    Oculus Rift S, anyone? Linus forgot to mention it entirely!!!!!!! No need for extra cameras at all, for $ 400, it’s a good VR headset...

    Great review Linus! I was already a big fan of yours, but I'm a fan for life after seeing how wonderfully you handled your little rascal Shadow. I was actually debating between Rift S and Valve Index recently, but I was afraid I wouldn't use the index enough because of setup. This is why I barely played my original Rift, I have no where to leave it set up permanently. So I got the Rift S...2 wires, no external sensors... bingo! Only problem is without the touchpad on the controllers, functionality is sometimes limited in games, which can be very annoying. Especially in something like Hotdogs, Horseshoes and Hand Grenades. Like cocking the hammer and rotating the cylinder on revolvers for instance. Still though, the simplistic setup out weighs the disadvantages, for my needs. Maybe I'll add an index to the collection as well down the road and round out my vr experience because.... damn that's nice!
    Thanks for sharing Linus!

    Vive pro was compelling... increased res, pass through cameras, rigid head strap, built in audio. The fact he prefers OG vive head strap is baffling. Not sure this is the place to get VR advice.

    so he said VR is dead and now in this video, he says maybe its not, does the idiot not realise that people detracting from VR can have a negative affect on how VR is perceived.

    Isnt it bad to let a child who is less than 13 years old to play VR games, cause some studies say their brains are still developing RL 3d Shapes, and they say VR games can Damage that process?

    Why every VR game seems experimental or unprofessional? Are there any big traditional game company involved in VR right now?

    To bad there’s no games for it, if you want real vr system rift s is where it’s at. The first party games are amazing. And your video is stupid!
