In all fairness Samsung probably owns the manufacturing for it. Even if they don't they're dealing in the millions of units which is a price break you won't see with any VR stuff regardless of who owns them because we're talking about 1000s of units here.

I'd wager that, if you polled most of your friends, less than 5% of their time using their personal (not work) laptops is outside of their homes.

hoping it at least costs less than the ridiculously overpriced Oculus
The Rift is already being sold at a loss. There's no way HTC has been able to cut down manufacturing costs for a similar product so drastically that they can sell it even cheaper. I'd be surprised if it was under $550.

I was watching a video on Youtube that talked about HL3 and Valve and because Gabe Newell is rolling in dough from skimming off the top selling other people's content, why take the risk on trying to make HL3 and risking it flopping? They will just string us along counting their money from Steam until everyone that actually wanted HL3 dies off.
No, it's called be a fat lazy fucking asshole who has no drive other than making profit from other people's hard work. The guy has become the next George Lucas, someone who has lost his desire and will to continue on. If he can't find the time or will or desire to complete the Half Life story, then sell it off or have someone else finish it.
But please do not defend this asshole as someone who never intended to finish the HL3 story. That is utter bulshit to say they never intended to make HL3.

I WANT an arcade-y flight sim like Valkyrie. That's what Freespace 2 was.
You guys are really bitchy about space games you'll never play.
I mean, if there were a campaign like freespace 2 that would be a lot more interesting. As far as I know this is pvp only.
"Single player" is the wrong term. I'd say it's an offline new-player experience. A lot of games that are predominately online -- and Blizzard especially has a very good way of easing people in -- have players against AI instead of getting chucked into live PvP. I want people to have the best possible introduction to the game and the universe. Some people have talked about the single player because that's what brings you into the fiction and the controls so that you're ready for multiplayer.

The VR look seems to control the direction your ship is heading.
yeah, scratched this one off my list as well.

The U.S. has been spying on its citizens since the 50's. It's nothing new and for 99.99999% of the population, it has no impact on their life whatsoever. Opponents of surveillance believe that governments are inherently corrupt and that they will inevitably use any information they gather to either exploit or persecute you. I don't believe that to be true. Totalitarian governments use surveillance to help suppress opposition but they'd be suppressing opposition even if surveillance didn't exist.
Surveillance is inherently neutral. It doesn't turn a democratic nation into a totalitarian one. If it did, the U.S. would have become a totalitarian nation a long time ago (and please don't claim that the U.S. is already totalitarian; if that were true, you'd already be dead or in prison because of your publicly-expressed beliefs).
Out of all the survey respondents under 30, only a third supported the idea of warrantless Internet surveillance. In contrast, two-thirds of Americans over the age of 30 supported the idea.

I built a machine that's designed to run the goddamn thing, with a pair of 970s (Nvidia VR drivers supposedly already divides workload for each eye to each card).

They should have the game set in the Ubisoft HQ building so we can stab the bastards that put this shit out every year.
Why do you care? If it's not your thing, then you aren't buying it, and it shouldn't really affect you.
Agreed. Some people suffer from chronic bitching.
