Facebook paralyzed the sale of its Oculus Quest 2 due to a problem with the viewfinder. Apparently, the material used inside the glasses (the one that is in contact with our face), caused some reaction among some users, so the brand decided to stop the sale and production of its viewers to solve the problem. Well, the new version is now available.
New 128GB Oculus Quest 2
The first thing that will draw attention in the new model is that it now has a 128GB capacity, forgetting forever the 64 GB that for some users were scarce after installing so many games. Beyond the memory increase, the viewer remains exactly the same, as before, so there will be no changes at the hardware level. This update has been simply to fix the problem with the problematic material and to increase the minimum capacity of the device.
Remember that the Oculus Quest 2 it differed from the original version (already discontinued) by including new screens of higher resolution to reach 1,832 x 1,920 pixels, and can also enjoy a refresh of up to 90 Hz (and 120 Hz in some games). It also included a new grip band with which to hold the visor more comfortably and effectively, offering a system of adjustable straps that tighten the visor better in the skull than the velcro bands of the first version.
Is it worth the change?
Just because of the new resolution offered by the new viewer, the change is quite important, although possibly the experience remains the same if we take into account that all applications are still compatible in both viewers. In that case, if you already have a first generation Oculus Quest, you may not be in a special hurry to acquire the latest generation, although if you are encouraged to do so, you can always play a few multiplayer games with both viewers, which is not bad either.
Where can I buy this new version?
The new version with 128 GB (also available in the maximum capacity of 256 GB) you can buy from now through the official website of Oculus, being able to book a unit through Amazon to receive it next September 3 at home (if you buy it now, the Oculus store guarantees delivery by Monday August 30). The advantage is that now you’re paying the same price we had to pay for the 64gb model, being able to obtain double the capacity, but as always, there will be the space occupied by the operating system itself, so that there will be 128 GB free, that you get.
