Nice job HTC for a response to the price difference after Oculus's summer sale. Things are definitely heating up. Now Sony, your turn to drop the price of PSVR just a little so that gamers can join in and get some SUPER HOT VR action all around.

Oculus is still the better deal, it includes two sensors and the best controllers of the 3 VR sets for $399. Nice to see a pretty significant price drop though. Vive has the best tracking and room scale but that also can be achieved on Oculus which can support up to 4 sensors. How many sensors does PSVR have?

Oculus ain't a better deal, weaker tech, not future-proof and there ain't really any games that are future-proofing it in the software department. Vive has already a decent lineup and Valves' working on VR Gloves to boot - and we KNOW Valve can make a Valve game and has a Full-Fledged AAA game in the works for VR, just imagining Half-Life VR would make it sell quite a good amount.

Oculus? the fuck does it got?

No, Vive just looks less ridiculously expensive now.

Rift is the cheapest now

Well you need to add a price of decent PC to run VR properly
