It’s not for anyone who doesn’t have a gaming PC with at least an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 or AMD Radeon RX480 graphics card. It’s also not really for anyone who doesn’t already own the regular Vive headset because the $799 kit doesn’t include any controllers or the necessary Lighthouse boxes for room-scale tracking.
