Polygon's interview with Luckey on price change

Quote
Oculus began to experiment with what was possible, and became much more ambitious with what could be done in a consumer virtual reality headset. "What came out of that were the prototypes that became Crescent Bay [a prototype for the retail version of the hardware], and when we compared what we had to what we were making internally, it was such a huge difference," Luckey said. "It was hard to look at what we had made before and say, 'Yeah, this is consumer-ready, this is what everyone is going to want

Change in material and visual quality increased the cost

To be fair, this price is in line with, or cheaper than, the first blu-ray players. They cost next to nothing these days. The issue here is that people didn't expect VR to follow quite the same steep pricing model.


I understand and once the technology matures I'm sure we'll see prices come down.  I'm sure 5-10 years from now a this base model that is being offered now will probably cost 99 dollars

I can't justify a nearly $700 price tag (including tax and shipping) for this thing, that's too high a price to be a beta tester.

Like the Xbox One Elite Controller I just can't justify the cost.  I was in potentially at 299.99 but I can't do 599 price point

So I heard on the radio that St. Louis, San Diego and Oakland all want to move to LA.  What a mess.

Apparently, there is room for two teams in LA,  Sad, but LA keeps losing teams but the NFL keeps trying to shove teams into the market.  I've always believed that the owners have the right to make a profit off the team, but fans actually own the franchise. 


Anyway, two of those fanbases are about to get fucked and my bet is St. Louis and San Diego

I'm thinking about doing this and I would like to know if you like it and was it worth ripping all your movies?   I have about 200 plus DvD and Blu-Rays and I'm thinking running a Plex server might be a good idea if it isn't too painful to set up

I ripped all my DVDs. Best decision ever. I'm especially fond of the Netflix-like UI on Plex. I run everything wirelessly via AC. No issues ever. I'm also shocked to see that it runs newer compression tech like h.265/HEVC flawlessly.


What are you using to rip and are you compressing your files?   if so, what are you using for compression?

hopefully 1080p, not sure why it's so hard for them

LOL,  I've actually been thinking something similar.  I have a ton of games that I haven't touched yet between my Steam and Xbox Library and with the free games I get from Xbox the list is growing and growing.  This year I successfully jumped off the pre-order bandwagon, so I think in 2016 I will slow down my buying of new games when they first come out. Now I know there are some games I will buy when they first become available due to my excitement level for the franchise but I'm hoping this will lead me to playing more of the games that I haven't touched yet

Also, I need to get back into reading too, so I'll take that challenge on on 2016

Well, its the annual Christmas Haul thread


It was a relative light year for me  I ended up with:

Guitar Hero Live XB1 - I asked for CoD but it was explained to me that I have too mmany games where the object is killing something, so I was given this as an alternative
Tomb Raider XB1 - Digital sale was just too good to pass up
Money
Hot Air Pop Corn Popper

Several DVD's and Blu Rays


How did you do this year

The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt - Probably the best rpg for me since BG2 and runner up is Fallout 4.   I keep trying to push forward but the side stuff keeps pulling me away


I would love to put in Halo 5 but as much as I like the game I hated being forced to play Locke.   I really had no interest in Team Osiris

Did anyone read the book?  I like the trailer but I have no idea if the source material is good.

The book is really just a text book with notes in the margins added by various character from the HP series I believe.  This movie is about the author and his journey to write his text book.   

It's probably a money grab by Warner Bros and sadly JK Rowling

This is last week before Star Wars The Force Awakens hits the theaters worldwide but prior to that what are you playing this weekend?

The Division Alpha for me.  I like what I see so far.  Haven't ventured into the Dark Zone yet, so that might be on tap.  Also, I'm sure I'll be playing some more Fallout 4

I would be playing but for some idiotic reason they decided only physical preorders can play and not digital ones and I have no desire to buy anything physical for xbox.

But I see how it is, you'll play a game like this, but not CoD, Battlefront or even Rainbow Six with us. pfft   crybaby

I didn't pre-order, so I'm shocked I got invited as I don't do physical media anymore

I plan to continue my travels in the wastelands of Boston.   Really need to pick back up the main story as I've only been doing side mission or base building.   


What's on your agenda this weekend?
112  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (12/1) on: November 30, 2015, 12:08:17 PM
Nada..  Just Cause never was a thing for me, so I'll be skipping that as well as Rainbow Six.   I did pick up Wolfenstein + DLC for 14.99 on the XB1 black Friday sale.   Never played it when it came out, so this was a no brainer for me

I'm probably binge watching Jessica Jones on Netflix this weekend with some FO4 mixed in for good measure and if I turn on my gaming rig I might download and play Overwatch since I was invited for this weekend stress testing

A craft brewery just opened in my neighborhood and I will be picking up a growler of their finest to enjoy while I watch Jessica Jones too

What's on your agenda this weekend

Has anyone been taking their power armor off? There was one point where I got down to my last power core but then almost immediately found a batch of 4.

Take my various suits off all the time.   Really, only use them when assaulting a very hard target .  I have about 18 cores in various stages of use.
