 I hope not, I ordered on July 14th and this is  what my order # looks like 60106678

 Open dialog is awesome that way, I wish our current situation in the world would be addressed the same way, but it's not looking hopeful. I also think Mobile with options like the Link will influence people to buy into PCVR that ot…
  • I was thinking I'll wait for the 30's now.  The article said it had a 30% increase over 2080.  Sorry Red, the article was on Facebook, once I closed it, it got lost in the abyss that is facebook.  I should have bookmarked it.  If I find another arti…
  • I don't think Quest will kill PC VR, but I do think it will influence developers.  I know if I were to develop a game, I'd chose quest over PC because it would be less work and offers a better ROI just because of the the size alone.  PC would get a …
  • This pandemic is forcing the closure of many long term successful local businesses in my home town.  I imagine the VR arcade landscape is getting hit really hard.  Not only do I think VR Arcades might shrink to almost nothing, but the same will happ…

 No he can't, your best bet would be going to Roblox themselves and asking.  Maybe they have a Discord, most developers do these days.
  • I would hope that they have safeguards in place to protect devs from fools that want to "borrow" their games after a refund so they can show their friends how cool it is. It's a pathetic question to ask if you can avoid any fees because a …

 I didn't mean to suggest you did, I was speaking in general.  All I'm saying is the game will get updated and be great again and there will be some of those that were quick to neg that will NOT go back and correct it to positive.

 He also has a team he has to pay.  Imagine making this awesome game and your reward is the salary of a hamburger stand cook once you pay everyone.

 I believe there will absolutely be a subset of those users that never would have considered PCVR and now that they got a taste of the Quest and see what PC has to offer, it may peak their interest.  Perhaps they'll even explore oth…

 I realize this and this is why I don't think Steam or Oculus should refund anyone that wants their money back if it's outside the normal parameters.  I've had steam since they started it after the success of their first HL game.  I…

 What concerns me about this is the discrepency in the amount of reviews between Quest and Rift.  From a perspective of a company that wants to maximize profits, those numbers would suggest PCVR is not going to even pay the cost to …

 I think that's exactly what happened, Apparently they re-did the entire game on the new Unity engine.  It loads much faster and performs a hell of a lot better now.  I think you are absolutely right about taking shortcuts, that wer…

 It has the stink of an Exec on it for sure.  They alluded to the fact they had to meet a deadline.  I know what crunch time is like in that enviornment, the team was sleeping under their desks when they passed out coding.  They sai…

 Oh man that sucks.  I have the original touch that came out for the old rift from the first run.  I've punched walls and flung them across the room and they hardly got marks on them.  They're made of sturdy plastic.  It's a shame t…

 Absolutely.  That is my inent.  I would like to see if they ever come out with a headset with the half dome tech.

 Yes I understand of course.  I'm just saying, I'm from an older generation that grew up in a time when these type of forums were on Electronic Bulletin Board Systems, and this group would be called a SIG or special interest group.…

 Thank you  :)  I know most people know what I meant, but I also know how Zenbane hyperfocuses on what you say.  But I don't mind that, I actually like it.  His personality type reminds me of the users from the old BBS systems from …

 Perhaps I worded it poorly.  I meant Oculus does not have a hardware solution for me so I preordered the HP product. Feeling gross over steamvr seems a bit weird to me but it's all good.  I upgrade my PC for work and it happens to …

 Do they perform better standard?  I used to use AMD a while back but switched to Intel because my software packages like 3dsmax and Solidworks worked better on Intel, that may be driver related I don't know.  But Intel ran that typ…

 I guess I'll see.  I have no problems with Steam I buy almost all my games there and if it plays the same as the Oculus I'll be happy.  My concern is that it's actually a WMR headset and I've heard nothing but problems from the peo…

 They've got no response to the HP Reverb G2, I'd hope they would have a competitive HMD to that but they won't, they're going middle ground VR and keeping it cheap, that's what will get to their goal to bring VR mainstream.  The or…
  • I always thought Home was a huge waste of time, I don't know how it wouldn't end up empty, there's nothing to do there, it's boring, and going to hang out with your virtual friends in their home seems weird and pointless.  Oculus forcing you to ha…
  • I preordered mine too.  Internet tax really sucks, I got spoiled shopping online the last 25 years.... (Quote) 
 I'm not waiting around for them anylonger, I bought this HP headset.  That being said, I think brand loyalty is stupid, so if Oc…
  • I'm not going to be loyal to a brand, I'm buying what I think is the best.  I still love my CV1, I don't see a need to upgrade to Rift S, not enough differences.  I'm not really interested in the current Quest, maybe a future version though.  I pre-…

 Of course the tech had to come first, otherwise all development for the games would be in theory.  All devices that use media had to be developed prior to the content for the non exitent device, what kind of nonsense are we talking…

 I like the indy games, I'm not looking forward to the market being flooded with games in the hundred million dollar budget range that will cost $60 and then have in game purchases.  I'll buy the ones that look good though.  I will …

 Anything could use a killer app to make it sell. There just are no killer apps really that I can think of.  For me Onward and DCS World are killer apps.  If my headset broke today, I'd replace it so I could continue enjoying those …

 Nevermind, perhaps I should read the entire thread first THEN respond.  I guess it isn't all about testing, it's about money.  So the suggestion to use those packages to downgrade the performance of the high performance card to get…

 So did I, I was under the impression that you were suggesting to him he should use that software to downgrade the performance abilities of his high performance 1080ti card and be happy that it works.  Now I understand it's for test…
