    HTC Vive costs more than the Rift.

    The Vive is a more complex setup that includes a system for "scanning" your room with base stations and tracking your movement, so you can walk around and it scales the experience and/or warns you about getting to extremities. It also has dedicated controllers. The people that have used it have generally said it's better than the Rift and similar stationary experiences (which it can also do).

    It is more of a reference to the fact that butthurt interwebz people thought the Vive would be their saviour since the Rift would be so expensive.

    I also doubt it'll work as well in North Asia, where people usually live in small apartments.

    Ah, I hadn't seen that out there. Yeah, no.

    I also doubt it'll work as well in North Asia, where people usually live in small apartments.
    It also has a setup where you can just stay in place, standing or seated, and use the controllers (which are reportedly very good). But yeah, without the space to experience spacial stuff, the extra cost is worth less.

    No, sure. Don't get me wrong. I hope it does as well as the Rift (or maybe even slightly better). I want VR to succeed, and more importantly, I actually want HTC to live. But I'm just LOLing at the foolz, as stephenb did at the start of this thread.

    Eight Of The Best Oculus Rift Games I've Played



    Are there no more than 8? Those are some pretty bad looking games. I'd probably only try 3-4 of those. And I don't know if I'd buy more than 2 of them.
