The top VR Headset - Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, PlayStation VR comparison, and more

Honorable mentions - Microsoft Hololens and Google Glass

While obviously very different in nature, these two devices are almost identical in their differences to our other VR headsets. Both devices are wireless, and have built-in processors that utilize their respective Operating System, they are both still in development, and are in every way more of an AR (Augmented Reality) device than a VR one.

Price and Release date

The Hololens' developmental edition is available for $3,000 from Microsoft with no release date available for the final version. The Google Glass' explorer edition is no longer being sold by Google but can be bought second hand from varying sellers. The original cost was $1,500, however the device can go anywhere between $1,000 to $3,000. The release date is equally unknown, and the entire project is quite mysterious, so any dates you see are completely based on guess-work.

Keep in mind that the Hololens is only available in the U.S. and Canada and has an application process.

Considering the fact that these devices don't really seem to be made for games, and have very little information handy, we can cross them off our list without going into more detail.
