For some reason I'm starting to think Valve for PC Level VR and Oculus for Mobile level VR.

Why?

From reading and today's article is about them speaking only about mobile. From their forums the natives that want a pc solution are a bit disappointed with very little pc talk recently and it all about the Samsung. No real road map for the PC.

Perhaps there is a gentleman's agreement between Steam and OR, they have collaborated, each taking the market they prefer. I sort of doubt that one, but out of nowhere Steam comes in with a product as good with a date for the PC.

Just seems the focus for each is at a different platform, at least recently.

So what we're saying here is that a true mass-market, worthwhile VR experience that won't cost a vital organ is still several years away.

I ran the #'s on two 1200 x 1080 panels pixel wise, it isn't that much more than 1080P (still quite a bit lower than 1440P), so that tells me we can run this with a 970, maybe not ultra on everything to get 90, but it's reasonable.

Not sure why the negativity. If someone is spending $3000 on Star Citizen, surely there is a market for high-end cards.

It's just that for every one who spends $3k there are 100 that won't spend > $300 and another 200 that will only spend less than that...;) In other words, the market for $3k 3d cards (assuming it won't cost even more) is exceptionally small & limited.

But there is still a market with good mark up.

CA now has a minimum wage for programmers, which is reasonably high, could be another reason.

Right so an old game is going to have a high cost of entry, so we'll have to wait for a sale at some point. I think this makes more sense if it was brand new, they hype and all. But who is wanting to pay $60 in any kind of numbers now for ESO?

Except that it is a brand new game... for consoles. If it was free on PC's a nice portion of the console crowd would say F this game, that's not fair.

I'm not defending any decisions here, I'm just thinking this is the logic behind it all.

Fair enough, for Console gamers, makes sense, for PC gamers, $60 will be a tough swallow today.

But a real question, have the fixed the issue with a group and phasing if someone is one a different sub-part of a quest? It was promised but at least 6 months ago that was still in there and seemed like it was abandoned.

It's still a work in progress, but a majority of them don't make your groupmates invis anymore, for being in a different quest step. Probably around 75% or so of the zone quests are fixed.

Guild and personal story are still, and always will be solo only.


Hope that helps.

Thanks, that was thee game breaker for me. Will check out the patch notes, maybe...

GRID needs at LEAST a 10Mbps connection. That rules me out. In my area the best I can get is 1.5Mbps because AT&T refuses to update their copper DSL wiring to something better. (and no, I dont live in the boonies). The US can really suck for internet.

With the new rules I think they are going to have to change the name of your service. 25mpbs is going to be the minimum to call the service broadband.

No, they've stated it will be B2P. You still need to buy the game, the sub is what's going away (well... becoming optional). The Secret World does this too.

Better going Star Wars route, let us all try it for free, have a ftp and a monthly pay route. If good, I'd go monthly.

If anyone has installed this new ESO patch, it was massive. Its basically an over haul of the entire game.

So in an other words, it just got good?

But a real question, have the fixed the issue with a group and phasing if someone is one a different sub-part of a quest? It was promised but at least 6 months ago that was still in there and seemed like it was abandoned.

Yeah not that I'm in the market for this, but I don't mind hearing how the Android part and the streaming parts of this work in the wild.

From what I've heard, Star Citizen is an extremely modified version of CryEngine3. Think 'Dark Forces' vs 'Doom' type of modification. They're making it do things that I don't think Cytek even thought it could do. And all the original netcode has been thrown out...supposedly.

Goes back to Skyrim/Gamebryo talk yesterday, you know over the years they knocked that thing around a lot.

Hey if they get money or not, whatevahs.

But you cannot deny they were a weasel doing this back in the day. They were touring with Spirit and this is a song of theirs. Later STH comes out and you can't say they took a part of their melody and we aren't talking a standard rock n roll melody, but a very unique one.

That happened, imo no question, pretty low of them, unless they can prove they were given permission, then all is good in LedLand.

It's not even the same melody. It's a similar chord progression, but not the same. Page was probably inspired by it and wanted to do something similar. That happens all the time. Suing over it almost half a century later is retarded.

Yeah I don't care about the lawsuit, but he took it from them, it is very close, anyone who would hear this would immediately think Stair Way.
