....Maybe. I don't entirely disagree, despite the fact that I'm a Vive owner. One thing I'll say is that HTC have no reported plans or a "Vive2" any time soon, and seem to be building and releasing things in a fairly modular way. Wireless is on the way this year, as is a new, supposedly more comfortable headstrap with headphones built in. There's talk of upgraded versions (ie easier to manufacture, I believe - no real technical advantage) of the lighthouses, but nothing announced as far as I know. A higher resolution HMD would be nice, but it seems like that's waiting on technological advances, as well as better CPUs and video cards to handle something even more beefy than it already needs. There's talk of different controllers coming out, at some point.
So, I bit the bullet and bought it, knowing that it's early. I like the idea that there will be incremental optional hardware upgrades for the next few years, and not another $500-$800 purchase on the horizon. I don't think Vive hardware goes through any major revisions until 2019. Rift probably has some work to do with its tracking, from what I've read, and PSVR lifespan is already limited by the hardware it's tied to.
