This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Today is the day folks, after waiting 13 years (!!) we finally have a new Half Life game.
OH JEAH!
It should certainly ease the social distancing.

Will be be back to full price in a couple of hours I'd imagine.

Mine's currently pre-loading at a mere 48.3 gigabytes. I'd imagine once the other side of the pond wakes, the internetz is gonna take some hammering from all those downloads.

500 is generous. What about the price of the pc to run it on?


Don't forget the price of the house to put the PC in.

Rent the equipment...... probably not a good idea in the time’s we’re living.

"Ease social distancing"... VR users = 1% of steam users and therefore less than 0.1% of the population.

True, but I kinda assume that usual PC users would have one already and this is a major bolt on most of us don't have. Wish they just made HL3 without VR! Talk about chucking a franchise oppertunity away......

They never claimed to call this half life 3, people have just taken it that way. People always wanted a killer VR app and got some, here it is.

I have so much to play. But I have still gone and got dragged into the hype and got this. Hopefully it works well enough on a 1070.

Voted hot for the game(y)
Is this a deal? Or just an advert for a game?
Does this work with the first gen vive?

Such a lovely game, and who ever had the nerve to suggest it should only be for VR?
Hope it works well with my Quest and Link... 🙏
Cheers ordered

LOL, that sounds so wrong.
Always best to wait until the review embargo is lifted I've yet to see any VR game that is worth anything near £40, doubt this will be any different.

The best thing gaming has seen in ages! I got the specs and the equipment, so BRING IT ON!!

Well it's said to be around a 15 hour experience equivalent to HL2, but in VR. Doubt you won't get your money's worth.
It's new Half Life. It's worth every penny

A company desperate to shift VR units in the hope that it appears to be a viable business enterprise and not an expensive toy that only a few people can afford?

He says finding a cheaper deal... cjs-cdkeys.com/pro…BwE It was literally just on the google listings on the right when I searched for it... Never heard of this site so not sure it can be trusted or not but £38.95 here and you can pay via PayPal so you should be covered right?

Plenty of people seem to have £500+ to spend on graphics cards. After that, spending an extra £400 on game-changing technology doesn't seem that much of a stretch. VR's biggest limitation so far has been the lack of triple-A content. That changes as of today. Given the scarcity of headsets in the market at the moment it seems to have worked. With more headsets out there, other companies will have more incentive to invest in VR titles

My biggest concern is getting some work done in the next few weeks.
Curious to hear if it's any good. I'd need a PC upgrade to play with the Quest, so hanging fire for the moment.

I think the default movement method is 'teleporting' (?) like Doom VFR / Blood & Truth so hopefully you'll be ok.
Holy hell. That’s the priciest pic game I’ve ever seen.

I figured this would be a short experience
You can get a pc and vr to run this for below what some people are saying here, just check on here for mixed reality and the ryzen pc's with a medium card. Its not 120hz and super res but its absolutly fine for me.

You can pick your locomotion. I chose teleport with quick dash animation. Played for an hour and heck it's sublime. It's slick highly detailed and really makes you feel like you are in the world. Worth every penny. Oh and I got a Samsung odyssey + for £280 delivered from Amazon America. That was an upgrade from an OG vive.

Each half life game gave birth to a new technology and generation. This is doing nothing less. Apple also removed the headphone jack and now that's the standard.

You know that's a decision made to try to push people towards expensive Bluetooth headphones. My point exactly lol

My point is that it's just heralding newer technology. And new technology will be expensive. Things change and it won't be cheap at its start.
Played a few levels and OH MY! So much nostalgia hits. Lots of references to HL1. Amazing graphics and atmosphere as always. Worth every penny! The experience on Rift S and RX 5700XT + 2700x is amazing. Runs very smooth with High settings.
Played an hour or so last night. The attention to detail on "throwaway" scenes where you're just passing through is amazing. Well worth the money.
