I've played around 20 hours of elite dangerous in my Vive and loved it! That said given it's a seated experience the Rift would basically be as good (excluding the smaller FOV http://doc-ok.org/?p=1694) Elite is freaking amazing inside VR and I'd also highly suggest also getting a HOTAS if you can afford it! https://www.slant.co/topics/1928/~hotas-hands-on-throttle-and-stick-for-elite-dangerous-under-250 See More
Stuart Kearney's Experience
There is a camera on the top of the headset, meaning the player will be able to have that camera feed sent to their headsets screen, which will allow for the user to see what is around them and in the room without having to take off the headset. Also when you start up the Vive for the first time you set a play space boundary and when you get near that afterwards while playing a transparent grid pops up to say "Hey, you're about to run into a wall or something else!"

The tracking technology and software is designed by Valve, the creators of Portal, Half Life, CSGO, TF2 and more. They are also the owners of Steam. This sets a bit of a president that Valve tends to know what they are doing when they do anything in the gaming field. While it does not promise the Vive will be a total success or exactly what everyone wants, it stands to be believed that Valve will create a good product. See More
