My claim for the gear VR got approved, even after Verizon spelled my name wrong, yay!

I'll have it in a couple weeks.

Got the Gear VR. Whoa. Much impress. Such presence. The resolution and quality are *ok*, its powered by a cell phone after all and only using about 1/3 of the screen for what you're seeing through the eye pieces. The graphic quality of the games are somewhere between N64 and PS2, depending on the title. The motion tracking / frame rate / refresh rate etc, are good, no head aches or motion sickness. I was surprised how quickly my brain just accepted the new reality that I was seeing through the eye pieces and how i got nervous while hanging off a cliff edge, or felt the sensation of moving really fast through tight corridors.

I need to pick up a controller. Been trying to make one of my PS3 controllers work but its finicky. Without a controller, you can still play lots of games. They're controlled by pointing a cursor that is in the middle of your field of view, or by using a touch pad that is on the right side of the gear. Its similar to a track pad on a laptop, swipe up/down/left/right, button in the middle, or tap the trackpad, and there is a back button with press / press+hold functionality.

I want an Occulus now. Still so much $$$ though, and it has had some launch related issues.

The Gear VR will be what gets more people excited about more powerful VR headsets. It definitely got me more excited for it. Try the 360 degree Youtube videos, pretty cool. Also how is the porn? I couldn't try it where I was at the time.... :(
