one hell of a run on sentence  :lol

I personally wouldn't know the anser though as I am currently out priced with these and am more in the waiting game anyway until this becomes more main stream.

What's the best one to buy seems like oculus rift is the most popular like what one should I preorder when they come out or wait for and are there any that will be great for watching sports like will make you feel your there live

If money is not an option, buy the Vive.

If you're looking to not break the bank, you can buy a PS4, cameras, controllers, and headset for less than what the computer needed for the Oculus or Vive would cost.

None of them will be great for watching sports like it's live, because they're not shot in VR to begin with. Aside from that, it depends on what you want. Will it just be for gaming? Are there exclusive games that will sway you? Do you just want the best visual quality? Do you want the best immersion? The question is far too broad.
Personally I'd go with the Vive for the most complete VR experience, because of the controllers, which will be amazing for a lot of the games built for VR from the ground up, like Job Simulator. The Rift is cheaper due to the lack of motion controllers, but it has ergonomics on its side, and I've heard it has a slightly better screen (not much between them though), so that might be a better option depending on your criteria.

My housemates bought The Vive and we have been playing the heck out of it; I mostly play the space pirate trainer. The Vive is absolutely amazing and a total game-changer. I bet this is the future of gaming.

Prophets, apostles, preachers, martyrs, pioneers of knowledge, inspired artists in every art, ordinary men and the Man-God, all pay tribute to loneliness, to the life of silence, to the night." - A.

She's an idiot for running in VR. :lol (probably staged anyway)
This is why the Rift focuses on sitting experiences, and why the Vive has a camera and allows you to map your usable area first.

PornHub has a VR channel now. I tried it through my phone with my Google Cardboard headset, and even that was pretty awesome. I can't imagine where it's going to be in 3 years time once a lot of people have legit headsets.

I'm adding this to the list of scenarios that will unfold in the coming months and years. Also related the recent discussion.  :lol

So i finally took the plunge and got myself an Oculus Rift, i've had it for a couple of months though. It's been quite the journey to get the best experience and to feel comfortable with it because honestly my first few times trying it, I almost wanted to refund the damn thing. Since I have glasses most of the time I was hoping that wasn't an issue, well you can have the Rift with glasses but it's so uncomfortable especially if your moving around, sitting down it can work. Anyway I have to have contact lenses for the best experience as simple as that as my glasses are probably to big to fit. I wonder why they don't the have a focus slider to compensate for nearsightedness, couldn't that be a thing?

I also realised two trackers wasn't enough to get full 360 tracking in some games, 1 more would have probably been enough but I bought two more so now I have one in every corner in my room which works great.

So many cables everywhere.... 4 USB cables for the trackers, the headset uses a usb + hdmi in one cable so you can't seperate. More sockets than I had in my PC with everything else plugged in so I had to buy a USB hub. Luckily the trackers I ordered contained longer cables because otherwise that would had been an issue since the original tracker cables are to short to place at correct distance since they are placed behind you away from the PC. The usb cable extending from the hub to the PC was of course as minimal as the could make it with a type B socket so I couldn't use the million USB type A cables I have laying around, I had to get a longer with a B socket.

When all that was sorted out I was finally able to get a decent experience. One thing that is painfully obvious once you put the headset on atleast it was for me, is the pixilated graphics which as I understand it is because of the resolution. 10801200 sounds great but when the lenses are so close to your eyes you will need a much great resolution to not see the pixels but this dosen't mean you can't get a cool experience which leads me to the things that are really awesome with VR.

Titanic VR was the first game I tried and it's pretty awesome, despite the grainy quality the immersion is real. To explore the ship in the dark using a rover in FPV is pretty cool, overall a cool experience that truly shows the potential in VR.

Another cool game that's also underwater is Subnautica now I love this game and have played it alot before I had VR, it's an intense experience exploring the depth of the ocean, with VR everything is turned up too 11 basically. VR aside I highly recommend that game because I feel it's a bit underated.

Project Cars 2 is also cool, I bought a steering wheel a year ago so combined with that it's a fun experience.

I have Lone Echo but haven't tried it yet, that seems cool.

I also haven't tried Fallout 4 VR or Skyrim VR, those are considered one of the only games that are trully complete games and dosen't feel like short tech demos because honestly, even though there are alot of cool gaming experiences to be had with VR most of the games still feel like VR tech demos even if they are complete games.

Besides games there's also small things like virtual desktop that's fun to use. Browsing youtube in VR and watching videos is cool, especially live concerts. Browsing DTF in VR is a divine experience.

Up until now VR has been a cool and neat experience but that's about to change...

Because I just had to try one of all these virtual girlfriend games that popping up from... wait for it...Japan  :omg: Who would have thought...

VR Kanojo, it's on steam and even though that game is pretty mellow after I tried it I pretty much instantly understood where the real potential are for VR...

Because whether you like or not VR has found it's perfect match made in heaven and that is PORN and they will have a bright future together!  :lol

Btw the new Oculus Quest looks to go in the right direction. I do wonder about the gpu power in the headset since it's all in one, no PC needed.

I find myself never playing my PSVR, but not because of lack of entertainment or anything like that. For the price, the tech is solid and performs surprisingly well.   

I feel too isolated when I play it. I like being able to look around the room or at my phone during loading screens, or be able to pause and glance away without having to undo headphones and a visor. I feel terrible for my dog as well. He starts scratching at like legs when he can't see my face for some reason.
