  • with the zip pay $50 cashback, it's $519.
    what a baragin

  • i wish 64gb also has discount…

    • I plan to use it mostly on the PC, but wouldn't 64gb get filled pretty quickly given games nowadays?

      • The occulus games not really they are like 4gb a game. Some even less..

        PC games will all be on the computer streamed from virtual desktop or via the link cable.

      • Nah the ones on the occulus are like phone games. So pretty small. Most are like 1-2gig.

  • Remember you'll need a Facebook account to operate the device. No Throw-away accounts either as you'll get banned and being banned also means losing the attached games in the library.

    Other than that — it's a great entry point for VR.

    • I think that makes it a bit no for me. They have absolutely no reason to know such level of personal information just to use their headset.

    • I knew about the facebook account only stuff but the throw away account thing is ridiculous… Looks like ill never own an oculus like never having a Facebook account… Lol

      • I only plan on buying one game from oculus (Vader Immortal) and the rest of my use would be on PC. Decisions.

        • Honestly at the price its worth it.
          Basically I'm like you, using Virtual desktop to play games from Steam and games from my RIFT library.. a couple were carried across from a rift purchase to a 'quest version which was nice i guess - but most weren't even if they had a quest version (looking at you Superhot). Love the pick up and play aspect, screens are a big step up from the Rift .. but they can go a lot further. Don't expect not to see pixels or 'god rays' from the freznel lenses - they still have a very small sweet spot that makes me have to have the headset higher on my face then feels quite right. I bought Vader.. and Beat Saber - just so I can take the headset anywhere and play it / demo to friends otherwise a USB C cable to my GPU and its easy to get the desktop games going. I'd say you only need 64 .. but wth this discount I think the 256 is just good 'future proofing' and will help re sale value.

    • With all the cameras and sensors on oculus, facebook now knows where your home is and how it look like, how you and your family look like, what stuff you watch and play, what you talking with you family about all day, and all the same information of you friends if they have a oculus.
      yea I'm sure facebook is just an innocent company that definitely wouldn't exploit our information in the dark, and NSA would had no interests hacking the shit out of us.

  • I bought my 64gig on launch, absolutely love it. Don't really need the extra space but some of the newer games are getting bigger and I expect this trend to continue.

    At this point I would recommend picking up the larger memory one as it will get used in the long run.

  • $519 is amazing

    The 64GB version is currently $479 which is already a great price. $40 extra for the 256GB using the zip deal, Epic!

    Got one.

    • 64gb comes down to 431 with zip :)

      • Good point, great price too. $88 price difference between them.

        • I'm on the fence, not sure if I need the extra storage

          I had the quest 1 and managed to sell it for 700 the day before quest 2 was (officially) announced

          Ill sleep on it and see what I'm thinking when it's not 2am ;)

          Hopefully 64gb model has a sale at some point

  • This is a good price on a decent headset. Although it may be a strong case of borrowing from the future for the present;

    Facebook's gameplan with VR is obvious. They want to own it and turn it into a closed garden - and they're halfway there with this headset.

    I mean, VR is kinda small potatoes right now, but it's difficult to think that once the tech and ecosystem is good enough, that's not the natural end point for computing interactions. Something that gives you unlimited screen real estate everywhere you go, lets you do all the computing you do now, and then adds in full surround immersive computing to boot.

    So imagine if AOL from the 90s had succeeded with their closed garden internet… now imagine it's 40 years later, but it's not AOL and it's called Facebook instead.

    I'm not sure I want Zuckerberg as unofficial dictator president of our united cyber internet thing.

    • That might be thinking too far ahead… The Oculus Quest is a gaming device, not a lifestyle one like a mobile phone, smartwatch or smart AR glasses.

      They are working on Augmented Reality, as are big companies like Apple and Amazon, but the oculus quest is way too primitive for that kind of usage scenario. So if your intention is to play VR games: just buy it.

      you don't really need to worry about the creepy dystopian future that Facebook is planning where everyone is wearing a cloud-connected Facebook data gathering device…. because that will happen anyway even if you don't buy the product.

    • Normalshits don't care about privacy, DRM, walled gardens, exclusivity, right to repair. They'll brag about binging netflix when they crush bitrates and forced people to use specific intel cpu and microsofts browsers to access 4k content.

      They'll gladly pre-order digital products. Hand over all their private information for the world to see.
      Your warning is valid, but the crowd is not willingly to remain free of corporate (profanity)

  • I bought the 64gb about a month ago and it's the best purchase I made all year I'd say. This is a steal if U can get the 257gb for 519. If you are on the fence jump on it, especially if new to VR, it will blow your mind.

    • If you are on the fence jump on it

      Umm, I'd advise against doing that…

      • No need to neg the above comment, he's obviously just protecting fences. Fences have feelings too.

        Also, whoosh to the negger. Nothing goes over your head, your reflexes are too fast.

  • Hows the motion sickness level on this model?

  • If it weren't for the facebook fiasco I probably would have bought this.

  • Thanks op and zip pay adviser, been waiting for a black Friday deal on oq2.

    Bought it with zip pay for about 520 all up.

  • Thanks op, been waiting on a deal for the quest 2. Now to find a decent cable for oculus link.

  • Buy it through the Amazon Mobile app for another $10 off. Just got to make sure you redeem the promotion though, it should be on the listing.
    With Zip pay cashback, I just got this for $509.

  • The rift s is also 15% off

    • The Rift S is being discontinued soon. The Quest 2 is the newest and only costs $20 more.

  • Wish I could return my 64gb version to Amazon and buy this :( but past the 30 day return window

    • Maybe it's a prime or covid thing, but I bought mine on release and my Amazon's account says I can return up until 31 January 2021.

      So I might just return to get this bigger storage unit too.

  • How to use zip pay?

  • Also get free Asgard’s Wraith if using Oculus Link with PC if activate Quest 2 before 31st Jan https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/583604

  • I just bought a 64gb from oculus. Can I send it back?

  • Can I take the advantage of both cashback: Zip pay (10%) and shopback (10%)?

  • Should I also buy the Elite Strap?

  • As someone who has a 64gb Version - you don't really need the bigger HD - at least this point in time. I've got a shedload of sideloaded games (all the ports of Doom/Half-Life/RTCW/Quake/Q2, all other half decent sidequest games) and a few real games installed and I'm at 56GB. Most games seem around the 2-6GB mark each.

    The rest I play via Link on PC.

    I think there's a promotion on at the moment to get Asgards Wrath (link - so need a good PC) free if you activate this month - they just changed it to all prior owners too (as that pissed off a lot of people like me!) so get on it if you havent already. I havent tried it as its over 100GB to install!

    The thing I like about this the most at the moment is watching 3D movies. haha. Also Recroom is awesome.

    • Wouldn't the extra storage help for movies?

      • Ah I just use Plex via Bigroom. A 3D movie is anywhere from 15-25GB each.

        Also, Virtual Desktop is a must for wireless link gaming.

    • Thanks for making my mind up on which size to get :)

      Also, how do you watch your 3D movies? I have a collection of 3D blu-rays I would like to watch on this.

      • I watch via my Plex server (wirelessly) using 3D encoded rips in the Bigroom (social cinema app).
        Not sure how you'd go about directly watching from a blu-ray for 3D.

  • Does the $50 come up when you pay on Zip pay?

  • Thanks OP! Perfect christmas present for my SO seeing that we won't be getting our hands on a PS5 anytime soon. Got it for $509 with ZipPay.

    edit: just cancelled my order and ordering in 3hrs time for that 12% cashback for amazon in 3 hours time

    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/585945

  • Cancelled my order and re-ordered with the Shopback 12% as well along with Zip Pay. Fingers crossed it all gets tracked. Brings it down to $450.72 assuming the Shopback 12% is off the original $569 purchase price.

  • Ended up cancelling the 256GB and ordered the 64GB, around $380 after discounts.

  • Oh damn, just realised the 12% deal from shopback was for 1 hour only. Missed the timeframe

  • Is anyone's zip cashback not showing up yet? The full cost of oculus is showing but not the credit…

  • Just got mine delivered. Happy days

  • Also there's the $15 Shopback referral if you're not already a user (if that works with the $50 from Zip). Pretty good deal

  • For people on the fence, this promotion finish in 3 hours 40 minutes
