Virtual Goalie – Hardware Suggestions

Virtual Goalie - Hardware Suggestions

Oculus Rift

We support the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive.

However, for most users, we highly recommend the Oculus Rift.

The Rift is easier to setup for many users.  It doesn’t require as much accessory hardware. 

Most importantly, it is significantly cheaper than the HTC Vive and the HTC Vive Pro.

As of January 14, 2019 the price is $349 on Amazon.

Acer Nitro 5 - Oculus Ready Computer

Acer Nitro 5 is the perfect entry level VR Ready Laptop.

We suggest you buy the laptop from Amazon because their support and return policies are fantastic.

However, be careful.  Do not just search for “Acer Nitro 5” on Amazon and find the cheapest laptop.  They must be “VR Ready” or “Oculus Ready”.

The Buy button here will take you directly to Amazon and the Oculus Ready computer found on Acer’s site. 

You can go directly to Acer to find the Oculus Ready Nitro 5’s.  When you get to that page, look at the laptops with the “Oculus Ready” symbols.  Click into one.  Then, click buy now.  The AN515-53-52FA model’s buy now will take you to the Amazon product linked with the button here.

As of January 14, 2019 the price is $645.98 on Amazon.
