AR to me is VR that also tracks your place in a physical space, it's one more dimension to a seated VR experience. I don't assume that "AR" means google glass, where I only see a HUD of my reality.

Interesting I would think AR is google glass, you see reality as-is and you augment it with a hud or perhaps something else, but like an overlay to reality.

VR is everything you see is fictitious and computer generated. Walking around and that being taken into account in the headesets visual to me doesn't move over to AR and it is just a UI device for VR. As a controller can do the same thing, just your bodies actions are different.

Update: Samsung's Galaxy S6 will use a 1440P screen, specifically with VR in mind. I suspect this will be the screen we see in the OR.

THIS is good news. 1440p seems to be a reasonable line-in-the-sand as a minimum for text legibility. I upsample my DK2 to 1440p in E:D and it makes the UI usable, barely. 1080p native is unusable for the font sizes used IMO.

However, this would still pale in comparison with 2x 1080 screens. a 16:9 screen splits to an 8:9 ratio square for each eye. however if you close one eye you can tell that your eye's natural monocular vision is very "portrait" by nature. 2x 16:9 screens would seem to make that "wrap around" effect much more pronounced.

Yep 2 1080's is very nice and above a single 1440P. It is 12% more pixels than 1440P. And 1440P is 44% more pixels than single 1080P.

That said, is it two true panels that need the power of the PC to move all those pixels individually? Or is there something built into the hardware that takes one 1080P screen from the PC and manipulates it for the 3d affect to each eye/each panel? So the question is will my PC need to be powerful enough to move 1080P at 90fps or be powerful enough to move twin 1080P at 90?

Instead of the bigger boat, I'll need a bigger pc.

It will be interesting to see what kind of language their lawyers craft for the documentation in order to shield themselves from trip & fall injury lawsuits, haha.

And that is why you need to read to the end. I thought you were going to say patent lawsuits. Obviously someone is sitting on a bunch of VR patents.

If it interacts with your room (from what I can gather), shouldn't it more accurately be called AR rather than VR?

It definitely seems as if every tech manufacturer is ready to forget about 3D and jump on the next bandwagon.

I think the room part is more of just spacial travel to enhance the in-VR feeling.

Come on. If they didn't do the FB deal or something similar, don't you think things would've played out differently? Or you think that really had no influence on their planning and decisions?

Cost??
Who cares. The higher the better, I say. If they can use a higher price point to deliver a correspondingly higher quality experience, plenty of people will pay. There's plenty of time for prices to come down as time and technology advance.


What could they've afford to bring to the mass market with just their KS money, I think it shows they had to be bought out. Could be wrong. I do agree they would have been forced to release something by now. So the question is are we better served getting something decent out there or waiting a looong time for something really good? I think both sides are debatable.

As for price, you are right $3000 Star Citizen dude might not care. But I do and many others I'm sure. If it is above $400 will there be a market to develop for to get it going? Sony's $800 attempts aren't even known to the main PC gaming community. How is Samsung doing with there hybrid?

Two 1080P screens, in the VR world is that considered a 1080P overall screen (stereoscope) or is that better since it is two? They mention no 4K, no one expected that because what thee hell will be driving to 4k panels?

Currently the device is wired.

If the screen is curved and gives a total immersion view, then fantastic.

About the get up and walk around, they mention the purchasing of a 15'x 15' device, that is just outside what can work for me in that realm. Seems like optional enhanced features.

We'll see, OR does deserve some of this, taking too long. It would have been a KS fail if they didn't get the Facebook cash.

People seem to be pretending that only Republican politicians are corrupt corporate shills

I don't think many think that at all. Are we prepared to read 10 paragraph responses each and every time if we have to put in every detail and disclaimer?

I think the majority of people do pick a side but they also know neither party is doing well at this time.

Each do support both business and the little guy to some level.

However for the ease and speed of it, we try to use traits to get us in and get out. I don't think it is unfair to say Repubs gravitate more toward business needs than Dems do. And Dems seems to be more about the little guy more than Repubs are. That's all. To me it seems pretty clear like that and some for each party would agree without feeling ashamed.

There are plenty of republicans that believe supporting business as their mainstay. They'll counter with protecting business, they can allow them to create jobs for the Joe's, that it starts there and Trickles(tm) down and to a degree, I agree with that. But I was an ideology shifter once the trickle stopped.

Another reasonable argument for pro-business is if we don't allow them world class protections, other countries will and business will gradually move towards those countries. That happens plenty already. Just like if you are against cloning, or any other out front controversial issue, if we don't allow it, then that will give other countries advantages over us. It's complicated.

Doing business into the US isn't easy, with regulated commodities we have basically 50 different countries, each state has their by-laws. We also have business putting city and state against each other for "corporate welfare" because of these differences between 50 states competing. In an ideal situation this wouldn't happen, but to have that you would need things like only a federal tax system. So you can't move business from CA to TX just to gain some tax money back. It's complicated.

Perhaps a deeper thought, we are still in the middle of the wild west and aren't realizing it. It really isn't over until it is one country with zero states. Perhaps that is what people are fighting over without making that comparison. The states still represent the rebellious side of things, where a singular country puts us in unison of one gov't.

I am an independent, because I am not out for political gain in what I do, so there is no reason imo to align. I align more to liberal thoughts over just one simple belief, which I believe is a fact and that is people are different. Respect it, don't give it lip service and then make policy against it.

And any political debate like this, just proves to me again, people are different simply by reading all the comments, surprise.

I believe one party represents this difference more than the other.

I believe parties like humans are dynamic and complex. Some issues each side believes in have other issues they believe in to that when you compare them together, you think how can Repubs/Dems believe in this and also believe in that to? It doesn't add up, but that is the complexities, those are the strange twists each party has, which makes it all the more confusing and harder to easily convey.

I believe even though I have a liberal slant, that my ideals are not really possible in the world we live in. But that doesn't mean we should not have a continual (and not back breakin) effort to raising the bar in all things. To me if we can achieve that, then we are a success as a species.

So did you make it this far? If not, then that is my point, are we going to give you a 1/2 hours worth of thought in every political answer? No. We use traits. If you think the trait is wrong, then tell us why.

On topic of Net Neutrality, I agree with anyone who thinks this. "At face value this seems to be a win for the Joe's over big business. However, until we see it play out, I'm really unsure if it will really be a win for the people". I'm pretty much like that with any big law and history I think justifies that caution. They don't all fail to deliver, but when they do they stain the process in whole.

Yes, online co-op works fine. FOr some reason, publishers seem to think that PC gamers have no interest in local co-op so they often cut said feature from PC ports to reduce costs. I'm sure that was the case here and, as this mod proves, re-enabling the feature is relatively trivial. Capcom will most likely restore local co-op in a future patch.

Are you sure, have you done it?

This game has confused me to hell and back with the coop.

Reading the main marketing description they use the word Assistive Coop, 1 player can switch between the two characters.

Reviews only talk about Local Coop Campaign. (Pc now via a 3rd party mod)

No talk about online coop.

Steam has no mention of coop anymore, anywhere.

I've read when the last episode is released Raid Online Coop will be available.

Just sayin...

Lastly... Sins is being sold as a separate game for PC... I big fuck you, as it's adding a slight bit of extra content, but a better graphics engine, and the two versions can't play together...

Thanks for the info, next...

Even taking it into the realm of the absurd you could argue something like CS has a socially redeeming value in its over-arching motif which is saving innocent people from bad men.

Yeah but I read this and it seems you want to make the connection between real and fantasy at some level. It seems part of you is understanding the difference between the two, but then another part wants to believe there is some connection. It's weak if there is one and unfair to this medium when other mediums have been as gruesome as the mind can think. I'd be on death row a long long time ago if I played out a dark thought, I'd go as far to say ever person on the planet would be.

Did anyone even bother reading the Wired article that clearly explains why people can see it as different colors? It also explains why one person might see it as different colors at different times.

The white balance of the image is off, so your brain has trouble separating the reflecting light from the illuminating light. This is how your brain figures out colors.

The picture of it that looks ambiguous was simply taken with bad white balance settings, and then you are viewing it with completely different white balance settings. Your brain simply doesn't know how to interpret it.

It's extremely likely people who only see it as blue/black in this image have their color temp set "too blue" on their monitor. Blue != white.

The dress is in fact not white, so... come on brain!

Well fuck there goes the mystery. I still have the Everlasting Light, my true go to.

It has to be a gag. I just loaded up the site and now the top dress was white and gold and I scrolled down to the other one which was still blue and black and when I scrolled up again it was blue and black.

That is what a couple have said happened, me as well. But you can just copy past the pic to your own pc and then there is no voodoo, and wouldn't you know it... after a while I see white and gold for a while but if I do something else or even more specifically look at that deep blue and black dress example, then look at the other pic, it starts becoming mid-blue and washed out black.

Came back to my local jpg and it was white and gold again, couldn't see nothing but. When to the site with the real dark blue and black dress. Now looked again and I got the light blue and gold, which that was the first time I saw that. Usually it was white/gold then med blue and a bit washed out black. lol

That was weird. When I first saw the picture, I saw it as White & Gold. Then when I scrolled down to the vote area, and clicked on the start button, it appeared Blue & Black to me. Now it only appears Blue & Black. Either in the vote box image, or the main image. My son only sees it as White & Gold.

Same, it is interesting and I don't see how it can be a hoax, you can get a jpg screenshot of it and exactly what you said happened to me. It seems if I don't look at it for a good while, I will initially see white and gold, but then when I see blue and black then I can't unsee that for that viewing time. Will try for a 3rd time in a few hours.

Why the fuck are these assholes even playing games, or at least games targeted to white males to begin with? I don't watch soap operas, do you hear me bitching about they exclude men as a target audience? And women in porn are victims? They control the fucking industry! And at the end of the day it's fantasy. It's all just pretend. Only really stupid people don't grasp that simple fact.

Remember this when the game Hatred is brought up again. It's all pretend, horror, gruesome, all things movies and lyrics have done for years. I agree. Not saying you have to like anything in particular or not, but we need to respect that this is all make believe. People like dabbling in darker fantasies.

The world will not be a perfect place, it just wasn't meant to be.

But one line with these people being discussed that I repeat. "You give them a name and you give them power", if I have to spell it out to some, that means ignore them and they are as weak as any persons opinion here.

I'm commenting to members here, not the sources of the news.
