Additionally, all Oculus devices will require a Facebook account to use hereon out, so if you value your privacy you'll want to perhaps look into a different headset manufacturer altogether.

You can also pick up the Oculus Link Cable for $79 Dollars, which will work with the Oculus Quest 2 just like it does with the original Oculus Quest.

With the Oculus Quest 2, Facebook is making its main VR headset better - and less expensive - than ever: The base model starts at $US300. Additionally, you can use Oculus Link to play PC VR titles, getting access to Hal-Life Alyx and others at the cost of having to plug in.

Horizon VR, now in beta, is a virtual reality social world from Facebook that is a bit like "Ready Player One" but more cartoonish, where people can attend concerts, games and standup performances.

The all-new Oculus Quest 2 teases more performance under the hood thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 platform used in it. "Our goal with the original Quest was to bring standalone VR to as many people as possible", Oculus said. There is a 50 percent increase in pixels, that is 1832 x 1920 per eye. Oculus is also bringing Oculus products to Japanese retail stores for the first time with Quest 2, including Bic Camera, Yamada Denki, Yodobashi Camera, and GEO.

In the U.S., you can pre-order the Quest 2 from Best Buy and Walmart.
