Oculus Quest VR headset unveiled, supports Star Wars: Vader Immortal

Facebook today announced Oculus Quest, its first all-in-one VR gaming system during the Oculus Connect 5 keynote. This is not the case with the new Oculus Quest virtual reality headset.

The headset offers entirely self-contained virtual reality with no PC connection or external tracking devices needed whatsoever. It features six degrees of freedom touch controllers, state of the art optics and built in audio.

The company also shared that 80 per cent of Oculus Go users don't actually own a Rift or Gear VR, which suggests that the mobile friendly Oculus option is bringing more people in the VR ecosystem. Santa Cruz will launch next year under the name "Oculus Quest", with plenty of developer support and some solid launch titles, including Robo Recall, SUPERHOT and even a new Star Wars game. For starters, the controllers feature tiny infrared LEDs, which are tracked by the cameras in the headset.

The Quest should go on sale in Spring of 2019 starting at $399.

'This is the wireless virtual reality experience we have been waiting for, ' Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said as he unveiled the new hardware and reaffirmed Facebook's commitment to virtual reality.

He added: "'You have got to wait for your opportunity", he said when asked about not starting a league game so far this season. Mauricio Pochettino can not understand why people get so obsessed with team selection in this country.

Oculus Quest looks to change that.

As for other components, the Quest makes use of four built-in, wide-angle sensors that allow for 6DOF movement without the need for external sensors. For starters, we don't know the computing specs of the headset.

Talking comparisons, the Oculus Quest includes the same screens as seen in the Oculus Go, with a resolution of 1600 x 1440 per eye, plus the option to adjust lens spacing. Indeed, the system uses its Oculus Insight technology to circumvent this.

Finally, Oculus Go is also getting live streams of National Basketball Association games through the Oculus Venues app, thanks to a cooperation with NextVR. Sure they give you VR, and you can watch movies and maybe play some games, but the graphics are practically N64 quality and you're constantly mindful of the fact that you have little more than a fancy phone strapped a few centimetres from your eyeballs.
