Not a bad device at all.

But if you already have a PC with a Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 (or AMD Radeon R9 290) or better, go with something better and cheaper than the GO.

I'd recommend a used Vive for around the same $200+ on ebay. (originally $800) That's what I got, and I love it.

You'll save TONS of money on your first week since you can buy Steam games from all the sites listed at IsThereAnyDeal for a FRACTION of the cost than you do from the Oculus store. And there are a crazy amount of free Steam games too.

Not to mention, the stronger PC driving it means no short battery life, and better graphics.

Not to mention MUCH better head and control tracking. And 2 controllers so you can play all the games.

Do you have a recommendation or a link for a Vive from ebay? I'm having trouble figuring out what is trash and what is good as far as models go.

Not a bad suggestion above, but if you already bought one you can use it with this open source project to stream from your PC. You must have a nice pc still but seems to be an ok alternative.

I would have loved one of these as a kid for not having to tie up the main pc to play games on. When I was 11 the Virtual Boy came out and I was so excited to play it at blockbuster video. After trying it out I went until the Oculus before I even thought about VR again.

Bestbuy does demos. Call them for details. I did it, and thought it was pretty good.

But then I realized a used Vive on ebay is HALF THE COST, and BETTER QUALITY. As well, the games are a fraction of the cost if you get Steam keys from places on IsThereAnyDelas. (vs forced to use the Oculus store)

My only concern is longevity and support. Do they plan on pumping out more titles? Or drop it like they dropped steam machines and steamOS?

No way SteamVR will ever disappear. don't think valve makes the steam controller anymore, yet they still have 100% support for it. As well, the very top of steam sales over the last month or two has been steams valve index. So there's no way they're stopping now.

There are thousands upon thousands of games on steam for VR, so nothing to worry about there.


Plus, like 40% of the VR users have the Vive. Many (like me) will sell their Vive for cheap on Ebay and upgrade to the Index. This means many new-to-VR people can grab a Vive for $200 or so, and increase the SteamVR user base even more!
