Ah, didn't see this,my apologies for the redundant thread.

Looking interesting, can't say I'm all that into it but it looks good for what it is.

And there was me hoping this would be something that i would make use of, i guess i shall consign it to the same pile as Dust and Valkyrie then

Shame really, the idea of legion was pretty cool but i guess this pretty much officially kills it, personally i think VR is about as useful as 3D, something else i dont use, and i'm not investing in new hardware for something i will literally play once then forget about

You guys should try giving us stuff to compliment EVE instead of something used to sell hardware :P

I actually like the general idea, but #tweetfleet says the sky is falling so I'm going to go with that. Also, that's not a bad slogan for this game. Something something falling skies.

Well maybe you should try VR in a correct environment. Because stupid 3D is nothing compared to this. Trust me, i've played elite for hundred of hours with my ****** DK2 and i've never enjoyed a video game like this since my 10 yo, and i will never go back playing a space sim on a 2D screen. No way.

It's for Gear VR ( The Samsung+Oculus mobile Headset. And again trust me, in this case mobile != weak)

Won't draw any players away from EVE, but might lure some to try it. Who has done the development though? By some reason I get the feeling this wasn't done in-house.

Nah, not spending money on something that will be less efficient for the games i play, sure VR can be immersive, so yeah for that you might have a case, but for practicality and efficiency on multiple titles aswell as ease of access, hell no not even remotely worth it

I have no issues being immersed in a game purely through normal means, if i have to rely on a 3rd party peripheral to experience the game properly its not getting a look in, i dont own a VR headset and i can safely say i never will

Looks nice but I have some doubts about keeping the player interested. The new VR technology is a great draw but after you get used to it, isn't it just shooting targets moving on rails?

On positive side it made me want to dig up the SNES super scope 6 and fire up confront.

This post was rated "C" for capsuleer.

This was done in house, by a small team in our Shanghai studio Smile

You do realize that you already rely on 3rd party peripheral for a lot of games? Hell, a Gamepad is a 3rd party peripheral.

You have all right not to be interested in these tech, and i understand you. The only thing i'm saying is, that they're amazing for some kind of games, and i don't see why i shouldn't enjoy it if the experience is great and meaningfull. And it is, even if it relies on a peripheral.

Btw, i'm much much more efficient on Elite with a VR helmet than without. I can't track a thing without it now. Of course it's not true for every game, but it's just the same thing as buying a joystick or a wheel. It won't help you on most game, but still improve a lot your experience on others.

Who uses a gamepad for things other than racers and sports sims?

Console players dont count because 99.9% of the time they literally have zero choice in the matter

Also, nobody said YOU couldn't enjoy it, i just personally couldn't give a rats ass about it and would have preferred to see something i can actually make use of, CCP seems to be jumping on the "popular" bandwagons, when do we get the free to play EO mobile game?

Any pattern you're seeing in is your head, and if you're getting buttmad about it, then you're getting butt mad about nothing.

Where we're showing it this year (the events listed in the news item) are events that we have confirmed attendance at for the rest of 2015 (places we know we're sending Devs).

Gunjack is super portable, so wherever we're going this year, we'll more than likely be taking it.

EVE New England isn't on that list because it's so close to the announcement ay Gamescom, and we're not certain we'll have the hardware back from Germany and ready for transport to the US.

If we do, we'll be sending it along with CCP Guard, but we're not promising it for that particular event in case we can't make it happen.
