Why all the secrecy?

Why all the secrecy about the rerelease of the Quest 2.  It's been a month and supposedly all that was being done was adding a silicone shield.  Just give us a date and we will wait patiently.

What secrecy? Oculus said August 24 a month ago.

Today is August 24. The 128GB model is available (yes, in Australia) on the oculus store right now.

Hmm? Quest 2 was released back in 2020, mate!

He said "re-release". Which some folks are waiting on.

Think the OP means the new 128Gb version.  It's now available at both my local (Australia) Amazon and Oculus store.

I'm still waiting for my free silicon cover order to be processed and shipped (Oculus est. early next month) but I'm in no hurry since I already got the free VR Cover replacement facial interface a few months ago.  I'll be interested to see which one I prefer.

 

Just another secret; v32 rollout is just around the corner, lol!

Ah, that's right! My bad. I totally forgot that Quest 2 is getting an official re-release with a new base version. Very nice 😊

Apparently, oculus does not scan this board.  Instead we can all share misinformation regarding the "rerelease."

Doesn't anybody find it odd that the company has remained mum on the subject.  Makes you wish there was an alternative.

Also, Tom Oculus has not been rereleased in Australia, if you read on amazon says it is unavailable.   Oh never mind the Easter Bunny just dropped one off at my house.

@stewpitt the link I already provided you to Amazon Australia shows the 128Gb version is in stock.  Maybe make sure to select the 128Gb button to see this.  Shows me it could be delivered to me by 29 Aug 2021.  Really not sure if you missed this or you're just trolling mate?
