Right out of the Star Citizen playbook.

- A delay announced? check
- A video to jazz people up? check
- Advertise some sort of merchandise? check

We remain neutral of politics, so I have nothing to say about it.

Even if you were under a dictatorship with religious persecution? What if your involvement in politics could put an end to such a dictatorship?

Review the history of JWs living in Nazi Germany. What they did then, applies today.

Okay the nonsense surrounding this game has reached epic levels but c'mon... Mark Hamill kinda looks badass. It's okay, you can admit it.

That's why the project is still receiving funds. The marketing team is brilliant.

within 5 minutes hard lock up and computer reboots or bluescreen and reboots.

Me and countless others are still waiting on a patch so we can play longer then 5 minutes, they don't seem to be in a hurry to fix that though, they got our money.


Activision: Dude! Destiny 2 has outsold Destiny and is hailed as the “biggest new video game IP launch in history."

As usual some rando Blue's poster has everything figured out better than the execs, managers, business analysts, engineers, developers, the entire businesses set up to make money and develop the technology. You tell em.

If you end up being right tout your victory whenever, wherever, and to whatever degree that it applies and if you end up being wrong... well it simply hasn't happened yet, just wait!

You didn't even bother to read the article I posted, did you? It very clearly demonstrates the state of VR today.

I am not going to "tout my victory" if VR dies or hibernate (I don't want VR to do that). However, I am a pragmatist. IOW, I won't back down from saying what you know is common knowledge. Technology has NEVER evolved into the mainstream without killer apps, and so far VR has not produced any. There's NO driver to get the masses to upgrade their machines and/or buy the hardware. Because of this VR remains a self-defeating pipedream for the moment.

I'm addicted to Horizon Zero Dawn. I have no words to describe how amazing it is. Concurrently, I feel more comfortable with a PS4 controller; never thought I'd see that. Plus the PS4 has so many exclusive past, present, and future. Overall the PS4 PRO is great. If you had any inkling to buy one, get it. It's worth it, especially if you have a 4K screen. Thumbsup

Have any of Rockstar's money suits bothered to look at the stats for VR?

HTC Vive 0.10% (-0.02%)
Oculus Rift 0.09% (-0.02%)
Oculus Rift DK 20.00% (-0.01%)
Oculus Rift DK 10.00% (0.00%)

Why are they releasing a game for a dead technology or at least a tech with no interest? The only possible thing I can come up with is HTC and Valve are paying Rockstar to make LA Noire into a VR game for Vive as a way to boost sales.

I doubt it, if you cared to frequent VR spaces, you can see things are healthy enough, growing and those coming in are blown away. But whatever, you just want to close the door.
Don't you know that new tech is supposed to already be at 100% adoption with Triple A games on day 1. kx should stick to star citizen threads.

Is that how your mind works? I DID NOT post that or any hint of it.
right
What you post and what you think you post are diametric opposites.

In your quest to prove me wrong, I will simply let a real video game professional speak about VR:

"I was very excited when I first played with the Oculus DK2 — the technology was limited, but you could already see what the ambition was. The hardware has increased iteratively; but you need an incredible amount of horsepower and very well optimised low-latency engine to drive VR. Neither Unreal nor Unity are particularly well optimised… The big players who have the tech that could make a difference don’t see the demographics on VR yet, and the people won’t buy it without the killer apps." (https://techcrunch.com/2017/08/26/this-vr-cycle-is-dead/)

Note the use of killer app in final sentence. That's the only thing that will drive VR tech. Everything hinges on that.

HTC Vive 0.10% (-0.02%)
Oculus Rift 0.09% (-0.02%)
Oculus Rift DK 20.00% (-0.01%)
Oculus Rift DK 10.00% (0.00%)

Those are sad, indefensible numbers. They cannot sustain VR profitability and no developer is going spend tens of millions to develop a game that only a small percentage of gamers can play. That's not good business cents.

My one chance to play KB/M on PS4 evaporated when the only authorized PS4 KB/M accessory did not work out of the box after an hour trying to set it up. Worse, HORI never responded to my repeated inquiries to assist me (and they still haven't). So I gave up and decided to continue playing with a controller (maybe that was Sony's intention all along?).

The only saving grace has been Horizon Zero Dawn. Not only is the game amazing on so many levels, but it is an excellent game for controller training. HDZ ease me into the controls pretty smoothly and repeats several times what I need to press. I like the on-demand difficulty switch. During particularly nasty boss fights it is nice to change the difficulty from Normal to Story (Carebear mode) on the fly.
