im a backer of Pimax 8k 200 degree field of view headset from Kickstarter. Its a upscale 4k per eye but no screen door and tiny text is readable in VR with ultrad sharp resolutionand low persistent so no motion blur. No need beefy graphic card and its compatible with all Steam games and Oculus games and Tridef and Vorpx!!!!

I think this is fake news report, how the sales will increase without having a definite price for a product? In countries like India, it is a costly affair. Only rich people can buy these VR headsets.

Counting down the days until I get a PSVR. November can't come quick enough. Least I can use it with both PS4 and PC. Then ill buy a dedicated VR headset for PC sometime next year.
