When I woke up this morning I found out that my Vive will be shipping soon! I don’t think that I’ve been so happy to see a large charge before…
Too bad it appears that my Oculus won’t be here until May, something must have gone very wrong on their end to be so slow on sending out preorders. My Vive was preordered sometime between 15 and 20 minutes after the preorders opened, while my preorder for the Rift went through at 7 minutes. I understand that manufacturing companies will be better at their logistics, but come on… Oculus has Facebook backing them, You’d think that they’d be able to sort things out at least a bit better.
I guess that for now I’ll be comparing the Vive to the Oculus DK2 for the time being. On another note, the DK1 doesn’t work in Oculus Home, effectively making the device a brick for anyone who upgraded. It isn’t an awesomely high-end device, but it should still be able to work. I wonder how long it’ll be until someone makes a wrapper that makes the DK1 work again.
On yet another VR Related note, people have managed to get the Vive to work with some Oculus Exclusive games. You can take a look if you want, I find it very interesting. I wonder how well this will work in the future. Hopefully Oculus will add support for other headsets, I’m sure that more people would spend money on their store if they could play on more than one type of device.
