I had an Oculus Rift bundle, got it for 399£ and I did use it for a while then I got bored with it. It's a nice gadget to own but I think it still needs to evolve a lot, I sold it for the same price so did not lose anything...I'll go back to VR when it gets better

I have a Samsung Gear VR. I tried both the Oculus Rift and Playstation VR and didn't care for either. VR gaming seems gimmicky to me and I just like being able to watch a movie or sporting event in VR, not play games. The Gear VR is fine for just that for me. I can watch Hulu and Netflix shows and movies and feel like I'm in a theatre.

the WMR headsets have a few flaws, but they're so much cheaper and easier to setup than the vive, so its a lot better for occasional use without needing to wire up those sensors and remap everything

I have purchased an Oculus Go. For me, is the most cost-effective. you get the desired audio/video quality at a more affordable price.

So my mate got his RTX 2070 today so i have picked up the RX 580 and all is running good but as i have not payed for the Lenovo explorer yet my mate has took it back to do some testing with his new GPU hehe :)

Will get the VR back tomoz evening so will be testing some of the games i have that support VR and can't wait.

I'm also supprised at how the lenovo explorer worked with an RX 460 and some of the games i tried, especialy Project CARS - Pagani Edition.

Didn't even know they made Project CARS - Pagani Edition and it seems to be built just for VR and although the FPS was not great due to the RX 460, i never felt funny or sick and rather enjoyed it hehe and it's going to run a lot better on this new RX 580.

Does anyone know of any good free games to test to by any chance :)
