Oculus Quest Standalone Wireless VR Headset Ships In 2019 For $399

While the announcement of Oculus Quest was certainly eye catching, with the standalone headset set to launch in Spring 2019 for $399 Dollars, it was the tech making it all possible that made it all the more impressive. The Quest headset comes with Touch controllers, and will launch with more than 50 games this spring. But to track your position, the headset has four "ultra-light" sensors on the headset's edges, which can register your position in a room relative to your surroundings.

Updated Touch controllers that use the same buttons but with a new layout and design for better hand presence will be backwards compatible with the Oculus Rift. And while company's official press release mentions a resolution of 1600 x 1400 and 64GB of built-in storage, that isn't a lot to go on.

"Oculus Go remains the easiest and most affordable way to get into VR, while Oculus Rift leverages the power of your PC to push the limits of what's possible", writes the Oculus team.

Zuckerberg also pledged to port many PC-based VR games and apps to the Quest, bringing the device closer to the higher-end PC-based Oculus Rift.

Zuckerberg said that the new Quest device represents the completion of Facebook's family of VR headsets, which includes the Rift and Go headsets. We'll believe that when we see it, too. Today, the company followed up that announcement with a second, more expensive headset meant to drive a higher class of experience.

Since the advent of virtual reality hardware, there's been a drive toward wireless. "This is the all-in-one VR headset that we have been waiting for". These are more advanced than the ones packed in with the Go; while that device only had point-and-click controllers with three degrees of motion, the Quest's feature analog sticks, triggers, and six degrees of motion control.
