Facebook announces Oculus Quest 2, kills Rift

Facebook has been taking to the virtual stage for its Facebook Connect conference, part of which was to give details of the latest additions (and a subtraction) to the Oculus range of VR headsets.

The big news is the arrival of the Oculus Quest 2, an enhanced version of the last Oculus flagship, which will premiere on eyeballs from October 13, starting at $299 for the 64GB version. All versions have 6GB of RAM.

As we’ve discussed before, the Quest 2 will be the first headset that will use Facebook’s login system by default, a feature that hasn’t played well with existing Oculus users who will also have to make the switch in the coming years.

The Quest 2 offers integration with some of the features that weren’t around when its predecessor was launched, and boasts a number of design tweaks including softer head straps and the addition of a thumb rest to the redesigned controllers.

The visuals have received a big upgrade, offering a 1834×1920 pixel screen for each eye, capable of up to 90Hz refresh rates – even when streamed from a PC. Storage capacity starts at 64GB, with the top model maxing out at 256GB. It might have been nice to see a little more available for the max capacity model

As ever, as easily as Facebook giveth, it also taketh away. The Oculus Rift S, the last surviving edition of the original head mounted display is being discontinued, though Oculus say it’s still working with developers to create PC-based VR games. This follows the low-end Oculus Go model, which was discontinued earlier in the summer, but remains great for watching VR porn.

The other big hardware announcement was the arrival of Oculus sunglasses, developed alongside Ray Ban. We’re not entirely sure what to expect from these yet, beyond the fact that they’re on the drawing board, and the odds on them being able to run VRBangers8K content are small.

All this is part of Project Aria, a wider initiative by Facebook to try and overcome the problems of using VR in everyday settings.
