Oculus Rift S and Quest to Finally Go On Sale Starting May 21st

Both VR Headsets Available for Pre-Order Now

Facebook first announced the Oculus Quest seven months ago, and the Oculus Rift S last month. Now both will finally be available to purchase starting May 21st. In fact, fans can even pre-order both now ahead of time to ensure they get it ahead of everyone else.

The Oculus Quest is of course, the standalone all-in-one wireless unit. It does not need a PC or smartphone to run. It just requires the user have a headset and controller on their hands. Furthermore, it has six degrees of freedom, built-in audio and advanced optics.

Meanwhile, the Oculus Rift S improves upon the original Rift headset design co-developed with Lenovo. It features higher-resolution OLED display and Inside-Out tracking capabilities. It requires a capable PC to run unlike the Quest.
