So last week my favorite game developer Valve announced that there was a new Half Life game coming in March 2020. Great! After 15 years, one of my favorite game series is getting a new game, and it is VR (Virtual Reality) exclusive.. Interesting! That got my interest peeked in what VR gaming was all about. If Valve is continuing the Half Life series with a VR exclusive, they must feel a big potential here. So I started doing some research what HMD (Head mounted devices) were on the market and found my self looking at two products, either the Oculus Rift S (450€), a new, revamped version of the original Oculus Rift or the Valve Index (1079€). The Valve Index looks really great and offers a better experience, but comes with the hefty price tag. Fortunately Black Friday was around the corner and I ended up getting a Rift S for 400€! I will post an update once I have experienced the world of VR.
