Virtual Reality (VR)

Technology has come a long way. For decades, the traditional way to game has been using your gaming device and a monitor, or your TV. There was definitely a little innovation sprinkled in between. Take Nintendo’s Virtual Boy, for one. Introduced in the 90’s, it was one of the first times a major company tried to introduce the technology into the mainstream market. Definitely rough around the edges, but a sign of promising things to come. Fast forward to the 2020s, and VR has become a staple in high quality gaming. VR has become such a phenomenon, in fact, that it is impossible to ignore its merits in gaming today. And you may not know this, but so many of your favorite games now have VR versions or natively support VR! Doom, Skyrim, Half-Life Alyx and MSFS 2020 are all a blast on VR, just to name a few hit titles.

We wouldn’t blame you for being a little intimidated by your first VR setup. Despite how popular VR is now, it’s still a novelty item for most people. But fear not! Simulator Hardware is here to help. There’s a lot that goes into a VR setup. The headset is the obvious first peripheral. Which one do you get though? The Oculus, HTC and Valve all look like solid options. Certain headsets are obviously better in some aspects than the others. Conversely, they might have some downsides too. We’ll help you decide which one suits you best. At the same time, you need a reasonably powerful PC to properly run your VR games, and we have guides for that as well. And there’s a lot more too. Rest assured, if VR’s what you’re into, you’re in the right place. This is the home of the best VR gear for your games and media.
