    Mark Z already confirmed that a Rift 2 will be released. Hopefully we'll get more info on that of course.
    I am betting that is all that will be said about it. Their focus is elsewhere currently I think.

    Yep.  Superhot looks good.  You never know, might feel "different" in a Quest.

    Probably not though.

    Why is this man saying "cool", and "sick"?

    I'm inclined to agree. The current goal is to push Oculus Quest. Too much glorifying of the CV2 would harm Quest potential sales. This is all long-term strategy.

    They also openly stated that current Rift projects are being worked on with releases through 2020.

    When can we pre-order Quest. We knew this was coming, let it have its moment. Should be great.

    Yep, this Connect is all about Quest.

    Looks pretty good to me actually and at that price, will be a buy for me.

    Absolutely a must-buy for me. WIll be pre-ordering once available. I like how it embraces Mixed Reality as a platform.

    I do like the res and the 64GB:

    "Now you can enjoy the best that VR gaming has to offer, starting at $399 USD for a 64GB headset—with the convenience and portability of all-in-one VR.

    Quality Meets Comfort
    Oculus Quest includes the same best-of-class optics as Oculus Go with a display resolution of 1600x1440 per eye, while incorporating a lens spacing adjustment to help maximize visual comfort. And we’ve improved our built-in audio, so you get high-quality, immersive sound with even deeper bass."
    Source:  https://www.oculus.com/blog/introducing-oculus-quest-our-first-6dof-all-in-one-vr-system-launching-spring-2019/





    Personally I think I'll wait for the CV2 (or get a new fresh CV1), but Quest does look *much* more interesting to me than GO.  

    Maybe unintended, but at $399 Quest could be a serious competitor to XBox One/X and PS4 (if I was a kid/teenager with $400 I know what I'd choose ;-)

    I might have to purchase something like a Piemax, as a stop gap to CV2. If SC is coming in the spring of next year, then CV2 isn't coming in 2019, because they haven't even mentioned it. More like 2020 and that's to long away for me. I need a better resolution soon and hope Piemax isn't a total waste of time.

    Yeah that is the only thing, no really great alternatives at least at this time.
    Will see how Pimax does.

    Not many great alternatives because it's bloody difficult to make these, Oculus has billions of investment and as the guy on stage is saying, years away from consumer tech.

    Yes, you can make a headset like Star VR but that is nowhere near mainstream with a supercomputer running it and the cost being prohibitive for the average user.

    At this point I'd just like to see an update to CV1, if Cv2 isn't coming in 2019. Something like a better resolution CV1 with the OculusGO optics. Looks like even foveated Render is still some way away.

    Oculus CV1 Pro anyone :D

    Argh, stream started cutting out during Abrash's speech. I'm at work anyway, so hopefully they have it all up on YouTube by the time I get home later.

    I think i agree with others although they may talk about emerging vr tech I don't think we will be given too many clues about cv2. I think 2020 is most likely release year. 

    I think i'm prepared to be patient maybe if it takes a bit longer it just means it will have cooler technology.

    Pimax talk? lol

    I wonder when people on this forum will actually own a Pimax and speak to it first-hand, instead of using it as a "where's the CV2" soundbite.

    That could work - I'd love to keep everything as it is and just get 1600x1440 per eye!

    Hate to say it, but could they scrap CV2, if SC does great when it's released next year? Why bother with CV2 if SC does great?

    Sadly the 1.31 release of Home 2.0 leaving beta still doesn't give us a better base house. That one is annoying, the columns, step, etc. I might actually use it if there was a better base mesh.

    Well I enjoyed Abrash's presentation, despite the interruptions.
    Was anything worth while said after the audio bit? That's as far as I could watch before it died.

  • snowdogsnowdog Posts: 7,493 Valuable Player
    Well I was expecting another tease of the CV2 at least but we didn't even get that!!! Very disappointed tbh.

    Could still be released in 2019 but it'll be H2 instead of H1. If they wait until 2020 then I'll probably get a Pimax 5K+ as long as Pimax don't take the piss regarding the price of the thing.
