Around $600+ for oculus Quest. Its a standalone VR headset so dont need PC. Only need handphone to activate.

Games have to buy from oculus store.

Hard to buy though coz always out of stock.

If you have gaming PC, can consider Oculus rift, samsung Odyssey+, HTC vive etc.

If you have PS4, can consider PSVR.

Ok got it, Standalone VR quality is not same as PC + headset VR.

Can share abit more: quality in what sense; Graphics realistism? Among of well design VR games? what roughly what percentage difference?

for PC + headset VR, what would be the hardware setup & price for such PC?

Graphic on PC will be much better obviously but depend on the game and your PC.

I think you can get a decent VR PC for around 1k.


From Aftershock.

VR headset and games not included.

Oculus Rift S use inside out tracking so dont need external sensors like the old rift, htc vive or valve index.

Actually the most important thing for VR is space. You need sufficient space to play without any obstacle. At least 2m by 2m.

Check out VR games such as half life Alyx, lone echo, Asgard Wrath, No Man Sky if you want to see graphic intensive VR games.

There are also skyrim VR and Fallout 4 VR.

Rookie on this subject, VR Gaming link-up with PC is 'Enthusiast-level' stuff, anyone has come across any good write-up pointers & details to share?

Just google. There is an active reddit community as well such as VRgaming, oculus and oculusquest.

I haven't got the headset yet (and FS2020 doesn't support VR yet, it says Reverb G2 is the first headset to be supported soon). IIUC it basically works as a head tracker, you use whatever the controllers you used as usual (joystick or hotas etc). So instead of using the buttons on the controller to move your view inside the cockpit, you can just turn your head.

oic thanks! don't think my current system can handle this. so may will wait for further reviews before deciding if to build a new rig.
