    The DiRT Roadbook

    Why would I like To have seen a delay on the OpenVR release? So they could continue to develop and optimize the openVR version as it's obviously underdone going by feedback. Let the devs do their job and tell the marketing and accounts team to chill. It'd also have helped highlight they are treating each version as a separate platform, supported by a press release stating as such. From what I understand of the ESport competition they won't have VR at the events so it seems odd that people can qualify with OpenVR. Ive seen this used as a reason Oculus users may not be allowed in the event on this forum.

    I can understand the delay of Oculus DLC to an extent. If they are used in the community events it locks new buyers out unless they buy the DLC and there will be backlash on that too. Damned if they do, damned if they don't. Those that do have the DLC from what I understand can only use it in freeplay and not in career or community so its of limited value. Unfortunately the only way anyone has found out about any of this is to experience it. I'd have liked to see a delay between the oculus and steam VR versions as it was well known that oculus had helped fund VR. I was fully expecting the VR support to be Oculus exclusive and the fact it dropped on steam on the same day was a surprise to me. That lead me to believe they must both be the same as it listed oculus support in Steam. Silly assumption as it is Codemasters. I know the guys responsible for the software just want everyone to love their game, and we do. It really just seems there was a lack of fore-thought, or a willful withholding of information by the business boffins. It feels more like the latter. On another note, I do appreciate the work PJ is doing. I know he'd love to just give everyone the news they want to hear but he can only pass on what's been confirmed and approved.

It seems oculus isn't on a PC, or at least it ceases to be a PC once an oculus headset is attached I expected as much given the lack of clarity throughout regarding the oculus version. I believe the announcement does mention Steam, its just unfortunate that the documentation isn't consistent with that.
