Still waiting for that 4K VR, though 3K is nice too and much easier to run.
Glad too see VR still going and advancing. That said, not sure how I feel about the built-in headphones.
Me either. I would much rather use my own 7.1 headset for longer play sessions. Unless the quality of the built in headphones is close to that of my headset, which I doubt.
But for short sessions I could see myself not bothering with my headset and just using the integrated one.
But why though?
Hopefully they're removable.
I imagine it's because it's kind of a hassle to use separate headphones with a VR headset. You have to put on the VR headset first, and by habit I always want to pull off the VR headset first, but that doesn't really work since it tries to rip my headphones off with it. It's not a big deal, but just having one device to put on and take off makes it more accessible and makes it easier to pick up and play anytime.
