    Prepare your money losers… We should wait couple of months, for lower prices, better gpu’s and fixed bugs.

      should wait for the controller.

        yeah, the lack of controller at release is really disappointing.

      Better GPUs, that’s what I’m waiting for. When will Pascal be released anyway? If it’s in the 2nd half of the year, i’ll just go with the 980ti.

      Fuck that! You can sit out in the cold whining about us “first-genners” while I bask in the glow of my VR fireplace (in Unity, natch).
