    I finally ordered an Oculus Rift, I was going to get the Vive for the longest time, but I realized I'm not going to walk around, I just want a sit down experience, plus the rift was a little lighter in weight and $200 cheaper.

    I can't wait to get this thing, and try out some cool p̶o̶r̶n̶ games, when it ships in.... August :nojj:

    Virtual Reality. Do you live under one of these?

    With controllers and stuff, won't the Oculus end up costing the same or more as Vive? Anyway, too new for me, I'd rather let others beta the first couple of gens and iron out the bugs before i commit that much to it.

    Yea, I just didn't want to setup all the extra crap you have to with the Vive, plus I've heard it's a little bit more heavy. I dunno, I was about 60/40 Rift/Vive, it was a close call. Either way I get VR that's what I'm after, and if the Vive turns out to be something I can't live without, I'll get that too, I'm not broke @Ryan Lever

    I'm curious to see what Google's foray into the field brings. I've used Cardboard/Viewmaster phone holders for a quick and dirty VR experience. It was intriguing, but there was no killer app that I found compelling enough to keep coming back to.

    I want it mainly for future games (other than Eve, I haven't seen any good games yet), movie watching, and maybe just a small part of why I bought it p̶o̶r̶n̶
