    Why is the Oculus better?


    Also, why only 3DOF? Is 6 really that hard, or something?

    I remember Oculus rushing a headset out first and having no roomscale/controllers, HTC came along later with a fully-finished product that was infinity more polished. Oculus then rushed roomscale out and it has been plagued with problems.
