If you are prone to anxiety popping its ugly head up out of the blue like myself then VR is amazing, There's a lot of great free experiences on the Oculus store, 1 gem is Euro Truck Simulator 2, Sounds boring but it's my zen place in VR

Printing my own little mounts for my headsets.

Have a Rift original Gen1
Vive Cosmos which I will hopefully be able to use knuckles with once I get the face plate
And a Valve index on the way.

Talk about a spaghetti junction of cables!

Friend of mine has the Cosmos with the new faceplate add-on and uses the knuckles with his no problem, I'm still waiting for my knuckles to arrive in 8+ weeks, At least I have the OG Vive wands until then.

In that case I wouldn't bother buying the Cosmos faceplate, It would be quite pointless when you get the Index in hand, You'd quite literally be throwing money at the Cosmos to have the same experience you had on the Index just with a slightly different HMD but with the Cosmos having lower FoV and lower refresh rate.

It depends on the quality of the index, since while its the best overall VR set around, cosmos is still superior in terms of detail.

Its nice to have options, but I won't decide until I play with the Index. Who knows, i might just end up selling the others, although the Rift first gen is still outstanding.

The res difference is absolutely miniscule, 4.6MP Index vs 4.8MP Cosmos, If you can tell the difference between them then you sir need to start working as a neuro surgeon ASAP
