HTC Vive Focus Review – Three Reasons to Upgrade to the HTC Vive
HTC Vive Focus 3 is one of the latest VR headsets from the company. It offers a totally new form of interaction with the world around us. This headset is equipped with a room-to-room tracking system that offers precise positioning and real time scene sharing. At present, pre-orders are to open on two new VR controllers: the HTC Vive Pro 2 and the HTC Vive Focus 3. In this review, we are going to take a look at both.
HTC Vive Pro 2. The HTC Vive Pro 2 looks very much like the original, only with a couple of additions. One of them is the HTC Vive headset, which is different in shape and design. The base of the Pro 2 is already used for tracking and movement. But the front face of the headset has been completely redesigned, it now looks like a mobile device, with a flat screen, a touch pad and a battery pack placed under the cushions.
HTC Vive Focus. HTC Vive Focus is simply the same headset as the HTC Vive Pro, but with a few minor differences. This unit also comes with a rechargeable battery pack, so you won’t need to plug it into the wall outlet. One thing that is different with the Focus is the face cushion, which is now made of memory foam. It has slightly raised sides, which allows the headset to sit level on your face. The base also has a more rigid back, so you can definitely tell that it’s a different device.
HTC Vive Pro. The HTC Vive Pro is arguably the most expensive of the HTC Vive devices. The biggest feature of this unit is the high-end technology inside-out tracking. This is essentially an accurate reference frame that will allow you to get a sense of where you are in real life. It also comes with two HTC Vive wireless controllers, but the cost of them is more than offset by the advantages they provide: the ability to play multiple games at once, and the ability to use your HTC Vive whenever you want.
When comparing the HTC Vive Focus and the HTC Vive Pro, one thing that you might notice right away is the price. If you look at most headsets on the market today, you will notice that they are extremely pricy. Even some of the budget-conscious models have high prices attached to them. However, when you compare the prices of HTC Vive Focus and HTC Vive Pro side-by-side, you will quickly see that there is no comparison in the pricing. In fact, the HTC Vive Focus only costs $100 more than the HTC Vive Pro, and it offers more features and room for your money!
One of the biggest differences between the HTC Vive Focus and HTC Vive Pro is the number of ways you can utilize your new headset. When compared with competing headsets like the Rift and PlayStation, the Vive headset does offer many more methods for gaming. With a game installed on the HTC Vive, you can walk around the environment while playing that game. You can also stand inside of an object to interact with the game. You can walk up and down ladders to get to higher places, change outfits from time to time, and much more. Because of this, the Vive headset offers an incredibly fun experience for people who love to play virtual games but don’t want to invest a whole lot of money into the hardware.
With the HTC Vive Focus, you can purchase a standard HTC Vive headset, as well as buy the Vive software for $US500 dollars more than the Rift. If you have been waiting to invest in the HTC Vive, now is the perfect time to do so! The HTC Vive allows you to be completely immersed in your experience of the virtual world. By connecting your phone or tablet to your computer via USB port, you can take advantage of the Vive’s fantastic motion-based controllers, so you can easily move around and interact with characters in the game. For those who are still on the fence about purchasing the HTC Vive, the discount prices and freebies offered by retail partners such as Best Buy and CompUSA should encourage you to jump in sooner rather than later.
If you want to feel a true sense of freedom and exploration, the HTC Vive should be at the top of your list. Not only does it offer the same excellent tracking technology seen in the original models, but the new controllers provide an intuitive method of interaction that makes games more fun and interesting to play. Even if you are not interested in hardcore gaming, the Vive headset and controllers can still be used to enjoy casual games that you could otherwise not afford.
