Reasons why HTC Vive is RIGHT for you
You are the person who wants VR. One who loves the games and new technology that comes with virtual reality. Well, an HTC Vive might be right for you.
You love Virtual Reality
This is one of the most obvious factor that makes you hate or love the HTC Vive. If you love virtual reality and have been waiting for the day when you can finally get one for your home, then it’s a good reason. VR is just a small niche now. Although some people are getting into the band wagon, it is still not as popular like, say, smartphones in the past year.
You would love the HTC Vive. The installation process, the setup, the HTC Vive games. Everything. Just as long as you have that love for virtual reality in general.
You have the Space and Cash
Okay, let’s be real. HTC Vive is expensive and without money, you can’t even get to enjoy the games. Plus, the space needed for you to go around would have to be fairly wide so that you won’t tip over some furniture while you kill robots in a virtual game. For dorm rooms and apartments where room space is a premium, this is a big thing to consider.
The expenses does not end with the HTC Vive alone. You need to have a PC capable of driving the device and a faster internet connection to stream or download content to your Vive. And the HTC Vive games that can start from $20 up.
If you got the cash and room space, then the HTC Vive is right for you.
You have Technical Know-How
Not that you should be an IT expert to maintain the HTC Vive, but the overall, general knowledge of how to install wires and drivers to the right place. A little background on installation of hardware and software is enough to get you by. Or some friend who can help you with the process. When problems arise, it’s easy to troubleshoot the HTC Vive if you know or you have someone who knows how to fix it.
You’re fairly Healthy
Nope, it’s not that you need to be ultra fit to use the HTC Vive or any VR headset. It’s the fact that you have to be fit in order to combat motion sickness after or while playing the HTC Vive games. Some reports of throwing up just 5 minutes of using the device are seen on some people.
Next is eyesight. You have a good vision. This means you don’t have pains when looking at a glowing display near your eyes, or you don’t have a serious eye condition when you try to play the game. Using the HTC Vive can be doable with your prescription glasses on, but when your physician tells you not to play some VR with your eye defects, then it is wise to follow the advice.
You are a Gamer
Yes, the enthusiasts who wants to try everything about games. We had gone with mobile gaming, console gaming and the PC master race. This is a new way to do gaming in the new era of technology. For those who are willing to spend some money on a new tech that will be more popular in the coming years, then an HTC Vive is the best platform to start with.
Well, if you can, you can start with Google Cardboard. Just saying.
