Facebook ditching PC-only Rift VR development, Oculus Quest 2 priced and dated

Following the official reveal of Oculus Quest 2 earlier this week, Facebook has shared price and release date details for its latest all-in-one virtual reality effort, while also confirming it will no longer be focussing on PC-only hardware, meaning an end to sales of Rift S in 2021.

Starting with Oculus Quest 2, it’ll launch next month on 10th October with a price tag of £299, making it £100 less than the original model, despite its beefier specs.

It features a single panel display offering a resolution of 1832 x 1920 pixels per eye (capable of supporting 90 Hz), built-in IPD adjustment with three settings, 6GB Ram, 3D positional audio, a Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 processor, and 64GB of built-in storage. A model with 256GB of built-in storage is also available for an extra £100.
