How sick of Pi's VR hype are you?

No actual data, but it seems to always run cool except for on planets.
It just scares me when the cards get that hot. 163F seems pretty hot for any electronic device.

PlayStation VR to release in autumn, says GameStop CEO - VideoGamer.com

I'm going to prepare my "Told you so!" face.
That's okay with me. It gives me time. After buying OR I cant turn around and drop another 300 or more. Still might be a Christmas or next tax season buy for me thought.

The one for 3g's is a sli 980 rig. You could build if for a lot cheaper. Sticker prices? More like sucker prices.

not everyone likes to build a pc.

it's like saying lunch out cost $10 for $5 worth of pasta makes me a sucker.  well fudge,.. i didn't have to cook or clean or bring my lunch to work.  that's worth a lot to me.  building a pc is a ton of work.  i'd rather pay the extra couple hundred bucks than loose a weekend to setting up a pc.

HTC to announce Vive price at Mobile World Congress - NeoGAF

 Article in Japanese so someone might be able to provide better translation
 Seems HTC will announce the Vive price at MWC (22nd to 25th), then open up pre order online at their digital shop (29th).
 Japan confirmed as one of the countries where the product will launch first
 I think they have also acknowledged that high price will be an issue on install base penetration, and they said they have tried to revise the price tag so that the price gap with other VR hmds wont be too big.
