Hi guys, since we now know that Valve Index and Rift S will be released very soon, I was curious to see where everyone in the community currently stands on their next purchase.

I've tried to give as many options as possible below and included bundles with Quest + Rift S and Quest + Valve Index since I'm guessing many in the community will be buying more then one HMD just as I plan to myself.

    I am getting a Quest - but as for my main VR headset - I am unsure yet. The Quest for me is going to be used to play games with my nephews.

    Can't answer until I know more about the Index. The HTC Cosmos thing probably isn't even a factor for me. Only one I'm pretty much decided on is Quest.

    Valve Index
    I voted for Valve Index, based on what I know at this time that will be the one I get.
    Anything is subject to change, but certainly leaning very strong to it.

    No option for Rift-S and perhaps Index based on price (Rift-S + Index). So didn't vote

    I’m happy with my cv1 so I’ll probably wait for a proper generation 2.0 headset to be released.  No gen 1.5 for me, lol!

    I’m also happy with my Oculus Go.  Esp for media, web browsing, quick VR fixes, and it’s soooo handy/compact for travel.  I don’t think I will upgrade my Go until mobile VR has enough power to handle more sophisticated flight sims (eg. Xp11) and Google Earth VR.

    Quest

    I'm about 70% sure I'll be getting the Rift-S (or is that 30% unsure).
    But I'll vote when I get more details... rather than voting that I need more details.

    Sorry to be so complex.

    Edit: I voted for the Quest cos that's pretty much a definite... can't change votes later to Quest + Rift-S can we!

    It's either a Rift -S or Valve index for me, but I don't want to get something that's going to struggle with a Geforce 1080. Depends on the Valve index price and whether or not you will need a Geforce 2080Ti to get the most out of it. I'm not paying Nvida £1000 for a Graphics card, ever.

    You'll probably be fine either way

    Rift S
    Index is most likely out for me. Looking forward to inside-out on the S. Index is still going to use lighthouse, and with a Rift, I still have the Oculus and Steam stores I can use without hacks.

    Just come from a conference meeting with the Samsung Asia team and representative for States business in VR. Had a frank discussion about their current relationship with Oculus VR - and they revealed they have a Standalone VR system scheduled for a Q4 release that is their no phone GearVR using the Snapdragon 855. This is a major move to position themselves against the Quest - should have full specs in a day or so but this is major - especially for those that already were invested on the GearVR to move too.

    I'll buy an Oculus Quest. Also could be a HP Reverb or a Samsung Odyssey+.

    Should you be telling us this?

    Very interested in the HP Reverb actually which isn't listed in this poll but will likely be the first to release (end of April 2019). How odd. Anyhow for me likely Reverb and Quest to go alongside my Pimax 8K. All bases covered then. 


    System Specs: RTX 2080 ti , i9 9900K CPU, 16 GB DDR 4 RAM, Win 10 64 Bit OS.

    I wonder if there will be a hack like revive to run on oculus store
    Fiat Coupe, gone. 350Z gone. Dirty nappies, no sleep & practical transport incoming. Thank goodness for VR :)

    They won't be positioning that much against the Quest if both Odyssey headsets are anything to go by lol

    Well you never know, perhaps if we EVER get allowed to leave the EU Samsung might sell them here in the UK  :o :D

    A good point @bigmike20vt - you would have thought if the Samsung/Oculus relationship was still good they would have announced support. But by the sounds of it the GearVR community will be cut loose. Though this is still early and things change. As we kn ow there are a considerable number of GearVR apps that are not available on Go - so things could become fluid!

    I would not be so sure. But anything can change as you say.

    There were a number of questions from other attendees about the issue with International sales, and they seemed to confirm that Enterprise sales were not an issue moving forward. As you say, the consumer approach may not be their "positioning"! I think you may see announcement about other manufacturers taking this view.

    Quest for now. I'll buy whatever is best on the PC side next year when I build a new gaming PC.

    Quest
    My next headset will definitely be Quest—that’s a no-brainer, especially with a number of titles supporting crossbuy. As for my next PCVR headset, I’m not sure. I’m interested to learn more about Index, but I may well end up just waiting for CV2.

    Would a quest be able to play something like lone echo and is there a cross buy list for quest??
    Look, man. I only need to know one thing: where they are. 
  • nalex66nalex66 Posts: 4,585 Volunteer Moderator
    Quest
    Not Lone Echo, but it was hinted on Twitter that Echo Combat might be coming. Confirmed games include Robo Recall, SuperHot, The Climb, Beat Saber, Apex Construct... there are a bunch more that I can’t think of at the moment. I think there’s a list on Reddit in r/OculusQuest.

    Definitely getting Quest and probably going to get the Rift S, but will may wait for Index details.

    Even though I have been waiting for better spec'd headset I am not immediately drawn to the Index. The reason I am excited for the Index is that it probably means Valve is releasing content.

    The hmds concerned are not on the market. Obviously a reasoned choice needs more information ... and real availability in the market.

    Quest
    Quest is next for me. And I don't plan on buying anything else until there's either a Rift CV2 or a real, proper PCVR competitor offering. As it stands now, the Rift CV1 is still the best overall PCVR experience (imo) - taking in to account all aspects of room-scale VR (HMD comfort, hand-controllers, software, etc).

    Quest & Valve Index
    Hey guys, I made this thread with poll and then didn't check in for a few days so just seeing your reply's now, and yeah I made a few mistakes by not adding HP Reverb and Samsung Odesey but it won't let me edit the poll so oh well...besides we all know nobody will buy those HMD anyways don't we? LOL jk :wink:  

    I was just curious and thought it was a good idea to have a poll that showed what HMD's people were considering buying next. It looks already from the comments that a lot of people are interested in Quest and Valve Index and I find it interesting nobody has even mentioned the Vive pro or Pimax yet, which were both ridiculously priced.

    That's why in the main "Valve Index" thread on these forums I disagree with people saying Valve Index is going to cost £1000 or more because Valve has already seen that Pimax/Vive Pro don't sell at those ridiculous prices. That's why I
    feel that the Valve Index FULL bundle has to be in the region of £600-£700 and no more, otherwise people won't buy it.

    Edit: As for my vote, it's an easy choice for me, I choose Quest because Oculus make quality products and it's the obvious choice for playing Beat Saber on a wireless HMD.

    And then I choose the Valve Index as for me it's a full complete package that ticks all the boxes and doesn't appear to have any floors, plus I'm hoping for a Half Life VR game to be included with the purchase and I really want to play Stormland with 135° FOV and knuckle controllers. 

    And then I will feel like I have upgraded my Rift experience for the next year or so until Rift CV2 comes out which will definitely be my next purchase after these two. 

    I'm just happy I went to Casino last night and won £500 on roulette, I started with £50 and I literally just did 1st 12, 2nd 12 all night and I was winning 8/10 spins. Was such a good night so that £500 is going straight towards my next purchase. :smiley:
