How sick of Pi's VR hype are you?

Lol 5 years? Let's say 50
Yeah I hope he didn't spend much time with that list. 4 isn't happening. 3 is overselling the "in some cases" part. 2 is also overselling it since that could include simple things we have today like hearing aids.

5 could maybe happen and 1 seems like something he'd know better than me.

4 is definitely happening!

Someone said we have 4 in the form of helicopters and he responded saying "I have a few helicopters, they aren't sufficient."

It's kinda funny though that the dream of flying cars was seemingly dying off and then drones came along. Now flying cars are right back around the corner  :)

Can't land on city streets, essentially useless  ;)

Also how freaking rich is he?!?

$730m was the last estimate.  
I find it a bit hard to believe he walked with that much, though.

Good things?
Mostly.  It has a meta of 79, but most of the lowest reviews say that the gameplay is great.
But some problems like long wait times for online matches hold the game back.

Firewall Zero Hour is a masterclass in accessible, immersive VR first-person shooting. Its sharp, intuitive tactical gameplay and well-designed maps make for intense 4v4 action that's a level above anything else available on PlayStation VR. However, it cannot be ignored that the progression slog and rapidly emptying lobbies make Firewall a difficult game to commit to.

Firewall can be an incredible experience - and easily the most exciting and immersive VR shooter that I've played. It's just a shame that there's not more co-op and single-player action, more competitive modes or shorter waits between the game's bite-sized matches.

Firewall Zero Hour is one of the most precise and tactical VR shooters out there. Too bad the systems surrounding it are so wanting.
Quote from: 60
There's no doubt that Firewall Zero Hour's tactical combat works well in virtual reality - in fact, the fledgling medium adds a lot to this FPS, allowing you to naturally gesture to teammates and intuitively check your corners in a way you couldn't on a standard display. But while there are some structural and technical issues that we have confidence First Contact Entertainment will be able to fix, it's the question marks over its community that make it a tough sell. It's a chicken-and-egg situation that's unfortunate for everyone involved, but it's something that the developer would have been aware of when it embarked on creating an online-only multiplayer shooter for an install base of a few million headsets. Good as the game may be, it's something you need to keep in mind as well.
Feels like high praise for the gameplay, considering the low scores.

Quest sounds cool. Is it worse than Rift in any significant way?

Worse: won't play PC games.  Battery powered
Unknown: tracking (better than Go by far, but not sure how it'll compare to Rift), battery life, not sure if connecting to PC might come in the future

Better: screen, no wires

Not sure what this could be talking about:

Seems like it'd be too big of a statement to be about astrobot.
