If you fancy getting into virtual reality – and you have the budget – then the HTC Vive is a great choice. It has a number of advantages over its closest competitor, the Oculus Rift, especially when it comes to room tracking.
Thanks to two sensors that you mount on a wall, the HTC Vive can track you as you move around your room – delivering a level of immersion that's lacking in the Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR.
