  • If you can only get one VR headset and have ANY disire to play away from your computer the Quest is the headset to buy period. If you are never going to want to play VR away from a computer then the Rift S is the headset to get period. Now that's…
  • I don't think you're ever going to see a 32GB version sold new again unless you get VERY lucky. If you want a Go at all you need to buy it the moment you can because Oculus has officially announced that they are ending support for the Go. They will …
  • Thanks for the reply. As soon as the left hand controller comes back in stop I'm going to order them both.

I agree 100% about Oculus making it more obvious about cross-buy. It shouldn't take any effort on my part to find out if a game is cross-buy. Take Steam for example. Everything you need to know about a game is in a side bar. If a g…
  • Is Phantom: Covert Ops cross buy?  I see on various sites that have reviewed the game that it is cross buy. When I look at the games page in the Oculus phone app and PC app for the Rift S it doesn't have both platforms listed like cross buy games n…

 The forums are to help answer question yes and the answer is already in these forums. The problem is that most people don't bother to spend a split second to search for the answer and would rather just be lazy and have it plopped …
  • Here is the best tip you can get if you're just starting out in tech. Learn to use Google. Go to Google and type in this "bigscreen VR oculus go stream". This will give you the information you need. Google will have the answers to pretty …

I agree 100%. If you could still purchase the cable for a CV1 I wouldn't have purchased one now. I never get rid of my video game stuff. I still have my very first console, the NES, and I plan on keeping my Rift S until the day I d…
  • I'm sorry to say but you're not going to get very good performance at all for PCVR with the graphics contained in that APU. It's barely passable at 720p for non-VR games released 5 years ago and that's with every setting turned to low. The Ryzen 5 3…

  • If it is not included in the link below it is not officially supported. https://support.oculus.com/444256562873335/?locale=en_US Now I'm not saying it will not work. It might but unless someone that has the same setup as you can confirm that it wo…

I agree 100%. I bought the game when it was on sale recently. I actually bought the Serious Sam bundle that includes all of the VR Serious Sam games.  I tried playing the first Serious Sam in VR and while it was a cool nostalgia tr…
  • There really needs to be a sticky for this info. I see post like this all the time. Use an inventory tracker like HotStock.io .They somehow keep track of the inventory of many vendors like Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Oculus etc... You just sign up and set…
  • I support this post. I don't think a popular app should be removed especially when there will not be a replacement for Go users. At this point the only option it seems like people have to hang out with a Go is Bigscreen VR and it requires someone to…
  • We are either dealing with someone with an IQ well below 100 or a child. Either way they are never going to be happy because they can't understand that they are the problem and not the hardware. I have let me niece and nephews use my Quest for days…
  • I looked and I didn't find anything. If you have a 3D printer you could use an Oculus GO head strap. It's all cloth so it would seem to work for you. But again you would need to design and 3D print some adapters for it to work.
  • I was able to run games well on a i7-3770k, 16GB of RAM, and a 980 ti before I bought a new PC recently. If that computer can run most games great you should be fine too.  I would make sure all drivers are up to date, Windows is updated, check to m…
  • According to John Carmack the bandwidth limit that the Quest can use with the link cable is around 150mbs. This is for the video signal and the tracking information. So the official link cable shouldn't make a noticeable difference at all when compa…

Yea let us know if you have a computer that can run games and if you're willing to use the Oculus Link feature. If you are there are MANY more games that open up for you to play. Just on the Oculus store for Rift S games there are m…
  • Most adventure games are just like escape rooms but in more than one room. Dark Matter would by good for you. Lots of puzzles with no combat. I Expect You To Die is another one you should like. You should be looking up puzzle games. They are basica…
  • https://tickets.oculusvr.com/hc/en-us/requests/new This is your only option.
  • This isn't anything people here can help you with. Your best bet is to open a ticket with Oculus support and see what they can do. https://tickets.oculusvr.com/hc/en-us/requests/new Sorry and good luck

Did you check in Windows to make sure your audio device is set to the Oculus headset? I had the same thing happen to me and for some reason my computer was using the Nvidia High-Defension output as it's sound device. I just changed …
  • I agree that stand alone headsets are the future. My Wish List for New Headsets: * Wireless PCVR with no downgrade of the image quality with low latency * Foveated rendering with eye tracking so what you're looking at looks great * Have an option…

 A 2080 can run Boneworks at 144Hz on an Index so yea a 3080ti will be nice for it too. My point was that the resolution of the new HP headset is very high and will require a 3080ti if you want to get the maximum frame rate that the…
  • Also,  You might want to do a cheap CPU/MB upgrade. You have a MASSIVE bottleneck with that CPU/GPU combo. According to the link below you are bottlenecking that GPU by around 75%. https://pc-builds.com/calculator/Core_i5-4430/GeForce_RTX_2070/0v2…

  • What is a "way splitter"? Please post a picture or a link. If it's what I think it is you will have to stop using it because the Rift is getting it's power from the USB and you're not providing enough power to the Rift. But I could be wron…

We will see. Based on how the cameras are setup I think the tracking might not be as good as the Rift S but that's only based a few images I have seen. Plus there is no top camera so to me this things just seems like a resolutions b…

Yea I'm thinking of getting them for my brother. I convinced him to get a Quest so we can watch movies together with BigScreen VR and play Pavlov together. The one complaint he has with the Quest is the audio and I know he will not …
  • I'll pass until I see some really great reviews that blow me away. The positions of the cameras don't seem like it would have better controller tracking than a Quest. It might have comparable tracking to the Rift S. I would still rather have a Valve…
  • What everyone already said. Having both options is the best option IMO.  I don't get sick in VR ever. Maybe it's related to the reason why I have never been sea sick even in 15 foot waves out in the middle of the ocean. But then you take my brother…
