck ass is they require extremely limiting input devices. how do you inpuit data? how do you control shit? if you're strapped to a desk it's nothing more than a more difficult to drive display that requires you constantly be swapping between a proper desktop monitor with the meat of the gimmick being fully capable of achieving without strapping a display to your head like a retard.

because you still need to be able to input data. for those of us who are used to inputting data on a keyboard at 100 wpm, the only way to simulate this in motion is with some seriously next level voice activated controls.

motion is okay, it's almost there even but it's only one part of the picture.

you VRtards are SERIOUSLY underestimating the importance of the controls and it's depressing is all i can say. it's not even anywhere remotely near there yet.

Its mostly their trainwreck PR, The vive looks decent now. my biggest complaint before was the controllers being too large and chunky and they seem to have fixed that. But fuck me If I am going to wait another 3 months for similar specs.

The camera is not a huge deal to me, neither is the tracking system, both seem adequate to me. Roomscale tracking won't become a thing for me until the HMD is wireless.

I still prefer oculus touch's design and gesture recognition. I haven't tried either HMD so I won't be able to know which one's a comfier fit.

Absolutely. When the Oculus was first shipping their dk1's back when it would take like 3 months to come in Japan was getting theirs weeks later. I don't know what kind of shady background deals were going around but Japan got priority shipping.

Now that I think about it Palmer's quite the weeb. It would suprise me if Japan's exclusive "early access" was to give them a leg up on vr dating sims while the rest of us were too busy building shitty unity physics games.

you're undermining input controls, the most important factor in VR's success.

overlooking the fact we constantly input text in online video games on the PC means you don't care about the quality of VR which means chances are you've already given your money to them and are thus suffering from post purchase rationalization or are a shill who realizes now they must do or say anything they can to deflect the very problematic aspects of VR, which are factually the input devices.

the display is cool, nobody is disagreeing but it's hampered too greatly by needing a basic kbm or gamepad to use. motion controls and data input methods BOTH need to be there, they're not. it's a fucked of desktop monitor, nothing else.

definitely a shill. to assume that the only game PC gamers play is WoW means you're utterly clueless of the culture of PC gaming which is not anywhere near limited to any one game but rather strewn across thousands of games.

voice chat is also awful. multiple people speaking at the same time sucks. being able to input text is a basic requirement of PC gaming and you're denying it because it's a serious limitation of VR.

things won't get better for you until you embrace the limitations and demand they improve. all you're doing now is shilling a gimmick and you look pathetic as a result of it.

I care about the quality of devices I will be using for the foreseeable future. Data input is important. VR disregards a staple of PC gaming to sell you shit. They have to sell you their walled garden software. That's all they care about and you fell for the meme.

Most of this discussion is so asinine I stopped reading.

As a someone who has invested in VR "research" I have several of the current gen devices so I'll put a few things to rest:

The Vive's "Lighthouse" uses lasers (a form of optics, for the illiterate), but due to the design it is more accurate than the id'd led optical tracking used by the Oculus design, especially at range.

Having forward facing cameras added is cheap, and necessary for AR and those who aren't into sensory deprivation, that 1080p camera in your phone just isn't expensive any more.

Wearing full headsets is a niche, but not a small one, expect to see a huge market for everything from stock traders to automotive engineers, and of course hard core gamers.

Sony is going to make a sony device cover anything for their consoles, and while it's frankly not as good as the other headsets you won't care because you games will make you look like a heroin junky passed out on your couch, enjoy the ride.

Microsoft's offering is currently a bad joke, please no one go there.

The future:
Plenoptic projecting headsets are where it's at, they will eliminate most vr sickness while making environments much better looking without faking focus and motion blur. They aren't small enough, but Google and a few other companies are working on it.

Plenoptic cameras will allow real vr imaging and already work, there simply aren't good ways to view the output yet without rendering it to a flattened image, projection will give us native playback for your vr porn.

Foveated rendering will allow the above at decent performance on soon to be current hardware, getting devs to do it well will take a while.

VR support can be slapped onto most games and work fine, but games must be developed from the ground up for motion controls and / or room scale VR that the vive focuses on. Hence. motion control is a meme and vive gets no games.

so you can do what? all those tech demos they keep showing?
motion control is a confirmed MEME that''s good for nothing but tech demo's like "job simulator".
And if by some miracle, motion control does take off, then oculus touch is the far superior motion control method.

The reason Oculus touch will be absolute shit is because the latency will be horrible. There will be an entire extra step of lag where the camera will need to process the image to determine where your hands are.

Motion controls will be great for any game you use your hands. Pick up shit, swing swords, shoot guns... Do you really have this fucked up of an imagination

Yes, currently people are rendering each frame twice. Read this page and search "entire scene twice" to see why you need to do it. Has nothing to do with the game designers

VR is still in its infancy, some guys figured out only recently that if you add a fixed frame of reference (like a nose) the nausea is pretty much gone.

So I would wait until the second or third generation of HMDs because there's still a lot to figure out.
>>
>>322796829
it's using the leap motion supplied DLLs
even on the latest ones it has problems
also you see me taking my hand hands in and out of the scene to recapture and hopefully fix it but it was not having any of it.

while mocumocudance has weird mappings causing some strange stretching, the tracking itself has problems in most programs
its just not the right solution. If they could widen the range of it and increase detail at the same time, it could have been a good product. But the low resolution of the scans and limited FoV just ruins it.

I've used both touch and Vive. You are bullshitting the latency thing.They are just as good as Vive's latency wise.. The camera is not doing pose tracking, if that's what you are thinking, gestures are done by capacitive sensing which is much faster. Location is by IR LED, same as the headset, which is just as fast.

what like chivalry? it's no where near that easy, the character would have to be animated in real time, and couldn't just be tacked on like HMD support has been to hundreds of games already. Instead, the game would need to be developed exclusively for motion control (which will never happen because it'll be such a tiny segment of the market)

HTC said that preorders open Feb 2016 and ship April 2016.

If you buy the Oculus you get an inferior product. That's the only reason why they're rushing to open preorders tomorrow, because they know they can't compete on actual product quality. Same reason they're pushing hard for exclusives.

incorrect. They are charging money for a tech demo, and taking advantage of retards who will pay for anything with motion control, since they will be so desperate for anything where their motion controls can be used (because no games). As a result, a "game" where you sit in 1 room, and fling around physics objects with motion controls. It's a demo that costs money.

It's total bullshit. The controllers have to have the same location latency as the headset, or it wouldn't work. And if you want to talk about latency of the triggers down the cable to the PC, I'll trust the ones who made the 360 controllers and use USB 3.0 for their connection.

The camera IS doing positional tracking man, they use IR leds that are picked up by the camera.

http://www.pocket-lint.com/news/134252-what-is-oculus-touch-and-how-does-it-work-with-the-new-oculus-rift

It says it in there, what do you think the little spots are on the controller?

The oculus touch clearly wins on ergonomics though which is the priority for most people, I agree with you on that.

One advantage lighthouse tech has over oculus is that you can add random peripherals to your scene that have the lighthouse sensors and it wont slow down your machine because the processing done doesn't require processing an image.

POSE tracking not Positional tracking.
You were claiming additional latency from the camera tracking which is untrue. Image processing of light is very fast now, a few years ago, you would be right, but today that is wrong. In addition it's easier to calculate prediction models quickly using image recognition, and prediction is what brings latency down.

Vive lighthouse set up requires mounts on wall and rift sensor doesn't. There is no evidence what so ever that lighthouse is some how "more accurate". Lighthouse is better for room scale VR which is good for tech demos but has no games and will never ever get games because it makes up such a small portion of the market
>>322799846
It's falling into the same trap as Wii and move. Its removing normal controller features in return for motion controls, where as oculus touch simply adds motion control, while maintaining all controller features (except dpad), as well as supporting individual finger tracking, making it objectively superior (as a result they're selling it separately cos it'll probably cost $150+)

I don't know if I can trust the Vive. Their approach seems to be wanting to push for good hardware, but they've done little else in any other area, and even their main focus is in question since it would seem the Oculus catched up with them in that regard.
HTC vive is looking up to be nogames central, with oculus having more brand recognition and thus more support I think buying an oculus will be a far safer purchase.
