The one with the overall higher resolution would be preferable at least for OT or other flight sims. Having good distance view is crucial. Fancy laser tracking is nice for walking experiences but not necessary for seated (cockpit) experience.
I have a DK2, and low rez with no antialiasing prevents me from using it for OT(beside from world tilting issue).
On the other hand final specs and hardware isn't there right now so there's no need to decide today.

I'm impressed with Steam product; it appeared from nowhere with all this cool stuff. But what about the support from games companies? Oculus definitely have it. If a game work with oculus, will work with Steam VR?

 ... they do have the opportunity to do something interesting in design terms ... like the spine-connector from the Matrix series. They could roll out some extra money misusing those cables. And all the comercials around it ... i could see the quotes: "just plug in to ... the OCULUS" ... "Witch pill you choose ? ... The USB pill !"  =D

Oculus launches version 1.0 SDK privately desu
As promised, Oculus launched the awaited version 1.0 of its SDK before the end of the year, but will only be sent to developers who are putting the finishing touches to their projects...... https://developer2.oculus.com/

Rift 1.0 SDK will be sent this week to developers along with preliminary versions of Hardware Rift.
 
If you go to launch a title for the Rift in the first quarter, you need early access to hardware Rift and new platform features to complete your game or application. The 1.0 SDK and runtime Rift include features related to consumer product, so we currently limited release to developers who are putting the finishing touches on titles for release.
If you are planning to launch a title and not even have the hardware, you can upload a preview of your application from the submission tool Oculus and we will contact you for the next steps.
 
We will send more hardware Rift developers every week in the period until the launch. Meanwhile, the SDK 0.8 DK2 and continue to be the right platform for the early development for Rift. You only need the SDK 1.0 if your release is imminent.
 
We are waiting to see your experience in the Rift RV when it is launched in the first quarter!
 
- Oculus team

on Twitter, indicating that the 1.0 SDK itself is compatible with the DK2

 Here's the kickstarter if you want to support them, it is a game that gives Miero created just for the Virtual Reality.
We can support the campaign and get hold of the game from 14 £ (about 18 €), or if ours are the extras and physical collectibles have other tiers higher for everyone. The campaign ends on February 20 and the goal is to raise the £ 100,000 mark, and there is a stretch goal to add support for PlayStation VR if it exceeds £ 138,000

Virtual reality . HP Reverb G2 VR has just taken a quantum leap in augmented reality ... with a resolution of 2160 x 2160 pixels per eye. 114º field of view. Space Audio MSFT .. a true wonder ..
Outerra should not be left behind in this technology ... a planet seen from above with VR, it must be impressive, there will be no need for space travel.

it is a question that I have always liked to ask ,,,
at the beginning it was a new and insipient technology and therefore very unstable or changing, and it was very expensive to invest time in following a discontinuous and erratic rhythm ... it was quite predictable, because it was a new technology (Oculus Rift).
  that has already changed a lot ,, now there is more competition and it is much more stable and steps are taken in the right direction ,, vision, fatigue, tracking ,,,, in my opinion, its inclusion in OT can no longer be a question of priorities but a matter of necessity, because it would give an impressive added value to the engine, because impressive is already the engine.
however I am aware that this answer depends on other variables that I am not aware of ,,, so I will continue without asking the question.

OT used to work quite well with former versions for Rift. I also got it to work with Lenovo Explorer and HP Reverb (WindowsVR). Over time more rendering issues occured. Recently I tried it with Oculus Quest and Link cable and it was just a slide show with unpredictable head tracking.

I see...still a lot of work to do...yes I agree : probably unavoidable work ...as outerra is an almost perfect virtual world it seems somehow born to be used with VR....so it should be there sooner or later....and very well useable....it seems though that this will be achieved reliably only at the last mile ..unless it gains higher priority than getting us a "game"..wait and see.
