8k Headset delivered the other day (unholybeardedone)


#1

G’day all.

I am 1 of the 2 Australian backers in the first batch.
I have just received an email from Australia Post to say that my headset
is on-board for delivery today!

Eff Yeah!!!

Will try and post some pics later and some first impressions.
Not sure when as I am a little bit busy today. It will be this evening sometime hopefully. :ok_hand::grin:


#2

Okay, what graphic card do you have? Give me your impression of playing games and watching movies in regard to SDE.


#3

Awesome. Please make us all jealous.


#4

I only have a GTX 1070 at the moment. Looking to upgrade when prices normalise a little.

The impressions will include Assetto Corsa, Iracing and some Elite as I generally only play these sims.
I have access to some other games but they require base stations to play and sadly I don’t have those.


#5

Look forward to your impressions. Thanks ahead of time and congrats.

G’day UnholyBeeardedOne,
Good to see an Aussie got one of the first batch.
I think your in Sydney aren’t you?
I’m in Perth and backer 3000+ something.

I’m really interested in what you think of the 8K+.
I have a while to make a decision.

Perth backer, 1290 here :slight_smile:


#8

I would be very keen on the Elite gameplay :slight_smile: my main game! - really looking forward to the wide FOV


#9

G’day mate!

I am in Hobart, Tasmania.
I will post some impressions here when I get time later.

I have a rift for comparison and my son is here too, he also plays VR a lot
so I will get his first impressions too.

Games will be limited to sit down play only as have no base stations. I have controllers, but they are no
good on their own.

I have not played Elite for over 6 months, hopefully this headset will get me back into it.
Have played it on and off since Beta and put quite a few hours into it. Have something like $12 Billion credits lol.


#11

That’s right. Tassie.
Awesome. Hanging to hear what you think.
I’m sure it will be much better than the rift.

#12

This is one of the times where being a two-headed Tasmanian would of come in handy lol.


#13

Good to see headsets starting to get delivered. Will be interesting to hear how the headset performs without base stations.


#14

You said it. Not me :slight_smile:
I hope you are having an Aussie RDO (Sicky) today.
While you wait for the Posty to turn up.


#15

That’s cool that Australia got some love.


#16

Not sure if you have the same issue, but iRacing has been kinda juddery lately. Have you noticed that? Either way, looking forward to your review.


#17

congrats and cant wait for you to share your experience.
we’ve seen 5k+ user receiving his and shared his experience.
so your 8k experience will be a very much appreciated info for people
undecided on 5k+ and 8k.


#18

I am also in Hobart, Tasmania.
I’m backer 3### though. So quite a wait for me before I get my hands on it.
Good to hear that postage to Tasmania is quick!


#19

I haven’t used the rift for a while in Iracing, but have seen users have some issues since the new build.
I’m hoping that I can get it to run on the 1070.

Lol :grin:

I am permanently at home due to injury at the moment so everyday is a “sicky”
