Is there any speculation yet as to which of the VR sets are going to be the best? I always thought Oculus but in the last year competitors seem to be appearing from all over the shop with this one in particular looking interesting

Also I can't seem to figure out but will all VR compatible games work with whichever headset you buy?

Both have the same resolution and max refresh rate, so it is really hard to tell right now.

Honestly I believe the Vive will be more successful due to the partnership with Steam. Short of some major hardware issues arising, having the partnership will just increase presence within the market.

If Valve release Half life 3 as a VR exclusive......

Remember the previous 2 Half life games were good looking games for it's time, perhaps Valve will use it to push VR.
