If they can get other publishers to go along for the ride and add to their selection of games then maybe, EA doesn't have a deep enough bench to warrant it on the PC.

Barring (again) the ridiculous idea that North Korea could invade the US, it really doesn't look half bad. I got kind of a Watch Dogs vibe from it, though this is just a straight up shooter, right?

Might be interesting.

That would actually be pretty cool....more Watchdogs than rails shooter.....that could be pretty deep.

This is a rails shooter, the gadget and hacking bit just look like lame mini-games.

Why would you need to put North Koreans as the bad guy in a future dystopian scenario, it's more likely to be an all out military police state imposed by the US Government on their own people.

HTC can't sell it at a loss, they don't have a "zuckerberg" sugar daddy like Rift does. I keep reading that HTC is teetering on financial ruin as their cell phone sales have dried up.

I don't even know what I'd want to see in a Half Life 3 to be honest. It's not like the story was super compelling so I feel like I really need to have an ending.

A game set 100% on Xen!

To me HL has always been more about the setting and less about the interaction with other characters. I remember for HL2 they had the early physics test they showed off and I thought it would have been chocked full of physics puzzles but that didn't seem to happen.

I think it would be more about modernizing the gameplay, allowing players to craft bizarre weapons and bombs while bringing the visuals up to photo realism that's possible today both with the environments and creatures. I really wouldn't mind another tripped out Xen experience, something more along the line of Avatar though.

What makes the vive better than rift?

Valve support.

They do have some cool features, their touch controllers look very nice and having that camera means you won't have to take off the headset to see things around you. Room space VR experience could make for some interesting games too.

I suspect it'll be more expensive than the Rift by quite a bit, the "lighthouse" sensors and the touch controllers. Neither HTC nor Oculus have the luxury of discounting the razor and recouping their loss by selling blades. Neither company is going to require royalties for developing games / content for it - as far as I know.

This bitch better be good. Star Citizen is gonna take ages, Elite: Dangerous is decent but not exactly a space combat sim so it is high time that at least one studio delivers some awesome sauce space action.

This game makes Elite Dangerous look like a hard core DCS flight simulator.

This is nothing more than Call of Duty in space, you don't even get free look with the VR headset but instead it's used to track your lock-on weapon systems. That's not to say that the game may be fun but if you're expecting "Freespace" type game ... not exactly.

I've heard that Rift is doing exclusives, maybe they'll just be timed exclusives.

Wireless xbox controllers are fine, the main problem is if you let the controller time out from inactivity then you have to exit the game and start it back up again to re-detect the controller - or at least that has been my experience with the xbox360 wireless.

They need to pay for those "free" rifts to the original backers somehow.

According to shit they said on Twitter they aren't even profiting on the hardware at $599. They must have some serious manufacturing cost issues going.

Will be interesting to see how much they are eating when the financials come out.

All those DK2 units are flooding onto Ebay, the original backers are the ones who quite literally get to eat their cake and keep it too.

At $599 and they're not turning a profit at all, I would really like to see a breakdown on the manufacturing cost. Perhaps they're figuring in the software development cost plus there's going to be a loss of profit for warranty repair which I'm guessing is standard one year?

The HTC Vive is looking much better. The new version now has a camera on the front and allows you to see the environment around you, which is the killer feature. The updated controllers look dramatically better as well.

I really hope the HTC Vive comes in at a sensible price, as I'd much rather support HTC than a company like Facebook.

Didn't HTC say that they'll be released initially in limited quantity, I would expect prices to be $1000 for the full-meal-deal.
