I bought it today. It says 2.40:1 16:9 on the back. Don't tell me this thing is going to that damned aspect changing IMAX deal? That's a mess for me with manual masking panels.

Do they? At my local BestBuy it seems roughly the same count of the same old(ish) titles sit there. I drop by once a week, but my opinion is they're being restocked sparingly and not flying off the...

I did the demos of the Rift and PSVR over the last two weekends. There's no A/B testing that went on, nor was the material the same on the two demos. So my opinion has no scientific basis, but I walk...
