    Given Valve's track record for successful hardware launches, giving them nearly £1K, does not seem like a smart move, TBH.

    Going to order the 'Knuckles', been holding off getting controllers for my Vive Pro specifically for these.

    As for the HMD, it's going to have to be freaking awesome to get me off my lens modded Pro!

    A cool grand to play the excellent games that don't become dull after the initial VR novelty value wears off.

    Both of them.

    I've got Elite, what's the other one?
