Anyone know where I could see a perspective video on the kit the lad is playing with in this video? https://www.instagram.com/p/CGpoC5Lh..._web_copy_link

Is a Vr headset only adaptable to a very limited number of racing games? I would have thought it’s adaptable to no console games at all but I could be totally wrong.

Publishers pay streamers hundreds of thousands of dollars to play their game. To think any of them would think they could charge the streamers a fee is beyond daft.

Outside the few genuine mysteries like among us. If you see Ninja, Dr. Disrespect or Shroud etc playing a new game you can guarantee they are paid promotions.

Imagine thinking Messi should pay Pepsi a license fee for using the Pepsi logo in an ad for Pepsi.

Though I've gotten some interesting chit chat out of it on my end about where the games industry intends to go with streaming in the future, at some point someone is going to want to throw enough money at streaming to demand some level of control.

I dont think licences will be a thing, the games industry has always tried to avoid solving it's problems with legal, my money is on twitch or youtube throwing money at some playstation or xbox exclusive title in the future to have it locked that streaming that title from the console will only be able to stream to their website and that will open a floodgate in the same way we saw a tonne of timed exclusives to consoles and the epic store, we'll get the same for streaming platforms.
According to a tweet by Jason Schrier, he's not actually a creative director at Stadia. He works for a games studio which Google bought to become part of Stadias exclusives. This is just the stupid opinion of a guy that happens to be part of a company that Google bought, not some guy who is shaping the direction of Stadias road map.

Back during the big and practically pointless voice actor strike, some of the more Hollywood actors were arguing that they should also get a cut of streaming revenue. That never made it into the demands in the end, not that they got anything from their demands but that didn't even make the demand list.

Licensing for other mediums works that way for public performances and while we might roll our eyes and point out the difference, some will just see how it works elsewhere and want another cut.

GT Sport on the PS4 lets you do time trials in VR mode, but nothing else. Wipeout Omega Collection also has a VR mode if you've got a strong enough stomach.

On PSVR you have a very limited mode in GT Sport,
Just you and one other car on the track if I remember.
Dirt rally 1 is fully playable.
The only other racing game was Driveclub but it's pulled from the store.

On the PC you're spoiled for Racing Sims which are VR compatible.

I saw a few developers sharing this, and it’s well worth a look for a bank holiday diversion. It’s basically environmental storytelling and exploration at its finest and most surprising Try to unlock the achievement for finding the secret shower room.

I was hoping for something like Gone Home but i actually felt more anxious going through this house. It took me 2 'playthroughs' to find the secret shower room

So many questions, so few answers. I saw some bananas in a bowl on a table and thought 'oh, at least they have some fruit out', turned a corner and about a hundred boxes of bananas, wtf!

Serious anxiety living/working there!

Apparently it’s a former church, so the belief is the shower room used to be a baptism space. Makes having to walk by the Girls Gone Wild DVDs to get to it even funnier.
