When the Stadia thread is not about Stux he becomes confused and scared and needs to break the page. Please be understanding and gentle, people.

Does anyone else refer to it as Google Stadiums and when someone corrects it to "Stadia" you tell them you were only ironically misnomering it and they have, in fact, been epicly pwned by your clever ruse

My understanding of Stadia/streaming VR approaches, is it essentially feeds a 180/360 video (or at least much wider than your FOV) and all the head-tracking and anything which might cause motion sickness is done locally against that video. It's not the stupidest idea in concept.
Of course, VR is a niche, so this is a niche of a niche so I imagine exactly 3 people will ever use it.

All ice cream is now for all beings, no matter how many legs.




lots of people want to try VR the hardware is too expensive, and not just to run it the headset too.

PSVR is the best cheap option for VR. (a used PS4 to run it isn't adding much as this point)

yeah hoping there's a new psvr for the PS5, I deleted my facebook account years ago (having a pretty common name makes the algorithm bonkers I guess) and gently caress diving back into that ever again lmao

Oculus requiring facebook is the dumbest decision in gaming, and that's saying something considering this is in the stadia thread

SCheeseman
Apr 23, 2003



It got a few people I know to at least set up stub Facebook accounts (including me lol). I'm not sure how much the requirement actually matters in terms of hindering adoption, the Quest has sold quite well and has the greatest attachment rate of any VR headset.

I was exaggerating, but it is a massive turnoff. I already have my email and phone number tied up in facebook and I have no interest in my friends and family knowing what I'm playing, why would I bother looking up how to make a spoof account when I could just get a headset that doesn't require that.

SCheeseman
Apr 23, 2003



Cost. Quest 2 is $299 and has no external hardware requirement (but can also connect to a PC). An Index costs $1k and requires a PC, PSVR is aging and the rest are kind of junk.

Not that I don't agree the account requirement is exploitative bullshit.

I got a dumb Windows headset for the cheaper price and it works with a little effort without having to do any social media bullshit. Anyways, Stadia!
