No idea why it's there, but I almost bought an Index this weekend.
Only thing that stopped me this weekend was that I couldn't choose between the Index (meh rez at144hz) and the PiMax 8kx (4k per eye at 75hz).
Since neither has both high resolution and high refresh, I didn't get anything. I know that either one will make me feel like I'm giving something up.
I currently have a 4k 120hz full chroma IPS display, 48 inch. Not VR immersive, but I don't need to compromise on clarity of fluidity of motion.
I mainly play flight sims, and I average 120+ fps at 4k on a single GPU.
With a second GPU, I could pull 120hz per eye.
As soon as someone makes a VR unit with both 4k and 120+hz, I'm buying.

I'll consider getting it when it hits the bargain bin and that's only if they do a historical tour for it. Love those things.

Anyone own this?
I've been reading online about Multiplayer, and it sounds like the game DOES NOT support Steam Friends and you cannot make a party to join online public servers. Instead, you have to create your own server (and thusly port forwarding), or join a public server amd try to invite them into it.
Is that the case still?

Yea just what we need, another Great Leap Forward, or equivalent of the the Russian Marxist revolution. Burn everything down and lynch anyone anonymously accused.

Hrm, Epic isn't making enough billions from Fortnite BR, to fund the Save the World mode? I was kinda interested in coop StW ... a few years ago now I guess, it'll probably be a hard sell to the coop crew to even bother trying it now. I'm sure Epic won't miss a couple sells from my group though, they will probably make hundreds of millions just from existing Fortnite players trying Save the World mode.

Why is the bar set so low? It seems to me that most of the big publishers have games with minimum specifications higher than "$600 Walmart laptop with integrated graphics."
As RedEye correctly attributed, hyperbole. The point is that the barrier to entry needs to be low enough for mass adoption. It needs to be plug and go.

gtx1060 6gig that the marketing says is "VR ready". I have my doubts it can push the fps necessary, especially for more recent games.

Until third-party sellers sell the Valve Index VR kit, I won't be allowed to have it. Gibraltar will never be on the list of countries Valve ship to. Even Google still doesn't allow us to have Merchant accounts on their Play Store. We're like in the top 5 GDP per capita in the world.

Oh no. That's certainly next on the chopping block. There isn't anything the moonbats won't be coming after if anyone is offended in even the slightest amount. Big Brother is coming to be sure. Another year or two they'll be opening the "re-education" centers. Doubleplus good, comrade.

Since he is joining that... I guess we can put Mr. Hall in the category of "washed up", along with the likes of Richard Garriott, Warren Spector, D.W. Bradley, etc. etc.

Picked up Titanfalls 2 despite not really caring much about the original and barely playing it. The reviews claim for it to be one of the greatest FPS ever so I said, 10 bucks, why not? So far, pretty good. The bullet impact, weight of the guns, and sound effects are real good. Level design has been pretty good so far but I can't help but feel it's too static. There are like no environmental interactions or physics whatsoever. Still, it's got my attention so far so we'll see how it goes.
