With most people all over the world glued to the couches in their homes due to the coronavirus pandemic, there isn’t really much to do besides the usual eat-sleep-wake up routine that most of us have probably gotten used to. Many have turned to video games to escape the boredom but even that has its limits.
However, thanks to technology, we now have virtual reality – a computer-generated system which makes use of simulations to mimic real life, opening the door to many fantastic possibilities for the video game industry. Just recently, the Facebook-owned company Oculus – one of the top VR developers in the world, has launched the latest addition to its Oculus Quest product line, the much-anticipated Oculus Quest 2.
A refreshing change to the signature black color scheme of its predecessor – the Oculus Quest, the Oculus Quest 2 switches things up by opting for a white colorway which screams next generation. The VR headset also has an upgraded 6GB memory and a storage capacity of up to 256 GB.
Groundbreaking features such as an 1832×1920 pixel resolution per eye, a default 72 Hz refresh rate, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 Platform CPU all make the Oculus Quest 2 a strong competitor in the VR market.
Virtual Reality for the Masses
The 64 GB base model version of the Oculus Quest 2 is currently priced at a sweet deal of $299, making it one of the most affordable VR headsets for sale in 2020 – which is insanely cheap when it comes to the average VR market standards.
With popular games such as Beat Saber and Star Wars: Vader Immortal now available for the Quest 2, this is a clear sign that Virtual Reality is finally creeping into the consumer-friendly zone – making it a definitive hit all over the world, especially now during the holiday season.
