Welcome to Virtual Reality Ready
If you have ever had an interest in Virtual Reality headsets or you find yourself needing to keep up on the latest VR news, then you’ve come to the right place!
My main goal is to make sure that you get the answer that you need when it comes to Virtual Reality technology. This stuff can get pretty expensive, pretty quickly, depending on the kind of specs that you’re looking for, so, it’s important to keep up to date with the latest releases for a more rewarding experience.
My Personal Experience
A lot of these brand new released Virtual Reality headsets just aren’t worth the price that you pay for them.
Luckily, I happen to own my own Virtual reality headset: the Oculus Rift. It’s definitely not as impressive as the new released headsets, but I can share you my personal experience I had with the product and some of the opinions from my friends who also own different brands of virtual reality devices.
My Setup / Virtual Reality Gear
What computer do I use to play Virtual Reality?
- Windows Desktop PC / HP Z440
- Intel Xeon E5-1620 v3 @ 3.50GHz
- 64-Bit operating system
- GeForce GTX 1070
Why should I get the Oculus Rift?
When I bought mine, I had more fun gaming than I ever did since I was a little child. The Rift is much cheaper, more comfortable, less heavy, has way better hand controllers, requires a less expensive computer to run high demanding games, and it also works with both SteamVR and Oculus Home games. I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.
How much space do you need to use a VR headset?
This depends on which VR headset you have. The Oculus Go is for seated play only, so really, any space works. As for the Oculus Rift, you’ll need at least enough space to stand up and be able to extend your arms in any direction without hitting anything. This is due to the fact that most Rift games require that you stand and you have to reach out to grab things. In my experience, this is a huge issue for some games, so make sure you choose the right headset for the right play area size.

“I think it’s necessary for VR to start with an early adopter audience that’s highly engaged, and I think that means gamers. They’re the ones who have the high-end hardware and the expertise and the patience to sort through the uncertainty of it all.” —Tim Sweeney
“I think the most interesting things happening in VR are going to be somewhere in between what you call a traditional game and what you call a traditional movie.” — Tim Sweeney
“At its very core, virtual reality is about being freed from the limitations of actual reality. Carrying your virtual reality with you, and being able to jump into it whenever and wherever you want, qualitatively changes the experience for the better. Experiencing mobile VR is like when you first tried a decent desktop VR experience.” —John Carmack
