    There's a few different VR systems other than Occulus. Like I mentioned, Valve has the Index which is a really good headset but it's pricy and needs a pricy gaming PC. Sony has the PSVR headset for the PS4 (I think it works with the PS5 too). It's along the line of the original Quest for quality. HTC also has the Vive headsets but they're up there in price. I think they're supposed to be really good but I don't know anyone with one due to the price.

    Yeah I mean wireless ones. I have a gaming laptop but don't plan on buying more/upgrading along with not wanting me to be tethered to it in VR keeps me out of those. The mobility of the oculus is the reason I'm actually interested in it.

    If you haven't been, there is a place called velocity VR at the kart racing place by talking stick. You wear a VR headset, a backpack (probably pc and battery), a headset and have a gun controller. They have zombie games, future games and more. It's an amazing experience and made me not interested in tethered VR at all

    People buying it third party are out of their minds. There is no reason to pay double price.

    Yeah but now it's unboxed and I'd have to deal with people trying to haggle me down plus I've downloaded and installed all the games from the previous console. I'll pass.

    I'm waiting patiently for a PS5. Very impatiently.

    Good looking out.

    I expect none will be in stores any time soon and I'll just be trying to buy them online whenever I see them.

    meanwhile if you google "series X stock" now all these websites are just making clickbait articles to tell you everyone is probably out of stock but "click the links to their page from our website" hoping to get some referral revenue.

    Yep, you need to be on that site, and on it within one minute to get them. I would create an account with all of the major retailers that nowinstock tracks and have your credit card info already in the system so it can be a quick few clicks.
