Oculus Quest 2 delivers the next generation of all-in-one VR
If you’ve wanted to embrace VR but have yet to be convinced by the headsets on offer -- or just as importantly the price of the headsets on offer -- then the Facebook-owned Oculus hopes you’ll give its next generation Oculus Quest a look. And you really should.
There’s a lot to like about the new Oculus Quest 2, which takes what was good about the original and improves on it significantly, while giving it a much more affordable starting price -- just $299. That’s $100 cheaper than its predecessor.
It has a redesigned all-in-one form factor, new Touch controllers with better ergonomics, and Oculus’ highest-resolution screen to date -- 1832 x 1920 pixels per eye. That’s 50 percent more pixels than the original Quest, and it's capable of supporting 90Hz too.
Quest 2 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 Platform offering higher AI capability, and 6GB of RAM.
The headset will also have a much better library of titles to enjoy, which is another major selling point. These will include: Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge, Myst, Jurassic World Aftermath, Warhammer 40,000 Battle Sister, Pistol Whip: 2089, The Climb 2, and Rez Infinite.
Quest 2 will support a new line of optional accessories as well.
Oculus Quest 2 is available to pre-order today at oculus.com and global retail partners including: Best Buy, GameStop, Target and Walmart in the US; Currys PC World and FNAC Darty in the UK and EU; and of course Amazon worldwide.
