Stuff That Sucks: Oculus and HTC VR Launch

Stuff That Sucks returns after some delays due to component shortages.


Greg Burke is back with a rant about the long-awaited consumer virtual reality launch. There is plenty of Greg's rage to go around for both HTC and Oculus as each company has made some missteps during this crucial launch period. Who are you more angry at? When is your Rift or Vive supposed to ship? Please watch the video and let us know what you think in the Chatty.

      Negative Nancy says don't repeat your point multiple times in a 4 minute video when it's your only point. Make the video shorter.

      My co-worker got his ViVe today. Mine comes tomorrow. Not as fast as I expected, but they never actually promised me a date, just they would begin shipping in April. I just assumed cause I ordered day one, that it would have been here sooner.

      So when you wearing em do you see just the lenses or are they black areas around the lens etc that you see all the time?

      Cool vid Greg, I dig it and totally agree its really is crazy, seems like they just don't care about backers which is insane.

      LOL @ the end :) that was GOLDEN.

      I am skipping 1st Gen VR all together(well I have no money to get it even if I wanted to) and am waiting for Gen 2 or maybe even 3.

      Once VR has a body mess controller suit that maps your body as the controller and a cool treadmill for walking around and we have mega GPUs to run the hyper realistic games with no lag I think then I be all over VR like HARDCORE. But till then its a pass for me to tell you the truth, its not their yet but its making a good start.
