    LOL! Dude, nothing wrong with it! We all have choices :thumbup:

    Sort of, when I train I put something on the screen, but no audio. I have tunes through Spotify on a small UE Boom 2.

    Haha, nice. I get it, I put earphones in a tune the word out at the gym; still find myself looking up at the tvs though.

    When are the going to make these titles into VR as well?!? Is it because the uptake for VR has been so slow or the development takes so much more effort?!?

    This bit.

    You can't have people testing VR 10+ hours a day that game dev demands. They start puking everywhere. I've seen it first hand.

    You've seen the infantile tantrums the entitled manbabies that make up a large chunk of gaming audiences throw already, and that's with devs pulling sixteen hour days, seven days a week, for months on end.

    "It'll take longer" is a sentence that gets your department funding slashed before you can even squeeze it out.

    Yup I got that bit. My point being two things:

    1) Read "The Mythical Man Month". You can't just throw more people at a complex problem to solve it faster. Sometimes that makes things worse. (The "If one woman can make a baby in 9 months, 9 women can make a baby in one month" fallacy).

    2) The gaming market is caustic at the best of times. It's a complex combination of things that got it here, bit the reality is lengthy development times aren't tolerated, even for people as huge as RockStar.

    We'll never know, but I'm sure there's a tonne of content that got cut from RDR2 because it would have blown Dev time out even further.

    I have the launcher open now. You can only choose ONE free game now, whereas it was TWO before the 22nd

    I can't remember the last time I paid $89 for a game, even new! Seems a bit steep even with a free game :(

    NDA says no.

    It is funny, though.
