Do you need a PC to set up an Oculus Quest?

The game Angry Birds VR Isle of Pigs will be available for Oculus Quest

The newly announced Oculus Rift S VR Headset is a new-generation headset which comes with a set of improved features.

The default version of Oculus Quest with 64 GB storage costs $399, but there's a 128 GB version available for $499.

As for availability, the Oculus Quest S can be pre-ordered from the Oculus website, alongside Amazon, Best Buy, Newegg, Walmart, and GameStop in the US. For those with a Windows 10 PC and dedicated graphics card, the Rift S is an improved version of the Oculus Rift for those who want the most immersive and graphically attractive experience possible. In addition to the games, the headset will also feature TV apps and Oculus Videos.

Oculus is looking to cover all bases with these two new head-mounted displays (HMD).

Neither Oculus nor Microsoft immediately responded to a request for comment. After Oculus released the Oculus Go, a standalone headset that doesn't require a PC to use, headset sales started to tick up, but he perennial question remained: What exactly is there to do in VR? While it may not have the sheer power of a VR PC, the Quest is absolutely the best non-PC VR option on the market.

Facebook on Tuesday opened up pre-orders for its two new Oculus Virtual Reality headsets, the Oculus Quest and Oculus Rift S. The devices will ship on May 21 for $399 each. It'll display an impressive 2880x1600 resolution (a bit of a bump from the Rift S), but at a lower 72Hz.

"For those with a Windows 10 PC and graphics card suited to PC gaming, Rift S gets you into the most immersive content that VR has to offer", Facebook says in a blog post. Rift S also packs Oculus' new inside-out tracking technology that is dubbed Oculus Insight, which means you don't need to have external motion sensors as there are five of them built directly into the Rift S headset that provide full positional tracking.
