Finally after years of development of Virtual Reality Headsets, users now have variety of choices to buy them. Now it’s your wish that if you want to go for Oculus Rift, Sony PlayStation VR, Samsung Gear VR or any other manufacturer of VR Headsets.
Some of us were very excited about these new invention in gaming world but we also had some confusion about the brand. It’s always better to know some Pros and Cons about the product before buying it. So here are some brief details of the different VR manufacturing companies.
1. SONY PLAYSTATION VR (PS VR)
Sony has just announced their VR headsets this week and the official launch date is in second half of 2016.
The PS VR is around $400, and it works with the Sony Playstation 4. Current cost of PS4 is something around $370, and maybe you are having PS4 in your home already , if not you are still able to buy it as comparatively it is much cheaper than the PC (which you require in running VR of other high-end competitors). As we all know Sony is trustable company which comes with new updates and innovations regularly.
The major drawback of SONY Playstation VR is that, last year in testing it had some signs of motion sickness (Sony itself has acknowledged). Also, the expected launch date of PS VR are little bit late than the other big headsets. With the other VR headsets you will have lots of indie project and demos. Some of them will be good, some of them will be bad, but there are a lot of them!!
Keeping Pros and Cons in mind of Playstation Virtual Reality, we have come across the conclusion that you must buy PS VR if you are looking for some smaller investments or you already have PlayStation already at your home.

2. OCULUS RIFT
Oculus Virtual Reality headsets, also known as Oculus rift are expected to launch on 28 March 2016.
Oculus Rift are best known for it’s quality. Company has designed the equipment so perfect to deliver a proper experience of the gaming to it’s users. Oculus mus get credit for establishing the idea of virtuality in recent years and also it has excited game developers and users alike. Oculus Touch is also one of the major factor of the Rift’s success. Touch will allow it’s users to use their hands in the digital world. These extra controllers add lot of fun and maybe worth waiting for.
We all know that good stuff always come with a price. If we compare others headsets with Oculus Rift, Rift is somehow really expensive. It comes with the cost of $600, on its own. System Specifications we need to run Rift is also somehow very high, so we need a perfect PC to use it which will also charge us some money.
If you are looking for the best gaming experience and want to spend good amount of money on VR headsets then Rift is your choice. Oculus also had done great to reduce motion sickness.

3. HTC VIVE
It’s a Joint Venture between Taiwanese tech giant HTC and Valve. Release date for HTC Vive is 5 April 2016.
It comes with the power of track and read your hand and as well as the body positions. One of the best things to Vive is that you stay connected to the real world. You also receive phone calls and text messages while you’re in the virtuality. HTC Vive also has a camera in it that make you little aware of the actual world happenings. As it is strategic alliance of both of the companies, we are also sure of the new awesome games in the future by Valve.
This will also be little bit expensive. If we include the cost of the computer(PC) we will use for the Vive and the actual Vive itself, we will get the amount like 800 dollars. Though you have to remember that you will also get some extra accessories in Vive. You also need to make a bit of space for the equipments if you really want to enjoy all the features Vive provide.
4. SAMSUNG GEAR VR
The Samsung Gear VR is a mobile virtual reality headset developed Samsung Electronics, powered by Oculus’s technology. Gear was released on late November 2015.
If you’re looking for one budget options, then Samsung Gear VR is the best choice for you. It runs on the smartphone rather than the expensive Computers or Playstations. You can get this device in just 100 dollars.
As Samsung Gear VR are cheaper than the all others headsets, obviously you will not get the best hand quality of virtual reality that you will get from higher-end devices.
