My buddy got an HTC Vive because apparently he can spend $800 on a new technology without hating himself.

I tried it today and...holy shit. I was expecting it to be pretty neat, you know, a cute little evolution in technology. Then I put the fucking thing on and I couldn't help but grin like an idiot. Shit feels real. Something as simple as making the controller blow a balloon for you, then tapping on said balloon, is a whimsical experience that can make a grown man giggle like a faggot.

After the "training video" (with the faggy balloons) I played Space Pirate Trainer, which was also tits.

I told myself I won't get a VR headset until the technology has been around for awhile and stable, not to mention cheaper. But now I fucking want one.

I have the Gear VR that you use with the phone. Pretty cool, but I'm waiting until they figure out how to get an entire VR experience in a set of untethered goggles. Or until I can get the Vive/Rift dirt cheap so I don't feel so bad dropping $1k on jacking up my puter.

What happened to opening the safe with tax return money?

VR is pointless right now. The "games" are basically tech demos and there is no other content available for VR aside from porn. You can't even see where you're shooting your mess. Who wants a drawer full of stained t-shirts and sweat pants?

One or two years until the software and hardware have the bugs worked out of it?

Porn on the Gear VR sucks. Got a controller finally for it this week, that helps so much with games.

True VR would be something that could trick you into not knowing the difference between the real world and virtual world. 20 year spoiler alert, like the movie Brainscan.

What producer is the porn by? Also, did you have the right perspective selected in Milk VR?

I ask because I thought it wasn't that bad.

Bought the Gear VR. Pretty cool but limited. Most are demos and everything is short and the phone heats up quick, so you either have to sit in front of a fan or hook up some small usb pc/laptop fans. It does heat up fast and shuts off
One demo type, is a Jurassic World experience, where you are near a brontosaurus looking dinosaur, in a forest, that wakes up and comes over to you and sniffs you. An unreal experience and great CGI, albeit short and not worth $100 alone but, as they go along, things will get cooler. Even the 360 degree photos are incredible. Just immerses you, like you are standing right there. Some great videos, Olympic sledding/skiing, canyon swinging, tight rope walking, roller coaster, underwater video, puts you right there
Weird part is not seeing your body and also. make sure you don't have anything near you, that can be knocked over.

I would love to get the other VR stuff but, not paying out a grand or close to it

If you can afford $100 easily enough and are able to deal with only a few cool things now, in hopes that more will come soon, then get it.
Best Buy has a deal, where if you are getting the new Samsung s7, it's s free

I might be the shitty thread starter, but you ruin every thread you touch.

Remember a few years ago when every new Flat-screen TV had to have 3D as a feature? I'm sure VR will be pretty cool in first person perspective games, but the biggest games are League of Legends, DOTA 2, and Wow. VR is pretty much pointless to people who play those types of games.

I'm jumping into PSVR.

Best Buy has the $200 black Friday deal that includes Astrobot and Moss on their website. It doesn't include the move controllers, but I was getting those for Dreams anyway.

There is also a $250 bundle that includes the controllers, but I already had one of the games.
