    Oh sweet - thanks for the info.

    I've been F5'ing waiting for the Rift S to drop. The compression that the Quest will use when in link mode doesn't interest me. Pixel density in the Rift S is greater than the Quest as well and I'd prefer that than higher contrast colours of the OLED.

    The half life alyx announcement has put the Index in high demand, will probably be a few weeks until in stock again

    Can already play it on a wired headset, not interested in it - not into zombie things though.

    Boneworks was the most wishlisted VR game on Steam before they announced Half Life, so hope it can live up to the hype.

    Boneworks is going to be great

    Untethered to tethered is liked colour tv was to black and white tv. The cable is always a reminder of reality and a restriction. Tethered is ok for sims and racing games. And it's going to get better and better as things like multiplayer hall scale vr start getting supported.

    I have an overhead VR cable management system in my play space that keeps it out of the way, so not that big a deal to me. I'd rather leverage the power of my PC for most games. I use my wireless headset mostly for media in bed, it is what those mobile chipsets are best for.

    I sometimes play RTS games on it via Virtual Desktop in bed though.

    Rift S is currently on special for $600nzd.

    Looking at Steam, how do I find which games support both the Rift S and can be played without having to flail arms around and stand up? The Rift S controllers have a bunch of buttons etc on them - I'm trying to find which games support just sitting down and using those buttons like a normal game controller.

    This tends to be easier on playstation, as a lot of VR games support sitting and using the ps4 controller. But trying to see if those works with a Rift S on PC is more of a challenge.

    There's a filter for seated VR experiences: https://store.steampowered.com/searc...upport=402,301

    What about the controller?
    Looks like I have to go through each game one by one to see if it supports it.

    Add a filter for gamepad (to the filtered seated list)?

    eBay. New but from a regular seller so it was probably an unused gift or something. I did something wild on eBay I'd never done before. I placed a bid. I've never bothered before and just skipped bid only items on eBay.

    Turns out pretty much everyone else does the same.

    Turns out it doesn't work on Linux so I had to dual boot Windows again

    I couldn't believe how poor quality the 360 video demos were on WMR. They were things like Red Bull skydiving and whatever and the resolution was like 30x10 pixels. Although even newer 360 videos are pretty disappointing, sifted through YouTube. VR is definitely not a good format for videos.

    It's to do with the bitrate requirements for 360 video - the VR 180 stuff is way better.

    Also like most tech, porn leads the way

    Thanks - unfortunately looks like it's only racing games that meet the filter. I'm better off just using psvr then since lots of games allow controller use there

    Ahhh ummm Czechoslovakia seems to be leading the way in 5k 180 3D SBS VR ... ahem... videos...

    You mean Czechia, Czechoslovakia was dissolved nearly 27 years ago

    That part of the world also seems to be leading in the uptake of VR cams...

    Seriously though, if the youtube VR footage was of the same technical spec people would be a lot more excited about VR

    Highly recommend Path of the Warrior.

    Bone works seems to be doing well, I'd pick that game up if i Had a VR headset.
