    I like the overview of state of the industry here. But the review did not emphasize enough the iterative, yet very big step of tetherless, inside out tracking with a smooth hardware and software interface. And yes, social isolation and looking funny with VR is a thing.

                This review was very odd. I cant relate to the whole socially awkward thing. I mean I want to game in a VR world, hence be away from the real world? Also when I game I do it alone not on the street? So WTF?

                        I can't agree with the socially awkward part. Like, you're playing VR, who gives a damn?

                            does it really need to be saved? I think the VR industry is stable and growing rapidly.

                                  Worrying about what people think about how you look is incredibly insecure and childish.

                                            There needs to be a bigger indie-game community with VR. What will make VR explode is super cheap, well polished, but much smaller scale projects. If Nintendo, for instance, took their backlog of Nintendo64 games and ported them to VR, they could create a small, cheap, portable VR console like this to play them on and people would buy it up as rapidly as as they've been buying up the Switch. I think that the "Triple-A" experience in VR is just pushing the price of the necessary hardware a bit too much for most consumers. If Facebook could somehow promote that kind of scaled down game development for the Quest, it will be the next big thing.

                                                Had hoped they would be able to bring Star trek bridge crew over to quest but that doesnt seem to be happening, maybe another star trek game instead?

                                                    Rift S was a let down. I was hoping it was going to be a significant step up from the Rift. Going to pass on the slight upgrade.

                                                        Did you really have to include the socially awkward part?
                                                        More than likely, this product is going to be played in either privacy or parties where they know it's included to the room.

                                                        This sounds more like you're trying to latch on to something to criticize about the headset.

                                                          I got to agree with what she said about Oculus compromising, that's what all products and services have to do anyhow. The greatest thing that this product delivers is an affordable and portable VR experience to the masses. Quest will greatly impact the VR industry and dozens of other industries much quicker than if people were to be slow to experience VR.
