    That's actually not a bad price but I will still wait until next year and see how all three workout.
    I think the Vive looks like the best package, but at something like C$2500 all-in it's a pretty big investment, and there doesn't seem to be a ton of content. If I can get a PS4 package with VR for something like C$1000 they could win me over.

    I think there will be a lot of big advances for CV2 of both the Rift and Vive anyway. This Sulon thing looks cool but may be impractical, but it kind of hints at how VR will change in 2-3 years.

          I'm telling you guys. You buy the steam code from them, and install it through Steam as normal, but you pay normal exchange rates, plus an extra 20% off they always give as promotions. I doubt I'll ever buy another game directly through Steam now that they have these Canadian prices.

              Truue.. Didn't even think that they'd be charging $80 for Console too.. geezus .. though the fact you at least get a physical resellable disk out of it is probably the better transaction.

                  I buy digitally for convenience but Xbox does have a rewards program that basically gives you free money the more u do things like buy games, rent movies, watch TV shows etc.

                    Only if you're willing to go through the trouble of Kijiji or Craigslist. Lets face it, trade-ins are a total rip off, especially if you do it any time longer than three to six months out from release.

                    For me, I'd rather do the digital route, less fuss and I'm at the point in life where I'm not buying much and digital is so easy, especially if you have a really fast connection. I'm on fiber op, I could download FO4 now and be playing it in 15-20 minutes.

                    That's a conservative estimate. I downloaded Ark Survival Evolved(nearly 42GB, compressed though of course so less than that) and installed it in no more than 10 minutes last month. I can't get to the store in ten minutes. LOL

                      Oh I'm not arguing with any of that. Trust me, I've been on Steam and PC for a very long time.
                      But still, getting a physical disk for the same price that we pay for "convenience" isn't a bad proposition for console players. Even getting $20 back at the end of the game for some people is a big difference maker. Basically a money-back rebate.

                        • Apparently PSVR sold out almost instantly on preorders in Europe; I don't know about here. My guess people are worried about high demand to the point they can't get one for month due to sell outs. I know I didn't adopt PS4 right away but the following March or April, whenever I finally did get one, it was after a month of looking for one online and in stores. The only other options were Amazon and eBay where they were marking them up 50%.

                            Wow seriously underscored review. Game is amazing imo. This review would have made sense for destiny when it came out but the division has more than enough to keep me coming back. Already put more than 50 hours into it and nowhere near done. It will only get better in the coming months too.

                            • I can see how the game might not be for everyone with its RPG elements but there are def higher scores out there. I've seen a perfect score, 8/10 and 9/10. Interestingly enough that low review comes from the same company that decided to create a successful weekly talk show devoted strictly to the division because there is "so much depth and so much to talk about". Might not be everyone's cup of tea but still a great game imo.

                                They didn't knock it in the review for lack of content.
