This thing is such a fragile mess. Don't buy unless you liked installing printers on windows 95

It works it's got some issues out of the box using the vive mic which has been addressed will be answered in an update. Other than that it does what is says it does. $250 is better than $300. I can easily see retailers selling it for $200 despite the fact it's great product. Price point is is still high.

Yeah man, you've got the right of it. That's why everyone in developed nations have brain cancer from walking around with Bluetooth (2.4GHz) against their heads. I've gotta get these hematomas removed. It's my fault for using totally harmless technology. The horror!

Well, so far I've survived cellphones and wi-fi so I think my odds are pretty decent.

How close are we to a truly wireless VR solution right out of the box?

Man, I mean look at the monstrosity of that thing. I'm sure in 6-8yrs we'd all look back and laugh at all the crap it takes to get VR going today. As someone who's tried everything from cardboard, Samsung and Google (Daydream) VR, Oculus DK2 and launch, PSVR, I end up returning most of them due to various setup complexity and issues. I just dived back into PSVR with a PS4pro and spent 2 hrs trying to figure out why I can't get output to the TV (I already tried all suggested steps). It just feels like current consumer VR is one giant experiment. I hae some hopes with Mix Reality ones using only HDMI and USB 3.0 (I would hope soon it would just be USB 3.0 single cable).

YMMV, but existing customers of a particular cashback site that rhymes with Rebates may have a $50 bonus if you spend $250 or more at the Microsoft store. That makes this a great deal!!!

I just make sure you have a >$1 filler. I bought a $5 Vive cover.

I think they will keep wireless off their products to keep cost low. So that consumer can afford it and let company like TPCAST spend their resource to develop it as a luxury item.

Price is probably high because it's for early adopters, and the fact that the psvr is killing both the vive and rift in sales. Hopefully the both pick up soon. The vive is freakin amazing (owned one for a year now).
