Things have been a bit quiet since Facebook bought Oculus Rift for $3 billion back in 2014 but now they have revealed Oculus Quest, a new VR headset that doesn’t require a PC, console, or a mobile phone. “This is it,” Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said during his keynote speech, “This is the all-in-one VR headset that we have been waiting for.”
The 64GB version will cost $399 and includes two Touch controllers, built in audio, and a screen resolution of 1600 x 1440. A Star Wars game has been announced as an exclusive and there will be fifty other titles available at launch, mostly games that are already available on the other Oculus sets. No UK pricing has been revealed but expect it to be the nearer £400 than £300.
The headset has custom inside-out-tracking technology which allows it to work in much larger rooms than current headsets.
