  1. I think I was just unlucky, I got a refund as Argos were out of stock at the moment so it seems to be selling well.
  2. Sadly I returned my quest this afternoon. The audio issues were really starting to annoy me and I tried a factory reset which then seemed to give me more screen tearing than I was getting previously and some messed up graphics in Space Pirate Trainer that only went away after a hard reset. I assume there was something faulty about the unit I had so may buy another in the future once any known niggles are sorted.
  3. Some more clarification from memory: You can choose 50hz or 60hz in the Super NT menu and this is what the system will attempt to automatically run ALL games at. If you encounter any issues with a particular game you can change the Hz and run the game at the required frequency. The refresh rate DOESN'T affect the borders on the Super NT as it's scaling the image to the correct aspect ratio so you don't get squashed images on PAL games, they are full screen(unless you want them and adjust the scaler accordingly!) There are no region lockouts, I believe if any game is especially clever you can set the region of the Super NT, I've never had any issues running anything so have never needed to look at this. F-Zero is one of the few games that apparently has minor issues when forcing PAL to NTSC, this website has a few more details but may not be 100% accurate (he says Zelda runs find at 60Hz but I've read elsewhere that the music was sped up slightly in the PAL release): http://simonsays.me.uk/retro-gaming/snes-game-preferable-version-list
  4. I'm at work so don't have my Super NT in front of me to double check how but I'm 99.9% sure you can run PAL games at 60Hz yes. I remember doing it when I first got the console before I started buying NTSC carts. A few PAL carts have been partially optimised so you can get a few glitches in a small minority of games and I don't think any of the SuperFX titles like being forced to 60hz.
  5. Lol I was trying to do the "keepie uppie" bit with it, no virtual animal's were harmed!
  6. I managed to punch the ceiling twice trying Bogo this evening, I think I need a bigger house!
  7. I was positively surprised by the graphics, especially in Vader Immortal. To me it looks much better in the headset than it did on captured videos I'd watched online. Things like shiny plastics and metals stand out much more in the headset and the storm troopers and Vader look really good.
  8. For anybody else having audio issues, I did some digging this morning. There seems to be a known issue with the audio as there's mention of it in the troubleshooting section of the oculus website: "I’m hearing some intermittent static or audio popping in my Oculus Quest. If you’re hearing some intermittent static or audio popping in your Oculus Quest, try using earbuds or headphones. We are investigating a software solution which will be available shortly after launch. If the noise persists, please contact Oculus Support directly." https://support.oculus.com/2276002305794365/ I'm still trying to decide about waiting it out too see if an update fixes it or getting a replacement as other people don't seem to be having the issue at all.
  9. Thanks for the replies, I've just run it again and still seeming to get a few audio glitches, I think a better way to describe them is like the scratches and pops you get when playing a vinyl record. I think I may see if a software update sorts it in the next day or so and if not try and return it.
  10. I seem to be getting a few crackles/pops on the audio fairly frequently. It sounds more like a software glitch rather than a hardware thing (if that makes any sense), is anybody else having similar?
  11. Just picked up my reservation from Argos, probably no chance to try it until about 8 tonight though!
  12. Just a heads up, I preordered a 64GB from Amazon on the 9th with today being listed as the delivery day and they still haven't dispatched it, I just spoke to customer services and they said they are "temporarily out of stock" so it doesn't look like i am getting it from them today. If anybody else doesn't have dispatch notification you may also be being disappointed today, I've managed to reserve one at Argos for collection so there may still be stock there.
  13. All the info I have read says it doesn't have a micro sd slot? :S
  14. I'm just concerned that maybe in a year or so's time games won't be so tiny and space becomes more of a concern. I have space issues with my 500GB PS4 as it is, though I can at least plug an external HD into that which you can't with the quest.
  15. Amazon have put more 64GB Quest's up for preorder if anyone was looking for one, I just ordered a one few minutes ago but still debating 128GB vs 64GB in my head!
