Oculus Quest announced: a wireless VR headset for $399

Oculus vice president Hugo Barra said Quest combined the capabilities of Rift and the portability of Go, the current headgear in the company's lineup, with a strong focus on games. However, we haven't yet had the opportunity to try out the Oculus Quest so we'll reserve judgement. The standalone virtual reality headset, introduced by Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerburg during the Oculus Connect 5 keynote on Wednesday, operates without phones or cables and will sell for $399. So, to get there, Zuckerberg announced the Oculus Quest, a new $399 VR headset coming in the spring that's created to answer numerous complaints people have about VR technology.

Oculus will include two of the Rift's Touch controllers with the Quest in order to provide a consistent, yet familiar method of interacting with objects in virtual space. The device launches next spring and will have 50 titles available at launch, including the critically acclaimed Moss.

In terms of specs, Facebook didn't reveal the full details but has stated that the Quest has the same display resolution as per Go at 1600 x 1440 per eye. However, we aren't exactly sure what hardware is powering the Oculus Quest to accomplish this.

'Husband Is Not Master Of Woman': SC Says Adultery Not A Crime
Most countries have abolished law against adultery, the court added. "Legal sovereignty of one sex over another is wrong". The court also struck down part of Section 198 of the Criminal Procedure Code dealing with adultery, LiveLaw reported.

Oculus launched a cheaper version of a standalone VR headset, the Oculus Go, which went on sale for $199 earlier in the year. Insight gives you a greater sense of immersion, presence, and mobility, plus the ability to go beyond room-scale.

As previously mentioned, the Oculus Quest is supposed to rival the quality found on the higher-quality Rift which is required to be plugged into a computer.

Mobile VR headsets - what are your best options?

Then again, we haven't exactly seen much in the way of AAA support for VR in the first place.
