EGX 2015: HTC Vive Impressions - Hoping It's Bad is a Bad Move

How is the HTC Vive / SteamVR? Well it turns out it's pretty good.

EGX 2015 was home to a lot of new things, horrible energy drink, a new home with the NEC, Brimingham, and the most important one, VR. All types of it. Oculus Rift DK2, Sony VR, and above all HTC Vive / SteamVR.

I got to try all three of these out, except Sony VR only very quickly as someone didn't show, so there was a minute or so until that slot was over. Having a fancy press pass I snuck my way in, cheeky me. Sony VR and Rift DK2 are good, but Vive is better.

While I was initially skeptical of how the HTC Vive / SteamVR would perform, I left the demo room lost for words. I finally found those words, and here they are in this lovely video for you.

You don't need to watch the video, you can just listen. The videos from it I did not create. That honour goes to the amazing creators who are linked in the video's description.
