No account is permanently tied to the device. You can create a new account, and thus a new name.

This actually prompts me to go close my facebook account that I havnt used for years.
Stay strong, situation always looks harder and that it will never end when you are in the middle of it, but remember past experiences, everything has an ending.

If I buy the Quest 2 and I have a Quest 1, I assume that I don't have to re-buy games, but would I be able to use the same game in both headsets at the same time? Does anyone know if I two of my kids can play against each other both using my account at the same time?

Same here. I was so ready for this quest. But cant find anything right now in the market that sums the
- price
- wireless
- features
- processor

Anyone has any recommendations please let me know too. I'm not interested in wired.

Please read again. I never said it was tied to device.
only price errors are true deals - such is the philosophy of RFD.

Sorry, not following. What if it is a gift for someone else? Are you saying they have to use an account with my name?

Those that say there is a lot of fear mongering in this thread, need to watch "The Social Dilemma" on netflix, where former facebook employees expose the dark side of FB/Insta/snap etc...

Gahh RedFlagDeals....I pre-ordered last night and after reading reviews and reflecting more on the cost, cancelled it just now.

Looking forward to one day when ALL VR headsets will be affordable and good.

Did you order from Oculus directly or another website? Does it give you a tracking number?

BTW, facebook login aside, Quest 2 is a dud and worse than Quest technically.

I'm sure the whole point is to make a cheaper less technical device to take a lot of people onboard and try to create a critical mass for FB applications. Then it'll be virtual meetings and what not.
