I think this first iteration by using Link and being able to hook up to PC will be a good first start, albeit will certainly have some rough around the edges. Along with the way cool hand/finger tracking that will be coming. I have no doubt Rift S will still have better experience - for now. Likely why Oculus decided to team up with Lenovo to produce it for a while, whilst continuing development on their vision for a Quest like overall device.
The quest will not be as good on PC because of latency and will not look as good because of compression due to the USB connection. It will be interesting to hear the reviews of how big of a difference. A 90 refresh rate was considered but was not done because the FCC would have to recertify it. I have both the rift and the quest so I guess I'll stick with using both for a bit. Wi fi wirless connection was considered but it was felt quality could not be a given. I was a bit disappointed about the PC quality spoken of but over time maybe it will go 100% the other way. Oculus always strives to improve.
I saw a link in these forums to an interview that said Oculus Quest hooked up to the PC looked really close to a Rift -S. Now you have to ask yourself this question. If it is very close to looking like a Rift S and is also going to get a lot more features. Then would you still pay £399 for a Rift S or £399 for an Oculus Quest? My choice by far would be to purchase the Oculus Quest if the article I saw was correct.I predicted they wouldn't have a lot to say about PC -VR and it would be more about Oculus Quest, but given Oculus Quest can now connect to PC-VR, they were taliking about PC -VR when talking about Oculus Quest 😄
Facebook has made a public statement to help address all the premature hyperbole.We started with the Quest platform first – and we’re going to listen to the feedback from Quest and will look at tackling the technical challenges of bringing it to other devices.
