The time has come to make a gift either by christmas, a birthday or just a craving that you want to give and do not know if to buy the Goal Quest 2 it may or may not be a good idea. In this article I will try to solve some of the most general doubts that you may have to guide you a little in the purchase if you are really interested.
As many of you already know, the Meta Quest 2 are the ancient and called Oculus Quest 2 that changed name when Facebook changed its holding company to the Target company, so in this case we find the same product.
But let’s stop rolling and come to the point to explain some of the most common doubts you may have and try to solve them.
Will Project Cambria replace Meta Quest 2?
This is the first question to answer and we can now firmly say that Project Cambria will not replace Meta Quest 2 or that says John Carmack on his own twitter that we can read below
An important point here is that the” project Cambria ” product will *NOT* replace Quest 2, it will be sold alongside it. Quest 2 will have a long life. https://t.co/6S7ARZwfS9

This makes sense, since Quest 2 is an input device to this technology with a fairly tight price and specifications that have little to envy to the competition. But in addition, we have to keep in mind that Quest 2 is intended to be a Virtual Reality Console and for that reason it must be economical and have a long life.
Even so, if you don’t know whether to wait for the new Virtual Reality viewer of the Target company and you have doubts if the Quest 2 is really the product you want to buy, I recommend you keep reading.
Is it worth buying a Meta Quest 2?
Price € 349.00
Price € 349.00
Many of you ask the question of if the Quest 2 is really worth it for the possible release of a new device in 2022. And the first question we’re going to try to solve is precisely that. Will a new Meta viewer come out in 2022?
The quick response and from what we could see in the Connect is that if, it’s called the Cambria project. and we know practically nothing about him, only the statements that were made in the Connect where he indicated that the viewfinder would have many more sensors and specifications and that it would be much more expensive than Quest 2.
From the few videos that were leaked, we could see that this Cambria project it will have some considerable improvements in front of the Quest 2, but what we have to be clear is as they have said, that the product will not be so cheap. So the question you have to ask yourself is ¿I’m willing to pay much more for a VR viewer or my budget can not exceed 350€? Once you answer that question, you’ll know what to do.
If the answer is that it is not worth paying more money, then if you are interested in buying a Quest 2, because by specifications and price it is the most versatile VR viewer you can find on the market.
Do I buy the 128gb Quest 2 or the 256Gb Quest 2?
At the time of buy the Meta Quest 2 you will have to make a decision, and that is to choose the model that really fits your budget depending on the space they have. In the past the decision was perhaps a little simpler, since there was a much bigger difference between versions. But today 128Gb is a very viable solution.
It’s true, we already have game that occupies more than 50Gb of space inside the viewer, but the current trend is that the most complex games do not exceed 15Gb storage, being the norm to find them for less than 5GB. Perhaps, moving on these values, the decision to buy a 128Gb Quest 2 be the most successful, since you save 100€.
Now, if you’re going to want to give a broader purpose to the device such as take it on a trip and take several movies in their storage to be seen. Or simply you don’t want to delete any of the games that you installed. Then I would recommend you to buy the Quest 2 of 256Gb, since you will certainly be right.
What happens if I delete any of the games? Will I lose them? What about saved games?
The entire Quest 2 ecosystem it is based on Android, the most used operating system in mobile phones and as such has its own shop inside the device. What does this mean? So whate the games you will have to buy in that store and the purchase will remain registered to your name with your username and password, allowing you install it as many times as you want no problem.
What about saved games yes that was a small problem we were dealing with the Quest 2, but since the last update already all this was solved. With the V35 on the street, already we’ll be able to back up everything what our games have in the cloud, allowing if we delete one or format the Quest restore absolutely all data.
And what’s interesting about this system is that it is completely transparent for the user and for the developer, as the backup will be done fully automatically.
What accessories would be interesting to buy with Quest 2?
I do not want to hook up much with this section since on the Youtube channel you have various videos where I talk about accessories worth it for Quest 2but I’m going to recommend the 2 that are fundamental if you buy this Virtual Reality viewer.
Price € 45.99
The first accessory that i recommend it is the BOBOVR M2, a fastening system that will make the elastic tapes that come as standard become completely obsolete. With this gripping system pressure is distributed between the forehead and the nape of the neck, so that the visor does not tighten your face as it happens with other systems.
A version of BOBOVR M2 Pro that has a system of magnetic battery what we provide about 3 more hours of use that you can buy it in Aliexpress. The M2 Pro is the one I use right now and for me it has been an impressive change for the better and without worrying about running out of battery.
And finally this accessory is fully recommended, are the VR Cover. They are interchangeable facials that make the visor once it is glued to your face not as uncomfortable as the one that comes standard And eye! Because the one that comes now is already something more comfortable than in its previous versions.
You can buy it in your official store and although on Amazon they usually sell them, they are currently out of stock. And be careful with the latter, since every year the stock of Oculus/Meta visors has been broken for Christmas! So if you are clear don’t think about it much more!
