    Hi,
    If I connect a 3D VR headset (Oculus, etc) to HDMI, can I use this headset instead of a monitor and play non-3d games? Will they create stereo effect in games?
    Thanks

    You can play non vr games in theaters mode which is like sitting in the cinema and playing your games on a big screen, as for 3d games i know a few will run in 3d sbs with some big screen vr apps......you would need to go through them yourself as a trail and error to find out which ones work.

    Bear in mind the resolution on most headsets isn't amazing if you use them in theatre mode or some such. There are a fair few apps that let you do this.

    Also, all headsets need a real monitor in the first place to set it up and start it.

    No headsets, as far as I know, have software on board to allow it to act as an independent display/monitor.
