With that I think I'm gonna go with the Rift. Anyone know if they'll drop the price to $350 again as Xmas gets closer? I have a couple of bucks in Amazon rewards that can drop it close to $300 if they have another sale.
In my opinion, if you want a seated experience mostly, then I'd say the Rift is the best option. It's cheaper, and when you remove roomscale, there really isn't as big of an advantage to the Vive. On the other hand, roomscale is just a bit easier on the Vive due to not using USB 3-based webcams like the Rift.
As for a sale... it's hard to tell, but I'd probably lean toward no. It's pretty close to Christmas at this point, and we're not likely to have too much more in the way of sales... especially if it has already been on sale a time or two since Thanksgiving.
