What makes the valve one better?

off the top of my head, the screens are higher resolution, and it probably has more tracking going on ... it's running off your computer processing power (graphics card) so more pixels for your eyes and shit. but it's way more expensive and requires your high end computer to run.

the Quest 2 is a stand alone, wireless device

What other stand alones are out there?

Has anyone tried both back to back to rate the cost/effect gap?
the original Quest is really the only main stream standalone (I think?) everything else either requires a cell phone (pretty shitty for anything game related) or a computer to run

Purchased :cool: Quest is great for what it does, simple VR anywhere and for anyone.

Let anyone play beat saber and they are hooked.

Some insights here about your prospects for your device if you go with Oculus.

Personally I'd just get an index.

So take 30 seconds and make a fake account
Except as you can read in the article I just posted, Facebook/Oculus are distancing themselves from PC and other platforms, only allowing connection through Oculus Link, and establishing a system where developers will eventually be asked to develop for that platform, making the Quest VR System a standalone item, not a piece of hardware you connect to a computer/elsewhere.

It's pretty clear that the goal/plan here is for integration with Facebook Payments etc.

It's not as simple as you're making it out to be.
