Wanted Oculus Quest 2 64GB? Get 128GB At The Same Price!

Get The Latest Oculus Quest

The Oculus Quest 2 64GB is discontinued, and for a change that’s great news for virtual reality headset gaming enthusiasts who loved the original Quest.

They can play a lot more games with their new Quest 2 128GB with pre-order deliveries starting on August 24, 2021.

Experience A Lightweight VR Headset

Virtual reality (VR) has crept into the real world with Facebook keeping an expansive Quest content library. You can now have an amazing VR experience in your living room.

Facebook called back their VR headset – all 4 million of them because users complained of skin irritation. However, the great news – probably in your Facebook account – is about their 128GB release.

Most gaming enthusiasts have forgotten the skin irritation issue buoyed by the news that the lightweight new release is better at the same price.

All new buyers of the Quest 2 get a 128GB VR headset for the same price as the 64GB version with double the storage capacity.

Redefine entertainment and digital gaming. Crush your workouts, conquer leader boards, and explore your creative self in a totally immersive VR environment.

How many games can you get on your 64GB Quest?

What has changed with the 64GB going away and the 128GB taking over?

You’d have probably loaded 40 odd games into that extra 6GB space you got with your 64GB version.

Now you can double that with the new 128GB model. So, you get 12GB to load games, which is more than enough to enjoy the latest games, videos, and apps.

New Features On The 128GB Quest

The $299 price tag on the new Oculus Quest VR headset gives you all the headset storage you need for classic and new games without tapping a powerful gaming PC.

This new all-in-one has a blazing fast processor with the highest resolution display.

You need a smartphone app to work with your all-in-one VR, but can connect to a powerful gaming PC using the Oculus Link cable to enjoy Rift titles.

Can you add more memory to Oculus Quest 2?

There’s really no need to shell out that extra $100 for the 256GB model even if you do believe in future-proofing your virtual world.

Just remember that the Oculus Quest platform does not come with a microSD card slot for additional external memory.

How do you increase battery life in Oculus 2?

It comes with inbuilt AA batteries that have two and a half hours of battery life on a full charge. This power depends on the type of game and the setting that you use, whether you’re browsing the web, or watching a movie.

Extend battery life with the optional Quest 2 Elite Strap With Battery. This accessory has rigid straps to enhance comfort and fit and comes with a hammock on the back to distribute weight and extend playtime.

Is Oculus Quest 2 bad for your eyes?

Research studies have shown that wearing VR headsets, including the original Oculus Quest, does cause eye fatigue, eye strain, blurred vision, and eye discomfort in some cases.

The American Academy of Ophthalmology elaborates by saying that users can experience fatigue and eye strain when they stare at a VR screen for too long.

Does the new Oculus Quest 2 give you motion sickness?

The technology behind VR headsets has improved by leaps and bounds, but motion sickness is one area that is still to be conquered.

The new stock uses Six Degrees Of Freedom (6DOF) to attain realistic precision with head and hand tracking capabilities and does not need external sensors.

Its intuitive controls are designed with improved ergonomics. You can use its thumb rest for added stability.

The soft strap for lightweight comfort and compatibility with glasses should at least increase the time you spend gaming on your Quest 2 even if you’re one of few unfortunate ones to suffer from travel sickness.
