It is but depending on your requirements its got some good points!
A couple of weeks ago I played Project Cars 2 (not properly tried it beyond a 5min test) on the Odyssey+, I’ve mentioned this elsewhere that intended to use the pimax but it was messing about, did the horizontal split thing, then wouldn’t work. So due to timing on playing with friends resorted to trying on Ody+ so I could actually just get on with playing.
Fantastic! So vibrant and clear! As I say its the first time I’ve properly played PC2 on one of my newer HMD’s and so I felt FOV isn’t everything when the image looks so good!
Last week I played again for a couple of hours, this time on the pimax… it behaved this time! I’ve not really tried the pimax much recently so I just shoved brightness in the new .95 version of pitool to high and loaded pc2… it was like OMG, this looks f’ing fantastic, very clear and the FOV was the icing on the cake. Framerate was crap but I’d not really optimised any settings as I was too busy just racing and it was still playable, a good 2h later I wasn’t feeling any problems.
So Ody+ yes its narrow but enjoyable. Pimax, I was at the holy shit look at the FOV and clarity moment!
Both are great, but the pimax wins this round for the FOV and slight edge in clarity! still looking forward to pimax proper headstrap!
