    Pretty off-topic, but I'm sure some will be interested in hearing this.

    The HTC Vive, a VR device which was slated for a limited release this year and a full release Q1 of next year, was delayed in its entirety until April 2016. I'll be waiting for it, in the hopes that it will be released a better product than if it was earlier.

    Here's the announcement blog post (and here's an alt post until blog issues get sorted out).

    Anyone else looking into VR 2016? I got the opportunity to try out the Vive in October, and was very, very happy with the experience.

    Was it specifically going to be a dev release? I thought it was a limited release to the general public?
