Pick Up & Play With the Best Self-Contained VR Oculus QUEST 2

Have you been interested in a VR headset but don’t want to bother with having to tether it to a high-powered gaming PC or set up motion sensors and cameras?

Or maybe you just don’t want to splash more than a week’s wages on it?

Facebook, now known as Meta, has been offering just this since 2019 with their Oculus QUEST. Its successor, the Oculus QUEST 2, has one-upped itself and secured its place as the best self-contained VR headset on the market.

The Oculus QUEST 2 has a lightweight and sleek design that means you can slash to the beat, survive in a battle royale with your friends or climb a mountain for hours comfortably. All you need is a Facebook account to log in.

More than just a gaming console, you can meet up virtually with your friends, attend a live concert, sync it up to your workspace, or simply watch a movie with the Oculus.
