Jack Ma's Aliexpress is a joke of a retail site... he's one of the richest billionaires now but still keeps their stores website running like crap, full of scammers, and doesn't put a cent into updating them or have any interest in improving the marketplace.

$120 for the deluxe version of the game and premium.

I guess you need to rob a bank to be able to play Battlefield now.

in Canada game prices went up to $74.99 now, so it would be $150 + 13% tax here for everything.

highway robbery!

90Hz is nice! definitely better than the 60Hz, although 120/144Hz is more ideal for real-life motion. and two 1080p screens instead of one 1080p or 1440p screen split in two like in the Oculus would cetainly be better, because more pixels. just hope Oculus, HTC, Razer, SamsungVR, and these other VR headsets will be compatible with all the games so it will be easier to make a choice. i think even AMD has some kind of VR solution in their roadmap as well.

The two screens are 1200px by 1080px each, so not that different from the OR DK2 resolution of 960 by 1080 per eye. Oculus claims their consumer version will be better than 1080P so if we assume they will use a single 1440P screen, that would be 1280 by 1440 per eye at 90Hz, which would be superior.

My main concern with two separate screens would be them getting out of sync if you dropped your headset or something.

oh, ideally 4K would be the best but it's too costly for now... i'm sure someone will make it happen soon though, or maybe even 5K!

Another TV strapped to your face and using a clumsy controller is not VR. When people start jacking in a la Snowcrash/Neuromancer, etc. then it'll be VR.

Whatevs, this pales compared to the announcement of Half-Life 3 this coming Tuesday at GDC.

The third day, or the third month at three PM Valve will be announcing it finally. So it is written! So shall it be!

HTC has three letters, so HALF LIFE 3!

C is the third letter of the alphabet in the third position in "HTC", so HALF LIFE 3!!

Steam VR. 5 letters - 2 letters = 3, so HALF LIFE 3!!!

There are three signs above pointing to Half Life 3, so HALF LIFE 3!!!

You missed the best one,

Half-Life Three Confirmed

it's coming!!

It was a gutsy move, and I applaud it, we are talking about a horror movie after all. "Feel good" hollywood subplots have no business being in a good horror film anyway. (Or in anything else for that matter)

Just to clarify, I don't think that the Newt subplot was weak in Aliens. It wasn't, it was an essential part of the film. However in Alien3, killing off both Newt and Hicks, also served the plot of the film greatly. First of all it was unexpected, and secondly it once again cast Ripley as an outsider even more isolated and vulnerable than before.

i'm not even sure anyone cares about the Aliens franchise anymore... it's been so long.

That will largely depend on available games for the system. Exclusives sell consoles not hardware specs!

Man, The Order is getting beaten the hell and back. Sad. It looked to have a lot of potential, but just didn't deliver.

Maybe I'll grab it at $30...

Alien Isolation and Dying Light got rated poorly but both are very good games imo. i don't even pay attention to reviews anymore lately.
