  • "I do care about VR headsets, particularly this one (and I dont expect anyone else to care, it's still a niche object). The original PSVR felt very much like a thorough, long term, cautious testbed for a number of VR issues Sony was exploring. They did a lot right, particularly for ergonomics: Sony's headband design is brilliant, easily the most comfortable way of hanging a weird bulky box in front of one's face of all the VR headsets. In other ways it felt very much like a prototype and a peripheral add-on, shoehorned into the PS4 to see if there was even a market for VR. There are a number of really nice design details, things that worked in the original, additions the original was wanting for. As a dedicated game and design geek, this is good news all around.And yes, I love that design thinking is being inflicted on laypeople."

  • "It's visually appealing, but the proprietary charcoal makes it seem almost like a Juiciero of grilling - I understand the problem they sought out to solve, but there's only so much innovation and problem solving one can expect from placing food over (or under, or indirectly near) heat, and I'm not convinced that this is a productive tangent. "

  • "I thought they reminded me a little of the oculus controllers, but the resemblance is minimal. My big takeaway is confidence in what Sony is doing: the original PSVR was (and still is, though now very dated) an absolute home run, finding the right balance of satisfying what makes for good and comfortable vr gameplay with obvious cost cutting to make a peripheral device to the main console. While it lagged behind in some ways (mostly graphic fidelity and tracking), it’s still provided me with a few solid years of enjoyment. It’s downright good. If their track record keeps going with the next generation, it will be a fantastic but probably not top-of-the-line vr headset. These controllers are promising: Sony has taken criticism of the current tech (their very dated Move controllers) and improved the big flaws. "

  • "I drive a Volvo 240 because it's a durable, simple machine that is crazy user-friendly - thoughtful, spacious, utilitarian. But they're getting old, and I always wished a modern manufacturer would pick up the Volvo Redblock mantle. The bronco almost feels like a best hope in that direction - sure, it's exponentially more complex, the storage space isn't nearly as good, but it's boxy, has the user firmly in mind, and it SEEMS like quality won at least a few budget arguments. I have doubts that it's capable of the same astronomical mileage as a 240, but fingers crossed. It's an appealing vehicle so far."
