nearly 2K x 2K per eye

That's pretty good. Guess it pays for skipping the first.

let me start by saying no marking video should include a phrase like "or if you are a total noobie".   i'm sorry but that word has a very negative connotation and should not be used like in a marketing video.  i was pretty much turned off immediately.

secondly, how bad is the hardware in quest 1?   the gameplay they shouldn't might have been 2k per eye but the game's geometry, textures and such looked terrible.  even worse than psvr which is really old now and wasn't a high bar when it released.

i appreciate "all in one" but not if it means already looking a gen behind.

It doesn't really have anything to do with the headset.

The GPU on the Quest is likely 1/6th as capable of the PS4.  Desktop GPUs took a bit to be reasonable. Mobile GPUs are a long ways behind (even the 7 year old PS4).

The saving graces are:
-The Quest 2 would likely have support to wirelessly connect to a PC
-something like DLSS would greatly bridge the gap
-foveated rendering.

I would guess 4 years from now, a Quest standalone would be able to compete.

I said wirelessly.  ;)
 Quest Link is still a wire unfortunately.

yeah besides a better screen in quest 2 i think i'll stick with my first gen for now.  Doesn't seems like a big enough jump to get me to upgrade just yet.  I'll likely hold out till quest 3

Crazy bit.

Facebook spends more on VR R and D than Sony as a whole spends on all R and D.

Was waiting for this. The show is today. Should be some game announcements too.

$299 is a crazy good price. Shame it's with FB.

FB is pushing hard on standalone VR. Which I expected a couple years ago.  They are dropping PCVR.  

They're showing off Quest as a whole platform right now. It can help with work, with fitness, with gaming. And there's a push for AAA games.
