    I love the Vive and am happy to stay ‘virtual’ for as long as I’m entertained. Playstation VR is more comfortable, Rift is lighter but the 15 x 15 ft room is addictive and I’ve never succumbed to motion sickness with quality content. All three step up the game by adding genuine presence through the ability to replicate natural head movements rather than an anchored 360º view.
