These two titans are about the same price, The occulus Dev kit is 300$, As is the shield. (190)

(In this scenario, the occulus is in a Finished state, bugs are mostly flattened, dev support is middling, but most games get modded in)

I think the Shield is going to be hammered, but I'd probably use it more, I want the power of my PC, but in my Living Room, but that's a small, small niche.

One's a useful device bringing portability to something weighing a dog.

One's a 'gimmick' that can be used for half an hour before feeling sick.

EDIT: Gimmick is in quote marks, don't take it seriously.

I love the Oculus Rift, but seeing as I already have a Sony HMZ-T1 it isn't as desirable a proposition as it could be. The Rift has some nice features, especially for use with gaming, but I can't justify owning another head mounted display. The display/optics are (I believe) nicer on the Sony, but it doesn't wrap around you as fully as the Rift.

Plus, the HMZ-T1 was stupidly expensive. Glad I have it, but man....something similar for $500 less is a good deal.

Two completely different products, not to mention one is in development stages, and the other is available at retail.

I would not recommend this thread to friends and family.

This, except bedroom (and occasionally bathroom) instead of living room

Rift, easily. I quit portable gaming long ago. Sometime during college I realized I just can't deal with the tiny screens anymore. I'll emulate if I'm interested in the actual games but I just plain can't use the native hardware.
