Uh because there's virtually zero software for a $1000 of hardware which needs a $2000 PC to run well. Maybe one day VR will be an actual thing but that isn't anytime soon.
Cut those by half, easily. My excellent Samsung Odyssey can be had for under $300 on sale, and you can build a VR-ready PC for well under $1000.
What games do you have for it, or any other software you use? How much do you actually use it, and when you use it, how long do you use it for at a time?
is the game I have the most time in: over 100 hours all in VR. The sense of presence is amazing. You feel like a star pilot.DCS World
: Flight sims are great in VR. Seated VR is best, IMO.Super Hot VR
is also great, with the bullets, swords, and fists flying right at your face.Moss
is a puzzle game navigating a little mouse through 3D fantasy environments in VR. Great atmosphere and sense of being in that world.Space Pirate Trainer
is a cool VR shooter where you have to duck and dodge incoming projectiles while shooting drones.Subnautica
- Need I say more?Some great experiences that aren't really games:Apollo 11
: you experience the first moon landing. There are a few things to do like dock the command module. Approaching the moon and having it fill your entire view really communicated the size of it in a way no other format can.TheBlu
: As close to scuba diving as you'll get in VR. Things I didn't really like in VR
- thought it would be more fun and interesting than it was. As much as I loved E:D in VR, I didn't like PC in VR.Doom VR
: It just didn't work for me.
