    Deluxe audio strap works with Q2/3, and for $25, it’s a great replacement for the crap strap it comes with. You’ll need 3D printed adapters but they’re not very expensive.

    Viveport/subscriptions rip-off developers!

    • ViRGiN

      So? Who cares about developers? Clearly not Steam users. We need more stores competition.

      How so?

      • Smurf

        Read the fine print in their sucker’s-contract.

        • Andrew Jakobs

          Enlighten us, as you clearly know exactly why.
