The recent Facebook Connect event gave us the official reveal of Facebook’s Oculus Quest 2, the next version of their all-in-one VR headset package. The information revealed was rather similar to the leaked info from a few days ago, all except the pricing, which is actually now a lot cheaper than the original Quest despite upgrades in the technology.
The Oculus Quest 2 will be coming in 2 different flavors: 64GB for $299, and 256GB for $399. Now that’s a pretty damn good deal for affordable VR. The new Quest 2 has also seen an upgrade in specs with a 50 percent increase in pixels for a resolution of 1832 x 1920 per eye, it also has 6GB of RAM and as per the leaks is using the Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 processor.
Additionally, the controllers have been redesigned to have a longer battery life, and will still include a connection to the PC for higher-end games if you so need to. Unfortunately though, the Oculus headsets will require you to sign up for a Facebook account soon, so if you’re not too happy about that then maybe the Quest 2 is not such a good idea.
If you are interested though, you can pre-order the Oculus Quest 2 from the official website now, and the estimated delivery date is around October time.
