True, although I think the Oculus Touch controllers look a lot more comfortable to hold than the Vive controllers.

What's interesting to me is that the Vive is very much promoted as a standing experience, with a reasonable tracking volume and a front facing camera and the chaperon system to allow you to move around safely. Meanwhile, the Oculus is mostly shown as a seated experience. If it's true that these systems try to focus more on one thing than the other, your choice should be largely informed by the kind of applications you want to create.
