At this point I'm pretty wary of

1. VR Kickstarters

2. Any third party movement solution.

Tons of VR Kickstarters were fully funded and then never released or still waiting on a release. Meanwhile companies like Oculus and HTC went ahead and provided their own solutions (specifically with motion controllers). Omni-treadmills were popular for a while but never caught on.

If you're really interesting in something like this I would wait until they actually have it for sale and see how the VR community at large reacts to it. There are just SOOOO many smash and grab VR kickstarters...

I sold mine via Facebook Marketplace locally for $325, but that was last month before the Rift S had a release date. I'm not sure what they are selling for these days.

Hey guys!

I know everyone is hyped out about Rift S and Quest but if you aren't looking for an upgrade in HMD, but maybe an upgrade on how immersive your experience can get, then now is a good time to look into the WalkOVR! Live on kickstarter!

link to the kickstarter is here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/walkovr/walkovr-worlds-most-compatible-locomotion-system-f

Here's where you can see what types of platforms and games are supported: https://www.walkovr.com/games/

I'm hoping to get the Rift S, but it depends on a lot of factors. I want to see end user reviews to make sure it is worth the upgrade, plus I need a decent offer on my current rift equipment. Where did you sell yours?

Oculus has opened up pre-orders for both the Rift S and the Quest. Each headset costs $399 and will ship May 21st. You can order from Amazon, Best Buy, Microsoft Store, and probably Oculus themselves.

Meanwhile Valve released details on their Index headset. It will cost $999 for the headset, controllers, and tracking stations.

Personally I've already put my order in for Rift S and Quest!

The Oculus Rift S is an upgrade to the original CV1. It has inside-out tracking, meaning that you don't need outside sensors. It also has an upgraded screen and a halo design for improved comfort. It will sell for $399 and is rumored to be coming out at the end of the month.

The Oculus Quest is a STAND ALONE headset that also has inside-out tracking and does not require a computer. It has a similar screen to the Rift S but lacks the halo design. It will also sell for $399 at the end of the month.

Both headsets also come with redesigned Touch controllers and Passthrough+, a technology that allows you to see your area even while the headset is still on.

Personally my plan is to get both headsets. There were be many games that are cross-buy, meaning that if you get it for one headset, you can play it on both. I've already sold my original Rift and will use that money to purchase the Rift S. My birthday is also at the end of the month so I'll probably use my birthday money to get the Quest. Since I go out of town for months at a time, the Quest is a perfect way to keep playing VR when I'm away from my computer!

While the Rift S is more of lateral upgrade than a 2.0, I feel the screen and not having to use sensors is worth the purchase - especially since my sold Rift will cover most of the cost. Anyone else plan on getting the Rift S or Quest?

So, uh... Sup?

EDIT: Also, this. https://www.cinemark.com/the-matrix-20th-anniversary


Not much, some people have been playing SWTOR again. I play Rocket League sometimes.

Why waste money at the theater when you can get better quality at home! Seriously, these are at the top of the list as far as 4k releases out there go: http://www.thefuriousangels.com/index.php?topic=8613
