A great article was published by PC Gamer two days ago. It discusses the current state of affairs for VR, and calls out some interesting observations:
"Maybe Valve ought to do some serious tracking with the Index 2, then ship it out for $299, too. Just let me know what details you want, Gabe."
799.00 plus an annual fee of 180 bucks to be rid of Facebook requirement.
I don't think so.
That gives a clue to the possible discount Facebook are putting on the Q2 and how much they value a Facebook account in monetary terms.
Assuming they're supplying business support at cost, at $180 per year and the purchase price includes 1 years support, I wonder if the cost of the headset is actually $799 - $180, putting it at the $620 mark or there abouts.
I'm also wondering if my Android TVs are in any way discounted because they require a Google account, or my iphone discounted because it requires an Apple account.
(I'm pretty sure I know the answer 😗)
