HTC Vive Cosmos VR Kit, seems like some decent price drop..
Lol I can get two oculus quest cheaper than that
Or a quest and a Vive DAS
Some people are happy to pay extra to keep Zuckerberg out of their homes.
Quests are sold at a loss though.
Just realised that I was confusing the Cosmos with the Index. Point still stands that the Quest is subsidised by Facebook, but the value proposition of the Quest 2 is admittedly much better than the Cosmos based on real-world performance (i.e.tracking issues, etc).
Reviews suggest for less than half the price, the Quest 2 takes a giant dump on the vive cosmos.
I have to hand it to Facebook/Oculus, I picked up a Quest 2 on release and have been nothing but thoroughly impressed.
Native Quest is awesome, and once I upgraded my router to a high end Asus one, virtual desktop has been a dream.
There was some great article about some chap that got his Facebook account randomly banned…and as a consequence lost his oculus account/games lol. Ouch.
Yep - thats literally the only downside of Quest imo… and is literally the only reason I still have a facebook account.
Me too. I never had Facebook, and created an account that is exclusively used for Oculus.
I still don't have the Facebook app on my phone, and ensured that the Oculus app has as few permissions as possible. I would like to remove it entirely, but it's actually really useful to share views of what the user is playing.
still waiting on my quest 2 to replace my psvr; unfortunately been hampered by fedex and covid so it's been delayed a week or so :(
Visible light tracking implementation was simply not a good idea for VR headset that costs this much
I’ve had a cosmos and I’ve returned it. I thought I could get the cosmos to replace my original HTC.
Controller tracking is an issue. Loses tracking when your hands are out of sight from the HMD cameras
General tracking issues when moving in a space
Controllers are bulky, bangs on the HMD a few times when you’re trying to use FP aiming.
Painted surface of the HMD is easily scratched
Gets really warm after 1 hours of playing
HMD is a great upgrade from the original Vive but besides that it’s not
Had one for about a year… Invest in something else its not worth half that price…
There's about a half dozen better ways to spend $888 on VR gear.
I can confirm that HP G2 Reverb is much better than the Cosmos. Better tracking and much newer at the same price.
