Social media giant Facebook has unveiled its latest virtual reality headset, the Oculus Quest 2.
The firm revealed the hardware yesterday, alongside new Touch controllers. The tech boasts higher-resolution screens with 50 per cent more pixels than the original Quest. Like its predecessor, the Quest 2 is a wireless VR headset and doesn't need to be tethered to a PC to use. The tech comes in at $299 and will be shipping on October 13th.
The Quest 2 rolling out also means that Facebook will stop selling the original headset in this line of VR devices. The Quest launched in May 2019. Within its first year in the market, consumers spent more than $100m on Quest content. 20 titles on the platform have made $1m in revenue, while another 10 have generated more than $2m.
Oculus Quest also helped drive Facebook's non-ad revenue up by 80 per cent year-on-year for the three months ending March 31st, 2020.
