• Facebook Gives Snapdragon XR2 VR Platform Its Consumer Debut

    14 days ago - By Android Headlines

    The launch of the Facebook-built Oculus Quest 2 marks the first appearance of the Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 VR platform. Or at least in the consumer space, according to a recent announcement from the latter company.
    Now, Qualcomm already gave out a wealth of information about its new platform back in February. Snapdragon XR2 goes well beyond VR and into every 'extended reality' space. So this more recent Snapdragon XR2 announcement puts a pinpoint focus on the Oculus Quest 2 VR headset from Facebook.
    The company indicates that the improvements and enhancements brought by the platform to...

    Oculus Quest 2 delivers the next generation of all-in-one VR

    If you've wanted to embrace VR but have yet to be convinced by the headsets on offer - or just as importantly the price of the headsets on offer - then the Facebook-owned Oculus hopes you'll give its next generation Oculus Quest a look. And you really should. There's a lot to like about the new Oculus Quest 2, which takes what was good about the original and improves on it significantly, while giving it a much more affordable starting price - just $299. That's $100 cheaper than its predecessor. It has a redesigned all-in-one form factor, new Touch controllers...

    The second-generation of the Oculus Quest has just been announced starting at $299 with eyes on replacing both the original version and the PC-connected Rift S. Facebook is opening pre-orders today as it confirmed the specs of a product that have largely been leaked to the public in recent months. Today's announcement brings many of those leaks to fruition alongside a lighter and slimmer version of the original. Oculus has managed to shave nearly 70 grams off with its new version, which is exciting when you consider that, you know, it's worn on your face. You can find full details on the...

    Oculus Quest 2 Is Official And It Can Be Yours Next Month

    14 days ago - By Android Headlines

    Facebook has officially announced the Oculus Quest 2 - it's next-gen VR headset.
    The official announcement comes just a day after videos about the headset were seemingly leaked accidentally by Facebook. In those videos were the design, some of the specs and features, and the price.
    And it looks like all of it was accurate information. What wasn't revealed in the Facebook Blueprint videos were the release date and some more specs and pricing details. However that was revealed today, and the launch is coming pretty soon. Next month in fact, so it won't be long before you can get your hands...

    Review: We do not recommend the $299 Oculus Quest 2 as your next VR system

    14 days ago - By Ars Technica

    Enlarge / It looks the same as its predecessor, but Oculus Quest 2 is quite different-and mostly in disappointing ways.
    The long-rumored Oculus Quest 2 is here, in my home, on my face. I received it earlier this month, along with news that this would be Oculus's cheapest "all-in-one" VR system yet: starting at $299 and arriving on October 16.

    Part of that comes from Facebook's aggressive policy about making Facebook social media accounts (whose terms of service revolve around a "real name" policy) mandatory to use new...
