VR Oculus Quest 2

Facebook pushing for stand alone VR…
But if it can be linked to a pc… it’s still another 4k vr helmet…

Nope. Nope nope nopity nope.

Facebook and oculus can go eat a British pudding for all I care.

Yep they have had the last of my money unfortunately. I even got an email from them the other day confirming our worst fears. Stick it oculus.

Hmmmmm pudding. I have been enjoying the sticky toffee pudding served at the hotel I’m staying at in the UK for the past week. :grin:

As for the Oculus/Facebook situation, I guess we all knew it was inevitable to some extent. The writing has been on the wall for quite some time.

@Victork2 so does that mean you can still run Oculus without a Facebook account but it will be linked to facebook in the background anyway?

I haven’t got any Facebook acc. Seems to run fine so far.

The part that pisses me off the most from the agreement above?

I guess the think that stands out for me is they discontinuing the Rift S. Are they distancing themselves from PC VR for good or are they hinting the Link will get to a nice enough standard to actually compete (since image compression and upscaling algorithms is getting so much better)? Because if it is the second option, and I’ll guess we’ll see hints of this soon enough with the 90Hz upgrade to link, it’s a darn compelling package. Pudding or not.

I disagree. EDIT: Actually I don’t disagree. It will sell well at such a low price point. It will be a good choice for the PC player who just wants the occasional VR experience. Maybe the player who wants VR for civilian sims and 2D for combat and online. Otherwise… It is a compromise device and compromises rarely lead the market in gaming. On one end we will soon have the PS5. It will run circles around whatever toned down tech exists inside the quest. And it can play all day in 2D with spurts in 3D if the player owns the headset. Swapping between the two modes is how most players who use VR play I think. On the other end are PC enthusiasts who already have high wattage boards powering smooth, complex visuals. This user doesn’t need a headset that’s made a few ounces heavier by having to also serve as a compromise console. The Quest will be great as a social gaming device–perfect for chopping vegetables with friends.
