Half Life Alyx - Cosmos thoughts by Valve

Recommended Posts

Just seen this pre-release video on Half Life Alyx. They give a quick review of each headset, unfortunately the Cosmos thoughts aren't very flattering. Skip to 24:40. Nothing new we didn't already know about in it's current limitations but really means that HTC need to get these issues sorted to attract they VR newcomers who are inspired by Half Life Alyx (of which there will be many!).

Ya, I'm getting a lot of ribbing about this on the Oculus Forum, lol!  Vive wands also did not fair well either with the recommendation to switch to Index controllers (which are still not available in Australia anyway).  Oh well, at least I've still got my good old Rift cv1 w/2x sensors.

Hopefully this review will light a fire under the seats of Vive engineers.

In the video they are using a handgun, which is still playable with one hand. HTC you are lucky they didn't test it with a rifle, otherwise it would be way more shameful comparing to others.

New beta update just came out (1.0.9.2).  Seems to be a pretty significant improvement in tracking.  Too bad it was not available prior to this headset comparison YT video.
