Yeah not much more news. I did sign up for their release announcement which I hasn't come yet. So no real reviews. At the end of the day though, I'd much rather wait to see how it actually runs in DCS though. And the timing of that 50% frame rate improvement will probably be the critical "software side" update that needs to happen first.

I think we will need Sweviver more than ever in the next few weeks, he uses all my favourite sims and always goes into great detail. Glad he's back in the game.

Indeed. However as far as I am concerned, both the Valve and the Vive Cosmos are out of the window for now.
I reckon both headsets will be in the £600+ price bracket, roughly in line with the Pimax 5K. The cost of the headset plus the cost of the lighthouses is a step too far for me.

To buy the Vive Pro full kit with lighthouses in the package right now is well over £1200 and I don't see the prices for the new steam headsets being much different.

I can get a £500 spend past the missus, but I think it will take a lot of work to get £800 -850 past her. £1200 and I would be eating out of the dustbin for weeks.

I just don't think mechanical ipd adjustment and better tracking in a roomscale environment is worth double the price.

My ipd is in the ideal range and the tracking of the wmr sets will be fine for DCS.

Wish more news was forthcoming though.

I hate the secretive nature of these "reveals' that we seem to have to endure with any new product these days. I think their marketing people sold used cars on ridiculous finance deals in a previous life.

As I said before, HTC Focus is something equivalents Oculus Quest and it is double the price, 800$ vs 400$. So I don't see why will be different with HTC Cosmos compared to HP Reverb. Acer Ojo D I'm not sure but from some announcement will be significantly expensive than 600$ what will be the price for consumer Reverb.

For individual usage, I don't see much difference worth for such a big difference in price. So far Reverb is my favorite and best buy option for such new HMD.

It feels like there is even an NDA regarding when the reviews embargo is going to be lifted. If the Reverb is coming in the next week or so, you would imagine that those in the loop will already have theirs on the bench for testing and writing the reviews. Usually with tech we at least get a date for when the embargo lifts, but for some reason, gen 1.5 VR is total radio silence.

what does the silence mean?

that’s it’s better than what the leaks say?

I agree with John Hargreaves. I just finished googling for further news and nothing. The cut off point was just about a month ago and the cut was as sharp as a razor. I believe Tested was the last one and had a little more detail.

Absolutely nothing since, other than the types of speculative YouTube videos that look through content released through other providers and recompile it as their own.

It's as if, as John considers, that the media and content providers are under an NDA.

What has probably happened over the last few weeks, is that the media types have consented to an NDA, HP have sent them headsets for review. Headsets duly reviewed and videos made, ready to be uploaded on the date that HP specified.

I expect late this week to early next week will bring more news. We will probably have more to talk about this weekend.
