A new model of the Oculus Quest 2 virtual reality headset has been released today and can be ordered now (see it on Amazon). While this is not a generational step in hardware, the new model doubles the amount of storage space you get for the price. Now the baseline model has 128 GB of storage and costs $ 299, which replaces the previous version, which had 64 GB for the same price.
The 128 GB Oculus Quest 2
All new Oculus Quest 2 headsets – the 128 GB model and the newly produced 256 GB – also have a new silicone face interface. In late July, Facebook pulled Oculus Quest 2 headsets off the market after some owners reported skin irritation. Owners of the original Quest 2 hardware can request a free silicone cover here.
As for the Oculus Quest 2 itself, it’s a fully wireless VR headset that gives a surprising amount of bang for the buck. It comes with the headset and two controllers, and that’s it. Unlike all other major VR headsets, no external sensors are required.
That said, you can connect it to a computer, either with a cord or wirelessly, with accessories. That way, you can use it as a standard VR headset and play games from other online stores.
