Saw this coming

The moment Oculus was taken over by Facebook, I could see this coming.

However, there are other options. I've now received my Pimax 5k+, which works brilliantly. I also previously received a Fove, which shows how good eye tracking can be. Given that the Pimax is modular and will get eye and hand tracking modules, Oculus will be left in the dust.

UK/EU price premium

I was going to buy a 3DS at launch. But not with that price premium. Who do Nintendo think they are kidding?

No surprise

there - after all a lot of blu-rays are just copies of the DVD media stream, with software upscaling done by the manufacturer.

It's the new films which are captured at the higher resolution of blu-ray, or old films that have been remastered & cleaned up, that show the benefits of HD.

Sony pumps up PSP screen

PSP competition

Quite frankly Sony are losing the plot on this one - I suspect most homebrew software enthusiasts will move over to the Pandora console [http://openpandora.org/] when it gets released. Anything they do that puts barriers in the way of modding the PSP will just push people to a device designed to be played about with.
