    Time does seem to have lost their touch with the cover photos. How did they get that pose out of Palmer in the first place? Did the photographer ask him to hop?

    Edit: Also, are we allowed to shop this? I know sometimes they don't like us posting certain photos of Palmer, but this one is on Time Magazine. Eh, what the hell.

    It almost seems intentional.....almost. But as George Broussard said, "...this is the worst PR that virtual reality could ever have." :|

    Please gather the best and create even better photoshops, and post them here. :)

    PS. I don't undertand the drama. Palmer in a silly pose. The world will end.

    Really?

    Not an Oculus hater, but not a fan anymore.
    Still lots of respect for the team-Carmack, Abrash.
    Oculus is driven by big corporation principles now. That brings painful effects already, more to come in the future. This is not the Oculus I once cheered for.

    Cliff Blezinski has been gathering some good ones on his Twitter (https://twitter.com/therealcliffyb), and there are some other good ones on the gamespot page.

    Also, yeah, not a big deal really. It doesn't do anything to combat the concern that you look goofy when you are playing a game in VR, but people that are worried about looking cool when they're alone on their computer aren't likely to be early adopters anyway.

    There are a huge amount of commenters on gamespot that seem to be very self conscious about how they look to the outside world while playing computer games. The gamespot comments have tended to be some of the worst on the internet for years, but I don't think I live on the same planet as these people. Anyone that's going to be around me when I'm playing a PC game by myself is going to have to get used to my goofiness at some point, it's not something you do as a social thing unless you're online with a bunch of other people wearing headsets.

    That has to be intentional! It is too amazingly nerdy to not be :lol:

    It`s a lot less silly than the amazon drones. It`s a huge ad that reaches a lot of people and incide talks about VR.
    The method is questionable but it works.

    Awesome images :D

    Palmer is going to make the T-Rex trip :lol:
  • TwitchmonkeyTwitchmonkey Posts: 1,121
    Well, it seems Palmer's having a good time with it anyway

    https://www.facebook.com/palmer.luckey

    Pretty sure that's his official Facebook page. He posted on a Reddit thread about this, but he was just talking about waifus. Good to see him take it all in stride, and why not? It's not every day you get to become a meme, unless you're Palmer Luckey.

    Looks to me like Time edited out the chair he was sitting on.

    I think that cover does a great job (of selling the Magazine) :
    - On the one side, it shows how incomprehensively goofy VR may (be twisted to) appear from the outside.
    - On the other side, it reads "it's about to change the world".

    Short version : Time published on it's front cover, that Palmer Luckey is about to change the world... That's spot on !

    PS : More pics please ^^
