Canceled my OR order because of the delays. After
seeing the all in one vr device I feel its better to wait for a 2nd generation device and just use a gear vr for video content.

HTC Vive = Gaming!
Oculus = this social crap
That's such a loaded statement. Oculus actually has a healthier game lineup at launch. The Vive is better for tech demo experiences at the moment due to room scale and motion controllers.

They both have a lot of room to grow in all directions.

Sorry but no... this has made me not want to go down the VR route... I use my computer at home (I'll read and comment here at work only...) to get away from "Social" to bury myself into the game I am playing which is not multiplayer or online... I play Elite Dangerous in Solo.. because I do not want other people in my gaming experiences... i'll stick with Track IR...

Only a person that hasn't tried VR would say that. My advice would be if you don't want to buy into VR then don't try it. It's a game changer and once you dabble there is no going back I'm afraid.

VR Hype Train!!! Choo Choo!!!

instead of getting together and doing stuff we can now just drink in a circle in a virtual room and play games in that room. Reminds me of that movie with Bruce Willis where everyone has a robot version of themselves and walks around outside like that. Except, its like in VR. How long would it take before men are being tricked by fake women avatars... dear lord... this is scary and cool at the same time.. at least you could sorta hangout with your friends living in different areas of the world.
