While it's brilliant the resolution has increased which VR sorely needs, I reckon the price is going to be in the region of £999 going by HTC's previous price of the Vive.

Yeah... we need a price decrease for the Vive. We need a new version of the OG Vive with Steam Tracking 2.0 (cheaper) and a price tag that is more competitive with the Rift.

I can see Oculus coming out with the CV2 that has the same res/fov/refresh rate/OLED etc.... as this new Vive but quite a chunk cheaper, Having tried both Vive and Rift, I can't understand why anyone would pay sooo much more for the Vive when it's the exact same res/fov/refresh/OLED as the Rift minus the aesthetic differences.

Wow that thing STILL looks ugly as heck. Much prefer the streamlined and clean look of the Oculus Rift IMHO.

Ah well.....its not all about looks I guess. :\

I bet you hands down, the increase in resolution will only make it slightly better than the Rift.

The SDE on the ViVe is so terrible, that it should fix that before anything. We have a vive and rift in work now. Novelty stress relief from busy days to unwind. Vive in PCars is horrendous. Dont think resolution increase will make it better :S

The thing I don't like about the Vive even though it's the same res, Fov and refresh rate as the Rift, Is the screen looks lower quality to my eyes i.e more of a screen door effect, Hence why I went with the rift.

I've heard rumblings (from the guy at Vive on the cast) that this is for the pro industry only ATM.

Also this - the resolution will butt secks any GPU on the market.
