I love my Quest, just starting off with gaming on it which is very interesting, particularly Red Hot VR. It's very good for streaming movies and TV shows from my hard drive to. I can't believe I've gone from upgrading the memory in my 16K Spectrum to 48K just by plugging the chips into the motherboard, to Atari ST, them Amiga to PC and Xbox One to the Quest. I have to be honest it's been one Hell of a technological blast from seeing one of my classmates building a mail order ZX80 to the present day. I feel privileged to have been part of it all.

You really don't need the 128GB. I recently purchased the 64GB and games generally take around 1GB each.

Good price. Even better when the pc link is out soon

The refresh rate is a little vomtastic at the minute, I'm hoping with link they eventually let it run at 90Hz since the display can do it and if you are on PC so is the hardware.
Ye hopefully. It’s capable of 90, just locked down.
I have the Rift S, 80mhz. It’s nice. considering replacing it with the quest purely for portability and pc.

^^I I am very interested to see just how this works because i have tried a few of the streaming app on the Oculus Go just out of curiosity and they were indeed playable, you could actually play Elite Dangerous on the oculus Go via wireless streaming, and the better your connection the better game ran, so this link cable has my attention at the moment as i have the Vive and the CV1, but a Quest that could offer PCVR, manual IPD, oled screens, reduced SDE and mobile vr gaming would be a amazing step for VR overal, so i am watching this closely.

It's funny I suffer from really bad motion sick ess in some games but have never had an issue with the oculus quest refresh rate. I wouldn't hold your breath on them unlocking 90Hz though. Something to do with the legal limit of RF emmisions? Could have got that completely wrong. Basically Oculus have said "maybe some clever people in the community wpudl be able to figure it out" can't wait for pc link to go live though!
As someone who had the Go and felt underwhelmed, is this a major step up? I love the idea of VR but the viewing quality always seemed poor, like watching a large screen VHS tape.

I believe Carmack said that that likely won't be happening as they'd have to recertify it.
To make it PCVR you're going to need to buy Oculus' $80 cable or hope that a 3rd party makes a cheaper alternative soon. Its highly likely that you can't simply use a standard USB cable

At the Oculus Connect developer conference on Wednesday, the VR company announced Oculus Link. The software update, expected later this year, will link the Quest to a PC with a single USB-C cable, and will work as a headset to play PC-based content.25 Sep 2019

Apparently....
Looking to buy one but wondering if anyone knows if the Oculus link will allow the xbox one features that the rift has?

nope, it would have to be recertified as a consumer device for that refresh rate in all the markets it is sold.

Its the length that matters and when they had to go fibre to achieve 5m length and maintain high bandwidth.

Type C cables are a minefield at the moment as specs are all over the place, cheap, suitable shorter ones will be found by the community in no time

This clinches it for me too. I'm not going to get the 128 GB version. Hopefully some more places will get stock of the 64GB version where I can get a deal before Christmas. (I still think this was a good deal for the 128GB version if you want it, but it probably isn't needed, especially as games will be stored in the cloud anyway and content is relatively limited at the moment.)

Just be aware Argos on eBay do NOT package anything before posting. Everything goes out as is and is at the mercy of a Royal Mail.

Ridiculous policy IMHO. Depending on what you order, this matters

And? That's not an impossible task, as I said I hope they eventually do it. If they refresh the device at some point it's a more than doable if expensive task(and it's not like they make money anyway), but given the advantages it's a pretty obvious plus point if they decide to discontinue Rift production before they have a substantial upgrade ready.

Until they do it, I'm not getting one, frankly the facts don't bear out against Oculus claims that sub 90Hz is just as good, clearly it's not and 120Hz+ has actual advantages and make a tangible difference. If I was on the fence about VR it would be different, but as a first gen adopter I would have went with it at 90Hz, but won't take a downgrade.

It depends what you are using it for. Watching films on a giant screen is going to be limited by the resolution of the headset so no this will not be an improvement on the GO, however for 6DOF (move around in VR) the quest is excellent. Watching films is probably still best done on a monitor or TV. It will be a long time before we get the resolution to do big screen VR with the same visual quality as a flat screen.

No incentive to do it.

It would affect S sales. They are selling the units as fast as they make them as is.

It was never even hinted at OC
Shame they aren't also doing the 64gb version. Heat for this though.

Did you read my post at all? Particularly the bit about discontinuing the rift?

Sales at the moment are strong, but volumes still at niche levels. The writing is on the wall for rift, they are only really continuing sales on it as essentially an AB test for some of the features, unless they have something totally incompatible hardware wise in future iterations the rift is dead.

They also kind of did given that was where JC mentioned it. It's not like this was some fan theory, the Oculus CTO was the one that brought it up.

Again they wont do this due to having to go through recertification again.

Even if someone in the community could unlock it the Quest has had a kill switch installed for dev mode since the last update so any changes on the Quest side can be permanently locked down.

Yeah the Go is a great little bit of kit for watchiong media, love it, and even better most media apps have options to alter colour, brighthness and contrast, which helps somewhat to negate that LCD panels deficiencies when it comes to deep blacks and colours, but it is just a shame that these option have never be made avalible in other gaming VR HMDs, moreso any HMD with a LCD panel, as they would really help a lot on these matters.

But i did try the Go with Elite D via a few of the wireless streaming apps, and it did work, i mean if your wifi connection of good enough and the Go is all you have and you want play seated games like ED or American Truck sim in VR then this will work for you........ and i wonder if this new Link cable will also work on the Go, yes it is only 3dof but for seated sims it would be fine.

I have both PCVR (HP WMR at 90Hz) and the Qculus Quest and I personally don't notice any different in the refresh rate. However, what I do notice is that I can be up and running within a couple of minutes in any room in the house (or firends house) due to the lack of cables with the Quest and the ease of the inside-out tracking. This is an absolute huge advantage.

If people are on the fence and have the money spare, go for it, you won't be dissappointed.

As others have said, the 128GB is overkill as the games are relatively small.
I bought this deal 33 days ago as I thought it would be a great fanily xmas present for myself and my two boys , 9 and 11.

Probably should have researched it a bit more as you cannot have profiles on it. It's pretty much a single user device. Unless anyone knows different?

Real shame and now thinking of selling it on.

Mileage varies, you can certainly get used to it over time as even 90hz was a compromise. Definitely worth trying first, you certainly notice the difference with 120 and 144hz in VR for the better, higher the Hz is definitely more comfortable.

All depends on your setup, if you've got dedicated VR space then quick setup is less of an issue. And it's a great second headset, I wouldn't buy one as a main headset if you are properly into VR. But if you want something casual it's a good choice, and if you already have an Index or pimax etc it's a good choice if you are a vrholic.

Also looking like there will be a 90hz mod by end of year according to the latest news.
