Start reading some of the existing threads on the same topic. The first one is a thread from Oct so it’s up-to-date. The other two are 1+ year old so maybe not fully up-to-date (might have been new product releases after that, e.g. HTC Vive Pro 2).
For brand new guys into VR and interactive, I would highly recommend the Handy + Quest 2 being all you need at a minimum for best bang for your buck and for a very high quality immersive experience setup
This is perfect especially if you dont have a PC or any higher end graphics card
Heres the links to those handsfree items for really quick and easy handsfree setup:
@Realcumber Thanks for the detailed breakdown and your scripting talents!
I have a Quest 2/Handy/SLR sub. Very easy and rocks my world lol. I’m also paying attention to others that are commenting about higher end setups. Good to know for down the road. Is the quality on a PC setup that much better than a Quest 2?
So I would say the 2 main advantages to higher end setups would require different headsets and higher end graphics cards and different toys (which still come with some tradeoffs so all depends on preferences):
FOV (really nice for natural peripheral vision to feel like you are there more)
Smoother frame rate (120hz - less stutter and more smoother lifelike motion especially during fast movement)
1 to 1 true motion for Deeper Stroking + Subtle/complex movement playback (OSR2) (Although Handy toy does quite well)
Its important to keep in mind though that the Quest 2 has pretty important wireless freedom where higher end PC headsets and OSR2 will need to be wired and a little bit more of a hassle free to setup
