VR YouTuber JoshDub: What's His Setup Like, and What Does He Play?
Josh Wanders, known online as JoshDub, is an Australian gaming YouTuber who has been active since the summer of 2013. He primarily collaborates with creators like Mully, Your Narrator, EddieVR, JuicyFruitSnacks, and ReeKid. Together, these creators are known as The Boys, and JoshDub is the member of the group who has the most subscribers. JoshDub has posted hundreds of videos and is often considered to be a pioneer in VR entertainment on the video-sharing website, reaching more than 9 million subscribers along the way.
What VR Headset Does JoshDub Use?
JoshDub uses the HTC Vive Pro virtual reality headset, which he pairs with the HTC Vive wireless adapter to connect the headset to his PC without extra wires. Instead of using the HTC Vive controllers that come with the headset, he switched them out for Valve Index Knuckles.
In order to get the best video quality for his streams, JoshDub connects his HTC Vive Pro to a powerful computer with these specs:
- Samsung SSD 860 EVO 1TB drive
- MSI GeForce RTX 280 Ti graphics card
- Intel Core i9-9900K processor
What VR Game Does JoshDub Play?
JoshDub regularly plays games in VRChat, a social app that he uses to create comedy sketches for his fans. VRChat allows users to talk to other players and appear as any character they want, and people can also customize their environments any way they’d like. This gives JoshDub much more creative freedom than in a regular VR game. But JoshDub plays other games as well: While VRChat is his favored game, he also plays The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, GTA 5 VR, Surgeon Simulator VR, and other games periodically.
What VR Game Does JoshDub Play With ReeKid?
JoshDub will often team up with fellow YouTuber ReeKid to play a variety of games, such as Fortnite, Zero Caliber, and Blade & Sorcery.
