dof is degrees of freedom with motion.  

Technically the numbers can refer to any axes.  
In the VR space, the general measurement is that 3 refers to rotational tracking and 6 is rotational + positional tracking.  

Most headsets support 6dof.  Oculus Go and GearVR were the notable examples that didn't.

It's notable in this case because the headset is so small, last year's version only support rotational tracking.  
you know what...  i was thing FoV not DoF and i was all like "wtf does 6 mean".    your answer make much more sense now that i realize i'm an idiot.

how does that compare because "6" doesn't mean anything to me.

So PS5 pretty much matches PS4 LTD in the US. Perhaps Japan + other new markets can make up for the decline in Europe and PS5 still shipped close to 4.5M.

For xbox is reverse, XB1 was matched in Europe but its down a fair bit in the US, new markets might make up for that as well but depends on how big the gap in the US is. Seems to be close to matching XB1's 3M though.

Pretty much as you were compared to last gen after the first holiday then.

So this means PS5 can be estimate about 1.95M LTD. XBS harder to say, but definitely a fair bit below 1.8M which was what XB1 had.

Gaming Community / Re: Games with complex health ...
Last post by kitler53 - Today at 02:28 PM
i like them on the enemies.  like in horizon where you could target specific weapon systems to disable certain attacks.   in a lot of ways i'd say that "complex health system" is most of why horizon is soo fun to play.

i don't think i've ever played a game where the complex health was on the player.  it sounds like the antithesis to fun gameplay to me.  if as the battle raged on i lost abilities or the abilities i had changed:
1. the combat would be very complex.   like learning a fighter like tekken.  i hate those games because of how complex they are.  i can only remember 5 moves tops.
2. presumably i would become weaker as the battle raged on.  seems unfun.

it's all in how to make them is suppose.
