> the room scale capabilities of the Oculus Rift with Touch controllers appears to be highly subjective

You're too kind.

I hope to hear one day soon that Oculus has brought it's tracking up to the standard set by the Vive. VR enthusiasts shouldn't have to put up with poor tracking on a high-end VR system.

Seems like the Rift maximum trackable area is the same as the minimum recommended size used by most Vive games. It's odd that Vive manages to do it better with only two sensors.

The Vive lighthouses aren't sensors, they're beacons. They sweep the play area with lasers , which are picked up by the sensors on the headset and controllers.

The Rift uses sensors that track lights on the headset and controllers. This is much harder to do, and I hope they find a way to make it work well.
