Facebook’s “Checkmate”, Quest 2 has highest specs, cheapest price (Leak)

Facebook Reality Labs aims to change the world by selling an all-in-one portable VR headset equipped with the most powerful processor on the market, best graphics seen on any VR device thus far, and all for the price of a next-gen console. The original Oculus Quest disappeared from store shelves recently, and we have rumors of the new Oculus Quest 2 coming in at $399 USD for the 64GB version and $499 USD for the 256GB version (that’s twice the size of the biggest model last-gen).

Today’s story featured on RealGamerNewZ:

This second generation device from Facebook will be much different though. While the original Quest was a success and signaled the future growth potential for VR Gaming, it was still seen as too new, too expensive, or just not a good enough value proposition by many skeptics who enjoy the flooded free to play market on consoles and PC as well as on Nintendo Switch and mobile devices.

You can check out our review of the Oculus Quest on RealGamerNewZ.com and why we absolutely love it.

Oculus Quest 2 will be very different though, again, as we said. And this is now known to us because of a leaked set of videos which were likely meant for Facebook Connect (the big event happening Wednesday, September 16, 2020, combined with a rumored leak of retail pricing.

In these videos we can clearly see the previously rumored Oculus Quest 2 with its white color scheme and focus on increasing comfort for the end user. Of course, that probably wouldn’t be enough to get people excited and buying them up by the millions by itself, but it’s great that VR is constantly improving on comfort.

Instead, the SPECS are what steal the show here.
