Edit: PSVR is surprisingly good if you can ignore the resolution. The bank heist demo is excellent!

Oh snap!

Pre ordered it too.

So the Vive Cosmos pre-order didn't go as planned, My bank knocked it back as it thought it was fraudulent activity so by the time I got to the pre-order page it wasn't working properly so I then just compared the specs of the other existing HMD's on the market, It's really not that far ahead of the Rift S so I just said bugger it and got the Rift S, Saved £300 quid by doing so not bad.

Visually it's a maHOOsive visual upgrade over the Rift CV1, Seriously night and day, I was very happily surprised, Text is extremely legible now, Jaggies are massively reduced, Everything is soooo much clearer, God rays are basically gone and I haven't seen the screen door effect whatsoever.

Sound wise it's actually not bad as they moved the speakers into the headband, With some tweaking they aren't far off the original CV1 dedicated headphones but I use my DT770's anyway so it's a moot point.

Tracking is as excellent as the original CV1 which had wall mounted sensors, The Rift S has 5 sensors in total and the 2 x sensors at the front also act as passthrough cameras which is a bit of an excellent touch IMO.

Setup took maybe 3 minutes total, Plug in DP, 1 x USB 3.0, Launch the Oculus program, Which is a 7GB download, And it walks you through it, Maybe at the max 2-3 mins total.

Comfort is miles better, I forgot I even had it on after 6 hours of mining in Elite Dangerous

Budget arcade fight stick refurbished so cheap and cheerful

May at a later date upgrade the buttons and joystick with sanwa parts if I feel the need but for now pretty happy once it's here I can get back into my wealth of fighting games past and present

It supports PS3 PS4 X360 Xbox1 PC so will be nice for all my arcade fighters.

Not to take away your thunder here but check this out

Ignore alot of it, but it reports many of bugs, some of which are still not fixed. Maybe you are aware already, but I know from a colleague that the white screen flash is still present even after latest patch.

Available for $399, the Oculus Rift S has been the subject of multiple critics, some completely without sense and only showing that buyers did not check the specifications before buying it. But the headset has a series of bugs that Oculus says it is correcting, from tracking problems to crackling sound on the speakers, to continuous requests for setup, black screens and white flashes. While some of the bugs seem to have been ironed, there continue to be some, like the white flashes that appear on screen momentarily; Oculus states it is working on a fix.

Can happily report I've had zero bugs so far

How is it in Elite, I know the one thing that stopped me putting my Rift back on was the awful lights coming from text and although you could read it, it was annoying when you had this blue light shining the from the top and bottom of the text.

That is the one of the things that have stopped me getting back in to Elite because once you have played it in VR, it's very difficult to go back to a standard monitor.

Brilliant in Elite but after playing other games more I'm taking it back, The lowered refresh rate for me has had a negative effect of giving me motion sickness, Didn't have that at all with the CV1 due to its higher 90Hz refresh rate.

No good for me then, I don't get motion sickness with the CV1 but the 90hz just didn't feel enough, I was hoping that although they dropped it for the Rift S, that it would not be as noticeable.

Shame really as, as much as I like the look of the Cosmos or what ever it's called I might just give it a few years to let it mature more and see what comes then.
