      Extremely immersiversatile,far better than I expected if you are interested in the next generation of gaming this is it.
      Cables and headset weight take some getting used to. Needs some killer triple a titles to really get it noticed.

      Absolutely amazing product. Best VR on the market! Truly immersive and the tracking is unreal.
      A little on the expensive side, then again the tech is brand new and very much still in the early adoption stage!

      The next iteration will hopefully have higher resolution, though I cringe at the power of the PC it'll require!
