The Oculus Quest 2 is a wireless VR headset designed to offer an amazing experience without costing the Earth.

We were wowed by the gadget’s value for money in our Oculus Quest 2 review.

But the headset recently came under fire after several users reported experiencing face rashes due to a reaction with the headset’s foam cover.

The brand new version has a silicone face cover that should put a stopper to this.

Excitingly, the built-in storage on the Oculus Quest 2 has now doubled from 64GB to 128GB.

It’s now the standard version of the Oculus Quest 2, and costs the same £299.

There’s also a pricier model listed with a whopping 256GB of storage.

This means you can feed even more apps on the VR headset than before.

In all other ways, the new Oculus Quest 2 is identical.

Here’s the verdict from our original Oculus Quest 2 review…

Our Oculus Quest 2 review verdict – October 2020

When VR had its big breakthrough a few years ago, it was prohibitively expensive.

Then came a load of cheaper headset, but these significantly degraded the experience.

Now the Oculus Quest 2 has found the perfect middle-ground: it’s reasonably priced, and offers a mind-blowing VR experience.

It’s seriously good value for money at £299, and I reckon it’s a better buy than a console right now.

We’ve all played the same old console games, but VR opens up a whole new world of fun.

And the fact you can stream it to the telly or a phone while you play makes it more social too.

One of VR’s big advantages is that it’s intuitive.

You’re interacting with things using your hands just like in real-life.

So even people with zero experience playing video games can get involved. That’s not the case if you tried to sit your Nan down at the Xbox on Call of Duty.

This is one of the best gadgets released in recent years, and you’re genuinely missing out if you don’t buy one.

The Sun says: Facebook’s Oculus Quest 2 is the first must-have virtual reality gadget. It’s worth every penny. 5/5
