Solid idea. Something different in this space. If they can make it great is another issue. Lets hope.

No good non-3D TVs available. The flagships

but I've yet to see a low-end TV over 37" that doesn't look like a pile of crud with vaseline smeared all over it

You think the masses buy flagships? I have never and will never buy the high end, especially when the differences become even more obscure or over-analyzed.

I have 1 37, 1 42, 1 45... no smears. What are you even talking about? Do you know how to calibrate, use native rez? You must. All my flats no matter the size are sharp, even the 90" DLP 720P projector I paid $800 for 3 years ago. The only smeared TV's I've seen were run off native rez with bad scalers. I simply avoid that.

I have hung up the phone. But how about we once again focus on Cell Phone quality instead of everything else but cell phone quality? Coverage, speakers etc. Really zero improvement in years in my neck of the woods.

If they only start selling 4K's, it will happen in time and I'm for that. Same price as they are today, just 4K.

4K doesn't have to stand a chance, it just has to be the only option and it will by default.

Didn't 3D do the same thing? Pretty much all new TV sets basically came with mandatory 3D shit on them

Still plenty of non-3D's were always available, but it's different since you need specific content.

The duh point I make is when 4K's are the same price and when they become the only option, then we will have it. I don't know why anyone would be against more res at the same price. So imo that is different than 3D, many people didn't like the effect.

Why 1080 over 720? More rez. Why 4k over 1080? More rez.

If it scales 720 and 1080 beautifully it's all win.

The question for me is do I go 4K Projector or an 80"+ 1080P TV to replace my 720P projector when that time comes?

HP lays off 20,000 more who then go on long term unemployment costing 600 million.

And the change would cost billions.

uite possibly the most successful permanently-unfinished game ever released. And then re-releasing it in an unfinished state on another engine was just genius. [/quote:

At certain time in their life-cycles, would you think Minecraft may still hold that title?

I liked TW2. I am saddened this won't have full game coop. I figured since TW2 had a coop mode that they had the knowledge in hand to make a fully coop RPG. It would be a slightly poor-man's Coop Skyrim that some dream about. But I'm still interested to see how this one turns out. It was a young team that to me have improved on every release. I'm totally ok with companies like that, they may have had a rocky start.

Oculus Rift is a convention device. It works great at conventions where the exposure is limited. Once you own it, you will realize that it is nauseating and impractical to use.

He's speaking from hands on experience folks.

i don't think gaming will be its killer app.

For us it would be. Most here hating it, if there was a landmark moment, we'd be there, like we've been with every other landmark moment.

My Daily OR Editorial: (Some based on posts here)

People stuck view finders in their face. If the effect is truly awesome people surely would stick their face in it. Save them money traveling the world by using this, surley people will stick their face in it. People act as if we haven't done stupid/weird shit before. If just kinky people use it, it will be huge.

All it ever takes for anything to succeed is a kill app. This does something like a Quake/3DFX thing to us, sold and sold.

For me it doesn't need to be the next big thing for everyone. I just need games enhanced by it. Anything else to me is gravy or useless.

All it needs to do is work as a device and not require things that make no sense with gaming. (This has been guaranteed(tm))

If it somehow makes porn better, then it's game over... it's the next big thing, no matter if everyone here hates it. Home Run - Touchdown - SCORE!!!!!

If it gets refined to glasses then attached to one's nerve... you are suggesting our future is cyborgism and not so far in the future. That's a pretty big step. Brave new world.

Zucks has mentioned a scope far and wide for this, so he is thinking big, like useage in space big as mentioned, he isn't missing that. It's a medium that allows you to be somewhere without having to be there physically.

I get the initial gut punch, we all had it. I get the sketicism to a point. But now imo it's all wait and see. It can be anything from way better because of this purchase to Oh-Hell No! But we really don't know at this point. To hate it in full now, makes you half empty.

Thanks for putting a huge dent into KS confidence, Palmer, you fucking tool.

Maybe you can laugh at it while sipping tea with Mark Zuckerberg.

Or treat it as a lesson as what can happen with kick starting.

If some small outfit is pitching something and if it hits it big, expect a company to buy them out.

Why? Because if you assume that, you'll be going in with the correct assumptions.

Everyone is still learning all the ins and outs of KS.

Uh oh. Ok after reading that interview, Im concerned. Anyone else notice how many times they try to shift focus from gaming to something they call the Virtual Reality 'Experience'? Yeah, looks like the faceshaft is going to be nice and deep.

No doubt they are talking more general now. But lets say the sale never happened. There was plenty of talk longterm that VR would go well beyond games and into all the same area's that are being talked about more since the sale.

If I can buy the device and install games ready for it and no other BS, to me that is the bottom line and to me it's the same. Names are of no matter, if you got the right product you got the right product.

I have on my PC, games and a link to Facebook. The two don't bleed into one another unless I pick Facebook games, which I've never even looked at. On the same system, totally walled from one another.

Huge plans for VR? Uh huh, I'm sure it'll be as impactul and lasting as 3D, lol!

I think he is referring to this link that I posted in the main Facebook/Oculus thread:

Reddit Sony Leak

I think this leak on reddit is what motivated Palmer to sell Oculus, because they knew they couldn't compete with Sony due to their investment in software to run on it. Reading that, and it makes me want to go buy a PS4.

But yes, it sounds like Sony has huge plans for VR. I grew up with the console wars, and I welcome the coming VR wars!

And that it made Facebook a little nervous to.

How is this a good business decision? I thought gaming companies made tons of money banning accounts and getting people to buy new ones? Interesting. BTW FYI this post is Trolling Free.

Well if you want to get back on the normal servers... you'll have to make a new user and use a new copy. Same as it ever was? Or unless the cheater is happy playing with other cheaters, most probably won't be. If for some reason I were a cheater and got banned, the last thing I'd do would be buy another copy of the same game. Unless money is no object, huge red flags would be going up in my head.

Exactly what I was going to say.

+1 EA for once.

Um.. EA wasn't responsible for this. It was the devs. Fuck EA.

But actually, this is a pretty cool idea. Still won't get me to buy this overpriced, average game, but cool idea nonetheless.

It's under their umbrella. Works both ways with me. Don't worry they are still several 1000 in the hole.
