    I have a question for all the smart people in the comments. So I don’t know much about vr but I have a PSVR and it broke on me. If I get the quest I don’t need a pc at all like is it it’s own console??

        It's looking good for VR at last. The Quest VHS against the Index Betamax.
        Except there's room for both. I've got a Vive, but you sold the Quest to me. I'm priced out of the Index.
        I just need a warehouse now so I can do my game break thing.

                review it again in a few months after it sees a few more updates and it can run on an actual pc instead of a snapdragon processor or whatever

                                  You were the only one that thought VR was dead. No one else thought that.

                                    But can you start your own exe on this thing? Like developing a game in Unity and use the Quest to test the run mode in engine? Can it be connected to the pc?

                                    Most of the stuff you are talking about is just as same as rift s.

                                                I just can't shake the feeling that Apple's gonna come out with something soon that's gonna be the new iPhone to Oculus' and Valve's Blackberries.

                                                  I think they are probably researching now, working to get the headset downsized to a pair of glasses. They’ve done great things with AR and the next logical step would be VR.

                                                            I need some help because I don't know which one is best for me. I have a pc that can run pcvr games and which I also want to utilize but I also want to play more active games like beat sabre. the playspace behind it is like 1 by 3. Then we have a other room in which I can play which has a playspace of 2 by 2 and another room which is 3 by 3. but the problem is with the last ones is that I don't have a pc there. So what is more fitting for me? Quest or rift s?

                                                              Most games still aren’t out,

                                                              You’ll be waiting for a full real experience probably for a few more months,

                                                              Solo experience is more for the quest at the moment. I’m selling my quest because I’m waiting for games and I’ve had my quest for 4 months now, I’m sad because theirs little content don’t let anyone fool you.

The Gear VR was way better than the quest. I play like once a week for like 30minutes then I just turn it off cause I her bored easily.

This Quest VR Product seems incredible for $399-499 USD. I am going to get the Quest. Before I can understand how to use it, the newer model. will be out. I love the fact I came from Space Invaders and thought this was state of the art. You kids are spoiled LOL.

As for my own experience Ive yet to have any negatives to say except the cpu power and mhz perhaps. But neither of these things are any detriment to the experience at all. For the pricetag theyve really done something special here, and its completely portable which has been a massive plus for my family. "Oh btw I bought the Quest over if someone wants to have a go". Ever heard that said with any of the competition?

                                                                                    • Tigerwolf102

                                                                                        and the fact the the quest is oled arguably outweighs the high refresh rate, seeing as newcomers wont even notice the difference
