Anyone have Oculus Quest?

The family is considering getting the Oculus Quest 2. Since Christmas is coming in a couple of months, I figured I should start doing some research so I know what I'm getting myself into, and possibly order one in case it sells out before the holidays.

What kind of limitations will I get with the 64GB vs the 256GB? Is there an expandable slot?

Popular games/apps?

Can't really help, but I've been considering VR as well. Mainly for Microsoft Flight Sim. I don't have a Facebook account and I recently read that Oculus is now facebook mandatory even if you have one already. Or at least it will be soonish. That is a major no from me.


Holding out hope that the HP Reverb G2 is good whenever that comes out. next few months maybe?

That was one of the big "no"s for me, as well. But I'm curious about the results for anyone who has one - how do they like it?

SI

I have owned one for a bit now. It's pretty amazing and what sold me in originally getting it was because it was cordless. I have the first version though.

It is the 256GB model and I don't believe all the current games in the library would fill it up. 64GB is actually fine since most people rotate games anyway. But I don't know if in the future they will allow for downloadable videos from the streaming services like other devices.

Lately I have been into the games that inadvertently work you out. Beat Saber, Audio Trip, Fit XR, and Pistol Whip are getting the most play right now.

Vader Immortal is a done very well and I hear good things about Arizona Sunshine (zombie game).

The other benefit about the device is watching some movies as feeling like you are sitting in a movie theater.

And yet another benefit is that you can now play your Steam VR games on the device using either their Oculus Link cable or a third party. This will make you wired, but you will have a larger selection of games to choose from.

The negative about the new version is that they are forcing you to use the Facebook account on it. The first generation doesn't have this, but they recently released a patch stating that sometime later in the year, we would be forced to do so too.

Walking Dead is super eerie and intense. I like it more than AZ Sunshine.

There are a lot of games that are kid appropriate. Some might not be depending on your view of "kid appropriate." But there should be enough of a library there for a kid to enjoy.

Facebook owns oculus, so you have to do some things through a facebook account. It is not that big of a deal.

cool. Thanks.

He is in that age where he isn't really interested in toys except for legos occasionally. He is getting a phone, but my wife wants a few more things for him.

Picked up one... Do they have sales on games like a Steam does? i.e. I'll end up getting Beat Saber eventually for when having people over, should I just pay the $40 now?

Also, any off the path game recommendations? I figure I'll go with Arizona Sunshine & some of the Star Wars titles as I get my feet wet.

I'm going to put this on my BF 2021 want list.

Of course, that will means I will need to get a beefy PC with good GPU.

Actually, the Quest does not need a PC (which is why we got it).

The tradeoff is that it isn't as powerful as the ones that are running off of beefed up PCs

So we finally picked this up when my daughter turned 10. I had been reading about how Oculus is for ages 13+, and that any younger, you will need to limit usage time due to their still developing eyes, yadda yadda...

That said, my daughter can't seem to get enough of Job Simulator.

For the parents, we're playing Beat Saber, of course. And on the suggestion of some of my friends, I'll probably pick up Sports Scramble and/or FitXR

Anyone have TopGolf w/Pro Putt?

My son is enjoying the Top Golf game, but I haven't played it yet.

The Quest 2 is hands down the best value in VR. My wife, who has little to no interest in video games, has put a few hours into The Room VR and wants to try out Beat Saber.
