                          But can you start your own exe on this thing? Like developing a game in Unity and use the Quest to test the run mode in engine? Can it be connected to the pc?

                          Most of the stuff you are talking about is just as same as rift s.

                                      I just can't shake the feeling that Apple's gonna come out with something soon that's gonna be the new iPhone to Oculus' and Valve's Blackberries.

                                        I think they are probably researching now, working to get the headset downsized to a pair of glasses. They’ve done great things with AR and the next logical step would be VR.

                                              With link its looking like a very good option being the same price as the oculous rift s granted it does have 1 less sensor but it has a higher resolution display and its oled

                                                  I need some help because I don't know which one is best for me. I have a pc that can run pcvr games and which I also want to utilize but I also want to play more active games like beat sabre. the playspace behind it is like 1 by 3. Then we have a other room in which I can play which has a playspace of 2 by 2 and another room which is 3 by 3. but the problem is with the last ones is that I don't have a pc there. So what is more fitting for me? Quest or rift s?

                                                    Guyssss don’t fall for this omg,

                                                    Theirs about 20 games and most are short,

                                                    Most games still aren’t out,

                                                    You’ll be waiting for a full real experience probably for a few more months,

                                                    Solo experience is more for the quest at the moment. I’m selling my quest because I’m waiting for games and I’ve had my quest for 4 months now, I’m sad because theirs little content don’t let anyone fool you.

                                                      I'm sorry but the quest sucks. There's not a lot of good games and the only game I play is Altspace that's it. The Gear VR was way better than the quest. I play like once a week for like 30minutes then I just turn it off cause I her bored easily.

                                                          custom maps. basically they can tell you what you put on your machine. It's more like your renting a machine and oculus maintians control.

I am going to get the Quest. Before I can understand how to use it, the newer model. will be out. I love the fact I came from Space Invaders and thought this was state of the art. You kids are spoiled LOL.

As for my own experience Ive yet to have any negatives to say except the cpu power and mhz perhaps. But neither of these things are any detriment to the experience at all. For the pricetag theyve really done something special here, and its completely portable which has been a massive plus for my family. "Oh btw I bought the Quest over if someone wants to have a go". Ever heard that said with any of the competition?

                                                                          • Tigerwolf102

                                                                          • I don’t like Lgbt people

                                                                              and the fact the the quest is oled arguably outweighs the high refresh rate, seeing as newcomers wont even notice the difference

I have a pretty decent vr capable pc and my rift runs fine on it. I don't travel much and have never really wanted to bring my vr headset out with me. What should I get, Oculus Quest or Oculus Rift S?
                                                                                      I'd really appreciate it since I've never really found a straight forward yes or no answer to this question.
