Looks like I was right. The Index is just a normal VR headset after all.
At least according to GamerMuscle
- He confirms what @VoodooDE was saying about the controller layout being crap.
- He confirms the screen will not blow you away. (Someone get him a Pimax as he is primarily a sim racer and I imagine he’d probably prefer the pimax)
- He also confirms that the sweet spot and eyebox is better on the rift S
-And he says the FOV is just marketing bs. Its basically exactly the same as the OG Vive .
I knew that valve was trying to pull a fast one with the 110-130 claim. I mean its either 130 or its not…cut the marketing crap.
Pimax says they have 200 diagonal fov and 8k in the name and everyone flips their shiz. Valve just throws out a sketchy ball park but never actually commits to saying its 130 deg and nobody says a thing.
Watch his summary here . Gotta admit theres a high possibility if Pimax can just get those swords out it could end up being a real alternative to index controllers. Not to mention the headset offering something nobody else does. If pimax fails it would be their own fault because they truly have next gen potential.
Anyway hearing this guys impressions leaves me feeling alot better about how awesome the Pimax truly is.
