It converts USB to fibre optic and then back for minimal latency, is USB 3.2 rather than the 3.0/3.1 cables out there and is significantly lighter, longer and more resilient to bending than other VR capable cables on the market.

Oh yeah, I know its not just a normal cable, but even so, it's more than a replacement touch controller.

It is extremely justified with the length and it's fiber optic. Doesn't come with an adapter for USB A though so I'm better off using a cheap one as any benefit will be lost anyway.

Currently using this 8.99 amazon basics beast: https://smile.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B ... UTF8&psc=1

I see Valve have added a notify me button for the Index.

There seem to be a few VR games in the steam sale as well. Nice.

Yeah I've already subbed to the Notify Me feature. Hopefully doesn't take too long to come back in stock

And yet I still can't order an Index due to stock shortages
