Acer and Starbreeze Announce New VR Headset: StarVR

The hype for Virtual Reality is real, and Acer is wanting in on some of the action. Starbreeze launched StarVR with a VR-experience at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in June 2015 by the acquisition of French company Infinite Eye. Acer was obviously impressed with the StarVR system and have now teamed up with Starbreeze to help launch it.

#AcerBlogLive2016 : Acer Predator G1-710 Small Gaming PC Initial Impressions

#AcerLiveBlog2016 : Predator Z35 & X34 Ultra-Wide Monitor Initial Impressions

Well, it is the 3rd time I have attended one of the Acer liver blogging events and so far this looks like it is going to be the best yet. Mainly due to the devices we have to play with. In the past a lot of the tech has focussed on low to mid end phones and tablets, and they were never bad at all, but it is a little hard to get excited about them at the same time.  This year things are totally different, everything is focussed on the Predator ranges, which if you are not aware...
