I'm not sure what tilt brush is either. I will have to Google it. But from what you said I'm thinking it resembles Lego : it's software which lets you build interesting things from scratch with modular parts which snap together?

The pc spec is very average possibly worse than average after spending that much on the headset you would cheap out on the pc. Doesn't make any sense

That said, neither is brilliant for detailed graphics, so it tends to work better with games that stick with less realistic styles.



​Thanks but that was my point I was hoping for far better graphics for the significantly higher cost. Agree these headsets are so immersion you overlook it but the cost is oO

Do you only keep the games while they are in your monthly subscription package. So having them in a package one month and then not the next will mean you lose access to them?



As far as I am aware it is a similar program to EA Access, you get access to a certain amount of games. Though, I do believe it says somewhere on HTCs site that you can either keep the 5 games thrrough the months but you can always switch.

So yeah, I believe you are correct on that.

Lots of great suggestions there, I wasn't fussed about VR then had a shot of one and bought a Vive shortly after. I haven't regretted it for a moment and I love that it just keeps getting better, Raw Data is a lot of fun as a first person VR shooter and the recently released Google Earth VR client is amazing.

Just re-bought one from scan seeing as i've always used them and had no trouble with them. Also good reports on trustpilot. I also bought an 1070 for 430 euros (around £360-70) on this deal; hotukdeals.com/dea…892 the normal version has gone back up to 480 euros but the OD is still 430.

At 4:58 in that video you can see the fresnel issue I'm on about.

This is a useful video; youtube.com/wat…ZjE you can see the fresnel lenses circles quite often on the Vive although the Rift’s lenses uses much finer fresnel lenses so you don't notice them although god rays and text are blurred. I prefer the vive although I don't think I'd be moving around much so the Rift makes more sense to buy although the Vive supports man Rifts games so yeah.. .lol.

I ordered from Currys last night but cancelled due to trustpilots reviews on currys (some folks in another deal on here made me aware they have poor service). And now i'm not sure if I have enough space (You need 1.5m by 2m where as I have 1.5m by 1.5m) and i've read up on the screen door effect which sounds as if it blurs the resolution to where you might as well just have 720p? Not sure whether to wait for the next gen now? Thanks.
