How are you liking it? Is it a big difference?

I sold my Vive off a while back, I just wasn't using it.

I just got it earlier today, it's currently in the trunk of my car. Tonight I'll fire it up and share some impressions.

Taking the day off tomorrow.

Yeah don't know how I would get that to play on my VR headset.

You should try a new game.

@Keen The Vive pro IS a nice upgrade. That extra resolution/ppi is very noticeable. I think the sound isn't as nice as the deluxe audio headstrap of the first, I expect to mod it to make it better. The single tether cord is also much easier to deal with.

So with the regular Vive now down to $500, and the full pro kit at $1,100, is the upgrade worth $600? For most probably not. But if you want the BEST VR currently available it's easily the best on the market. Moves tech closer to hopefully one day having something that looks realistic.
