So if I were to buy a headset?
The pros of the Oculus are that it has many games and is $100 cheaper than the Samsung. The Samsung has a nicer screen, I like the way it fit my head ands the weight of it felt better. It's cables and lack of light houses were a plus. I would say that the Samsung is my favorite and were they closer in price it would be a no brainer. Still, I really like the Samsung.
I pre-ordered the oculus head set when the CV1 was announced, so I have had about a year and a half to play with mine. I do not know what the software on the Samsung is like, but Oculus's storefront has matured quite nicely, considering how it launched on day one. In addition, Oculus with touch is 400$ right now, which is an incredible steal in my mind. Oculus also bundles Lucky's Tale, which I tend to go back to every few months are so, because it's so simple but fun, and Dead and Buried, which was an absolute blast when it shipped, I'm sure I've dumped 100+ hours into it, which is quite unusual for me. I do not know if Dead and Buried still has a "strong" user base or not, but if you can find a group of 4, you're in for a treat.
Rango is a rather simple but enjoyable puzzle solver with cool tribal music.
The games I've been less impressed with are the on-rail shooters, like Arktika.1, bleh. Fun for about 2 minutes.
