Your last bit there is kinda the kicker, isn't it? And from what I've seen I think that may already be true.

I have shamefully barely used my touch controllers - the mitigating factor is that I (we) have far too much stuff and it needs to be stored in that room. I don't really have enough space for roomscale.

On the other hand I've put about 400 hours into the headset itself - I estimate about 390 of those hours are with iRacing though - which is fine as that was the primary use case for me.

Yeah, but if there's one thing I've discovered since getting Touch controllers, it's that VR isn't really all that it's cracked up to be when you're not able to engage in the world that much - and the motion controls and tracking on the PSVR systems I've tried (a friend's, and the one at the Arcade Club) was a serious step back from what I'm used to.

My play space is "moderate", and is basically about 1.8m2 (I can't type the superscript 2 character as the Alt+ code triggers a keyboard shortcut in Chrome :P)

Mine is moderate too, when it's clear. Which is not often.

I actually have the space for room scale, right now, I think. Close to it anyway. It'd be uncertain after we move though.

Is it the house over the road from me that Curio isn't moving to? We could have capers!

Buckingham is 1 hour 40 to his work, Shipley is 2 hours 30. Capers!

Barring a collapse in London house prices, yes. But I am assured Brexit will be a stunning success and that won't happen.

You'll probably have money left over to buy a Porsche.

My house deposit + stamp duty is easily into buy-a-Porsche-outright money (sob). But you can't live in a Porsche.

Train line in isn't bad. Some places are better than living in much of actual London due to quick train lines.

Liar, you're incredibly poor and envious of those who can buy Porsches (on credit agreements). That's the reason you're a hardline lefty.

A friend works for a car dealership. They had a 60k porsche in. They sold it. Before they could move it to the owner, she used her own money to pay the finance off that her employer had used to buy it to sell it because the business had no cash. Her own cash. Madness.

Wasn't there a bloke who lived in a Lamborghini because he reasoned that "you can live in a car but you can't drive a house" ?

What do you want split, the house-buying talk or the living in a Lamborghini bit? If the latter, just start a new thread with it, you lazy shite ;)

Wait, you're going to have to explain that further. My pitiful human brain literally cannot parse that long sentence into anything that makes sense.

She used her own money to settle the finance on the car so that the dealership could legally sell it. She presumably then got her money back from the dealership.
