Gotcha. Showed it to a friend at the Vr Hub. Same as me on the first play, he played happily to the arcade, and took a break after trying out some of the games. It's a pretty natural break point, it seems. Both would prefer freedom of yaw in the control options.
The tutorial bit with the approach to the console feels just a tad long I guess, otherwise things have been working fine. Only reached a stage or two forward after the arcade so far.
