The Oculus Rift is not better than that headset. But truthfully, it’s not really measurably worse, and only costs a few hundred dollars. In that sense, it’s a total game changer, because whether Oculus or a competitor drives VR forward, they’re doing it at consumer prices now.
In that way, it feels a lot like how it felt to put a Voodoo card in your machine in the late 90’s. You immediately understood it was only a simple start to GPU tech–something good enough and cheap enough–but that a lot was going to happen really fast now.
