        Even with the $100 off of the Vive, the Rift is still cheaper and comes with better controllers.

            True. Once you factor in a third sensor, the price difference is negligible.

            Ultimately, it's going to come down to the library. Valve needs to step their game up. It really feels like they're taking a page from Microsoft's book on this one.

              They're both great systems. You can really easily waffle back and forth between which one to get and agonize over it. There are plusses and minuses for each. The ergonomics of Rift and Touch kinda beat out the superior Lighthouse tech for me, and the recent $200 off was kind of a bonus.

        $100 wouldn't really make a difference in my decision. I tried both and preferred the touch controllers. When I've had my fun I'll resell it.

      Neato. Anyone here already on viveport and can report good or bad with it? I haven't been VR'ing lately, mostly due to the Zeldas running about.
