I purchased an Oculus Quest 2 as a substitute of the PS5
I’ve been queuing for a PS5 for almost a year, with no success on the various PS5 refills. So my partner and I decided to just stick with our good ol ‘Xbox One. That was unfortunately over when our cat tipped it off the shelf and broke it.
You might think it’s a strange alternative, but that’s exactly what interested us. I’ve never tried VR before but the idea of diving into the games sounded great. If you compare the price, at $ 299, the Oculus Quest 2 is way cheaper than the $ 499 for PS5, so we took a chance and bought one. We learned a lot in just a few weeks.
We had to buy something to replace it and that’s when we came across the Oculus Quest 2.
Oculus Quest 2’s fit and comfort
As soon as the Oculus Quest 2 is properly seated, it hugs the face and feels comfortable. Previously there were complaints of rashes from the foam interface; However, our model came with the silicone case that was issued to resolve this issue. After using the Oculus Quest 2 several times, none of us showed any skin irritation. The only criticism of the fit was that when I looked at my nose I could still see out through a small gap.
First of all, the Oculus Quest 2’s straps are fiddly to find the right fit on your head. There’s a strap with Velcro, but the other two that go around the head are more cumbersome to thread and switch. It’s fine if only you play on the console because once you’ve set it up, it’s safe and you don’t have to watch it again. But if more than one of you is using it, it becomes a hassle.
At 1.1 pounds, the Quest 2 headset is pretty light, though it takes some getting used to. My partner didn’t notice it anymore, but I still feel it when I start a new session.
A small but important point is the storage of this console. It’s a cumbersome shape, and with two controllers you’ll have to empty a drawer as it doesn’t look good on the display. You can buy a case separately, but one should really be included to protect it from damage.
