    HTC Vivecon 2021 May 11th and 12th

    Yeah, the OG Vive was their best HMD, but that was only due to Valve doing all of the RND. The Vive Pro wasn't bad but I agree way overpriced. I expect this to be overpriced as well. If this is higher than $499 then it will fail. I'm just curious to see what they have to offer. It will be...

    Oculus Will Sell You a Quest 2 Without Facebook Integration for an Extra $400

    Did they reverse it? If you don't mind sharing I'd like to know why? @Everyone - Just want to say this is why I really enjoy our community. We can discuss something and listen to both sides. I think we all made great points. :toast:

    HTC Vivecon 2021 May 11th and 12th

    Vivecon is set for May 11th and 12th. They have been teasing a new VR HMD. All the leaks so far haven't be promising, but today's leak does! New leak first image which makes it look like it might only have to front facing cameras

    Oculus Will Sell You a Quest 2 Without Facebook Integration for an Extra $400

    But it's not a peripheral device anymore. It's a All in One system now and just like every other system it has a login. I mean will people need cell phones in the near future? Apple is working on VR/AR glasses and should have something in the next 2 years. I don't like or dis-like any one of the...

    Oculus Will Sell You a Quest 2 Without Facebook Integration for an Extra $400

    It sounds a lot like we draw it with FB. Let's keep a blind eye on everyone else. Anyway, I'm off to bed. :toast:

    Oculus Will Sell You a Quest 2 Without Facebook Integration for an Extra $400

    What big tech company isn't doing this a long with FB? If you own a smart phone you are carrying around a microphone, camera, and gps with access to a network to send this information. I think we are way past caring now. I mean if you don't have a smart phone then everyone around you does and...

    Oculus Will Sell You a Quest 2 Without Facebook Integration for an Extra $400

    Here is another thought, how about not telling people what they can and can't do.

    [Official] Oculus Quest 2

    Honestly, you don't feel the weight and it relieves the weight on the front of your face. Trust me I tried on my shirt and the wire still gets in the way.. haha but like I said the counter balance is great. I almost wish I would have got one a little heavier.

    Oculus Will Sell You a Quest 2 Without Facebook Integration for an Extra $400

    Extortion? Can you play a Playstation 4,5 or Xbox One, x without a PSN, XBL account (Honest question I don't own either.)? You have to have an account to have a smartphone. It's the same thing. When you log in to your Quest 2 with your account it's not like logging into FB. It's just the Oculus...

    [Official] Oculus Quest 2

    Here is my setup. It's very light but a good counterbalance. It's the lightest 10000mah pack I could find. I can even charge the battery pack and leave it connected to my quest 2 because of the PD feature.

    Oculus Will Sell You a Quest 2 Without Facebook Integration for an Extra $400

    Join me, and togethe.... j/k lol It's ok not to like FB. I never said I liked them. I'm just pointing out that at the moment you can buy a great piece of hardware that doesn't have all the things people are worried about with FB. The front cameras are black and white and while you can make out...

    Oculus Will Sell You a Quest 2 Without Facebook Integration for an Extra $400

    The Rift S is only 80hz, but yeah you are right about FO4VR, Skyrim VR, and NMS. Do you use any mods for the first 2? Mod's really help those games out. I need to try them with the new v28 update.

    Oculus Will Sell You a Quest 2 Without Facebook Integration for an Extra $400

    I think with ASW you would hit it and not notice it. ASW made wireless so much better. Also, you can set it to 90hz. The bump in resolution and 10hz more over the Rift S's 80hz is a nice bump. Now, is it enough to upgrade probably not if you don't care about having a standalone hmd. I really...

    Oculus Will Sell You a Quest 2 Without Facebook Integration for an Extra $400

    But you don't have to use FB to use the Quest 2. It's just the login system for Quest 2. You have to go into settings and turn on let Facebook friends with Quest2's see you or you can open it up for everyone but by default it's set to only you. Which even if you do set it to FB friends it's...

    Oculus Will Sell You a Quest 2 Without Facebook Integration for an Extra $400

    The Quest 2 is being sold at a loss. Look at other Standalone HMD's they can't compete in price or offer the end-user experience or the game catalog that the Quest 2 offers. Just some hindsight. We do have a new standalone VR HMD coming but no word on price yet. It's the DecaGear VR HMD. I'll be...

    [Official] Oculus Quest 2

    Yeah, no way would I buy a Valve Index now with the Quest 2 only being $299. I'd love to have the Valve controllers but the failure rate on them is way too high. Plus, with Oculus added 120hz and Air-Link it's a no-brainer. Also, HP dropped the ball with G2. The controllers are better than...

    [Official] Oculus Quest 2

    I 3d printed a nice DIY Elite strap (I printed mine at a higher resolution) for the back and it works really well. I use it when I have to fly. It's much easier to get through TSA.. haha You can buy this one on amazon. It really made the comfort surprisingly better. I added padding to mine. You...

    [Official] Oculus Quest 2

    Awesome! It works great as is but there are a few upgrades to make the experience even better. I have upgraded mine a lot. lol I'll list out my upgrades to mine so far. The standard head strap is ok but you can get better. The most popular one right now is the HTC Vive DAS. It's expensive but I...

    [Official] Oculus Quest 2

    Wow! I just got the v28 update yesterday and I can't get over how much better Air-Link works! It also brings infinite desktop and 120hz mode. The store doesn't use 120hz yet only apps. I need to pick up a 120hz mode app to test it out. It looks like Cubism has been updated to 120hz mode. Has...

    Samsung Updating Odyssey G9 Premium Gaming Monitor - MiniLED Technology, First DisplayHDR 2000 Certification?

    I just bought an Odyssey G5 32" and love it. I wanted the G9 but I doubt my RTX 2070 will push it. It does a really good job with the G5, but I feel like you would need a 3090 or better to push the G9.

    E3 2021 Announced As An Online Only Event

    It would be awesome if we could visit booths in VR. Usually, some content creator walks through with a 3d camera.

    $20,000 Microsoft Flight Simulator Rig Is More Expensive Than Some Real Planes

    This is cool but VR is much better over the 3x monitors. You would still want the flight stick and seat with maybe the Motion Platform, but all of the panels, gages, and stuff you don't need in VR. They are part of the Plane you are in while in VR.

    Microsoft's Acquisition of ZeniMax Media Has Been Approved by Regulators

    This is good news! John Carmack has already reached out to MS to officially bring Doom 3, Quake, etc to VR... This would be great. DrBeef has done a great job but I can only imagine Carmack would make it even better.
