what is it like?

Utterly convincing? A bit naff?


It's like being inside of the game, literally, Tron-style. If you have the graphics horsepower and a good game, it's very convincing.

What it's best for are flight/driving sims. You know the kind of folks who spend thousands on realistic flight/driving controllers and arrays of monitors for a wide field of view? VR is perfect for that and actually cheaper than alternatives, but that's a small niche market. Most games don't translate well to VR and there aren't a lot of games made for VR out there, there are a lot of ports but they're generally not very good.
