So if you are connected by USB, how do you walk around without yanking the cord out at some point?

Also, there is a 'break' on the chords. Like a xbox controller chord has a 'break' that will disconnect if there's too much a pull. The chords will 'break' before ripping the hdmi and USB ports out of your computer.

So it's about 800 for a VR capable computer, 499 for the rift, maybe 50 for cable management.

It's worth every penny.

Also, I don't play room scale games b/c my feet are terrible. There are room scale games I won't play b/c I physically can't.

Skyrim and Fallout I can play seated using the controllers just like usual. Also flight sims, driving simulators. I never walk w/ the headset. Someone w/ good feet might want to though.

Lately I've been using VR to play poker. It seems like I'm sitting at the table. It's cool.

Is that you in the PIC?

I already have monster desktop. So that shouldn't be a problem.
As far as the Rift, $500 for a toy would be a hard sell to Mrs. AngryOldMan during this crisis since we both feel that layoffs are possible at our company.
Of course I never mentioned to her that I dropped $7k on the full self driving option on my car in January before all this shit happened.
I would love to play a car racing game like this. Since I'm not likely to see an F1 race on TV this year unless things change radically in the next few months.

I dipped out on VR because I didn't like being so unaware of my real life surroundings while immersed in a false reality. I gave my PlayStation VR headset to my younger brother years ago. PSVR wasn't all that great but it was still a mind altering experience.
I'm sorely tempted now to try again with Half-Life Alyx. I've got a GTX 970 & RX 580 in my main PCs. They're good enough for now. I've been holding off buying a new mid/top of the line GPU because I barely play PC games that need more power. I have a hard time justifying paying more than $500 for a graphics card and so I'm waiting for noticeably better than 1080ti level performance to hit that $500 mark. The 2070 Super is close but no cigar (yet).
As for the VR headset. My fear would be that I spend $400 and then immediately regret not going all the way on a $1000+ headset and so waste that first 400 bucks. I've already owned the inferior experience with PSVR. Yeah, I could sell the cheaper headset to somebody but I usually end up giving my stuff away.
The smart thing for me to do is just stop watching videos like this so I won't be tempted in the first place.

heh. I like being unaware of my real life and prefer to immerse myself in a false reality :)

I'll be off soon. Will swing by grocery mart to pick up some pork chops, A-1 Sau, and a pre baked apple pie.

I'll be self isolating this weekend 8-)
