If you don't like wires, you might want to wait for the Quest coming out in Q1 of 2019. Oculus Quest is like the Rift in that it has outside in motion tracking so it supports a more immersive experience unlike the Go which only supports head motion tracking. Quest is standalone hardware and doesn't need to be connected to a PC with a high end video card to work. Rift is capable of better graphics because it's a PC video card driving the graphics, but you're tethered to a wire.

Quest is going to have it's own lineup of games and won't play rift games so it will not have as many games initially.

I'm so close on this.

It seems like any jumps in technology (other than the Vive pro) are geared towards mobility and not image quality.

I don't mind wires and have a system that can push this. Am I in danger of regretting this purchase if the only future upgrade I really care about are for resolution and image quality? Also, I wouldn't be one to spend $750+ on a new, latest-and-greatest headset, but if there's a new headset around $400 coming down the pike in 2019, I might feel dumb for buying this now...

You might want to research the Odyssey+. Image quality is greatly improved over the Rift. The tracking "problems" don't bother 98% of users.

But also, I love my Rift. I prefer it to my Vive, actually.

No. The only thing announced is the the Quest which will roundup "Gen 1" VR for Oculus. Gen 2 is in development obviously but hasn't been announced. Looking at no earlier than 2020 I'd say.

I have a Lenovo Explorer. Tracking wise its fine as long as you're hands are parallel or forward of your head. Throwing anything or sometimes laying down they can't track. So attempting to throw a grenade or any object in most games causes it to just drop.

The best of both worlds would seem to be buy an Odyssey+ and wait for the Valve Knuckles to come out (whenever that may be) and use them together. You can use vive tracking/controllers with WMR headsets, but the vive controllers are meh.

Depending on your graphics card I've heard supersampling can improve readability a bit on the vive/rift so I'm very much debating on buying a Rift and doing a comparison. Can anyone comment on a supersampled rift vs odyssey (or odyssey+) image quality?

I suppose direct from Oculus can be a better deal if you have a friend with referral or if you are buying a second one, etc.

As I understand it the friend gets 10% off, which brings it down to $360, plus the referrer gets a $30 Oculus store credit, so you could consider that a total of $70 off or $329.

I was in the same boat. I still don't know if I made the right choice getting the oculus over a vive pro, but finally making a decision was worth it and I have been having lots of fun with it

You could have bought it for 400 a year ago and have a years worth of play time and not worry about 400 more down the road.

Take this as a lesson in waiting for which we dont have unlimited time in this life.

Wow prices really haven't come down at all.
I think I bought mine like.. what? 2 years ago now?
Hardly used it and sold it a few months back for basically the same price I bought it for.

I'm still waiting for a reason to buy it again, or the next gen. Wireless Vive looked interesting but the article I read says it doesn't mesh with AMD CPUs... And I got one of thems! Haha
