Also in contrast to the Go, the Oculus Quest can run both mobile and PC VR games. It's fairly cheap too, starting at $399 for the 64GB model that comes with Oculus Quest and two Oculus Touch controllers.

Zuckerberg outlined a couple things he believes are needed for a truly great VR experience.

The Quest, according to Zuckerberg, hits all three of these beats. And yes, there's lens-spacing adjustments.

The Quest looks slightly different than the Santa Cruz, coming with a more curved design than either the Go or Rift. This innovative system uses four ultra wide-angle sensors and computer vision algorithms to track your exact position in real time without any external sensors. We'll have more as the story develops today at Oculus Connect. Resolution on the Oculus Go is listed as 2560×1440 (1280×1440 per eye), which would make the Oculus Quest superior to either the Rift or the Go. Insight gives you a greater sense of immersion, presence, and mobility, plus the ability to go beyond room-scale. So you can take it between your home, your office and your friend's home and it'll remember its guardian setup for each.

In the new regulatory paradigm, cryptocurrency exchange platforms can advertise in both Japan and the United States. Advertisers will be able to apply for certification once the policy launches in October.

He also noted that backward compatibility is a major priority for Oculus products.

"This is it", Zuckerberg said. And presumably we'll see an upgraded Rift-if that's what they're calling headsets that connect to PCs-at some point after the Quest launches.

Some other titles shown off during the keynote included Lone Echo II, Space Junkies, Stormland, Vox Machinae, Project Tennis Scramble, Superhot VR, Face Your Fears 2, Dead & Buried, Deflector, Final Assault, and an entirely new Star Wars project built specifically for Quest called Vader Immortal.
