So I feel hard when rift came out...than rift s came out and jumped on it...so 2 weeks later my controller messes up( not even gonna go I to other problems as they been addressed with no help from oculus...so what shall I do....as of now I had to get the old rift back out cause I'm done with oculus...I'm go in vive cosmos now due to the fail product oculus rushed out ...thank you oculus for takin my money and giving us a cheaper....flimsy...piece of Shi*.....I'm actually shocked and kinda irritated with oculus...I mean I got 3 sensors and 4 old rift controllers....if they would allow us to use these with the rift s...omg that would be super...I mean usually when a new console or whatnot comes out...they atleast make it so u can still use old equipment on the newer systems...so wtf...it cant be that hard to update this...sadly i dont think I can wait for oculus to decide for us if we need it or could benefit from these...id still have mine if they did...but nope...oculus failed.

    HTC Cosmos doesn't use sensors either, but I'm sure you know that already.

    Hate to tell you but HTC Vive just plain sucks compared to Oculus.  If you think that Oculus support is bad......wait until you have to deal with HTC.

    Ive heard bout the vive...hopefully cosmos will be better...so far by what I've seen it looks like they took more time making it

    The Cosmos also can't use previous equipment. You can't use the Vive lighthouses, it's an inside out camera system. You also can't use the Vive wands or the new knuckles controllers, the Cosmos uses specific Rift-S style controllers (the entire tracking system is incompatible between the Cosmos and all other HTC/Valve headsets).

    Common sense tells you why they can't use the old controllers.  The headset can't see them because the rings are blocked by your hands.  You can't use the sensors because the headset does the sensing and a few minutes of research tells you that. I do feel that the controller ring is less sturdy, but it could just be a perception thing for me.

    You forgot to mention that like the Rift-S, because it is inside-out tracking, there is no need for external tracking devices....Tell the whole truth instead of bsing....FYI, inside out tracking--at least with the Rift-S is awesome and a major improvement over the external tracking.  I can't speak to the Vive iteration as I have never used it.

    lol - I think you missed the point entirely. There was nobody hiding the whole truth or bs'ing. You need to read what the OP said to understand things. Context is important.

    The OP said:
    "I'm go in vive cosmos now
    I got 3 sensors and 4 old rift controllers....

    if they would allow us to use these with the rift s...

    omg that would be super

    at least make it so u can still use old equipment on the newer systems"


    So you see, going Vive Cosmos won't allow him to use the older Vive equipment either (e.g. lighthouses). Which is what kojack's point addresses. You might want to read everything first, before running around accusing people of hiding the truth and bs'ing.

    If the controllers fail - .... this doesn't make sense really xD Why not call out on warranty. Even then - the controllers can't be backwards like because the tracking is different - the method is the same - but the way it goes about positioning the cameras is. So even if they did - it wouldn't make sense and be FAR worst than before. Most companies are going this route at some point in the future for lots of reasons. Your only hope would be the Vavle Index as far as a stop gab solution for the time being.

    That might be true, but I would not know since I have never had to use support for my Vive ever. My Oculus products on the other hand, has had to do the support dance on multiple occasions without exception.

    I have used both systems and I can echo your experience with the Vive.  I never had to contact support at all, it just worked.

    However I have had a plethora of issues with both the original Rift and the Rift-S and the support experience I faced was horrendous.  Not only that, but to compound the terrible support, you go online to look for assistance and have nothing but shills and aggressive posters slamming you because you are having issues.  You are basically left on your own to solve the issues yourself.  Horrendous support and an extremely hostile community.

    That being said, the Rift-S, once you get rid of the bugs, is an absolutely incredible experience that blows away the Vive easily.  The inside out tracking is superb.  The only thing I want now is a wireless adapter to ditch the single cable going to my computer altogether.
