Chelsea FC news: 'Reports of rift between Roman Abramovich and Antonio Conte denied by Blues'

Friday, November 3, 2017 Chelsea have moved to play down claims Antonio Conte is facing the sack.

Oculus slashes Rift prices as sales sag

There’s been good news on the VR front of late, but precious little of it is coming from Oculus. Earlier this week, Sony announced it was closing on one million VR headsets sold since the launch late last year. Sony has moved 915,000 VR units to date, even though we haven’t seen many new VR games launch for the platform (though Resident Evil 7 is a notable exception). Oculus has been busy these last few months bringing its touch controllers to market, working on a new standalone headset that doesn’t require…
