Based in the UK, Paul has been immersed in interactive entertainment for the best part of 27 years and has followed advances in gaming with a passionate fervour. His obsession with graphical fidelity over the years has had him branded a ‘graphics whore’ (which he views as the highest compliment) more than once and he holds a particular candle for the dream of the ultimate immersive gaming experience. Having followed and been disappointed by the original VR explosion of the 90s, he then founded RiftVR.com to follow the new and exciting prospect of the rebirth of VR in products like the Oculus Rift. Paul joined forces with Ben to help build the new Road to VR in preparation for what he sees as VR’s coming of age over the next few years.

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

      should wait for the controller.

      • JoeD

        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).
