Reviewing the HTC VIVE Cosmos Elite, one of the more expensive VR gaming headsets with full camera tracking for 6 degrees of freedom. If you want to experience next-gen PC VR games, and you have the space and money to spare, this’ll play all of the big titles like Half Life Alyx.
The VIVE Cosmos is one of HTC’s most premium virtual reality headsets, capable of playing games from the Viveport store as well as Steam VR. This is the Elite version, which also comes with two external cameras for tracking your position, while the headset’s lenses can track your motions for impressive precision.
I’ve been testing out the VIVE Cosmos Elite and the technology is definitely impressive, if pricey. Of course, you have to be tethered to your PC the whole time, and you’ll need a reasonably beefy rig to get a smooth VR performance. Not to mention plenty of room to really make the most of it.
Of course, if it’s convenience you’re after, the Oculus Quest is still the best (and more affordable) option. But The Cosmos offers a stronger selection of games and incredible visuals, for the most immersive experience.
