Why it doesn't matter? Spoken like someone with zero responsibilities or bills.
Spoken like someone who either has no clue how to budget or is making minimum wage. I make about double the minimum wage. I have a house in a super low-crime neighborhood, have an alright car, and due to planning ahead, can afford to pre-order a Vive. It didn't require any sacrifices or changes to my spending habits. I plan for a $1000 expense every 6 months. This is one of those (assuming I'm buying a couple titles specifically for it within the first month, using up the full thousand).
If you aren't very interested in the tech, then ok. But you clearly ARE, and saying you can't afford it, so you're angry. If you make less than I do, I can see how that's possible. If you make as much or more than I do, which is reasonably likely, then you made choices somewhere that keep you from having any play money. Did you buy a super nice car? Too bad, you don't get a VR headset...but enjoy the car! Did you have a kid or kids? Well you only exist to fund their lives now, and you made that choice.
Honestly the only excuse that isn't directly your own damn fault is if you're injured or have a lifelong disease that costs you everything you make. I'm so fucking tired of hearing this same line from you, Cutter. Stop blaming someone else for what you've done to yourself.
