Taking on a console mindset, Facebook’s Oculus has finally revealed the Oculus Quest. Featuring inside-out positional tracking, the HMD also boasts 360 degree audio, 1600 X 1440 pixels per eye resolution, adjustable lens positions, 64GB of storage memory, Quest touch controllers, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor.
The Quest is being marketed as supporting Rift-level games which means that a lot of titles we have come to know and love on the Oculus Rift are having paired down versions ported to the Quest. At launch, they are expected to have at least 50 Quest titles ready to go.
Best part of the deal? $399 for the HMD; a very competitive rate for what we hope will be an effective stand-alone HMD. Perhaps the biggest feature is what it doesn’t come with…wires!
Let’s see how things progress!
