Oculus Rift S announced, launching Spring 2019 for $399

Forums - PC Discussion - Oculus Rift S announced, launching Spring 2019 for $399

Inside out tracking.  Does not require setting up several sensors like the original Rift.
 Passthrough.  Allow users to see the real world without taking off their headset.
Halo design.  Much more comfortable than the Rift design.
2560×1440. Original Rift was 2160×1200.
There's a few things that are worse than the Rift though:
80 Hz display instead of the 90Hz
LCD instead of OLED
No manual IPD

$400 for that.....uhhh I'll pass on that.

I'm mostly disappointed.  It doesn't even quite stack up to the Oculus Quest for the same price, yet largely has fewer features.  This definitely isn't a replacement for the Rift, but it would be a very cool device for my laptop.

Are there even any worthwhile VR apps that is worth spending this much money on lol?

Still going with the Quest because I don't have a PC capable of running all this stuff :P

Prediction, still not the device that's gonna make VR popular.

But I'm not sure if the masses actually want VR.

Going for LCD this time is a huge disappointment. Also 80Hz...I don't know how different the cost would be if they went for OLED with 90Hz.

Yes. There are plenty.

That's just a small list.

Multiplayer games are the most fun, though. Interacting in VR with others is just something you cannot do on flat games.

Everyone has their preferences and for me it's Pavlov VR. New update is coming soon.

To call this an upgrade and ask $400 is an insult to the concept of technological progress itself.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Glad the sensors are gone. But was really hoping for a better display.
