    Also, one of the other good things about normal monitors is that you can, you know, watch many different things at the same time in different Windows.
    Cool

    I feel it would be a relevant discussion if the act of performing productivity tasks could be presented in an immersive, 3D environment with high definition graphics and next-generation spatial audio, to make it really feel like you were really in an office.

    The kind of experience you would only be able to get in VR. Or a real office.

    I just ordered a Rift S.

    It arrives one day before Star Wars Squadrons come out.

    Me happy.

    Well my Rift arrived today, three days earlier than expected.

    Super-duper early impressions, well, my impression as soon as I opened the box was that itís of a much more premium quality than PlayStation VR. More sturdy construction but somehow a lot lighter.

    The inside-out tracking is great. Again, much better than PSVR, which loses sight if youíre too far way from the camera. The Rift S doesn't need anything base stations so itís super easy to set up. Plus you can do that funky thing where you Ďpaintí your safe zone, and it also means you donít have to stand in a specific part of the house. Iíve got a much more spacious area a few meters to the side of the TV than I do right in front of it, which I plan to use when I start playing Vader Immortal and HL: Alyx.

    Iíve got no worries at all playing Assetto Corsa in VR as it runs smooth as silk. But the first piece of software I fired up was Fantasynth, which is a free tech demo music thing available on Steam. The image quality is absolutely outstanding when compared to PSVR. Both the crispness of the screens and the rendering of materials in the graphics engine are amazing.

    But then again the Rift S is twice the price of PSVR and itís hooked up to a 2070.
