I tried the HTC Vive as well as the Oculus consumer headsets at a number of London Meetups. I got love for room scale… so… blew up my bank account and have the HTC Vive on pre-order. Should be receiving it next month (April 2016). Valve have a test application that can provide you with an idea of how your hardware will cope with the next generation of consumer VR. My PC’s test results suggest that I am going to need to update the old graphics card to do the experience some justice! To be honest, I knew this was coming. Seriously considering ebaying off my “old stuff”!
EDIT 21st March 2014. Found the accompanying YouTube video. Enjoy 🙂
Also, just uploaded some footage from the SXSW Game of Thrones experience. Grab a copy here Hipster Squid if you want to check it out (http://www.hipstersquid.com/). I found various issues with this demo, but the concept is interesting and (in particular) interesting that such a large franchise are looking at VR.
