One of my favorite games of last gen - this is one that you either love or hate. I am in the first camp.

I haven't played a game since Marathon LOL. I'm getting this for my iMac M3 so I can experience the new capabilities and games. I still suck at games but I gotta have this one for the new hardware. Pre-ordered and can't wait to play this.

"In related news, Apple are partnering with Peleton for a special visionOS version of this award winning walking simulator. It will allow players to use a treadmill to move forward in the game whist immersed in a [S]Virtual Reality[/S] Spatial Computing environment. The sophisticated technology in the visionOS headset detects if the wearer is about to take a step and slowly activates the treadmill via a wifi connection. Apple advises signing up for AppleCare+ before using the integrated feature."

Curious what kind of performance we can expect on non-pro M-chips. I have MBA M2 and would like to try this game, but don't want to spend $20 on a crappy visual experience.
