Oculus Rift S, anyone? Linus forgot to mention it entirely!!!!!!! No need for extra cameras at all, for $ 400, it’s a good VR headset...

@Mergatroid Mania I have a GTX 1070. Also, I mean having it run in the background ate a lot of ram and CPU

@CHRIS C I used the rift on a i7 4770k using 2 x rx 480 gpus in cfx with zero issues. I would think you need a better video card since my 4770k handled the rift software so easily.

Great review Linus! I was already a big fan of yours, but I'm a fan for life after seeing how wonderfully you handled your little rascal Shadow. I was actually debating between Rift S and Valve Index recently, but I was afraid I wouldn't use the index enough because of setup. This is why I barely played my original Rift, I have no where to leave it set up permanently. So I got the Rift S...2 wires, no external sensors... bingo! Only problem is without the touchpad on the controllers, functionality is sometimes limited in games, which can be very annoying. Especially in something like Hotdogs, Horseshoes and Hand Grenades. Like cocking the hammer and rotating the cylinder on revolvers for instance. Still though, the simplistic setup out weighs the disadvantages, for my needs. Maybe I'll add an index to the collection as well down the road and round out my vr experience because.... damn that's nice! Thanks for sharing Linus!

Vive pro was compelling... increased res, pass through cameras, rigid head strap, built in audio. The fact he prefers OG vive head strap is baffling. Not sure this is the place to get VR advice.

so he said VR is dead and now in this video, he says maybe its not, does the idiot not realise that people detracting from VR can have a negative affect on how VR is perceived.

Isnt it bad to let a child who is less than 13 years old to play VR games, cause some studies say their brains are still developing RL 3d Shapes, and they say VR games can Damage that process?

hey I have a question, sorry if I am stupid. but how do I change the fps setting for the valve index? I want to make sure I can get the most out of this headset instead of 90hz I can get on a vive. thanks

Great video, I also was a 1st gen HTC Vive owner and waited... and waited.. and waited, for something like this. I LOVE the Valve Index. Initially I had issues with the controllers (which I had to have replaced) but that's been solved and they are amazing, and I had trouble at first finding the perfect position of the lenses to my face, but either I figured it out, or I got used to it. Now I play it every day, I don't get eye strain or fatigue in it, and I feel like I can just -stay- in VR all day. Oh yea, and 144hz mode is kick-ass.
Finally a vr headset that includes a cat.
