Gunheart came out yesterday! I'm waiting to buy it, but I'll probably pick it up in a couple weeks.

Just as an update on my issues with extension cables, I tried a DVI-HDMI adapter, with an HDMI Extension plugged into that, with the Oculus plugged into the extension. Worked a charm. Now I just need to test out a Displayport to HDMI adapter, because I'd really like to have my DVI port back (it's the only port my monitor can do 144hz on. I guess if it comes down to it, I can always swap around cables when I'm ready to play Oculus, and that won't be so bad as I'll have to string the cables up to the ceiling anyway.

Got my rift+touch bundle about a week ago along with some extenders and a third sensor. My cable management (AKA put everything on the ceiling in the same mess) came in probably 3 days ago, and with everything on ghetto rigged tripods and stands, tracking is perfect. Gotta say so far I love my rift and everything is butter smooth.

I just bought an Oculus Rift from Amazon, I've tried one at work today and I am really curious if I can get used to it. I will test it tomorrow when it arrives and see if I can handle the motion sickness, if I can't I will just send it back :D

HTC Vive just got a permanent price drop to $600. Likely Oculus putting the squeeze on them and making the pricing come down.

Great news for everyone!

Hi, I got my Oculus Rift pack yesterday and I am really enjoying it but I am not sure how long this will last. I want to ask people who are using VR for a while now, is it worth it, do you still find it enjoyably after a while or you get bored with it ? I am asking this as I don't know if it's best to keep it or give it back and wait for the technology to mature (for a couple more years)

thank you for your time

Please advise :)

At the price you picked it up, I would keep it. The price will go up to $499 soon. If anything sell it then, but I say keep it. I still enjoy my Vive, and have had it for over a year now. I've been using VR since the DK1, and I still find it amazing. Plus, a lot of great content will be out by the end of the year. I played Aircar for the first time last night and it was really good and free on the Oculus store. I don't get to play mine as often as I would like, but it I had the time I could see myself using it everyday. I've been using my Gear VR more lately with the new controller. It has some really good content as well.

Also, do you want me to add you to the Clubhouse?

I just added you. Oh and if you haven't tried it play the Budget Cuts demo. It's says it only for the Vive, but it will work with the Rift, and Touch. It's free and only a demo at the moment, but should be out this year.

Can you add me too plz Mindweaver :D

I need to read through the thread a bit tonight and see what everyone's playing. So far there's only a handful of games i use, I'm pretty much limited to sitting games (WC user) otherwise I end up running over the cable loads, and trying to wheel about while holding controllers is a PITA.

Project cars - essential imo.
Google earth
theBlu (3 short -but beautiful- demos to show new people)
Surgeon simulator - pretty crappy imo, but a good laugh with mates
Zombie training simulator
The lab
Serious sam VR - really good if you like shooters
Eagle flight - a bit childish but it's pretty cool being able to fly, very intuitive.
John Wick chronicles - okay, i can't really move around easily enough to play it though.

Games I tried and thought were crap
Detached - probably not fair, it's a cool game, but left me feeling nauseous pretty quick.
Boxing saga - bought for a friend to try, turned out to be crap. He also punched a window lol, turns out vive controllers are tough!

I also have Elite Dangerous, but I haven't got into that yet. I need to give it a real try.

I've got Fallout 4 VR purchased already, and will also get Doom when it's out.

I just added you. Have you installed Revive? It's a must have for any Vive owner. It allows you to play most Oculus games. The Oculus Store has a lot of 180 degree games which should be good for seated play. Aircar is a seated demo and it's really good. It works with the Vive controllers, but I used my Xbox One controller. Lucky's tail is a good seated game as well and free on the Oculus store. Early versions of Revive you had to do the maintenance of downloading and installing new versions, but now it will update for you which is nice.

Seriously we need to get on RecRoom together some time to meet and greet. That would be fun. TPU memebrs' VR get together!


Also keep your eyes open for The Talos Principle VR. Croteam makes some of the best VR experience.

Oh and I can't say enough good things about Batman Arkham VR. It's really good. The only downside is the main story is only around an hour, but wow! You can pick it up from Bundlestars for 19.99 plus 10% off using the "SUMMER10" code. You can probably find it even cheaper from some other key resellers as well.

Yeah, I played a bit of Arkham VR for that $10 price that was floating around a week ago. It's cool being Batman himself.

Assetto Corsa I just picked up for cheap as well. Pretty neat.

Rec Room, yes add me. Steam account name = el_diablo000 (will show steam name as OooFookaYOO I believe. :))

Microsoft Selling 100,000 HoloLens to U.S Army for £374 Million
Story here >> https://www.msn.com/en-gb/money/tec...million/ar-BBQgFeN?li=AA54rU&ocid=mailsignout

excerpsts from story

Mixed reality is coming to the battlefield. Microsoft has signed a $479 million contract with the U.S Army for as many as 100,000 of its HoloLens headsets. According to a government description given to Bloomberg, which first reported the story, the mixed reality glasses will be used to "increase lethality by enhancing the ability to detect, decide and engage before the enemy.”

How much you want to bet they're going to make Halo-like visors out of them, with an integrated x27 (full color night vision and FLIR overlay)


And then nobody will ever get issued them...

From another source i heard about not being used on the battlefield but only for training application in virtual reality.
Someone is lying and i know who for sure as always.

You might not think so, but this being used only for training applications is much more likely.

Now, if the military bought rights to build a similar product, or perhaps contracted Microsoft to make them a custom "hardened" version, then I'd say they'll probably be used on the battlefield. But in my experience, the US military loves to spend money on training equipment that will never get used, especially the Army. And Hololens simply aren't rugged enough to be used in a kinetic environment.

(I know, my comment above directly contradicts what I've said in this comment, the above one was a joke lol)

What's new in the VR world? Any signs of native integrated wireless support with 4k resolution?
I am getting so little use out of my Rift these days. I have over six hundred VR applications - mostly games and I really only played about eight regularly. That was less to do with them being particularly good, and more to do with them actually working.

So many of the ones I tried had various issues, usually launching(crashes, hangs, display errors, no image in headset though on monitor, Steam VR felt like it was being left out and launched itself only to crash the application etc).
I got tired of taking off the headset or trying to look through that small nose gap to see what was on my monitor (IF it was showing at all).

And despite getting over any VR sickness I might have once had, I still get eye strain and headaches after a while because my brain is so focused on trying to cope with the low resolution. I really think higher resolution will make the stress reduce considerably.

Pimax 8k will suit you well. But you probably gonna need a custom looped RTX Titan to keep up.
