    Not a bad price compared to what Microsoft and Sony charge for their online services per year.

    I'm still not convinced that the new VR hardware really works.

    Just to ask, does anyone here own the PSVR or an Oculus? Do you like them and like the game experiences?

    I don't own a VR headset, but so far I haven't seen any must play games for the platforms. It all looks like tech demos still.

    Pretty much. The only killer app for the platform is RE7 and... its not required. That fad will be over soon enough.

    I do have the ps4 vr and the ones I do enjoy that feel like full games are Eve Valkyrie which always for that . there a version supposedly for fallout. it's true most games so far are indeed tech demo's .

    But so the upcoming one's may change alot of peoples minds I know that can do resident evil 7 with it as well. there supposed to serious sam VR game and there's the aliens game being redone coming for that too .


    here's an eample of this that's inthe Resident 7 thread

    Got a lets play

    this thing won't make any headway as long as certain developer act scared . I know both the medical community around the world and now the law system which I found NBC news on Sundays are using VR these day in both med care and reproducing the crime scenes for courts to use.

    Alot of people in the game side some devs and some gamer's keep saying it's all fad.

    But in reality it's not. This is really being pushed as thing. that alot of people really want to happen. science community and farther then this.

    it more possible then the holo deck or danger room right now mostly due to expense's how the techs used too. this is a possible thing that shouldn't written off. This ain't no fad.

    For sure. Unless a slew of must play full games come out on VR I don't see it lasting. It's way too expensive and IMO not the most ideal way to play any game. I can't believe the Playstation VR headset costs more than a console. That's madness.

    lol well any ways the only way this thing will truly work is if they use the tech with games and by that I mean full on games at that. and the other is to make it Affordable. the latter is what has too many people freaking out and wring off right now. every other place of work from law Enforcement which is the latest and science community is going fully into it now as a thing for use .

    But I've been saying this from the start in other place's like operation rain area's and other places too.



    we're getting this from some part's of the games industry. but the whole industry has do it as thing . they have to make it affordable . We'll see what happen's I guess.

    VR, I have no time for. But apparently it is still making billions of dollars over the next few years. If so, they won't be able to ignore it.

    so, I just read online that the Switch won't have a Web Browser - though it could be added down the road.

    I'm a bit disappointed by that, as I heard the Wii U actually had a pretty good web browser. :(

    The 3DS had a web browser. I'd say that'll be like netflix. We'll get it a bit later.

    So this thing is running on pretty much the same chip as the NVidia Shield. It's not a bad chip, it actually runs Borderlands 2 and Pre-Sequel and other somewhat recent games well. It's just not an Xbox One.

    Or maybe it's like Nintendo is making a different sort of console. Does the industry need another black box to sit under the same TV with the same specs as the competitors? No. The industry needs different.

    Nailed it. Not to mention contemporary consoles are glorified midrange PC's. The Switch appears to be embracing the benefits of being a console.

    It's a genuine hybrid. You're not taking something with the tech of a PS4 or Xbox One on the go, at least not in a convenient way. There are places to go to play games with the most power and best specs. Nintendo is just an alternative way to play different sorts of games. They're making some mistakes with the Switch, no doubt, but I don't know that power is one of them.
