Oculus Rift S, anyone? Linus forgot to mention it entirely!!!!!!! No need for extra cameras at all, for $ 400, it’s a good VR headset...

@Gamer Prestige people like you are why the VR community fails. You are trying to divide two different headset owners that all have love for VR but why? shame on you.

By far the best review ive watched!
I think vr is boring if you don't have your own room where nobody disturbs you otherwise you don't even have time to play parents want to watch TV BTW to play you need lot of money for equipment and games

@Ka KAKAKAMILLLO Why should they reduce the game zone? It's the games that set this, it is very clearly stated with "seated play", "standing play" and "roomscale play". It's you just being a dumbass not paying attention to warnings and checking everything before buying.
@jarrod1937 I'm not happy because I got bored vr there is nothing to do for it would pay off to put on a head set. I can start the VRchat pc version other games on vr are short 1-3-5h I have too small a room to play when I want to and I rarely do it because you have to move the furniture Vive should reduce the game zone

Dude I love your videos and the sponsorships you take on but come on the valve bs is over priced and the rift s has it beat hands down. Must be nice to get review copy's of items. without having to spend all the money just to get the company more sales. But then again you get a kick back from that which im not mad about but I honestly do feel like this is soooooooooo bias its sickening just because they sponsored your video your gonna speak great about this product give me an effing break.
Mahoxy Vor 6 Stunden
This video wasn't sponsored by valve you spaz seems like you're the bias one here...
jarrod1937 Vor Tag
I am not sure if you can call someone out for being biased when product A is twice as expensive as product B, yet is superior in nearly all stats (pretty much all except price). A is the index, B is the Rift S. Refresh rate up to 144Hz versus 80Hz (and yes it matters, I get sick somewhat even at 90Hz). The resolution is a lot higher on the Index (25% higher), and even with the lowered SDE from their optics, it'll still suffer actual resolution issues in game. Audio is better on the Index (based on all reviews I've ever seen) than on the Rift S. While the camera based tracking looks to have been vastly improved, the lighthouse/base station tracking still proves superior, but admittedly the performance gap is getting pretty small now. With that said, there are merits to both purchases and you should purchase the one you feel is the best for your requirements and budget. To some, like me, the Index is a better purchase, purely from the raw specifications that are better on the Index over the Rift S. Even better is I had a OG Vive, so in theory I would only have had to spend an extra $350 for the Index since the base stations are compatible (I got the full set anyways, may resell my whole Vive setup).

Can anyone tell me if the game and / or the Valve Index will support a true left handed mode? Was this tested by any lefties inside or outside Valve? Before I drop $3k on an Index and a serious PC upgrade I need to get a concrete answer to this. The Index controllers look asymmetrical / side specific which is fine from an ergonomic stand point BUT can I flip controller sides in the support software or the game?
jarrod1937 Vor Tag
My dad is left handed and it's more of a game/software question. Depends if the particular game you want to play supports it or now. The controllers themselves are symmetrical, so it's more of a matter of if the game supports swapping which hand is the dominant one. Though, in some games my dad was able to adjust easily enough even without any left/right hand options. So, the best I can say is research what games you're interested in playing and make sure, though in general a lot of games have it as a standard option, it's just not guaranteed to exist.

Definitely not a first time ever unboxing. Maybe I missed the sarcasm. 🤷🏾‍♂️ 7:00 and 11:48 makes Linus’s comments at 10:20 laughable. I get it though. Get it in have fun with it and review later as if it’s the first time.
its meeeeeeeeeeeeeee
I have the first htc Vive and I can’t justify the upgrade until more good games come out for vr there is a lot of ok games and only a few actual good one. I’m hoping the valve index pushes the car market forward and gives us more great car games
