It's hilariously sad how AR vs VR has become a fanboy war simply because each console manufacturer is doing their own thing atm.

Is Kitler being [almost] pro VR?

Paraphrasing a bit.

"This is the device that will take virtual reality mainstream and deliver a virtual reality for everyone," Koo said during Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe's keynote panel. Though details were scarce, Koo told the crowd that the new headset will be "22 percent lighter" than the prior model and will receive improvements to the side-of-head touchpad and "overall feel." A full list of compatible devices wasn't confirmed, but Koo said that every 2015 Samsung handset will be compatible with the new GearVR.

The most mainstream-friendly announcement that came alongside GearVR was that Netflix will come to GearVR "in the next few months," along with VR apps for Hulu, Vimeo, and TiVo. GearVR will also be paired at launch with an app called Oculus Arcade, which will allow GearVR users to fake like they're standing in front of arcade cabinet versions of such classic games as Pac-Man, Gauntlet, Spy Hunter, and Sonic the Hedgehog. Oculus executives also announced that November will see the launch of GearVR's 1.0 SDK for VR developers.

 
Regarding the launch, on the stream he specified in US it'll launch around Black Friday, and rest of world a little bit after.
 
Bullet Train game looks amazing!

Made by Epic.

Facebook now has VR videos!

Hey, I have an S6 Edge so I might just get this ;)

I think currently Vive and OR have the same resolution and refresh rate.  Unless OR is still doing that non-RGB thing.  
Not sure how good the controls are for OR, but I think overall Vive is ahead quite a bit in this area.  Especially with that Lighthouse business.  
Personally like the look of OR better.  
Vive reminds me of eyes.  
Also OR comes with lots of exclusives apparently.  

On the other side of things, PSVR looks awesome, resolution is a bit lower, frame rate is higher though, controls will be pretty good.  
Mostly worried about support.

Yeah OR is still using pentile.

Tech wise Vive has the slight advantage imo, both with headset and tracking. I actually prefer the look haha.

But OR has the exclusives :(

I wonder if people will hack OR exclusives to work with Vive. Wouldn't find out till OR releases though :(


Point being, I'm going to have to wait till next year for VR ::((

Mmm_fish_tacos

I'm getting vive. I don't expect vr exclusives to last long. Plus vive has that light house thing and I hope that will show you where your key board is, cause you'll still need to press a lot of keys in elite dangerous

Oculus VP of Product says Oculus Rift will cost at least $300#1

Mitchell explained why Oculus isn't currently taking pre-orders for the Rift by saying "there isn't a big reason to take your money too far ahead of the device." He continued: "What I think about all day long is user experience, right? So if I'm going to promise you something and you're going to hand me a significant amount of money or whatever it is--we all know it's going to be at least $300--if you're going to hand me $300 today, I am not going to be excited to tell you: 'OK, in nine, 10, 12, 11 months, whatever it is, you're going to get something in return.' The longer you wait, the more you're like, 'This is obnoxious.' "

$300 is a good starting price. Like he said, though. It had better come with some great experiences out of the gate. Now, here's the question. If Rift releases at that price and is show to be technically superior to PSVR, will Sony respond by ensuring a sub-300 price tag?

It wouldn't matter. They won't be world's apart even if rift was better. But I'm sure sony knows that 300 is the ceiling for catching most people.  And sony has the advantage of their break out box that doubles frame rate and makes the image flat on the tv so others can see what's going on.

Oculus Rift can also double framerate. Even Gear VR has timewarp.
