It looks strawberry floating amazing.

Index controllers look pretty much essential.


You had best get on it.

What's wrong with £40 for a full game?

I am a skin flint, oh and I am resisting pre-ordering it but know I will fail.


Edit: So, those who got a Valve index get the game for free. 8-) :lol: :capnscotty: :datass:

For a full game £40 is about what I'd expect/hope.

It's clear that the Knuckles controllers will give some additional fidelity to the fine hand movements, but I'm not worried that Rift or Vive will be too much different.

Check out some of our stuff!

True but £40 is my upper limit. I don't need to bother now as I will get it for free. I suppose spending 1k on hardware does have a benefit at times.

Just bought the index controllers. The game came free with it.

No regrets.

Can't buy the Index controllers. strawberry float Valve.
Seriously though, they better sort out international shipping for their hardware before this is released.

Do you mean they don't ship to where you are?

The index bundle is now top of the global best seller list on steam :datass:

GIMMICK! NOBODY WANTS VR! SAD!

It's as long as Half Life 2, Mike Laidlaw was indirectly involved, it's the biggest team they've ever had working on a game.

Hmm.

Oh strawberry float. Oh gooseberry fool. I'm hype.

And I'd only just managed to talk myself out of spending a fortune on a VR headset. :fp:

Funnily enough, more than the cost, it was the idea of having a Facebook product with a load of cameras all over the outside of it inside my home, that put me off the Quest. If there's another company out there that can produce a headset like the Quest, standalone, but also allowing tethered use, I'd consider biting again.

They don't even show up in the results when I search for them on Steam.

On this page: https://store.steampowered.com/valveindex
I'm greeted by tags for each item saying "Not Available In Your Country".

Maybe I can make use of a reshipper service?

My suspicion would be that we see the fall of Ravenholm for ourselves and it's gonna be terrifying.
