If only they'd release better controllers. Bigger and with much much better vibration motors.
Maybe I can build a house with all the boxes from stuff I've bought off RFD

oh that's a good deal, I wish the subtotal was actually lower though, I have price protection on my credit card but it doesn't work on the total, only the subtotal which in this case hasn't changed :(

Lol I never knew more plastic and better vibration motors cost upwards of 700$ to manufacture

I already got one from Amazon 2 weeks ago. Someone convince me to return it in the middle of a pandemic and get ~$70 back.

What are your thoughts, is it returnable? I'm pretty impatient to receive mine since it has a estimated date of late July, could do what you did and just get one from amazon.

$70 gets you a few games, so if you can stomach waiting between getting it and your return, it's worth it.

I did return few things last week, canadapost was so full of people's returned packages the clerk told me to just leave it on the counter and she'll scan it eventually. I did with the knick-knacks I was returning but probably not a $600 toy.

Nah it's fine, keeping it. Already got top few native quest games.

Yes, Amazon, fast shipping to your hands, and easy returns.

Is Quest the one where you can’t play a Steam/Origin/etc games and can only play the Select few games they have by Oculus?

Edit: Who does Oculus ship their stuff with?

No, you can play all games by using a long USB C cable to your computer. (Or wirelessly with virtual desktop app). I downgraded from the Vive Pro to the Quest. Worth the $1000 savings every day of the week.

So you can play any game on ANY platform, doesn't have to be a Oculus/Rift games?

It used to be the case Oculus Quest can only play native Oculus Quest games. But they've added a new feature a few months ago to allow you to use it as a PCVR headset by connecting the Quest to a PC through a USB cable. It can also stream games wirelessly in VR with the Virtual Desktop app.

I'm in the same boat as you. I figure I'll wait till Quest 2 comes out to make a decision. Meanwhile I have a stack of PC games that I haven't even touched yet Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes
