    Though the title will be compatible with all PC VR headsets, it will be free for owners of the Valve Index, Valve's $1000 high-end VR headset that launched earlier this year. Though Valve has not officially announced any specific special compatibility with the Valve Index, screenshots for the game show the player's hands wearing "Gravity Gloves," which may take advantage of the Index's finger tracking and grip sensing technology.

    I like how the grav gun tech just fits in perfectly with VR hands and the room scale problem like picking up guns that are far away etc.

    $60. Hopefully there's a bit of time to spent in there.

    I'm relieved this wasn't just for Index.

    I think theyíve done too much with SteamVR interoperability to leave that behind.

    That said, this might well be a £920 purchase for me.

    I'm actually looking at £920 and thinking, yeah but I get the game included, so it's not actually £920 :eek:

    I mean I already bought the RTX 2080 so basically Iím wasting it if I donít get the Index. Oculus Link wonít cut it.

    Edit for clarity: Iím not that bad, it was mostly paid for by a bonus from work.

    I read somewhere that that the controllers are enough to get the game free. Bargain!

    I think it might need the newer lighthouses? Either that or the Index headset need them.

    Just the headset. Controllers can be added to Vive (I think).

    Both headset and controllers work with the 1.0 base stations.
    What's also exciting is they are releasing the SDK with this, including assets, so people will be able to make all kinds of crazy stuff.

    Yeah, that looks really nice. This is all a nice big kick in the hole to VR to the next level. And a different approach to Oculus so there's plenty of bases being covered. Portal game in the late summer?

    Or you can pick up an Oculus headset for much less, the rift is meant to be on sale for Black Friday.

    @AaronTurner I already have the quest. With the movement options and confirmation that itíll even work sitting, Iím covered - itís just what things like finger tracking will bring.

    I think Oculus are about to sell a lot of headsets.

    They briefly talk about portal in Geoff Keighley's video.

    @AaronTurner Ooh, is it? I was hoping it'd go on sale for BF, but haven't been able to find out whether it would.

    Looks unreal, as you'd expect. Likely gonna blow an unseemly amount of money on this...
