I have a 3D vision 2 kit I feel progression was abandoned for. When I went to bestbuy the oculus had really bad blurring when moving my head. My friend insist it was the stores setup & mine would be fine. I did find the oculus to really pop & no eye strain like in 3D vision. Also for the demo they had I didn't notice any drastic quality drop in resolution not negated by the 3D experience. That being said I'm here looking to replace my 3D vision with vr-headset for all blizzard games even WoW,battlefield 4&1, battlefront, plants vs zombies 2, dragon ages, the witcher 3, batmans, tomb raiders, just cause 3, among other square inc games, and horror puzzle games like outlast. I prefer keyboard for multiplayer games. I use an Xbox controller for steam & single player games. I'm not looking to move just a solid 3D experience across the games listed above. So vive, oculus, or wait for Microsoft headset?

My build bellow

3770-non k 4.1ghz on asrock z77
16gb 1600mhz ddr3 cas 8
Msi gaming X gtx 1070
With an Asus 144hz 1080p monitor

Might replace CPU, mobo, and ram soon. I think it might be bottlenecking my frames on World of Warcraft, Blade & Soul, and 64 slot Battlefield 4 servers. Because in smaller groups on all those games I get 150+ ez. But it drops to 50fps avg around a certain threshold of players or certain areas on WoW/BnS with high levels of ground detail such as excessive grass.

Kk why the vive over oculus if you don't mind me asking? I won't be forced to use its controls if I want a sitting experience correct?

The Vive is much better than the rift, i've tried both trust me. ;)
Do you not have the space for a VR setup?
It really only needs to be about a 3x3m space which can be achieved by even just moving your bed to the corner of your room provided it is decent sized.

But why use the TV as a third monitor?
1. Your TV won't have a good response time for gaming OR browsing.
2. The size is stupendously large.
3. The controller will also add a bit of input lag.
You should still be able to find a decent sized space for VR, not to worry.

I have 2 monitors on my desk I use. When I play steam games like Tomb Raider or Just Cause 3 both Square inc title, I sit on the couch switch tv to primary monitor as I play. My girlfriend loves to watch me play. So for story games we sit on the couch & play.

Ok.. HOLD UP!

We are talking apples and oranges here.
You would not get a VR system to play the listed games. I mean.. you could, but you are going to be playing them in a virtual space on a virtual monitor. So, unless your place is either really small or really dirty, I don't get why you would get a VR system for the above experiences.



>> I'm not looking to move just a solid 3D experience across the games listed above.

Here is the answer..

DO NOT GET A VR SYSTEM!
What you are looking to do is add depth to 3d games. A VR headset will not perform that function.
It is technically possible, but there isn't any software out there really designed for it.

You can get software like: https://www.vorpx.com/
That will convert some games into VR, but I cannot state it's effectiveness, or what it does for motion sickness.

So.. in conclusion...
- What you are trying to do isn't really supported by VR systems out of the box.
- You may be able to use some 3rd party software to get the effect you want, but do your research.
- Make sure you understand what the VR systems do, and what you are buying.


Hope that helps. :)
