    It's a 1.5 hour keynote and following it is a VR talk, so I'm guessing any oculus stuff will be at the end.

    Oh God it must be awful to work there.  Do they have to whoop every time they see a colleague?

    "We can block anybody who disagrees with us"

    "whoop, whoop"

    Sorry for being miserable, I'll be back in an hour.

    I have a close friend who works there, and I hear nothing but great things. But you have to remember that this is a room of "geeks" and "nerds" so this is quite common. Have you ever been to a tech or gaming event? The cheesy shouts happen all the time. Go to a Magic: The Gathering event to see some real frightening whoops.

    But uh yeah, stop hating people for being happy lol

    Anywho,

    30 minutes in and I love the new Facebook web page overhaul that is coming. They are completely re-writing Facebook from scratch.

    Damn it, I just started listening to some chap hop and I see an oculus logo. Guess I need to unmute again.

    Ordered the Quest - you beauty!

    Now the wait...
  • kojackkojack Posts: 6,940 Volunteer Moderator
    $649au for quest and rift-s, $799au for quest 128gb.

    Considering I only use my Go for dev at work and I've never filled it's 32GB, I might go for the 64GB quest.

    So if they are giving a quest to F* attendees .. I am sure they will be giving one to the mods too right? RIGHT?

    Sounds like it would be fair to give Quest to Oculus Start members too  ;)

    BTW guys, do we get any free games with Rift S? On the back of the box it shows Defector, Stormland, Asgard's Wrath etc, do they come with Rift S? Is there any confirmation of this yet? There was like 5 games on the back of the box?
