CES 2019: The Oculus Quest Will Be The Headset That Gets Me Into VR | Digital Trends
Portable, user-friendly, and more affordable than its technologically advanced older brother, the Oculus Quest has hardware that's just good enough. It could be the mid-range headset that fully converts me to a VR fanatic.
The Quest is a true all-in-one headset. There's no high-end gaming PC, no heavy, tangled wires or tedious external sensors, and you don't need to convert your basement into a VR den. Finally, I put on a VR headset that didn't make me feel like the Predator. That might sound cool -- and it is at first -- but once the novelty wears off it becomes repetitive, claustrophobic, and a little sweaty.
During the demo, we played two games -- Super Hot and Project Tennis Scramble -- both of which worked without a hitch. That, too, is an important point. Earlier wire-free headsets, more of which relied on smartphones, had serious issues with both smartphone heat management and overall performance. These issues aren't present in Oculus Quest, and the two games we tried felt just as smooth as they would on an HTC Vive.
