Saturday, 04 May, 2019

Popular use cases for these new robust VR publishing outlets include employee training, employee recruitment, sales & marketing presentations, and client communications. Both the virtual reality (VR) headsets are priced at $399 (approximately Rs 27,749) for the base variants.

The company has also published its predictions for VR-headset shipments in 2019. Without this step, the user will not be able to install apps from the Oculus store, or sync the Touch Controllers to the headset.

The new Oculus Rift S VR headset is equipped with two 1280 x 1440 pixel displays offering a combined resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. Our first all-in-one solution, Oculus Go opened up the possibilities of VR to a wider audience than ever before. You can pre-order the Oculus Quest here and the Oculus Rift S here. We've had our hands on the exciting new device, and will be bringing you a detailed review in the coming weeks. It's also the same solution used with Oculus Rift S. "For example, think of an organization that wants to use VR with its customers, but needs a much better and immersive experience than mobile VR (on a phone) can offer, but realizes the challenges (and potential hazards) of using a tethered headset".

While the price of the Rift S is less than the original Rift, as we reported the device makes some compromises. The Rift S can access the same gaming library as the Rift. Building on the Oculus VR experience for Samsung's Gear VR, the Oculus Quest launches with 50 titles ready to go. In the United Kingdom and European Union, this includes Currys, PC World, FNAC and MediaMarkt.

If you are impressed with its design and new set of features, and made a decision to order this device now, then you can now pre-order it from Microsoft's official Store. Shipping for both products begins May 21.
