Facebook Announces $399 Oculus Quest VR Headset

27 September 2018

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has a new virtual reality headset, the Oculus Quest, that he is hoping will jumpstart the nascent VR industry that has yet to catch on with mainstream consumers.

The executive said that Facebook's long-term goal remains on reaching 1 billion VR users, but he joked that the company is far behind the lofty goal and is only 1% finished with its objectives.

Some other titles shown off during the keynote included Lone Echo II, Space Junkies, Stormland, Vox Machinae, Project Tennis Scramble, Superhot VR, Face Your Fears 2, Dead & Buried, Deflector, Final Assault, and an entirely new Star Wars project built specifically for Quest called Vader Immortal. The Oculus Quest will be available in Spring 2019 for $399 for the 64GB version with Touch controllers. 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.

Though Zuckerberg notes that they were considering creating new controllers for the Quest, feedback from VR users led the company to instead bundle the new headset with the Oculus Touch controllers.

The Quest looks slightly different than the Santa Cruz, coming with a more curved design than either the Go or Rift.

Oculus vice president Hugo Barra said Quest combined the capabilities of Rift and the portability of Go, the current headgear in the company's lineup, with a strong focus on games.
