  • So excited that rockstar wants to make gra6 vr

  • I had no idea there were so many games ready for the launch and in the lineup! I was expecting a typical console launch of a few games but WOW! I’m seriously contemplating going to pick one up, but being honest with myself, I just don’t have time to game like I used to. I still haven’t finished Uncharted 4 (hell, and I’ve barely started Black Flag). Maybe I’ll wait til Black Friday… hmmm.

  • Mine just came last night. Having never experienced VR before, I must say that I am truly impressed by how immersive this technology is. Demo disk was a great idea. I’ll be picking up EVE: Valkarie soon for myself and Drive club for my wife who loves driving games. Idea for future games: consider a remake of Colony Wars please!

  • a VERY proud DAY ONE buyer here.. It’s such an amazing piece of machinery.
