You're clueless. This is a massive effort. They have to stand up tons of new infrastructure to handle the influx of thousands of players downloading petabytes of data. They have to build out a bulletproof system that will allow players to temporarily create accounts that can access this functionality, but expire a few days later. It has to be designed, built, tested, & deployed. It must be secure (because free accounts), etc. It's a crapton of work to set these up. And that just delays the game.

And Chris himself has said, they have all the money they need to finish the game.

Isn't this backwards though? Their infrastructure on GCS scales dynamically depending on load. Free access for a limited amount of time is a very low-cost way to test your content.

Lot of strawmen in that article. It's like Lego these days. If he finds it tough now he wouldn't have liked it way back when.

Ew. It's using a single 1080p screen. Screen door ahoy. When the Rift was on a single 1080p screen it wasn't too enjoyable.

But we did always expect the PSVR to be the budget product.

They'll have a diffuser no doubt. This is great for mainstream VR though, it needed a credible low cost option for Gen 1.

It's usually people who haven't actually worn one.
I find my DK2 pretty comfortable, even when I used it for hours on end when I first got it.

And you know those earlier models are going to be bulkier than what the future has in store.

There also seem to be sedentary types who can't stand the idea of physical exertion.

I'm expecting Valve to up it's game with SteamOS in response. Especially now that we have Vulkan. I'd be very happy to ditch Windows for gaming. Certainly not going to Windows 10 anytime soon.

Looks like they're looking to copy the Steam box, which would be a smart move. The base Xbox certainly doesn't have a hope to compete in the VR world, and this way they get to use all the headsets available on Windows on the new Xbox.

Looks great, but will this be another game that's mostly about visuals and lacking in the gameplay department? All the gameplay videos I've seen looks like you just spam your weapon trigger until a mob goes down. In fact, I've seen videos where you could be point blank and you still need to shoot several times in the head before they go down. I'm not a big fan of that kind of lazy gameplay.

The beta was okay but got old over a weekend, the gameplay just doesn't seem to be that deep?

VR/AR is nothing like 3D vision. It'll be ubiquitous, the cost will come down and the form factor will shrink. Desktops, laptops, phones and tablets will all disappear. This is Netflix vs Blockbuster.

Same as Watchdogs etc. The current gen is so technically weak that Console vendors are incentiving keeping the PC version the same as on their platforms. They don't want their userbase jumping ship to a better platform so try to hide that fact.

Example

It really needs about six more months of refinement but that's not going to happen.

It looks like a survival game but it's really more like Borderlands.

This is the thing right here. It looks like a tactical shooter which has all sort of implications on gameplay, implications such as one shot kills and semi-believeable AI. This is how people expect tactical shooters to play. In reality it plays like Borderlands with waves of AIs coming at you. The gameplay 'jolts' you out of the environment whenever one of these gameplay elements manifests. For instance bullet sponges and AI waves is fine if you're fighting a hoard of alient insects, but when your fighting a group of human vigilantes or mercenaries your brain throws a fit when it sees this behaviour at it's so out of character.
