Howdy Yawl.

Anyone know of somewhere to rent the Vive in Melbourne? A house mate owned one for a while and i enjoyed using it.  Tossing up whether or not to buy one, absolutely heartbroken i missed the kogan and dicksmith ( yes i know their also kogan) sale the other week. At a $1000 i would have picked one up for sure.  

On another Vive side topic, anyone heard anything about the Vive 2 release date?

Its an interesting time for VR. We are over a year since the 1st vive and haven't heard much from either oculus or htc. Oculus just announced it will not be at E3 this year which maybe a good or bad thing.

They maybe working on something new and are not ready to show it or they are backing away from spending unnecessary money and cutting back.

If there is nothing your desperate to play i would hold off. I would hope htc arent too far away with vive 2 announcement.

Either way you will have a ball.
