Some nice bits in here. Such an important game for VR regardless of which headset it is played on.

With such a well-publicised game, the messenger is unimportant!

Of course - just fun to see that you had the same thought and got here a few minutes before me, lol

Thanks for sharing - was watching this.
The most interesting was their comparison on different headsets. Fascinated that it worked so well on Quest Link (Franken-Quest), another selling point. Again, great job by the devs.

I just jumped to the conclusion at about 31:30. Seems like Valve's main agenda is not to push Index, but to push VR as a whole - and that's quite a generous move.

Great to see such extensive testing and commentary on so many different headsets. I regularly see a lot of people on Reddit who have swallowed the anti-Oculus kool-aid and just assume Rift CV1 tracking is garbage, or inside-out doesn't work well, or Quest Link looks like crap, etc. It's nice to see an even-handed comparison, and the game looks excellent too.
