Facebook's Oculus Rift Can't Compete With PlayStation VR or HTC Vive, But Its Marketing Might

In the video above, I outline the biggest competitors for virtual reality headset Oculus Rift, starting with the HTC  Vive. The HTC Vive is the most impactful tech demo I’ve experienced and that is saying something. There is no way for me to articulate how completely enveloped you are into these virtual worlds when you are using the HTC Vive. The ability to walk around with your own two legs in a virtual space takes you out of this world and into another that you couldn’t have never dreamed of. The HTC Vive makes it real, not a novelty, not just a game or a demo. You, as a  person, are in this completely new universe.

The Oculus Rift simply hasn’t been able to capture the emotion or immersion like the HTC Vive does. The HTC Vive has wonderfully accurate control sticks as well and Oculus Rift is working on their own but it is hard to imagine they will be as accurate or articulate as what I used in HTC Vive’s demos.

PlayStation VR already has its tried and true motion controller; the PlayStation Move, so it’s way ahead of the game when it come to accurate controls. PlayStation 4 also has something HTC Vive and Oculus Rift do not… the absolute largest user base. Last reported, over 36 million PlayStation 4s have been sold, dwarfing the number of virtual reality ready PCs by nearly three times.

Though the technical specs of the HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift may be higher than PlayStation VR, that’s never been the point. Consoles are vastly cheaper and more user friendly with plenty of exclusive titles as well. This same formula for success will give PlayStation VR a distinct advantage.
