Finally getting Minecraft.

I can't wait to spend 2 weeks building an underground train system once again :lol:
My kids will love it. Never played it myself... Got my eye on Dreams but haven't had the time to get stuck in.

That's a huge, huge disappointment. As a PSVR owner, I don't see myself investing in any future VR technology that's still wired.
Wireless VR, thats only a thing on quest because the games are run on the headset itself low resolution not great quality.

You can't expect decent fully fledged games to be on a wireless VR headset the power needed to create these games is a lot.

Edit: I see HTC have a wireless adaptor but its around £300 so it doesnt make sense to have that on a console version.

Using a single chord is a big positive because the sheer number of wires involved on the current one is ridiculous. One of the main reasons why I very rarely play it, despite thinking it's a great piece of tech.

One wire is still an improvement over the current setup - and release will be over a year away (like 18 months) so things could still change. Biggest thing will be the change in tracking and controller.

Announcement now is probably because the devkits are coming out soon, like with the PS5 Devkits and that Wired article announcing the PS5 in 2019.

Quest 2 is great espcially when you play games running on Steam on the pc with it.
