Gamescom 2015 - For the last couple of years it has been the Oculus Rift that has had the attention of trade shows like CES and Gamescom, but for this year's Gamescom, it is the HTC Vive that has been nominated for the 'Best Hardware' award.

HTC's Vive headset is powered by Valve's SteamVR platform, where it joins past winners and nominees in the Oculus Rift DK2 (which won the award last year) and Sony's Project Morpheus (nominated last year). At CES 2014, Oculus won the overall 'Best of CES' award for the Crystal Cove prototype, but it looks like 2015 is the year of Vive.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
