Elite Dangerous in VR on our $13,000 gaming rig is pure dogfighting bliss

After booting up The Witcher 3 at 4K last week and Titanfall 2 before that, we continue to put our Large Pixel Collider (opens in new tab) through its paces with Elite Dangerous on the HTC Vive, our first VR game. Watch pilot Tom Marks barrel roll his way into danger in the video above.

The joystick we're running is the Thrustmaster HOTAS Warthog (opens in new tab), our pick for a high-end stick if you're going all-in on flight simulation and cockpit gaming.
